Virtue...

Shared by Rebecca U at 8:05 AM 0 comments Links to this post
The young women and the YW presidency at church are learning a new song for Young Women in Excellence evening that is coming up. It's a song by Jenny Phillips called 'Virtue' and has some lovely lyrics that I wanted to share...

Because I love the Father
I want the minds of men to be lifted
when they look at me
Because I am His daughter
I want my devotion to Him
to be what they see
I don't need the attention of immodesty
I am confident in my divinity

I didn't come to earth to compromise
I came here to hold up my light
I won't flirt with the darkness that I came here to fight
You'll find me on the Father's side
No matter what the world may do
I'm a daughter of God
And I'm holding onto Virtue

I want to lead a life that is full of so much good
it attracts the light to me
So I'm trusting in my Father
to magnify the beauty He has placed in me
I am confident in my divinity

I didn't come to earth to compromise
I came here to hold up my light
I won't flirt with the darkness that I came here to fight
You'll fine me on the Father's side
No matter what the world may do
I'm a daughter of God
And I'm holding onto Virtue

(FYI- I have the sheet music, let me know if you want to be emailed a copy)

Random Thoughts...

So I found this on someone else's blog, who found it on someone else's blog, so not too sure where it originated. But I found it pretty funny - I was just sat laughing to my self reading it. Enjoy peeps!

Random Thoughts from People Our Age

  • I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Chavvy parts" routing option.
  • Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
  • Have you ever been walking down the street and realised that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning around and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
  • I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
  • Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know" feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?
  • Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem.
  • There is a great need for sarcasm font.
  • Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what was going on when I first saw it.
  • I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone is laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.
  • I would rather try to carry 10 plastic carrier bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my shopping in.
  • Was learning cursive really necessary?
  • Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".
  • How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
  • I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent an idiot from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!
  • What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?
  • While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.
  • I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
  • Whenever I'm Facebook-stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!
  • Why is it that during an icebreaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....
  • Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.
  • There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
  • I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
  • I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'
  • I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dang it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
  • I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in myiTunes.
  • Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
  • Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey- but I'd bet everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...
  • The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There's nothing like being made to feel like a fatty before dinner.
