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.

Just Call Me Julie



I'm taking a little detour from my usual topics tonight....

You can just call me Julie for now. Has anyone seen the movie "Julie and Julia?" Well, I feel like Julie in that one scene when she gets super duper excited because she has 1 comment on her blog, then disappointment soon follows when she realizes it's from her mother! Yeah, that's me. I know, I'm a dork. What is it with us bloggers and our obsession with getting comments? Is it our need to feel validated? Or our need to want someone to like us? What do you think? I dunno. But I find myself checking my blog like 5....or 50 times a day to see if anyone left me a comment. That's weird, isn't it? Tell me I'm not the only one! Please tell me you do this too. Hey! Is anybody listening? ANYONE? ANYONE AT ALL? Yeah, probably not. That's what I thought! Well, at least I know my husband reads my blogs! That counts for something, right? Anyway, if your reading, Thanks! And......does anyone know how to bone a duck? Hee hee hee......

I can't help with boning a duck but I can certainly leave a comment!!
You are not alone with checking your blog often to see if you got any new comments. I'm guilty of that too....I think it is validation that we're not writing our posts to a non-existing audience. I remember when I first started my blog and I would get a couple of comments. I started linking to some of the memes and found that they were a great way to meet other bloggers.
Have a great weekend.

Thats why I don't leave you a comment on every post you do, you know when you go to check to see if anyone left you a comment and it's just your sister. But i'm here to let you know I'm read every single one of your post. Oh yea I check my blog a couple times a day also especially when I do a new blogpost when I link to another blog. Don't stop blogging it only take's one publisher to read your blog and they will love your writing as much as I do.

Hugs,
Melissa
