Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
"Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
Nehemiah 8:10

A JOY THAT ENDURES

A joy that endures...
Matters not the circumstance.
A joy that endures...
God's love is not just chance.

A joy that endures....
Matters not what you fear.
A joy that endures....
For God is always near.

A joy that endures...
Through the brokenness of life.
A joy that endures...
Through life's greatest strife.

A joy that endures...
Comes from God, you see
A joy that endues...
He will give to you and me.

Welcome to my Garden:
Today's poem was taken from today's "Jesus Calling"

THIS DAY IS A GIFT FROM GOD

This day is a gift from God
May we use it to his glory.
This day is a gift from God
A time to tell His story.

This day is a a gift from God
To bring thanksgiving to His feet.
This day is a gift from  God
And smile at those we meet.

This day is a gift from God
Give Him our worries and fear.
This day is a gift from God
Know that He is near.

This day is a gift from God
Give Him our pain and sorrow.
This day is a gift from God
Let Him take care of tomorrow.

HOLD MY HAND AND TRUST

Hold My hand and trust
Through the lonelily night.
Hold My hand and trust
When you are filled with fright.

Hold My hand and trust
Through your every sorrow.
Hold My hand and trust
I'm already in your tomorrow.

Hold My hand and trust
When you can't see your way.
Hold My hand and trust
I'll lead you to a brighter day.

Hold My hand and trust
In your every pain.
Hold My hand and trust
Heaven will be your gain!

Welcome to my Garden:
It takes persistence for the butterfly to fly and that is the kind of
persistence God wants from us!
Poem taken from today's "Jesus Calling."

GOD LOOKS FOR PERSISTENCE NOT PERFECTION

God looks for persistence not perfection
In our walk each day
And to grow in knowledge
As we go along the way.

God looks for persistence not perfection
In the things we do
He whispers, "you need not be perfect
For I still love you."

God looks for persistence not perfection
He can take my small supply
And use it to His advantage
As I watch it multiply.

God looks for persistence not perfection
In each of us you see
For tis He that is perfect
And not you and me!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
This was made at our 60th Wedding Anniversary... so many memories
to sustain me!

MEMORIES

Memories....
Are precious each and every one.
Memories ....
Will put the blues on the run.

Memories...
It is so comforting to reminisce.
Memories...
Are a blessing of loved ones I miss.

Memories...
Are sustaining, as I remember them all.
Memories...
Soothes the loneliness, as things I recall.

Memories...
Are healing, in my deepest sorrow.
Memories...
Will keep me going for tomorrow.

LIVING CLOSE TO GOD

Living close to God
Midst the storms of life.
Living close to God
Through each and every strife.

Living close to God
When my path is obscure.
Living close to God
Knowing He is near.

Living close to God
Even when I do not understand,
Living close to God
Doing the best I can.

Living close to God
For there is no other way.
Living close to God
Is how I get through each day!

FINDING GOD

Finding God...
Each moment of the day.
Finding God...
In the sun's bright ray.

Finding God...
In the promise of the rainbow.
Finding God...
In all nature wherever I go.

Finding God...
In the vastness of the sea.
Finding God...
He's all around you and me.

Finding God...
In my deepest sorrow.
Finding God...
Who gives me hope for tomorrow.

Finding God...
In family and each friend.
Finding God...
Who's love has no end!
