It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices then these.
All I could think of was how ugly I felt when I would look into the mirror. I was a little cranky, and I found it difficult every time I would try to look at myself with out clothing. con Suddenly, I found it easier to avoid the mirror than to face it. I wasn't the young woman I Once was, I was now in my 50's and was finding it much harder to lose the weight I had gained after my brain surgery. I seem to be stuck in the 180 pound area and it is starting to get to me. I looked at a face that is contorted with pain at times but is does it truly mirror everything Jesus had been through, no and I am ashamed of myself for the self-pity I allow myself to indulge in. When I compared my minor discomforts with the true sufferings of Jesus, I realized I had nothing whatsoever to complain about. My discomfort is something that I can do something about. I can do it because of Jesus, all I have to do is ask and He will be there comforting me and guiding me every step of the way. Jesus was there through out my surgery and through out most of the weight that I have already lost. I need to remember to God give all the Glory for non of it is mine. For when I am weak He is strong and carries me. And it is not what I don't have that I should be worried about. I should be Thankful for the life He has given me and the weight that I have already lost. Now I need to pick me up and toss away the self pity.
Today's thought: I will think of what I have, rather than what I have not!
