Sanibel, Seashells & Sunshine

My husband and I are a week into our month of February "escape to the sun" trip. We are staying in Ft. Myers Beach. Today we went to Sanibel Island and collected shells along the beach in the bright sunshine. It is wonderful to be taking lots of walks in this warm weather. I'm feeling much better. God is so good. And His creation is never more beautiful than around the ocean. There were pink and dotted and all kinds of lovely shells in the sand. And we saw several unusual sea creatures that had washed ashore. My granddaughter identified them for me. At 7 years old she's something of an authority on sea creatures.
I can't believe it's been a year since I started my blog. Sometimes I think I should quit writing it because not many people read it. But then God reminds me that I'm doing it for Him and it's between Him and me & I do it because He told me to & I want to honor Him. It's not about anything else. And I enjoy doing it for God who has done so much for me. I'll post pictures of my trip if I can figure out how to do it from my iPad. I love all the friends I've made doing this-an unexpected bonus. "Wish you were here"!


  1. Glad to hear you're feeling better. Sometimes that kind of break rejuvenates our spirit as we truly appre iate the beauty of His creations. My family and I love going to the beach too. I love hearing the ocean roar. So powerful yet calming at times.
    Guess we will never know how many are encouraged by our writing. With the Lord, it's truly awesome to be able to write for Him. How awesome thru blogging I got to meet many spiritual siblings. Like you! Praying for your healing. God bless.

  2. Sorry... i meant "appreciate..." typing from my cell... :)

  3. I attended a business meeting on Captiva Island some years ago. I still remember the pink sand. Fabulous!

    So glad you've stuck with blogging. You've shared so much, with even more to bless us with, I'm sure!
