Then Sings My Soul : My Father's Eyes
She has her Father's eyes,
her Father's eyes
Eyes that find the good in things,
when good is not around.
Eyes that find the source of help,
when help just can't be found.
Eyes full of compassion,
seeing every pain.
Knowin' what you're going through,
and feeling it the same.
Just like my Father's eyes,
my Father's eyes,
my Father's eyes
Just like my Father's eyes.
When I first plunged into blogging, I didn't have a clue that "blog name" matters a lot. When blogger asked what I'd like to name my blog, I thought - well, this is going to be my online journal where I will write my thoughts when I am down looking up or high on Spirit looking down finding someone I can help or just looking within to reflect. I thought of the bird's eyeview, then the worm's eyeview so I decided "Liza's Eyeview" would be appropriate.
Later on, when I started visiting other blogs, I felt kinda ashamed of my blog name because it sounded corny. Why didn't I choose a witty blog name like "Rocks In My Dryer" or a fun on like "I Should Be Folding My Laundry"? Liza's Eyeview - yikes, its not hip at all.
But then I remembered one of my favorite songs when I first became a Christian called "My Fathers Eyes". That appeased me. I adopted it to be my blog theme song. I thought, this blog can be used by God, and this can also be my ministry - I think that's ok. Little did I know that God will honor that little prayer of mine to use this blog and my blogging for His glory. So whenever I sing My Father's Eyeview I get teary eyed knowing that this Liza's Eyeview means I have a bit of My Father's Eyes. Most of you already know the lyrics to the song but I thought I'd put down the chorus together with the video.
