Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
This is Christmas baking from the past and today I'm going to do some baking.
It is my turn tomorrow to bring refreshments to Ladies Bible Class.

BAKING WITH LOVE
Baking with love...
Using recipes of old.
Baking with love...
Stories retold.

Baking with love...
Measuring ingredients with care.
Baking with love...
With my loved ones to share.

Baking with love...
Putting my heart right in it.
Baking with love...
Loving each minute.

Baking with love...
My family's favorite things
Baking with love...
Oh, the blessings it brings!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden. This picture was taken on our first trip to Hawaii.
I always feel peaceful when I see a rainbow...it reminds me that God always
Keeps His promises!

PEACE
Peace...
Some say is being secure.
In financial savings
And that is for sure.

Peace...
We all seek
All in different ways
So to speak.

Peace...
Promises the father of lies
But he has no peace,
No moral ties.

Peace...
I give to you
Our Savior says
And that is TRUE!

Welcome to my Garden:
This is my Thanksgiving table in the past...simple things bring me JOY!

JOY IN YOUR PRESENCE
Joy in Your presence...
The way to start my day.
Joy in Your presence...
I'll let You led the way.

Joy in Your presence...
When the day is dark.
Joy in Your presence...
When life has lost its spark.

Joy in Your presence...
Is my prayer each day.
Joy in Your presence...
I don't want to lose my way.

Joy in Your presence...
May it ever be.
Joy in Your presence...
For all eternity!

Freda's Garden:

Jim and I saying goodbye to Janet and Richard, on one
of their visits. Family reunions can be fun, but it's never
fun to say goodbye. Make sweet memories this Thursday!

FAMILY REUNIONS
Family reunions...
Are as fun as can be,
But only if those that are there,
Get along, you see.

Family reunions...
Are dreaded by some.
For the members involved,
Don't like everyone.

Family reunions...
We should certainly view
As a bit of heaven
For me and for you.

Family reunions...
Should strengthen each tie
And make sweet memories,
When the days have gone by!

Welcome to my Garden!
This is one of my favorite pictures of a cloud formation.
Jesus said, "Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven."
Matthew 6:20

TREASURES IN HEAVEN:
Tresures in heaven...
We want, that's quite true.
Treasures in heaven...
We want this too.

Treasures in heaven...
We can't even imagine, you see.
Treasure in heaven...
A home prepared for thee.

Treasures in heaven...
There'll be no pain, no fear.
Treasures in heaven...
God will wipea away every tear.

Treasures in heaven...
We send them on above.
Treasures in heaven...
Where we will live with LOVE!

Welcome to my Garden:
This is my mom, like all children, my mom was my comforter, when I was
little. When I was afraid, she held my hand. I think because I trusted her to
comfort me, that made it easy to trust God, my Father!

BE A COMFORTER
Be a comforter...
On this road of life.
Be a comforter...
Instead of spreading strife.

Be a comforter...
For those you see in need.
Be a comforter...
One who gives indeed.

Be a comforter....
When someone suffers lost.
Be a comforter...
Never count the cost.

Be a comforter...
For those who are feeling blue.
Be a comforter...
And God will comfort you!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
This is me in my kitchen before we moved. The kitchen is where I spend a lot of time.
With the holiday's coming up, it is so easy to get distracted and forget what's important.

BATTLING DISTRACTIONS
Battling distractions,
When I pray.
Battling distractions,
In a busy day.

Battling distractions,
In worship to God above.
Battling distractions,
When, with those we love.

Battling distractions,
The computer, the TV.
Battling distractions,
That hit us, you see.

Battling distractions,
Texting maybe fun.
Battling distractions,
I need a voice when day is done!

Welcome t my Garden!
This is wild lupine growing on Prince Edward Island, Canada. A
wonderful sight to see.

THE WONDER OF SIGHT
The wonder of sight...
Oh, the things you can see,
A beautiful sunset
Or waves on a sea.

The wonder of sight...
The opening of a flower,
The beauty of a waterfall,
In which you can see God' power.

The wonder of sight...
A child's simple smile,
The desert at dawn,
Where you can see mile after mile.

The wonder of sight...
A beautiful surprise,
The love-light that shines,
From a loved one's eyes!

This is me at the Melbourne Zoo in Melbourne, Australia.
This is fairy penguins. They are very small.

THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE:
The little things in life....
A humming bird on the wing.
The little things in life...
Listing to a bird sing.

The little things in life...
A flower's sweet scent.
The little things in life...
A day with friends, well spent.

The little things in life...
 Perfect shell upon the beach.
The little things in life...
Lessons that a child can teach.

The little things in life...
A sunset pure and bright.
The little things in life...
A kiss and hug goodnight!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
I serve a "servant leader," that saves instead of kills,
loves instead of hates. And walks in the light instead
of thousands of years in the darkness!

OUT OF THE DARKNESS
Out of the darkness
Into the light.
Out of the darkness
Away from the night.

Out of the darkness
Of hope and despair.
Out of the darkness
Sure God will be there.

Out of the darkness
Of disappointment, you see
Out of the darkness
Of dreams that never shall be.

Out of the darkness
Of choices, gone wrong.
Out of the darkness
I can sing a new song!

Freda'a Garden!

Welcome to my Garden!
This is Jim with Rich and Russ, when they were small. Jim does a good job
"praising God in hard times."

PRAISING GOD IN HARD TIMES

Praising God in hard times,
Is not easy to do.
Praising God in hard times,
Will bring a blessing to you.

Praising God in hard times,
When you don't understand.
Praising God in hard times,
Just hold on to God's hand.

Praising God in hard times,
When you can't see a way.
Praising God in hard times,
He's with you each day.

Praising God in hard times,
He won't ask you to go anywhere,
Praising God in hard times,
That He is not already there!

Welcome to my Garden!

I think when I married Jim, almost 62 years ago, that I was
fulfilling God's mission for my life.

FULFILLING GOD'S MISSION
Fulfilling God's mission,
Is why we're here.
Fulfilling God's mission,
He's aways near.

Fulfilling God's mission,
Repeating the Story.
Fulfilling God's mission,
Giving Him glory.

Fulfilling God's mission,
Spreading the news.
Fulfilling God's mission,
The world, we refuse.

Fulfilling God's mission,
For you and for me.
Fulfilling God's mission,
Is loving others, you see!

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.

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!

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.

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!

Welcome to my Garden!

This is a Christmas past, it's hard to believe that Christmas will be
here in less than two months!
Just like all parents, God likes to say, "yes" to His children!

YES-YES-YES:
Can we live triumphantly?
Yes-yes-yes, God will agree.
Can I make life the very best
God says, "Yes-yes-yes."

Can I make a difference with the rest
God says, "Yes-yes-yes."
Can I put this to a test?
God says, "Yes-yes-yes."

Can I overcome my pain?
"Yes-yes-yes," God says it plain.
Can I expect His love each day?
Yes-yes-yes, there's no other way.

Can I know His promises are real?
"Yes-yes-yes," God says with zeal!
Can I find on this earth, peace?
Yes-yes-yes, my fears release!
