I Like Me
may not be trim and slim
But I like me just the same
And this is not a game
But a serious look at what I see
A plus size that I have come to be.
As the years came and went
I seem to find the more time I spent
Taking it easy around the house
I added a pound or two
Until now that I am old I don't know what to do.
My back aches when I try to walk
And my feet seem to say, "Ouch."
Every time I stand a lot
Because of all the weight I've got.
I look in the mirror and am dismayed
For God said in His image I am made
And I feel bad at what I see displayed
Thinking, "Would God be pleased
At what He sees?"
Was it gluttony that took me here
Or was it a health problem, I fear?
I really don't know the cause
Of all the weight I have found
And carry around.
Lord, help me, I pray
That I will not always be this way
But will find the will
Not to sit and eat my fill
But select food to eat
That will take off the pounds
That make me heavy on my feet.
It is not vanity that I feel
But a healthy body I seek.
So, please help me choose a diet that is real
And lose some weight this week!!!
If it be not your will
I will still be proud of me
If that is the way I am to be
And not put myself down
For all the weight I carry around.

1 Cor. 6:19
What? Know ye not that your body is the temple
Of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have
God, and ye are not your own?
