What really matters...
In the big picture of it all?
What really matters...
When you think of life's long hall?

What really matters...
What is my goal and aim?
What really matters...
Jesus knows my name.

What really matters...
Jesus died for me.

I'm certainly "a work in progress!" God's been working on me
for 83 years!

A WORK IN PROGRESS
A wok in progress,
I am in deed.

So much I need.

A work in progress,
A step forward and back two.

With God in view.

A work in progress,
I stumble and fall.
A work in progress,
God's grace covers all.

Perfection seems far away.

God works on me each day!

Welcome to my Garden!
When times are tough, the tough hang in there!

WHEN TIMES ARE TOUGH
When times are tough.
Get on your knees and pray.
When times are tough,
Praise God anyway.

This too shall pass.
When times are tough
On God, your anchor cast.

When times are tough,
Look for a silver lining.
When times are tough,
Don't wish life away, pining!

When times are tough,
Don't think of all you've missed.
When times are tough,
Thank God for what exists.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity
under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1

THERE IS A TIME
There is a time,
Under heaven for everything.
A time to be born
And a time to sing.

There is a time,
For lives to heal
And to know,
That forgiveness is real.


There is a time,
To weep, to laugh
And look to the future,
Forgetting the past.

There is a time
To embrace each day,
Scattering joy
Along life's way!

Everything we learn is not found  books!
"In school you're taught  lesson and given a test.
In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson!"
(Tom Bodett)

THE SCHOOL OF LIFE
The school of life,
We must all attend.
The school of life,
From beginning to end.

The school of life,
Gives its lessons first.
The school of life,
There's no rehearse.

The school of life,
Has a few hard knocks.
The school of life,
You'll encounter rocks.

The school of life,
Should prepare us each day.
The school of life,
Give God His will and way!

"The Best Place To Live~

THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE
The best place to live...
In the bosom of family,
Where you feel accepted
And can act naturally.

Th best place to live...
In the life of a friend,
Who will love you as you are
And on whom you can depend.

The best place to live...
Is not some distant star,
But in the main-stream of life
Just right where you are.

The best place to live...
Is within Jesus' heart,
Safe from all harm
Where you never will depart!

Sometimes the laws made in Washington, D.C. gets me down!

WHAT GETS YOU DOWN?
What gets you down.
Is a relationship with others?
What gets you down,
Is it your sisters and brothers?

What gets you down,
Is it more month than money?
What gets you down,
Do you find that life is not sunny?

What gets you down,
Is it what people say?
What gets you down,
Does things fail to go your way?

What gets you down,
Is it loss of faith and hope?
What ever gets you down,
Take it to God, He can cope!

a beautiful voice that she used to praise her God, she is singing with the angels
now.  Next to her is Lois Ayles, Lois touched many people with her knitting. Lois
also has gone home to be with the Lord. These women certainly prove that...

The poem below is the ideal of Christian
life.  I fall short many times...thank God for His grace!

SET FREE
Set free...
From all fear.
Set free...
For God is near.

Set free...
From a worried mind.
Set free...
To be loving and kind.

Set free,
From the sins of the past.
Set free...
To accept a love that will last.

Set free...
To nevermore roam.
Set free...
To believe I'm going home!
