This is how I spent half of my weekend…a jigsaw puzzle!!!

Note: Happy Saturday, y’all! I decided to do a Reblog since it’s National Puzzle Day! I absolutely love jigsaw puzzles, including this one that I completed about two weeks ago in under 24 hours. Enjoy! 

I think that jigsaw puzzles are so relaxing. When you’ve placed every delicate piece in the right place, it’s so satisfying to see them all as one, a single image is put on display. It’s almost like a type of meditation, all while being a great way to spend your time when you’ve got nothing else to do. 

One of my Christmas gifts for last year, from my great-grandmother, was a 300-piece jigsaw puzzle. At the time it had been a long while since I completed one (at least 2 years), but it was a great experience, and I love the painting that I saw as the final product.

Both me and my Goodmommy were honestly surprised at how big the whole thing was, especially due to the small size of the box and poster. However, none of us complained. The colors are so vibrant in real life, and it almost looks like a true landscape.

I even zoomed in to get a look at some of the beautiful details. I must admit that now, I want to get some more puzzles like this. Though I want the next one to be 350-500 pieces, instead. Keep in mind that these pictures are from the poster, not the actual puzzle. :))

I had started the puzzle at approximately 6:12 p.m. yesterday, Saturday, January 16th. I finished at 6:05 p.m. today, Sunday, January 17th. So basically I finished it in just under 24 hours (with long breaks in between.) Without the breaks, including sleeping, I think it didn’t take much longer to complete than 4 hours. Not too bad, right?

If you know some methods for how to frame a puzzle, and/or you like puzzles yourself, please comment down below some tips.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful, blessed day! 🧩

The Importance of Time With God

The Importance of Time With God

-ajoyfulchristianteen ✨

We all need that time where we sit down and spend some quality time with our Father, God. This time might be meditating on a new scripture, or even praying to him and thanking him for what he has blessed us with. Regardless, there are so many different ways to spend time with our Father.

But why is time with God so important? This is simply because, in order to truly develop a relationship with him, we need to make sure that we talk to him, pray to him, and spend time with him. Not only this, but it will help us become more familiar with who He is, and establish an overall closer relationship.

Think about it. The way that we get closer to people that we can see is by spending time with them, or bonding with them. A huge part of a Christian lifestyle should be having quiet time with the Lord.

Our time with God doesn’t have to be super long. It could be just a simple “Thank you!” or sitting quietly with Him. Even if it is just 5-10 minutes a day, the fact that you are giving Him all the Glory is what matters, the most.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post about Our time with God, and its important. Remember balance is key!

Have an amazing day everyone! ✨

Romans 12:1-2 NIV – Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

2 Timothy 1:7 NIV – For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
