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.

Sneakin Out


You should see me right now. I'm walking around the house in this cute little t shirt type nightgown with my brand new Nike Shox Zipsister sneakers on. So sexy, I know. Don't you wish you could be a fly on the wall in my house right now? I'm super excited to have these new sneakers. For the past 8 years, the only sneakers that I have owned are the cheap $10 no name's you can find at Wal Mart. It's not that I couldn't ever afford a nice pair of sneakers, but to me, spending $50 - $60 or even more on a pair of sneakers was a waste of money. I would much rather have had a couple new outfits (bought on clearance of course) or some scrapbook supplies or a dinner out with my husband. It just wasn't my priority to get a nice pair of sneakers since quite frankly, I didn't wear them much. I haven't been much of an active person in the way of working out before. But all of that has changed now.
I've been exercising on a regular basis for several months now. And I've been doing so in my old raggedy pair of Wal Mart sneakers. I haven't minded. I have never complained. But my husband, being the shoe loving man that he is was bothered by my choice of shoes to exercise in. He made me promise that I would get a really good pair of name brand sneakers .
I don't think he trusted that I would actually do it, so he took me himself this past weekend to get a pair. We went to the Nike outlet. I think the only time I've ever been in that store was to buy him something several years ago for Christmas. It's just not my kinda store. I really wasn't too excited about how much I would have to pay for a pair of shoes there. But he promised me that I would be able to find a reasonably priced pair on sale. He was right. Yes you heard me. MY HUSBAND WAS RIGHT! Oh my, he's never gonna let me live that down! He was right and I was wrong. I'm not sure I've ever uttered those words in our 10 years of marriage, but there's a first (and last) time for everything, right? I found a super cute, luxuriously comfortable pair for $39.99. And I'm wearing them around the house right now to break them in before I go exercise tomorrow.

.....this is my most recent pair of sneakers with a crack in the bottom......
I actually like the new ones so much I'm thinking about buying a pink pair too. Look out, honey! You may have just created a sneaker snob! No more cheapo's for me! I'm lookin' mighty fine in my Nike's tonight!

Don't they make your feet feel wonderful, I can't believe you never had a good pair of sneaker. Nike's all the way for me. I bought my first pair with my babysitting money when I was in 9th grade. they were bark blue with a light blue nike mark.

I am totally coveting a pair of those skecher shoes with the rounded bottoms.....supposedly they are awesome for walking.

I personally go for the New Balance. I've had two surgeries on my left knee and currently need one on my right (when would I have time for that?) and I highly recommend the New Balance for anyone with knee problems. My orthopedic surgeon recommended them to me after my first surgery. I also love my EasyTone Reebok's!

p.s. Look at those Sexy Legs!!
