Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!

I AM WITH YOU

I am with you...
Through sunshine and rain.
I am with you...
Through every pain.

I am with you...
In the trenches of life.
I am with you...
Through bitter strife.

I am with you...
Thought the valley's low.
I am with you...
Wherever you go.

I am with you...
When a loved one you lose.
I am with you...
Whenever you choose.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden.
This is the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. Jesus died to set us
free of all forms of prison.

SETTING THE PRISONER FREE

Setting the prisoner free.
With love and devotion.
Setting the prisoner free
Give God all bitter emotion.

Setting the prisoner free
Releasing all your hate.
Setting the prisoner free.
To make love your fate.

Setting the prisoner free
And regain your trust.
Setting the prisoner free
You shall find you must.

Setting the prisoner free
Letting go of the past.
Setting the prisoner free
You'll find you're free at last!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
It takes many flowers to make a bouquet  And it takes many different
people to make up the body of Christ...no one should feel an outsider.
   

NO OUTSIDERS

No outsiders...
Do you feel like one?
Just look to Jesus
God's only Son.

No outsiders...
You'll never be alone.
Christ died for you,
Your sins to atone.

No outsiders...
You will feel like you belong,
For God watches over you
And forgives every wrong.

No outsiders...
In Christ you see,
For we are one in Him
And together we are family!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden>

IF HE'S NOT LORD OF ALL...HE'S NOT LORD AT ALL

If He's not Lord of all...He's not Lord ay all.
But He is Kings of kings and men...
And Lord of lords
And forgives all sins.

If He's not Lord of all... He's not Lord at all
And most misfortunate are we.
But He is Creator of all things
And evermore shall be.

If He's not Lord of all...He's not Lord at all.
But He owns cattle on a thousand hills
And knows all things,
But is kind and loving still.

If He's not Lord of all... He's not Lord at all.
But He placed the stars with His own hand.
He counts the  hairs upon our head
And knows every grain of sand!

Welcome to my Garden:
This is Dachau., Where Hitler had 43.500 Jews murdered
during World War 2... If you ever visit it, you'll never forget
it.  A leader can be a Washington or Hitler and we need to pray
for the leadership of this country!

LEADER
Love you neighbor as yourself.
Enthusiasm is better than wealth.
Adoration belongs to God, not man
Determination to do the best you can.
Endurance will be put to the test
Reward will come when at last we rest.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden.
This is the little cemetery where my brother is buried.
For a long time it was a very had place for my mom
to go.

THE HARDEST PLACE TO GO

The hardest place to go
Is where we've been a failure.
We want to forget past mistakes
And past things of displeasure.

The hardest place to go
Is the highway of sorrow
When our heart is broken
And we don't want to meet tomorrow.

The hardest place to go
Is down forgiveness street
When someone does us wrong
We do not want a repeat.

The hardest place to go
Is the avenue of pain
We want it to go away
And our health to regain

The hardest place to go
Is down betrayal path
It is hard to trust again
When we've been someone's laugh.

The best place to go
Is to God in prayer
Where we can count our blessings
And know God will meet us there!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
We had no idea what the future held, but we  did
know that we could and did face the future together.

WE CAN KNOW THE FUTURE

We can know the future
Even though tomorrow is unseen.
The world is in a mess
And we have many an unfulfilled dream.

We can know the future
Though uncertain may be life.
Today may be filled with trouble,
And a lot of hectic strife

We can know the future
Although we're not promised another day;
We have only this very moment,
So we should make it pay.

We can know the future,
Because God holds it in His hand.
And whatever comes tomorrow,
He will help us understand!

Welcome to my Garden:
This is my mom feeding her chickens, Life on the farm
is a lot of hard work!

WE CAN KBOW LIFE

We can know life
Is not always sure and bright.
Darkness comes to all,
And to some, a lonely night.

We can know life
Is not always fair,
But we know a God
That is always there.

We can know life
Can be a difficult race,
And that Jesus promised
He will prepare for us a place.

We can know life,
Here will someday end,
But eternal life awaits,
With our Savior and Friend.

This is my is my dad and his cousin and some friends, making music.
Music is something that's passed on from generation to generation, how-

and that is more important.

And i will always tell
The old, sweet story!

Christian and always upbeat. She has now gone home to be

KIND WORDS LIFT A HEAVY HEART

Kind words lift a heavy heart,
A heart bowed in sorrow.
Kind words lift a heavy heart,
And bring encouragement for tomorrow.

Kind words lift a heavy heart
And help dry up the tears.
Kind words lift a heavy heart,
And will be remember through the years.

Kind words lift a heavy heart,
And make our burdens lighter.
Kind words lift a heavy heart,
And make the day brighter.

Kind words lift a heavy heart,
When through this world we trod.
Kind words lift a heavy heart,
And will be remembered by our God!

This is the view from the top of  Mt. Washington, New Hampshire.

A DIFFICULT HILL

A difficult hill
Is given to me.
A difficult hill,
So I can see.

A difficult hill,
To exercise my faith.
A difficult hill,
A lot on my plate.

A difficult hill
I depend on God's power
A difficult hill
I must be in prayer.

A difficult hill
God's walking me through.
A difficult hill,
But oh, what a view!

When we graduate to heaven, we will not be graded on our own merit,
but graded by grace.

GRADED BY GRACE
Graded by grace,
I'm so thankful I am
For own my own merits
I would be damned.

Graded by grace
Each step of the way
God's forgiveness is sweet
And with us each day.

Though unworthy am I
Jesus died for me
And I still wonder why?

Graded by grace
Someday His face I shall see
And it's all because Jesus
Went to the cross to save me!

WHAT MATTERS MOST

What matter most,
In your life and mine?
Is it looks or power or,
Is it the almighty dime?

What matters most,
When the day is through?
Is it the people we've met,
And the desire to be true?

What matters most,
When at morning we rise?
Is it a dread for the day,
Or anticipating surprise?

What matters most,
When life is at end,
Did we love the Lord,
And call Him our friend?

When your heart is filled with sorrow.
Look again....

Have I ever risked life or limb?

For me to live is Christ,
Do I walk with Him each day?
For me to live is Christ,
