Today I took a fabulously LOOONNNG walk down the beach...

It was probably about 2 miles at my best guess, one way.

Along the way I was amazed at God's creation. The ocean, waves, breeze, landscaping, birds, dolphins, crabs, sunshine, shells, and people were all there displaying God's glory. I wonder how many actually recognize Him in the things around us, when to me He is so obvious and undeniable!

I was enjoying my walk and picking up shells here and there and noticed that so many of them were broken. I was looking for the perfect ones and then it hit me...

I am broken! I am imperfect and yet I want to be chosen! I want to be noticed by God and adored by Him.

At that point I began choosing shells that were broken, and in their brokenness they are beautiful in a different way, I have a couple of snail shells that if they were not broken, I could not see the beauty they hold inside. I pray that I could be broken in ways that display my inner beauty and the beauty the Lord has placed in my heart for the world to see.

I pray that it brings my Creator glory! I will try to post a picture soon, that goes with this!

What a bautiful post and a beautiful blog. I am adding you to my blog list.

Happy Easter!

Hope you will stop by my blog. I am a new blogger. This is my second month in the world of BLOG. I have a great give-away this month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party Give Away,(over 300) that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you mention blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...Just be sure and let me know that you did. How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally... I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members. In May, there will be some fun blogs coming from Disney World with the grandkids. I hope to blog every night, in case you like a good trip report. And there will also be a great Disney giveaway.
I am so thankful for all my new friends.
