when we were visiting friends earlier this summer... down south...
lil bit REALLY wanted to go to the beach.
kept asking me... "mom can we go NOW"?


she had one thing on her mind.
no... it wasn't to splash in the water...
to feel the sand between her toes...
to look out on the ocean...
nope...
though...
she did those things...
she was really there for one thing...
seashells!


it was almost like she heard them calling her.
to search them out...
to reach out for them...
to gather them up & hold them in her hand.


she found so many special shells that she started putting them in her pocket...
the one right near her heart.

it was neat to watch her...
and see the ones she would find.
she never picked one up & decided to throw it back down... no...
they were ALL keepers.
many were damaged...
broken...
had imperfections...
just didn't seem worthy.

i loved how she adored them all.
held them all special...
accepted them just as they were.


it sure got me thinking.
about His love.
for us.
and how we are all so very special...
ALL keepers!
