You ARE Special; He created us in His image

Hi everybody! This is Jylian aka ~*Jilly Bean*~. After Hilary (MsHilariosity) told me about this blog, then asked me to be a Coauthor, I was stoked but could not think of what to post. Finally, I have thought of something good to publish as my first official post.

Today was a snow day for us students in our little ole' town. I was admiring the white blanket of snow that covered our yard when a realization hit me: this is another form of God's beauty. This led me to think of all of God's creations, including us, His children. Every snow crystal, like us, is created uniquely. You know all those pictures of a snowflake that make you think, "Wow, it's so beautiful and intricate"? Well, God created us the same way. Fashioning us in His own image, He created us uniquely, an intricate design. We are always beautiful in His eyes.

So to anyone having doubts about how special they are or that they are plain, boring, whatever it is, remember: God created us in HIS image with a purpose and plan for us all. You are NOT plain, you are NOT boring, and you ARE special. God loves us all and we are all beautiful and special to Him.

Verses: Psalm 139: 14-16 (my personal preference); Ephesians 2: 10; Genesis 1: 26- 27

Onto a different topic, I found a site with awesome Christian backgrounds, wallpapers, and screensavers:
I love switching up my backgrounds and such, so I figured others might as well. It is also a reminder to me of God's words and love. If you post scripture or even inspirational quotes around places you frequent, you have a boost to keep you going. : ) I am constantly looking up backgrounds/wallpapers, pictures, etc. that have Bible verses or are Christian based, so when I find more, I will post it!

On another note (a little irony there, since this is about music...Haha...), Hilary told me about this new song titled "Hold My Heart" by Tenth Avenue North. It's a fantastic song as are the other songs on the album. The band itself is phenomenal. Another fantastic song is "Temporary Home" by Carrie Underwood. Very heart-touching and so true.

Alright, that is it for this post, but hopefully I will update again soon. God bless!

"For I thy Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, 'Fear not; I will help thee.'" ~ Isaiah 41: 13

With love and prayers,
