We especially enjoy finding sand dollars, but they are difficult to obtain in one piece. By the time they reach the shore the waves have beat them up till they are in small pieces. Most of the ones we locate are about the size of a quarter or less. They are known to get as large as 4 or more inches in diameter. You usually have to swim out beyond the sandbar and dive down to retrieve the larger ones, which we have never tried.
Along the shoreline many smaller sand dollars may be found, along with a variety of other types of shells. If you are persistent you will discover the unbroken ones. When I am searching for my treasures oftentimes I see other footprints in the sand, indicating that others have searched the same spot, but even though that’s true I still find some lovely shells intact, not beaten up or broken and I wonder “did they miss this one?” Which leads me to my point: If we are diligent when seeking God and His truths, we WILL find him!
45“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”
Jesus has made us this promise, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on him while he is near.”
So, the question remains...do you see what I see?
