Locating a Qualified Electrician

Owning a home means that you will have occasional problems that you will need to deal with. It is only a matter of time until you have a serious issue with the electrical system in your home. Obviously, this is not something that you should attempt to fix on your own. It is much too dangerous. You will need to contact a professional electrician to sort out the problem. A short glance at your local phone book will show many electricians for you to choose from. Obviously, not all of these people will do the same quality of work for you. How do you sift through all these choices? Here are some ways that you can go about finding a terrific Ponte Vedra electrician.

1. Hire a company that has been operating in your local area for many years.

The first thing you should do is limit your search to electricians that have established a great reputation within your community. Talk to people in your neighborhood and find out the electricians they have used in the past. Ideally, you should only hire an electrician who has been in your area for no less than four years. It says a lot about a company if they can stay in business for that long. It basically means that they have continually done great work for people. Therefore, they have received a ton of repeat business.

2. How quickly can the electrician come to your home and start working?

Obviously, you do not want to wait a long time for an appointment with an electrician. You want the electrical problem in your home to be fixed as soon as possible. Therefore, you should only hire an electrician who can come to your home within 48 hours of when you call to make the appointment. A company that makes you wait longer than 48 hours is not serious about getting your business. 

3. Does the electrician have a current license and insurance coverage?

Both of these things are absolutely essential for an electrician to have. The license is important because it shows that the electrician has successfully completed his training and passed all of the exams mandated by the state. Insurance is important because this will pay for any damage that the electrician might accidentally do to your home or possessions while he is working. Ask to see his proof of insurance and license.

Decorate Your Own First Communion Candle

An essential in your child's first communion is the communion candle. It symbolizes Christ, who lights our way and guides us in our journey as Christians. 

For my daughter's first communion candle, we decided to decorate it ourselves. We found a colorful design on the internet which suited our daughter's personality and used it as our reference. 

In decorating the communion candle, it is important to keep the following in mind:

1. Leave at least 13-15 cm space on the top so that the decoration will not immediately melt away while the candle burns. Also allow a 15 cm distance from the bottom so that your child will be able to hold the candle easily without covering the decoration while handling the candle.

2. Signs of the eucharist and Christ such as the chalice, the host, grape vine, fish, alpha and omega, sun, cross, etc. are just some of the symbols relevant to first communion. Explain to your child what each symbol means and allow them to choose the symbols that they want on their candle.

3. Materials: you will need candle (we used 35mm x 500 mm, with 10% beeswax), wax sheets in various colours, crafter's scalpel, cutting mat, templates for the symbols, wax paper.

3. Don't forget to also place your child's name and the date of the first communion so you will always be reminded when your child first received the body and blood of Christ.

4. Have fun decorating. This is also another chance to spend quality time with your child and sharing with them your faith.

Self-decorated candles are also great gifts for your loved ones. You can easily customize the design according to the occasion.

Happy crafting!
