Incredible Creatures

Leave a comment

While on our vacation to Dauphin Island, Alabama we visited the Esturaium (their sea lab). Once a teacher, always a teacher and I have to take pictures and read every piece of information.WOW

When I homeschooled the boys this was something that drove them crazy. Every trip was a “learning experience” or “field trip”. I had to remember to just have fun sometimes….

At any rate, even though one son and daughter in law were with us, since he is almost 30 I figured I could leave the reading up to them.incredible creatures

There were several incredible creatures, but one in particular intrigued me. It was a purple spiny lobster. This guy’s colors were amazing. And I was so taken in by this guy that I probably got his name wrong!


But God created him.
With a purpose.
With his own special beauty.

Just like me….just like you.

How amazing is that? You too have your own special beauty. You too have a purpose.

Don’t doubt that you aren’t important or that you aren’t love



The purple lobster may never know…but maybe we can.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
