It’s been a long time since I took my paddle board out on the water, but this day was the perfect. The breeze was nice and the water was as clear as glass. I always peruse the bay side because there is less wave action and the seashells are more plentiful, but because the water was clear on the gulf, I put in on the beach to see what I could find. There wasn’t much to see other than red tide particles floating just below the surface, until I came across a sand dollar grave yard. I picked up enough to finish filling my giant jar. Since it was nice out, I decided to keep going and rounded the end of the island at Boca Grande pass; there is a strong undercurrent in that area. I crossed the pass to an island and began finding all kinds of shells, making it one of my best shelling adventures. I seldom go into deep water, however, sometimes you have to cross a deep cut to fulfill your calling. The water can be treacherous, but collecting empty souls and giving them hope for a future can be all the incentive needed to do what God sent you to do. Venture out beyond your comfort zone and let God fulfill His work through you.
