Sand Dollar Heaven!
Today after vacation Bible School Andy and I went to the beach and fortunately we got there at just the right time. The tide was coming in and bringing with it, hundreds of crabs, shells, sand dollars and even some big starfish. I had a blast searching for shells and I did find 7 whole sand dollars out of the hundreds that were broken. It is so theraputic walking in the water and the sand searching for shells. I just love it! I feel like a kid again, everytime I find a sand dollar or a starfish or just a pretty shell and my heart leaps, as I race to pick it up. This may sound pretty silly to some, but as Andy reminded me today, he never thought I would be able to walk on the beach again, after my accident, so his heart also leaps when he watches me searching for sand dollars. It was so peaceful out there today even with the waves crashing in. I will never cease to be amazed at how something so beautiful can be so furosious and dangerous at the same time. I am thankful that God gave us the ocean to look at and enjoy, but I am also thankful that we have an appreciation for it's powerful and dangerous current. All in all, it was a great day!
