You Are Special (Guest Post)

I’m not athletic.

I don’t look like a model.

I have a ton of quirks.

I’m not a very sociable person.

I talk about photography way too much.

I have a hard time making new friends.

I am messy.

I’m not great at school.

I giggle way too much.

I’m not a great singer.

I have a hard time putting my thoughts on paper.

I’m a very weird person.

But all of this is ok. Just because I’m not great at sports or school or singing; it doesn’t define my self-worth. Just because I don’t look like a model, doesn’t mean I’m not pretty. Mine (and your) personality isn’t based on how we look and the things we’re good at. Instead, it’s based on how we act and how we treat other people. I guess what I’m trying to say is, our flaws do not define who we are as a human being. Just because you don’t look like your best friend or weigh more then they do, it doesn’t make you any less worthy than them.

Psalm 139:13-14 says this: “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

We look exactly how we were suppose to look. God created you and I the way he wanted to and He makes no mistakes. If God wouldn’t have wanted you to have blonde hair and freckles or maybe brown hair with brown eyes or any other color-He wouldn’t have made you like that.

“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.” -Ecclesiastes 3:11

“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seethnot as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” -1 Samuel 16:7
So don’t try to look like everyone else. Don’t try to be like everyone else. There is only one you in the world, and you are unique. No one else is exactly like you and you are beautiful. Don’t let anyone try to tell you different. ;)

About Jess Ann:

Hey y'all! My name is Jessica Ann Wingard (I go by Jess Ann online) and I come from Small Town, Oklahoma. ;) Best place ever!! <3 My absolute favorite thing to do is to take pictures. Seriously if you looked up "Craziest Obsessed Photographer" my picture would be there! Well, maybe not since I hate pictures of me. Ironic, right?! :) I have recently discovered that writing is sorta fun. I mean how cool is it that you have the power to make people feel emotions like happy or sad (or bored; maybe that's what y'all are feeling right now reading about me! ;)) with a story! Some of my other hobbies are babysitting, (I ADORE lil ones!!! Seriously my little boys I babysit are my life.) baking, hanging out with friends, (surprise! I do have friends. Hah, betcha didn't think so with how weird I am. ;P) playing violin, blogging...and whatever else I think of right after I send this email. I am a Christian and believe that Jesus died for our sins and loves each and every one of us. <3 I am also a HUGE introvert, homeschooler, (heh, that surely has nothing to do with me not liking to talk to people!) and have 2 younger brothers. Well....I should probably go as I have a whole paragraph!!! I like to talk. Can you tell? ;) Thanks for reading all of this...unless you fell asleep..if you did this is just awkward....ok..I'm going now...see ya! -jess ann

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
