Happy Day


Today was one of those days that just makes me feel happy inside. Speech and debate started and I got to see my friends and make new friends. I got home, had a smoothie and emailed one of my friends. Today was just a reminder that its the little things that brighten your day.

Fulfilled

Matthew 7:24 says, "Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock."

When we commit to following Jesus and truly desiring to do as He has commanded us, our lives are more fulfilled.

ful·filled
adjective1.
satisfied or happy because of fully developing one's abilities or character.

When Christ is the center of our lives we have purpose. We have a strong foundation.
This doesn't mean that life as a Christ follower will be easy, but it will be worth it.  It means we can be like Paul and Silas, praising God as they sat in prison. It means we can be like the man in Acts 3 who was lame from birth and was healed in the name of Jesus Christ, we can run, jump and rejoice.

I want to be fulfilled. Do you?

Revamp Your Charger

Today I revamped my iPhone charger with this cute tape I found at the store earlier.
 

You can find this kind of tape at most craft stores and stores such as Wallmart, Target, ect. 

I put the tape on the charger making it as even as possible and then trimmed the small bit of extra tape on the edge. 
I am quite pleased with the end result ( pictured below)

Sweater Season Is Almost Here!!

People are starting school and cool weather is on its way. At this realization I started thinking about getting to wear sweaters agian. Sweaters are a fun, cozy, and most importantly modest.


They are a good option for a cool, fall day. They can be casual or you can dress them up with cute, classy accessories and cute flats. To do a more casual look wear moccasins or combat style boots. 

One newer trend is animal sweaters and sweatshirts, with a vintage flair such as the one pictured below.


Have a wonderful day lovelies!

Beautiful Day

Has anyone else noticed what a beautiful day today is? No, I'm not just talking about the weather, I'm talking about what a blessing it is to be living! Each day is beautiful, sometimes a day may feel more rough that others but it is still a blessing to be alive and praising our Creator!

Thinking

I am a thinker. I think about things of little importance as well as things of monumental importance. I think about how annoying some things are, and yet I think about how beautiful other things are. I am an over-thinker, I tend to replay things I said earlier in the day over and over in my head wondering if I said the right thing. I think about simple things, like the life of a leaf and how it flourishes just to fade. I think about complicated things, like growing older and the responsibility that comes with it. Think, think, thinking the night away.

My New Blog..

Hello Sunshines!

   My name is Julia Anne, some of you may know me in real life and some of you may know me as the author of The Beginning of Wisdom blog. I had some technical difficulties with my last blog and thought I would start fresh.  Over the next week or so I may repost some of my favorite posts from my last blog and then start posting new and exciting things as well.

   I will start with telling a bit about myself, I am a Christian believes that Jesus Christ is the only way to receive eternal life (John 3:16, Romans 6:23). I have a wonderful family and amazing friends of all ages. I am a homeschooler and have a really great homeschooling community. I am a Speech & Debate kid and am in a homeschool choir. I love, love, love to play the guitar and sing. I enjoy many genres of music including Christian contemporary, classical, electronic, jazz and some bluegrass.

   I am so incredibly excited to start sharing with you and hopefully learning more about you as well.

                        Yours Truly,
                            Julia Anne
