"Shell"

(by Fresh Body Shop)

Tonight, we're having an event called "Youtube on the Porch" at the student ministry building. We get together every once in awhile to watch random youtube videos, and one of our favorites is Marcel the Shell with shoes on:


The students want to watch it every time. {There's even a book now!} Marcel is quite the celebrity, but he's also a role model. Here's what his website has to say about him:

His name is Marcel, and he's partially a shell, but he also has shoes and a face, and lots of other great qualities as well. He won the hearts of millions of people when his short film became an internet sensation. And now he is pleased to present his very own picture book.

Marcel's message for his readers is simple and beautiful: we are who we are, and that is a wonderful thing. Marcel loves to talk about the different things that make him unique. He's proud of his odd, miniature life, (he hang-glides on a Dorito and wears a lentil as a hat), and even though he is a talking shell with only one eye, he reminds us to be proud and curious about our lives as well. Marcel shows us that no matter who we are or what our life is, the most important thing is that we take a good look at it and enjoy it every day.

Doesn't that just make you love him to pieces?!

Anyways, a couple of weeks ago, a new Marcel video was posted!!


"Guess why I smile a lot...uh 'cuz it's worth it."

Best. Line. Ever!

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! I should be back tomorrow with the song I've listened to the most. I know you just can't wait! ;)
