Fun Friday - Music

For your listening pleasure, Mandisa's The Definition of Me.

Everybody's got an opinion
Of what they want me to be
Everybody's got a condition
That I may never meet

So tired of looking in the mirror
‘Cause it always says the same thing
I want to be about something different
Something more than the mirror can see

Like joy, peace
Alive in me
When it comes to my identity

I want the love
I want the light
I want the beauty
On the inside
I want the one that you can't see
To be the definition of me

More than the face
More than the girl
More than the voice
More than the world
I want the truth that I believe
To be the definition of me

Pretty is cool for a minute
But it will always fade away
Trends are hot for a second
But they'll be gone the very next day

So before you get lost in the moment
Let’s get one thing clear
Only love will last forever
That's the reason that we're here

It's up to you ‘cause everybody's looking
Who do you want them to see?

I want Your love to be
The very heart of me
Jesus, I want You to be
Living inside of me

Chatty Kelly

When my daughter and I get in the car to go somewhere, Sydney pushes the button and on comes Mandisa. I have both CDs.

It delights a mother's heart knowing that her daughter is getting a message of truth, in a world that can be so deceiving.

love and hugs~Tammy
