Do They See Jesus In Me?

I heard this song today. I may have heard it before, but if so I'd forgotten. I love the words and these are questions I ask of Him often. I so want others to see Him in me. I want to exude His presence. Hope you enjoy the music and the lyrics and I pray that they will inspire you as they have me.

(You will need to pause the music player at the bottom of the screen to hear this song.)

Is the face that I see in the mirror
the one I want others to see
Do I show in the way that I walk in my life
The love that You've given to me
My heart's desire is to be like You In all that I do, all I am
Do they see Jesus In Me
Do they recognize Your face
Do I communicate Your love, and Your grace
Do I reflect who You are In the way I choose to be
Do they see Jesus In Me
It's amazing that you'd ever use me
But use me the way You will
Help me to hold out a heart of compassionate grace
A heart that You're spirit fills
May I show forgiveness and mercy
The same way You've shown it to me
Now I want to show all the world who You are
The reason I live and breathe
So You'll be the One that they see When they see me

New links

I was up in the wee hours of the morning today. From about 2:45 a.m. until 7:00 a.m. to be exact. No idea what was going on other than the fact that I have been suffering greatly with my bi-annual sinus infection. So last night as I was up alone I did some blog reading and found some new blogs. Check out my sidebar and visit some of the ones that are new to you. Most of the new ones are thought provoking, you will find posts about frugality, mothering, homemaking, Godly living, etc. Hope you find something that you like.

Weigh In #3

Last week I was in a pretty foul mood. It really only lasted that one evening, but I was grumpy nonetheless. Tonight, however, I am much, much happier. This week I lost 3 lbs. My total loss at this point is 8.2 lbs. in 3 weeks. That is just above what I would hope for in a typical month. You always lose a little more in the very beginning, so 8.2 lbs. in three weeks is a good thing. It is going really well. I am not hungry very often and when I am I am completely satisfied with things that are healthy. As a matter of fact I am totally in love with Dark Sweet Cherries right now and will be so sad to see them go out of season. I'm gonna have to find some sort of fruit that I enjoy as much as those. I eat them at least once if not twice every day.

I hope to blog a little more this next week. Until then ya'll have a great weekend!

Weigh In # 2

Discouraged, Frustrated and Angry.

That just about sums up the way I'm feeling today. I have done extremely well with my eating this past week, I mean EXTREMELY well, but this week not only did I not lose any weight. I gained weight. Which of course is where being discouraged and frustrated comes in.

The anger may not be warranted, but that's just how I feel. It seems that many thinner people view those of us that are overweight as gluttons. Like they think we sit around and watch TV and eat junk food all day. I honestly quit binge eating years ago. I also stopped buying junk food that I really like a long time ago. I may not have been as careful as I should have been, but I have definitely not been sitting around bingeing on junk. It's just so stinking irritating. We are all guilty of being judgemental of each other and we all just need to stop. Ok. I should probably just quit right now. I'm normally very upbeat and positive, but I am just very upset right now. I am however, not going to quit. Your prayers would be very appreciated right now.
