He's still workin' on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.

There really ought to be a sign upon my heart,
"Don't judge her yet, there's an unfinished part."
But I'll be perfect just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master's loving hands.

He's still workin' on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.



In the mirror of His Word reflections that I see
Make me wonder why He never gave up on me.
He loves me as I am and helps me when I pray
Remember He's the Potter, I'm the clay.

He's still workin'on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.

How Often Do You Do IT?


I never realized how much I did IT until these last 2 weeks when I couldn’t do IT anymore. Oh how I’ve missed doing IT and oh the pleasure IT brought me! Will I ever be able to do IT again? Come on, you know you do IT too. If you’re a mom, you have to do IT. It’s a rite of passage. You know what I’m talking about….finishing the food left on your child’s plate when their done eating!!! What did you think I was talking about? You know they never eat it all, and sometimes you just can’t stand to throw that food away. After all, you know how hard you had to work to earn the money to buy that food, right? But have you ever stopped to think how many extra calories your adding to your daily intake when you do IT? Stop and think about it for a minute...Your child brings you their cereal bowl after breakfast with only 2/3 of it eaten, so you eat it and drink the milk -100 calories. You decide to treat your 3 boys to lunch at McDonald’s and after you finish your double cheeseburger, small fries and coke off the $ menu, you finish 2 chicken nuggets from the oldest one, 1/4 of a hamburger from the middle child and 20 fries that your littlest didn’t eat. You’ve just eaten 2 meals from one of the most unhealthiest fast food places there is to eat! And then it’s dinnertime. That roast, carrots and potatoes just didn’t go over so well with your kids, so you finish just a little bit off of each plate. Afterwards your stuffed, but oh well! At least you didn’t waste any food, right? Now are you getting the picture?
So, how does one person get to be 10...20.....90 lbs. overweight? Just one extra bite at a time, that’s how! Think about it!
