Welcome to my Garden!

LET IT GO
Let it go...
When others hurt you.
Let it go...
When you want to hurt back too.

Let it go...
When you fail the test.
Let it go...
In Christ, do rest.

Let it go...
When worry dogs you.
Let it go,
When you're feeling blue.

Let it go...
When in your life there's sin.
Let it go...
On Jesus depend!

Following the Shepherd, dear.

In the morning, His voice I hear.

Safe within the fold.

Who knows the Shepherd's hold.

I'm an early morning sheep,
And He shall not let me stray.

Safe within the fold today.

Welcome to my Garden!
This picture is out of my old King James Bible
and one of my favorites. When I set up house keeping
there were three things I thought essential. A King James
Bible, a Ball Canning Book and a Sears catalogue. I promptly
purchased all three. I have several versions of the Bible now
and I prefer the NIV for study.

A CHANGE OF HEART
A change of heart,
When Jesus you meet.
A change of heart,
When you sit at His feet.

A change of heart,
When you forgive an offense.
A change of heart,
Really makes sense.

A change of heart,
From a Savior's touch.
A change of heart,
He loves you so much.

A change of heart,
When you tell His sweet, story.
A change of heart,
When you give Him the glory!

This is a family picture. I am the baby the man standing on

My mom and dad are standing beside him. I'm so thankful to
have been raised in a home your God was always welcome.

INVITE GOD INOT YOUR HOME
We so many things today,
That seem to push God out.
Invite God into your home,
And He'll eliminate your doubt.

A home that's centered on God,
Is a happy home indeed.
Invite God into your home,
And He will fulfill your every need.

Pleasures of this earth,
Never can compare,
If you invite God into your home,
He always will be there.

If you would like blessings on your house,
And want to make your house a home,
Invite God to come inside
And you will never be alone!

As He bears your weary pack
God makes the impossible, possible
Guarding you from Satan's attack.

When He takes the tent you live in
And raises it from the dead
To makes it whole again.
