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.

Bye Bye Bye Bye My Baby (FAT) Bye Bye





I’m not a country girl. And I’m really not a country music girl. I much prefer urban gospel as my style of music to jam to. But the other day when I weighed myself, I remembered a song from way way waaaay back in my B.C. years. That’s Before Christ for those of you who aren’t well versed in “christianese lingo”. I’ve lost 19 lbs. That puts me at the exact weight that I was before I became pregnant with Ezra almost 3 ½ years ago and then with Hezekiah almost immediately after. Now, I certainly was overweight before becoming pregnant, but those two pregnancies took their toll on my body. No matter what I tried, I just couldn’t shed those extra pounds that I put on. The “baby fat’. Until now. And this brings me to the song I was talking about. This being the last day of 2009, I’m finding myself getting all nostalgic and if I could think of an anthem to end my year with, it would be this…..Bye Bye Bye Bye My Baby (Fat) Bye Bye! The song is by Jo Dee Messina and I looked it up on Youtube and found the lyrics. While she was referring to a lover in this song, it spoke to me in reference to the weight I’m leaving behind this year and hopefully so much more in 2010. So, here are some of the words to the song. I’m changing some of them to fit my current situation……

…Well it's been long enough
Time is up…

Bye bye FAT, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
I ain't never lookin' back. And that's a fact.
I've tried all I can imagine ....
Bye bye, bye bye my baby FAT, bye bye

Don't think all those tears are gonna hold me here like they've done before
You'll find what's left of us in a cloud of dust on highway 4

I've seen the light...

Bye bye FAT, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
'Cause I ain't never lookin' back, and that's a fact.
I've tried all I can imagine ....
Bye bye, bye bye my baby FAT, bye bye


Bye bye, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
'Cause I ain't never lookin' back.
You can count on that.
Bye bye, bye bye my baby FAT, bye bye


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
