Looking For Love

So many of us are looking for love. Although many of us have found love, true love is not the definition of what we believe it to be. I feel happy and in love with my husband all the time, but anyone who has ever been married or been in love with someone knows that it has it’s ups and downs. Why? Because we change and we change how we feel, what we believe, how we act, etc. So, why do so many of us still have that longing for something more? When we seek God’s love in our lives, why do we still, at times, feel like we are missing something? Is it because we are ever changing and once we feel we’ve had our fill, we stop seeking? Or is it that we start listening to others, like in our own relationships, and let other’s opinions ruin our relationship with God? I don’t have all of the answers, but I know I have often felt the pain and heartache that I shouldn’t have to. If I just focused on my relationship with God instead of letting others determine the way my relationship should go, things would go much smoother. This is exactly what I have decided to do and share with you! So if you’re still looking for love, listen to this song…I love it.

You’re Not Fat, You’re Beautiful!

I was never someone who struggled with my weight, until I had kids. Am I large? No. I have been told by many that I “look good” for someone who has had four kids. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t struggle everyday with my weight. Why is that though? So many of us women are okay with how we look, until we turn on the TV, stand in line looking at all of the physically fit models on the magazines, and younger, more fit women we see everyday, or the way people treat those who may be more fit than us.

I was one of those “size zero” girls until I was 20 years old and was always told that I needed to eat. Problem was I ate all of the time, any and every thing, and never gained any weight. Now that I have four children, I have struggled to get rid of the “baby fat” that has accumulated in my stomach. There are far many other women who have eating disorders and other more serious issues that may require some professional help, but I do have the power to change my circumstances and so do you! It begins with you admitting your issues and telling someone you need help, but you have to really want it!

I am not here to say that you have to be a size zero, but we can be healthy! All of us come in different shapes, sizes, etc. So, just for those of you who don’t feel beautiful, here’s a little something that might just lift your spirits and get you a little more motivated than you have been! Even if the world calls us fat or doesn’t like the way we look, remember, we are God’s beautiful creation… “This planet is His canvas, and you His Mona Lisa”

PRo – Beautiful

[Chorus – PK]
Something like my Maker, I say you the best
I know you can’t see it all by yourself
But you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
‘Cause God ain’t made you like anybody else
Don’t let nobody tell you that you anything less
‘Cause you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, yeah

[Verse 1 – PRo]
She check out her reflection in the mirror
But some reason, she don’t see that beauty is in the picture
Thinking her image flawed ‘cause he ain’t made her like these models
Or her figure’s a mistake, he only making Coke bottles
Naw, Coke bottles are plastic
Mannequins are plastic but you are fantastic
She don’t believe it so it’s driving her insane
This diet don’t seem to work, she eating to ease the pain
The world tell her that somehow she doesn’t matter
Besides, the perfect girls live happily ever after.
No idea she been crafted by the Master
Uniquely in his image baby, that is no disaster

[Chorus – PK]
Something like my Maker, I say you the best
I know you can’t see it all by yourself
But you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
‘Cause God ain’t made you like anybody else
Don’t let nobody tell you that you anything less
‘Cause you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, yeah

[Verse 2 – PRo]
She begging for a hero, but villains is all she see though
Thinks she’s less than other people, she is a size zero
Her ribs touching, not ‘cause of a lack of food
But after every meal, she heads to the bathroom
Stick her finger down her throat, thinking that will give her hope
If her weight will never grow, maybe they will love her more
On a journey to acceptance ‘cause she ain’t been there before
She ain’t perfect, and commercials do their best to let her know
But if she only knew who she was in God’s view
Made his children with a purpose, girl and that includes you
Let this statement give you comfort boo, ‘cause that includes truth
God is in love with you, you ain’t gotta look far for proof

[Chorus – PK]
Something like my Maker, I say you the best
I know you can’t see it all by yourself
But you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
‘Cause God ain’t made you like anybody else
Don’t let nobody tell you that you anything less
‘Cause you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, yeah

[Verse 3 – PRo]
I wrote this for you, this is your song
You his baby doll, I know I ain’t wrong
Beauty’s from the Creator, and it ain’t measured in weight
You are great just how you are, I don’t care what that TV say
Your DNA is complete, his artistry’s in your genes
That don’t make him less creative ‘cause you don’t fit in them jeans
You ain’t got a clue the way he see you
This planet is his canvas, and you his Mona Lisa …

[Chorus – PK]
Something like my Maker, I say you the best
I know you can’t see it all by yourself
But you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
‘Cause God ain’t made you like anybody else
Don’t let nobody tell you that you anything less
‘Cause you are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, yeah
