We can do it + seashells

I love this picture!! This past week has been a very big transition time for our family. If you haven't heard, we are about to put our house up for the market by the end of the week. I have been pretty shocked at how fast this has come, but I am very thankful that my dad has a job. He will leave in April to train in Pittsburgh, for 3-6 months, which will be even harder without him. But, We just have to remember Philippians 4:13. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Please pray for our family, as we are going through this big time of adjustment. I know this is not a huge deal, but it is still very hard on us. Thank you!
On a brighter note, we had a pretty good, very relaxing weekend, so that was nice. I got together with a couple of my friends, went to church and heard a great sermon, and then went to my grandmothers house for lunch. Nothing beats a grandma's cookin', right? It was very delicious. I always love going to her house! Her house is very cool! My grandfather was a botanist, and a big-time shell collector, so throughout her house she has many inspiring things. I love seashells also! When my grandfather was alive, when we had our 8th birthday, he would give us a collection of shells. There were 13 grandchildren, so it was always a big deal! When our extended family would go to the beach together, he would take us out for hours, looking at shells. Maybe this is why I love seashells and the ocean so much! I love the beautiful colors God put on every single shell, and how they're so different than each other. These are just some pictures of my favorite shells:

I Will post pictures soon of my real shelll collection... just be happy with these for now!:)
Sorry this is a pretty random!
