  1. Julie, there are so many reasons to “Amen” in this writing! How you weave your words into a story of redemption, love, and worship. The beautiful filled emptiness that only God can provide is so eloquently described through the beauty of the shells and your descriptions. I loved the angel too. Thank you for being a light in this world. I love you sister. ❣️

    1. Dear sister, I pray God blesses and protects the time you have upcoming with your grandbaby girl. Thank you for joining me here. It was a unique experience with the Lord, communing with Him as He gave me Scripture and words with these shells. He truly is everywhere, in all things, through all things. All glory to Him on High! Love you too, Julie

  2. Thank you for taking us along on this beautiful vacation journey, Dear Julie! What amazing praise and lessons we find in His creation. I love how He set before you those shells with holes and those shells that were whole! Praise God for the transforming that He brings in us. And Praise Him for His holy angels that He sets among us. May we open our eyes to see more of His wonders all around us. Blessings and love to you today.

    1. Oh Bettie, this was a first for me. Communing with Him while I studied these shells. What wonder! What power! What absolute nearness of Our Lord in our lives. Thank you for the blessings sisters. I thank God for the love between us as He grows it and keeps it 🙂 I need to write two papers before Saturday. Gearing to begin today. Love, Julie

  3. If our “shells” have no holes, God’s Spirit fills us to overflowing so that we may bless others.

  4. Dear Julie, this thoughtful and insightful post reminds me of the book Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. In it, she writes about collecting different types of shells and the life lessons they had to teach her. Your words are similarly reflective, inspiring and helpful in their application for the Christian life and our often rocky, storm-hit walk of faith where waves can overwhelm. I can so relate to the shells with holes! 😉 God once gave me a poem about it which spoke of being like a sieve which His love and light could filter through. It was a comforting thought! I’m so glad you were able to enjoy a vacation and found it soul restorative. May the uplift it brings stay with you as you resume your busy life again. Blessings and love. xo ❤️

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts here Joy. That poem sounds like one I should read. Yes, God has filled my holes, but once in awhile I hear that echo again. Writing this post was an experience unlike any other. Thank you for that specific blessing of uplifting as my life grows into busy. I begin graduate studies Monday. May God in His mighty, unexpected ways, speak into your soul as you continue to glorify Him in your writing dear sister. Love, Julie

      1. Oh yes it worked! This “Light has a way of seeping through, turning fallowed ground to hallowed ground” and “Here lies hope, potential holy ground”. Wow! Thank you so much, Joy. My heart is stirred not shaken by your words :0
