      ----------------------------------------

      When Jesus looks upon my life,
      What picture does He see.
      Does He see His own reflection,
      Or does He just see me.

      Does He see His likeness,
      The product of His hand.
      Or just another Christian,
      Who never took a stand.

      Does He see a child of God,
      A child that He set free.
      Living life to honor Him,
      Or does He just see me.

      What about the other folks,
      I meet along the way.
      Do I show them Jesus,
      To brighten up their day.

      When someone looks into my eyes,
      Can they truly see.
      That calm and gentle peace of God,
      That dwells inside of me.

      When I reach out and shake a hand,
      Is He right there in my grip.
      Can they feel that strength from God,
      That steadies when I slip.

      When folks are in my presence,
      Do they know His Spirit's there.
      Can they see that He's the one,
      Who guides me everywhere.

      When other people think of me,
      What is on their mind.
      Do they think of Jesus Christ,
      So gentle and so kind.

      I try to be like Jesus,
      Every single day.
      Spreading love and kindness,
      All along my way.

      I'm afraid that I have failed,
      I could not pass the test.
      Deep inside my heart I know,
      I haven't done my best.

      I have had to fight my flesh,
      Since the day that I was born.
      It's always causing trouble,
      And being such a thorn.

      That's why His Spirit dwells in me,
      He's helping me to learn.
      In every situation,
      Where I need to turn.

      He knew I'd never pass the test,
      That's why He took my place.
      He gave His life to save my soul,
      He suffered my disgrace.

      Now I try to be like Him,
      I must present Him well.
      So other folks will want His gift,
      And turn their backs on hell.

      Other folks should see the joy,
      That Christ has given me.
      They should want to have it too,
      Especially since it's free.

      They should begin to ask me,
      What is it they must do.
      Just how it is they go about,
      Getting Jesus too.

      Then I get to tell them,
      This wondrous gift is free.
      It only takes a humble heart,
      A prayer on bended knee.

      Someday when I'm face to face,
      With the Lord who set me free.
      Will He see His own reflection,
      Or will He just see me.

        Dear honorable members

        Greetings in HIS name

        To keep the forum debate's authenticity, we the moderators of this forum, have decided to implement a new guideline.

        As per the new guideline from 26th of October 2004, we will not publish any messages without proper signature. Your signature should contain full name, family name, home parish, present parish attending along with proper references like that of the parish priest's; name, e mail address and telephone number, where we can verify the genuineness of the e mails.

        After the verification of your identity, we will provide a member ID Number which can be used as your signature for future postings and by member ID numbers we can verify your mails. However, If you want your name to be withheld from the messages published, we will comply to your request and then only the ID number will be published.

        These personal contact details will be stored in our database and will not be published in the forum.

        However, if you are hesitant to reveal the name and identity, you can still be a member of the forum and get the daily digests in your e-mail id supplied, if you wish so.

        This new guideline is applicable to all members, regardless of their Christian denomination.

        We hope our members will appreciate it and cooperate with us.

        Be with us and be part of us.

        In Our Lords Love
