No More, No Less

I promise, this is my last reference to the S.L.O.B of the Month award! The reality is that this isn’t even about me, it’s about you all. I received my signed copy of All That Is Within Me from the guys at MercyMe today in the mail. Since you are all the ones that made it possible, I wanted to share it with everyone. I can’t come up with any other creative way to do it, so here’s a picture of what I received. Again, I can’t thank MercyMe enough for the honor. I also can’t thank you all enough for clicking through to make it happen. This is as much yours as it is mine. Congratulations!

To all of those that have come over to visit Arms Wide Open for the first time, welcome! I thought I would let the guys from MercyMe introduce what this blog and I am all about. Every lyric of this song pretty much covers why I do what I do. Thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by and check my blog out. Hope you enjoy your visit.

No More, No Less” by MercyMe

I’m not trying to hide anything
I wear it on my sleeve
I wear it on my sleeve
I’m not trying to be something I’m not
This is all I’ve got
This is all I’ve got
I’m not trying to re-invent the wheel
Just trying to be real
Trying to be real
I’m not trying to say follow me
I’m not the one who leads

I’m not the one who leads

Let me introduce myself to you
This is who I am
No more, no less
I am just a man who understands
Because of You I’m blessed

No more, no less

I’m not trying to prove anything
It’s all about the change
It’s all about the change

I hope you stare just long enough to see
The heart that’s beating here inside of me
Beyond all the things you may think you know
I’m just a kid trying to make it home, that’s it
No more, no less
Lord, I want to go home
Nothing more, nothing less

  1. You sound like me… I promise this is my last mention of MercyMe or SLOBs!!! : )

    So cool though, isn’t it! I was so excited to (finally) get my copy (after much ‘drama’…)! (Just try not to make a fool of yourself now, should they come to your town anytime soon… like me.)

    Enjoy – the CD and the honor. : )

    (I must say… Bart has GREAT taste in SLOBs!!)

  2. Thanks Jessica! Just never want it to appear as bragging as I really have nothing to brag about. If the readers wouldn’t have clicked out, it never would have happened! It’s still a little surreal really. One of those treasure moments. We can share with another person in a few more weeks! Wonder who’ll be next? Thanks again!
