Welcome to my Garden!
"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise,
as some understand slowness. He is patient
with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but
everyone to come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

HE WAITS
He waits...
For you and me.
He waits...
To set us free.

He waits...
Every hour.
He waits...
To hear our prayer.

He waits...
When we have sorrow.
He waits...
With a promise for tomorrow.

He waits...
To make us His own.
He waits...
To call us home!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
The followers of Jesus could not see "a happy ending" to His
death on a cross. When our lives are filled with problems or pain,
we can't visualize a happy ending either!

A HAPPY ENDING
A happy ending...
Whatever life has, you see.
A happy ending...
For you and me.

A happy ending...
When the day is ruff.
A happy ending...
No fret or fuss.

A happy ending...
When you lose a friend.
A happy ending...
You'll see them again.

A happy ending...
To life's sorrow and tears.
A happy ending...
Through endless years.

A happy ending...
When day is done.
A happy ending....
The best is yet to come!

Welcome to my Garden!

NOW GO
Now go...
Into the world.
No go...
My message unfurl.

Now go...
Feed my sheep.
Now go...
Weep with those who weep.

Now go...
And be sure to wear a smile.
Now go...
Walk that extra mile.

Now go...
And be My hands and feet.
Now go...
Until again we meet!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
Pets never let you down and neither does God!

WHEN YOU'ER LET DOWN
When you're let down
By family or a friend
And you think...
There's no one on whom to depend;

When you're let down
And feeling so low,
Can't see where to turn
And there's no place to go;

When you're let down,
Dreams come to an end,
Just reach out...
And someone befriend.

When you're let down,
Think of that day that day,
When Jesus was let down
And the price He did pay.

When you're let down,
He understands, my friend,
And His promise to you...
"I'm with you to the end!"

A life filled with grace.

It's beautiful...
The morning sunrise.
It's beautiful...
A well kept surprise.

It's beautiful...
A long remembered song.
It's beautiful...
Forgiveness for every wrong.

This is another picture from my Old King James Bible. I have always
loved this picture.
"Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened and I will give
you rest." Matthew 11:28

COME TO ME
Come to me...
When you're weary and worn.
Come to me...
When you're facing a storm.

Come to me...
When pain you must feel.
Come to me...
When life is up-hill.

Come to me...
When you are afraid.
Come to me...
When mistakes you have made.

Come to me...
Each and every day.
Come to me...
And I will show you the way!

"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in
times of trouble. Psalm 9:9

A REFUGE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE:
A refuge in times of trouble,
My Savior is He.
A refuge in times of trouble,
He whispers, "Follow Me."

A refuge in times of trouble,
My Redeemer and my Rock.
A refuge in times of trouble,
One who encourages me in my walk.

A refuge in times of trouble,
An Anchor for my soul.
A refuge in times of trouble,
He encourages me to be bold.

A refuge in times of trouble,
Beneath His wing, I find rest.
A refuge in times of trouble,
Jesus, my Savior gives me His best!

Welcome to my Garden!
But we must first give Him the broken pieces of our lives!

FIXING BROKEN THINGS:
Fixing broken things
Is God's expertise.
Fixing broken things
He will bring you peace.

Fixing broken things,
Like  broken hearts.
Fixing broken things,
When happiness departs.

Fixing broken things,
Such as a broken dream.
Fixing broken things,
Is our God's theme.

Fixing broken things,
Lives that are  mess.
Fixing broken things,
Restoring happiness!

Welcome to my Garden!
In the quietness of dawn, is a good time to meet God in prayer.

IN THE QUIETNESS OF DAWN:
In the quietness of dawn,
Before sunrise,
Meeting God in prayer,
Is a blessing to realize.

In the quietness of dawn,
While most of the world is sleep.
We can meet with the Lord,
An appointment to keep.

In the quietness of dawn,
While the coffee's being made,
We can contemplate,
The price Jesus paid.

In the quietness of dawn,
While the day is brand new,
It is a second chance...
To ask for guidance in all we do!

Made in God's image, you see.
You are one of a kind...
He whispers, "You're precious to Me."

You are one of a kind...
No one smiles, just like you.
You are one of a kind...
Unique and marvelous too.

You are one of a kind...
Your exact finger-prints cannot be found.
You are one of a kind...
Your God-given talents abound.

You are one of a kind...
God will never reproduce you.
You are one of a kind...
God's there in all that you do!

This is our granddaughter Katie, when she first came home from the hospital.
She spent her first two months there and we thought the time would never pass,
when she could come home...but it did and she will be 19 in a few days.

THIS TOO SHALL PASS
This too shall pass...
Whatever it may be.
This too shall pass...
Whatever troubles thee.

This too shall pass...
Whether pain or sorrow.
This too shall pass...
There's a better tomorrow.

This too shall pass...
The darkness of the night.
This too shall pass...
When comes daylight.

This too shall pass...
Just you wait and see.
This too shall pass...
For God will set you free.

Welcome to my Garden!
This is one of my TOPS friends, on her 100th birthday. She is now 103
She must have found out how to live fret-free.

FRET-FREE LIVING
Fret-free living...
I've yet to learn.
I'll stew and worry,
I call it "concern."

Fret-free living...
Not part of my vocabulary.
I find that I must,
Fret and worry.

Fret-free living...
Life would be so sweet,
If fear and doubt did not compete.

Fret free living...
I'm still learning you see.
And God whisper softly,
"You can depend on ME!"

"Who of you by worrying can add
a single hour to his life?" Matthew 6:27
