I love living on the bay and I am so thankful the Lord placed me here. My Lord and Savior also planned peaceful hobbies for me in eternity past, one of these hobbies is beach combing consisting of hunting for seaglass and sea shells.
This is a shot of the seaglass I found combing the little beaches on Aransas Bay, right off the little road my neighborhood is on. Just as God planted me in Rockport, Texas, He plants these little nuggets of beauty for me to find as well. I often talk to Him while I am searching the sandy little beaches and when I find a unusual amount of clear, it's come to represent clarity in what I'm praying for. This last hunt I found that heart shaped clear piece of glass situated on top of the green piece shown in the photo above, clearly a gift of love from my Heavenly Father.
I love the Lord so much. How can I not love a Father that knows what I need in my life and who gives it to me without even asking? He just put this sweet little leisure pursuit right in my back yard, so to speak, He put this calming little avocation right in front of me, I literally started collecting these ocean gems by looking down.
I have come to adore looking for shells and seaglass. They are treasures made by the hand of God himself. The shells are designed by God and the seaglass is tumbled by the waves of the ocean that He created. What's even more gracious is this pastime does not cost me a dime and the treasures I find are of more value to me than diamonds, fancy gem-stones, or precious metals. I have found them with the eyes God blessed me with and picked them up with the hands of the One that made me.
This beautiful blessing is just one more manifestation of God's unlimited grace. I am so thankful for seaglass, it represents His lovingkindness to me.
