A Blessed Life

IMG_1428wm

I was enlightened earlier this week by a friend who provided good advice and wise counsel.

One – What we do here is all in good fun and FOR fun. I’ve mentioned that the Queen and I shell because we love it and have fun doing it. That is the sole purpose of this site – not money, not web traffic, not pride, not celebrity, but to have fun and share the fun we have with others. We are going to continue to do that, even if it means we have a poor night of shelling, the water was cloudy and all we found were broken shells.

It’s all about the journey and who you’re journeying with. I happen to think that the Queen is the best partner I could ask for along my journey.

Two – No matter who we meet, we want to make sure that after they meet us they leave blessed. That’s a practice we want to keep in perpetual motion.

Matthew 5:16 – In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

The Queen and I are very blessed people. We have been raised by good, Godly families. We have a good son, good jobs, a good home, a great marriage and a comfortable life. We are well traveled and are hoping for more. God has shown us much favor.

Apart from being a bombshell, the Queen is an artistic genius; she can get a craft idea in her mind and within minutes is sitting down and banging it out. Whether it’s a scrapbook page or a work of shell art, she’s very creative with an artistic, organized and administrative mind. She makes friends everywhere she goes. She has a great sense of humor and can keep up with mine, which I assure you is not an easy task. She really is the smartest person I know. Coupled with being stunningly beautiful, she is the total package. She is one I prayed to find before actually finding her.

She happened to be there all along until God finally slapped me, I opened up my eyes and he said “Hey dude, what about that good-lookin’ one right there?”

I have been blessed in more ways than I can count. God has given me a musical mind and allowed me to use that musical talent to supplement our income through a few TV shows. He’s given me the ability to write stories, songs and books and make musical compositions that I have been able to pass along to other artists so they can bless others with their music. He has given me a good job, surrounded by good people who I call friends.

This post is not to brag or boast about what we have. On the contrary, it is more about boasting about what God can do and has done through his mighty hand….and he can do the same for you.

It is our hope that through this blog, you too are blessed by what we share with you, even if it is just a short, simple walk along the sea picking up seashells. You reading this now for the first time – welcome to our journey. If you’ve been reading for a while, thank you for coming along with us. The best is most assuredly yet to come.

…and to our friend who offered that sage advice: Thank you. :)

  2. Thanks for such an insightful post. It’s always nice to learn a little about the people behind the blog and I always welcome a little unexpected guidance from The Lord, in the form of a verse that is often perfectly suited to my life at the moment.
