Rain rain go away come again another day

This a photo I took today in my yard after the rain. I had been feeling a really down. Then rain reminded me how God cleanses the world with water and washes away dirt. Just like he washes away our sins. 

Art In Unexpected Places

Nothing is impossible! This blind man creates vibrant paintings just by using his sense of touch

God blesses us in unexpected ways. This young man went blind but still creates beautiful pieces of art. This just shows how you can turn a curse into a blessing. I think we can all take something away from strong people like this.

Judging the Don’t Judge Challenge vs. God Given Natural Beauty

I keep seeing these videos where people put on heavy amounts of makeup to make themselves look “ugly”. These videos are otherwise known as the Judging the Don’t Judge Challenge. This challenge has baffled me. I am all about not judging people by their appearance. At the same time I feel that making yourself look extremely unattractive (it almost looks like a cartoon) is almost more mocking than anything. Instead of putting on makeup (pretty makeup) to be beautiful I think we need to focus more inward or towards our natural beauty that God gave to us. I think a better challenge would be to take off makeup and still feel an inner beauty without the cover-up. Which reminds me of one of my favorite music videos which can be seen below. We do not need to try so hard to impress people with our looks because what really matters is what is in our hearts.

Quote of the Day

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
