April Showers Bring May Flowers


I can hear the rain outside my window. It has been raining ever since I walked out the door this morning. I don't like the wet, gloomy weather that much. I want the flowers to come. The flowers that everyone has been posting on their blogs. I know that flowers wouldn't grow in May without all the rain in April. I guess I just have to be patient. You know what they say, 'good things come to those who wait.'

It's interesting how it all works. I'm able to look forward to all the beautiful flowers May will bring. I imagine the lovely flowers we'll be planting in the backyard soon! It goes to show, even through some of the less fun times, there's always something you can anticipate.

Even though I may not like the rain, the flowers need it. Sometimes in our lives, things happen that we may not like. But God sees everything. That one little discomfort for us, may really benefit someone else. We need to trust Him ... trust that He knows what He's doing. Trust that He's got everything in control, and that after that rainstorm, the flowers will bloom just at the right moment.

Beauty

"You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you."


~Song of Songs 4:7


What is beauty? And what does it look like? Everyone has their own opinion, and think they know what it means. But when it comes down to it, there's only one opinion that really matters. Yours. To me, the first step to being beautiful is being happy with who you are! You've got to feel good with the skin your in! A smiling person is way prettier than someone who has a big frown spread across their face. My mom always told me that I had to like me before I could like anyone else. And she is so right!


After being happy, the rest kinda comes naturally. When you feel good, you show it! Your heart shines, and your inner beauty breaks free! I think everyone is beautiful, but for some people, it takes time for them to realize their true beauty. It's a journey for all of us. We all have those moments when we look in the mirror and start pointing out our flaws. Even worse, some point out other's flaws. But if we can just find happiness in life, we can find the beauty hidden beneath every heart.


No matter where I am on my journey, I know God is with me. He is the one who sees beauty in all! And without Him, I wouldn't be able to be completely happy in life. I wouldn't be able to live a beautiful life.

Liquid Sunshine Blog Party!

Liquid Sunshine @ HorseFeathers

There's a super fun blog party going on at Horsefeathers called Liquid Sunshine. There are a bunch of fun prizes to win, so go check it out! But hurry, it ends tonight! :)


Favorite season, and why? Fall! Or Autumn, whatever you want to call it! I love all the colourful leaves that sprinkle the trees! It's the season of change! Though right now I am kinda wishing for summer to come!


How would you describe your personal style? Hmmm... I don't really know how to describe it. I like skirts and dresses, but don't wear them as often as I'd like too. I also like jeans and colourful tops with nice designs. Maybe I should do a fashion post. A picture is worth a thousand words!


What's one weird thing you can do? (The stranger the better!) This is a hard one. I probably do a lot of weird things, but I just can't think of them at the moment.


Rain or shine? Both! I love those light, happy rainy days where the sun is still out and shining. But I also enjoy those hot summer days that are perfect for going to the beach.


Confession time... what's a flaw of yours? I worry too much about little things, and over-analyse to the point where I drive myself crazy!


Favorite music? A mixture of different genres. My favourite artists are Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Britt Nicole, and a new band I found on a blog called Anthem Lights.


Have you ever made a decision you instantly regretted? What was it? Well, I regret some stuff that I should've done, but didn't.


Who do you admire/look up to? My mom. She is such a strong believer in the Lord, and loves to help people in every way she can. <3


You've just won an unlimited lifetime supply of... what? Hopefully candy, stickers, books, and clothes!


If you were an animal, what would you be? A panda!


If you knew you were going to die in a year, what would you do with your time? I would spend as much time as I could with friends and family, and do the things I love.


You're now a gazillionaire... where do you go to spend your money? To the mall! The first thing I would do is go on a huge shopping spree with my family as a celebration! Then to a travel agency place to book lots of fun trips and vacations! And to charities to help the less fortunate. Maybe I would even start my own charity program!


Classical music: love it or hate it? Hate it.


Phobias? The dark, needles, bees, and roller coasters.


Hop on a plane and go live somewhere for a year... where is it, and why? London! Because of the double-deckers, British accents, and everything else that's awesome!


Are you an extrovert or an introvert? Even though at times I can be an extrovert, I think of myself as more of an introvert.


Would you/do you perform on stage? Based on me being more introversive, no I do not perform on stage, or like to. I don't even like speaking in front of an audience, let alone actually act or sing. Well that was fun! Thanks to Olivia for hosting this awesome blog party!

Photography

I love the sound my camera makes when I turn it on, the movement of the lens, the bright flash that signals a 'cheese!', all the different modes and selections, and most importantly the great photos it captures! Photography is one of my favourite hobbies. Anything can look beautiful when a good photographer is at the other end of the camera. Even the simple things in life!

I think the camera is one of the best inventions ever made! I love my camera. It may not have the highest zoom, or best lens, but it's able to snap memories and moments that I can keep for the rest of my life. When using my camera, I get to see things from different angles and new perspectives. The lens is like another set of eyes that you can use to see the world, and keep it!

Do you like photography? Why?
