Welcome to my Garden!

Where is m Focus? Is it on the things I have or the things I do not to have?

WHERE IS MY FOCUS?

Where is my focus
In this busy this busy life?
Do I take time to pray
Or is it hurry and strife?

Where is my focus
In this thankful season?
Is it cleaning and food
All beyond reason?

Where is my focus,
When people are rude and mean?
Am I calm and peaceful
Or caught up in the scene?

Where is my focus,
When things don't go my way?
Am I ill-tempered, impatient
And ruin the day?

Where is my focus?
It should be on God above
And the blessings He gives us
That are so filled with love!

Welcome to my Garden:
This is Mount Washington in New Hampshire, There is
a weather station on the top of the mountain that claims to
have the worst weather in the world. The wind blows constantly.
There are three ways of getting up there, a trail, a train and a road .
We choose the road and a car .
Sometimes life is like this mountain, a hard climb, with choices.
We need to make the right choice, for our climb.... Jesus Christ.

THE UPHILL CLIMBS

The uphill climbs...
Are sometimes hard on you.
The uphill climbs...
Gives you a better view.

The uphill climbs...
Are not always fun.
The uphill climbs...
Are not an easy run.

The uphill climbs...
Will cause a struggle or two.
The uphill climbs...
God will see you through.

The uphill climbs...
Are worth the effort, you see.
The uphill climbs...
Are sure to bring victory!

Welcome to my Garden.
This is a picture of the wreckage of the home where Jim
was raised. What do you see? Just a pile of lumber. But
when Jim sees this, he sees the the home as it once was.
That's kind of the way God sees us.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?
What do you see
In a sinner's face?
Do you see God's child
Saved by His grace?

What do you see
When one falls by the way?
Do see one condemned
Forever and a day?

What do you see
When the homeless walk by?
Do you see someone,
For whom Jesus would die?

What do you see
In the moment of loss?
Do you see Jesus
As He hung on the cross?

Welcome to my Garden.
This is sunset over the bay in Honolulu. We were on a dinner cruise.
You can see three sailing boats in the distance. It was not hard to
see signs of the Creator's hand in Hawaii.

SIGNS OF OUR CREATOR

Signs of our Creator
Are with us all the time.
Beautiful sunrise and sunsets
That are so sublime.

Signs of our Creator
You see as the seasons change
With the winter passing
Comes the joy of spring.

Signs of our Creator
Birds upon the wing
Make their cheerful noise
With the songs they sing.

Signs of our Creator
The beauty of human birth
The wonder of creation
Is in all things upon the earth!

HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HAND
We many not like what we're told,
But we can be sure Gods in control.
We may not always understand,
He's got the whole world in His hand.

We my feel we're gonna lose
And we can't do as we choose.
But let us do all we can,
He's got the whole world in His Hand.

We feel afraid to walk the street,
Some, even fear while they sleep.
We 're afraid of losing freedom in this land.
He's got the whole world in His hand.

We need to get on our knees and pray
And ask God to guide us every day.
All together, we must stand,
He's got the whole world in His hand!

"For everyone born of God overcomes the world.
This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our
faith." 1 John 5:4

THE WAR IS OVER

The war is over...
The battle has just begun.
The war is over...
On the cross victory was won.

The war is over...
But devil is still on the loose.
The war is  over...
But not everyone will trust the truth.

The war is over...
The devil still wins women and men.
The war is over...
But the devil still seeks souls to win.

The war is over...
But Jesus is on the throne.
The war is over...
Jesus is coming to claim His own.

THE BIBLE IS...

The Bible is the travel's map
To guide us each day.
It also is a compass
So we will not lose our way.

The Bible is a soldier's sword
As it guards the truth.
it also divides the Word
And gives us actual proof.

The Bible is a Christian's chart
We must read it each day.
It will make our pathway straight
As we kneel and pray.

The Bible is a fisherman's anchor
In the storms of life.
It will guide us through the seas, so rough
Ans keep us from all strife!

GOD'S REMINDERS
God's reminders...
Are with us each day.
We see them in many little things
So we need to kneel and pray.

God reminders...
We see it in the sunrise each morn.
We see it in all creation,
When a little child is born.

God's reminders...
In the lives of Christians everywhere.
We see God in the things they do,
In the way they care.

Is in our every loss
Reminding us, that life is fleeting,
But we have the promise from the cross!

Everything comes from God
All the blessings we receive.

Everything comes from God

Everything comes from God
He will always care.

Everything comes from God
Even things that don't go our way.
Everything comes from God
He chooses for our good each day!

From the time this picture was made at about 20 to now 84 God
has blessed me in so many ways, but I'm sure there were some
"why me?" questions along the way.

WHY ME?

Why me?
The question most asked of God.
Why me,
This heavy load to trod?

Why me,
To suffer all this pain?
Why me?
What purpose is there to gain?

Why me?
All the burdens I have to bear.
Why me?
Lord, do you care?

Why me?
But why not me, alone?
Why me?
This world is not my home!
