I have an obsession

With Tangled.
It is wicked amazing (sorry, I couldn't think of any other words, so I had to slip into my Mainer speech :P). It is one of my favorite movies ever. The songs are amazing. The characters are cute, funny, entertaining, and heart-warming. If you have not seen this movie, you have no idea what you are missing!!!

Today, I hope you will bear with me while I share with you some lovely Tangled-ness.

The first two photos are a Tangled coloring page that a friend made for me and the next two are one that I colored for her. :)

These two cakes would be amazing to have!

If any of you didn't know, Picnik is shutting down in April. This is very sad, and the only perk is that premium is free for everyone to use until they shut down. So, the other day I was playing around with some touch-up effects and turned this photo:

Into this photo:

See how much you can do with a simple editing program? True, professionals do a much better job than I did, but the effect is still the same. Many girls compare themselves to models who have been airbrushed, digitally shrunk, and professionally photographed. 

This video is an example of how this is done:

So don't try and look "perfect"; no can look like that, not even the models themselves. Who said that was perfect, anyway? Trust in God, take care of yourself, and let your inner beauty shine through.

p.s. 41 followers? ya'll are great. :)

Isaiah 55:8-12

Isaiah 55:8-12

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD.
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

"For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,

And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth,
It shall not return to Me void,

But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

"For you shall go out with joy,
And be led forth with peace;

The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,

And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands."

Isaiah 43:2
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.

When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,

Nor shall the flame scorch you."

Have a blessed Sunday!

Hey everyone!

Hey everyone!

So, I will be gone this weekend. I am being a junior counselor at a winter weekend retreat. We are leaving today and coming home Sunday afternoon. Plus our new semester starts on Monday and I am thinking that I will have a lot more homework, so I am sorry, but I will probably not be posting a whole lot. I will try and keep my 365 blog updated and I will try to give you all updates whenever I can.
Thanks for understanding!

Hot chocolate and is good. I finished Persuasion yesterday, and Anne Elliot is my favorite Jane Austen heroine and Captain Wentworth is pretty close to Mr. Knightley as my favorite Austen hero. :)
Have you ever read Persuasion?

Have a good weekend!
