Just as I am

There's no one better to be me than me.

I like the guys I work with.

I made cookie dough tonight. Not sure if I'll get to the actual cookie baking part though cause I'm tired.

I've managed to lose another like 8 lbs. I'm officially skin and bones.

Gary came over and put in a motion light and helped me finally hang my light fixture that's been down for like 2 mo.

I was reminded of a hymn tonight that is precious.

If I am remembering correct Billy Graham always ended with this song. Which if you read the words, makes sense.

Speaking of BG...I wish my friend kristen wasn't in china...not cause I don't want her to be in china but I really don't like when she's not a phone call away. I will get to see her though at the airport in a week so I guess that's one good thing about her and her world travels. I think she might buy me a chinese purse too ;) hint hint...do they let you read my blogs in China???

Just as I am

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thy love unknown
Hath broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, of that free love
The breadth, length, depth, and height to prove,
Here for a season, then above,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Oh to be accepted 100% for who you are where you are no matter what. Thank you Jesus.

You know what's funny? Church bells played that here this weekend, and I've NEVER heard that on church bells before. When I pointed it out to someone, they didn't even know the hymn. So I sang a bar or two...

I always loved that hymn! What a great thing to read on a Wednesday morning!

I've never heard of that hymn. Very nice. Sort of reminds of buddhism.
