    I was just reading Lisa's post on "things I thank Jesus for" and I was struck with a thought. Not because of what she wrote, but because the posts on that thread get longer and longer...and that's good!
    I am sure you have all known at least one person who just brags and brags and brags about himself, or his family, or anything that would make him look good. I must confess that I hide from people like that and am prone to stretch the truth just a little, lol..."gee, could you excuse me I think my house is on fire...zoooom" or "WHAT? I HAVE AN INFECTION IN BOTH EARS AND EYES AND I CAN'T HEAR YOU OR READ YOUR LIPS!" Well, you have the picture.
    My point in all this is, that it is so nice to brag on Jesus, and I think He likes it, because the more we brag, the more He gives us to brag about!
    Of course we all know it's not about us, or what we have done, but I enjoy saying Jesus did this, or Jesus did that. I thought I'd post this song that makes my point, they are talking about the Love of God.

    I Wanna Testify

    Friends, inquisitive friends
    Are asking what's come over me
    A change, there's been a change
    And it's oh so plain to see
    Now it was just a little while ago
    My life was incomplete
    I was down so low
    I had to look up at my feet

    I just want to testify what your love has done for me
    Oh, I just want to testify what your love had done for me
    Ooooh luscious, sure been delicious to me
    Ooooh luscious, sure been delicious to me
    Ooooh luscious, sure been delicious to me
    Ooooh luscious, sure been delicious to me
    Once I was a hollow man
    In which a lonely heart did dwell
    Then love came sneakin' in upon me
    Bringin' light to an empty shell

    Love just walked in on me
    And it's taken me by surprise
    There's happiness around me
    You can see it in my eyes
    Now I've heard so many time before
    That your love can be so bad
    I just want to tell you people
    It's the best love I ever had
    I just want to testify what your love has done for me
    Oh, I just want to testify what your love has done for me



    Ain't it just the plain truth
