Thank You Lord by Teresa S. Mathews






Thank You Lord

I got of bed this morning, feeling pretty good
I put my feet upon the floor, on my legs I stood.

I walked into the bathroom and in the mirror looked
I took a second glance and said Wow, you look good.

I had to take a moment and really think this through.
How could this be possible? I'm way past twenty two.

Then it hit me, I know the reason why!
I have a great big secret; I've been given eternal life.

When the load of sin I carried was finally washed away
Jesus love came in and the ugly was gone to stay.

What a happy moment, my face began to shine
All the cares and worries of life I suddenly left behind.

Thank you Lord I love you so, you have been so great,
And now when people look at me I won't ever hesitate

To tell what a wonderful Lord you are and all that you can do
And maybe they'll come to know you Lord and get a face lift too!

Thank You Lord

  2. That girl in the mirror is PRICELESS!! T, your brother, STEVE, sent me another sermon on that- I'll have to send you the message. :) Sometimes the Lord has to refresh our memories, especially to people with short ones like moi!

    What a beautiful poem, and a lady that has gotten even more lovely as the years have gone by, inside and out!

  10. CARRIE when you told me I should put up a picture of a mirror, I kept thinking "I know I have one somewhere". LOL! I too am thankful for my chauffeur hubby, he jokes and tells everyone that I never drive him around. Well I did on Wednesday, he was at work and fell off a ladder and hit his head and arm. PTL the only problem was he sprang his wrist.

    CARRIE I also want to tell you that you are PRICELESS to me. God is so good to bring such precious ladies into my life. :)

  13. I loved this poem and the photo before it. How uplifting the poem was and how beautiful the photo. Isn't it just like God to send people like me to this blogsite that really need to hear his words spoken through Teresa.

    Thanks for the blessing!

  16. Glad Carlton is all right TERESA--that must have been scary. No fun being a chauffeur under those conditions. Thanks for the prayers--we are safely home. And have laundry going, lol! And thank you for you kind words--God has really blessed me with you and Diana and Marian and our readers! What an amazing opportunity he has given us. Big hugs!

  18. YAY! Welcome home, CARRIE! The worst part about coming back home from a trip-laundry. ugg But so glad you had a safe trip, and am eager to hear all about it!

    Yes, He has certainly blessed me with all of you cohorts (love that word, MARIAN!), and all of our wonderful, PRICELESS readers!
