The New Me

Well, this is the new me. Due to health issues earlier this year, I had to change - yuck! I now have a new diet with new portion sizes. But, it has worked - praise the Lord! Good health now. Jill just sent me this new photo and I thought, "Well! I really don't look so bad!" Then I discovered she has new editing software and that she had touched me up - removed wrinkles (just a couple) - gave me a little blush and powder. Laughing out loud! See what happens when we are vain? In thinking about the new me - I realized I became the "new" me 37 years ago - when I realized I was lost and trusted Jesus Christ to come into my life. As I study His Word,die to self, and yield to His Spirit - I gradually become even more "new" - day by day. Double chin aside...I like the new me. Oh, I fail - every day - almost every hour. But I'm not who I used to be...and I'm not who I will be when I see Him face to face. Thank You, Jesus.
