Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
This is wildflowers. The orange flowers looks like our state flower,
the California Poppy...Sometimes you can't tell what's growing in a field
"seeds or weeds"

SEED OR WEED?
Seed or weed...
Which am I today?
Seed or weed...
In God's field by the way?

Seed or weed...
In His Kingdom fair?
Seed ot weed...
How do I compare?

Seed or weed...
Are people blessed by me so?
Seed or weed...
Or are they blessed when I go?

Seed or weed...
May look the same as years go by
Seed or weed...
I must ask...Which am I?

Welcome to my Garden!

GET OUT OF THE BOAT
Get our of the boat...
When you sail  calm sea.
Get out of the boat...
Be all you can be.

Get out of the boat...
When in the harbor safe.
Get out of the boat...
You must move from that place.

Get out of the boat...
When the company's not good.
Get out of the boat...
And do as you should.

Get out of the boat...
When it sails the wrong way.
Get out of the boat...
God's with you today!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
This is the small cemetery where my brother and several
other family members are buried. Death equalizes all ...the
great, the small, the poor, the rich, the beautiful, the plain.

TO  BE GREAT
To be great...
Is a paradox, you see.
To be great...
A servant to others I must be.

To be great...
Other's benefits I must recall.
To be great...
I need to give my all.

To be great
In the eyes of God, not men.
To be great...
I need to recognize my sin

To be great...
Is so often sought.
To be great...
If I think I am...I'm NOT!

Welcome to my Garden!
This is  picture of the July Birthday's at one of our
Thursday lunches.  Sadly there are only two of us left,
Rick Timmerman and I. Marie DePoto is standing next to me,
she died a few months ago. Bernard and RoAnne Stanfill are sitting.
Roanne died a couple of years ago and Bernard died Sunday. He will
be missed!

LESSONS IN SUFFERING
Lessons in suffering...
We see every day.
Lessons in suffering...
That will come our way.

Lessons in suffering...
As time goes by.
Lessons in suffering...
On our Savior rely.

Lessons in suffering...
Will gives s a heart.
Lessons in suffering...
Compassion impart.

Lessons in suffering...
We're not here to stay.
Lessons in suffering...
There'll be no pain one day!

JESUS UNDERSTANDS
Jesus understands,
When our hearts are breaking.
Jesus understands,
When life seems to be too big an undertaking.

Jesus understands,
When tears flow like rain.
Jesus understand,
When we suffer pain.

Jesus understand,
When doubts come at night.
Jesus understands,
When were overwhelmed with fright.

Jesus understands,
This man from Galilee.
Jesus understands,
For He has walked our path, you see!

Welcome to my Garden!
Two of my favorite men, Jim and our son,  John.

CHRISTMAS HAS COME AND GONE
Christmas has come and gone,
But I hope not the good cheer.
Christmas has come and gone,
But I hope the feeling last all year.

Christmas has come and gone
There's no presents left under the tree.
Christmas has come and gone
A precious time with family.

Christmas has come and gone
The cards I'll put away.
Christmas has come and gone
It was a very sweet day.

Christmas has come and gone
I have special memories in my heart
Christmas has come has come and gone
But Jesus will never depart!

BE OF GOOD CHEER:
Be of good cheer....
Christmas  near.
Be of good cheer...
Jesus is here.

Be of good cheer...
Pray while you wait.
Be of good cheer...
Don't miss the date.

Welcome to my Garden!
This busy season if we want more patience, kindness,
and love from others... we need to say, "May it start with me."

MAY IT START WITH ME:
May it start with me,
If I want a world that's free.
May it start with me,
To be all I can be.

May it start with me,
A forgiving heart of love.
May it start with me,
Thanking God above.

May it start with me,
Caring for the need I see.
May it start with me,
The desire to follow Thee.

May it start with me
A kindness and a smile.
May it start with me,
To make another's life worthwhile!

Welcome to my Garden!
Life is like dandelion sometimes...very fragile!

DON'T FALL TO PIECES
Don't fall to pieces...
When there is more work than day.
Don't fall to pieces...
Where there's a will there's a way.

Don't fall to pieces...
when you can't find the perfect gift,
Don't fall to pieces...
Prayer will give you a lift.

Don't fall  to pieces...
When people are rude and cross.
Don't fall to pieces...
You can't know their loss.

Don't fall to pieces...
When weather is bad and traffic mounts.
Don't fall to pieces...
"Jesus Saves," that's what counts!

Remembering with love

The old rugged cross.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
Time flies by unless you are real young or in God's waiting room!

IN HIS TIME
In His time...
He will be there.
In His time...
He answers prayer.

In His time...
He will reveal His plan.
In His time...
With you He will stand.

In His time...
He will fulfill your dream.
In His time...
You will know His scheme.

In His time...
You will not walk alone.
In His time...
He will call you home.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
This is one of my favorite pictures. This little boy and his dog are
certainly giving their best to God!

GIVE YOUR BEST
Give your best...
Not your last.
Give your best...
Forget the past.

Give your Best...
To God each day.
Give your best...
It's the only way.

Give your best...
In care and time.
Give your best...
His love's divine.

Give your best...
Though small it may be.
Give your best...
He gave His best to thee!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
When I remember who taught me about Jesus, I'm thankful for my parents!

WHEN I REMEMBER
When I remember...
What God has done for me
I can press on
And live triumphantly.

When I remember...
That His promises are sure
I can survive
My trials and endure.

When I remember...
His Holy Spirit is in my heart
I know my hope is secure
And His love will not depart.

When I remember...
That Jesus died for me
He will return again
And I will live eternally!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
Jim, reading to our granddaughter, Katie when she was little.
I don't know if his word were words of comfort, but I'm
sure she felt comfort from his love. As we should feel from
our heavenly Father.

WORDS OF COMFORT:
Words of comfort...
In God I place my hope.
Words of comfort.
God gives me the means to cope.

Words of comfort...
God loves even me.
Words of comfort...
God is alive and evermore shall be.

Words of comfort...
God forgets my stumbling and sin.
Words of comfort...
Each day is a chance to begin a gain.

Words of comfort....
God has promised to be near.
Words of comfort...
He will away each tear.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
He (Jesus) had compassion on them for they were like
sheep without a shepherd.  Mark 6:34

SHEEP WITHOUT A SHEPHERD:
Sheep without a shepherd
Will go their own way.
Sheep without a shepherd
Will certainly go astray.

Sheep without a shepherd
Will be caught by some wild beast.
Sheep without a shepherd
Will be the enemies feast.

Sheep without a shepherd
Will fall into a canyon deep.
Sheep without a shepherd
Will find no peace in sleep.

Sheep without a shepherd
Jesus called the people of His day.
Sheep without a shepherd
Poor souls who've lost their way!
