Mirror, Mirror of My Heart!



I found this over at One Bright Corner , a blog that I would love to follow, but the thing won't let me, so I will have to do it another time! But I thought that this was very good, and true!


Mirror, Mirror of My Heart

I look into the mirror,
And I don’t like who I see.
An awkward, blemished person
Who cannot really be me.

I claw my skin and look in;
My filthy heart is rotting,
Is heinous like none else,
Is sin-clogged, hardly pumping.

I turn away, disgusted,
To beautiful Jesus' gaze.
His eyes show no repulsion
As His pierced hands touch my face.

He strips all my ugliness;
He swathes me with His beauty.
He carves out my foul, sick heart;
A newborn one He gives me. 

I smile into the mirror,
And I see Jesus, clearer. 
I go with Him; the old me
Is left beneath the mirror. 


I know that in my personal life, I will do something wrong, and after I do it, I will sit there and hate who I am. I look at myself and think "you are horrible. What are you?"  Without Christ we our pitiful! We our so ugly. But through his grace he makes you beautiful :D . Put your whole life into his hands, nothing could be more fulfilling, and nothing could give you more pleasure :D . But you have to surrender to him daily. Give yourself to him daily. Start the day out by saying, " God, I am yours, everything I have is yours, every part of me is yours, do what you will with me." And I'm 100% sure that you will be so happy :D .

I hope this encourages you to continue in the faith, be as strong as rocks :D . 

Be like the moon, reflect the SON! 

In Christ,
Katie

Movie review! The Conspirator



The plot called for the assassination of the United States president, vice president and secretary of state—a massive blow that the conspirators hoped would bring the country to its knees. It didn't work. But it cost us perhaps our greatest statesman, Abraham Lincoln. 


And the entire plot was allegedly hatched in Mary Surratt's parlor.
 The Conspirator is based on Surratt's trial—one held before a military tribunal, not a jury of her peers.
 "I am innocent," she tells the tribunal.
 But is she?
 On the surface, it would seem unlikely. She owns the boarding house in which the conspirators met. Her son, John, was ringleader John Wilkes Booth's right-hand man. She's a southerner, sympathetic to the Confederate cause. She simply doesn't pass the smell test. 
She seems guilty, guilty as sin.But is she?
Does it matter?
 The country is in shock, in mourning. And in its grief, it calls out for justice, for vengeance, for blood. America has decided that she is guilty. It needs her to be guilty. Best make it official and move on. But is she?Someone needs to defend her whether she's guilty or not. It's the American way, after all … the right to a fair, impartial trial. So Maryland senator Reverdy Johnson takes her case—much to the shock of his new adjunct, war hero Frederick Aiken. "The military trial of civilians is an atrocity," huffs Johnson. "No, what they did is an atrocity," Freddy says, speaking of the president's murder.Imagine Freddy's surprise, then, when Johnson elects to hand the case off to him: He must defend a woman whom he believes—whom he needs to believe—is guilty. 
But is she?
The question eats at Freddy's conscience. Johnson tells Freddy that if he can prove to himself that she's guilty, he'll let the war hero stand down and pass the defense to someone else. But there must be no doubt. And doubt, a reasonable doubt, proves to be a difficult thing for Freddy to squelch. As he talks with her and her daughter, as he watches the underhanded mechanisms of the court chip away at the woman's case, Freddy becomes an impassioned protector—risking his own social and professional standing to defend a woman most consider a traitor.



   James MacAvoy  
as Freddy/Frederick Aiken 
 I really liked him in this movie. He was honest and true. He was a good guy. I really liked him.





 Alexis Bledel
as Sarah Weston
I was disappointed in her. At first I was like, oh she sweet and a good girl. But then she just kinda leaves 
Frederick, because of what was happening. She was disappointing. :D



Robin Wright 
as Mary Surratt.
she played her part very well. It's hard to say what I think of her, so we will leave it at that. :D



Evan Rachel Wood 
as Anna Surratt.
 I kinda liked her. But it's also hard to say what I think about her too.




There are many more Characters, but it would take a long time to do all of them :D .

I think that Mary Surratt, maybe did not help, but she did know that something was going to happen. I don't think she should've been hung , but she should have had jail time.


I really liked this movie. I would strongly suggest watching it.

Have you seen this movie? If you have what did you think?


In Christ,
Katie

Lift Me Up - The Afters

You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up

Waiting for the sunrise
Waiting for the day
Waiting for a sign That I’m where you want me to be
You know my heart is heavy And the hurt is deep
But when I feel like giving up You’re reminding me
That we all fall down sometimes
But when I hit the ground

You lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I’m letting go
You lift me up when I can’t seeYour heart is all that I need
Your love carries me so I’m letting go

You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me upI know

I’m not perfect
I know I make mistakes
I know that I have let you down But you love me the same
And when I’m surrounded When I lose my way
When I’m crying out and falling down You are here to

Lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I’m letting go
You lift me up when I can’t seeYour heart is all that I need
Your love carries me so I’m letting go

I can see the dawn is breakingI am feeling overtaken with your love
With your love
I don’t know what I can offer
In this moment I surrender to your love
To your love

You lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I’m letting go

You lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I’m letting go

You lift me up when I can’t see
Your heart is all that I need
Your love carries me so I’m letting go

I can see the dawn is breaking
I am feeling overtaken with your love

You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up
