Welcome to my Garden:

LIVE FOR JESUS

Live for Jesus...
In all you do
Live for Jesus...
He'll be with you.

Live for Jesus...
And let others see
Live for Jesus...
For He lives in thee.

Live for Jesus...
Even when you lose face.
Live for Jesus...
He covers you with grace.

Live for Jesus...
To the end
Live for Jesus...
He is your Friend!

Welcome to my Garden!
I certanily tried my parents patience at his age!

BE PATIENT

Be patient
In affliction and sorrow.
Be patient
There is a better tomorrow.

Be patient
With every mistake.
Be patient
God will never be late.

Be patient
With the burdens you bear.
Be patient
For God really does care.

Be patient
With my failures you see.
Be patient
For God is still working on me!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden!
This is me (out of my comfort zone) reading one of my poems.

GOD USES THE RELUCTANT AND FEARFUL

God uses the reluctant and fearful
To have His will be done.
God uses the reluctant and fearful
I know, because I'm one.

God uses the reluctant and fearful
We can begin again.
God uses the reluctant and fearful
He will master our fears and win.

God uses the reluctant and fearful
He gives them strength and power.
God uses the reluctant and fearful
If they will meet Him in prayer.

God uses the reluctant and fearful
When we step out of our comfort zone.
God uses the reluctant and fearful
He will never leave us alone!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden
The Heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1

ALL CREATION

All creation
Reflect God's beauty.
All creation
Have some duty.

All creation
Proclaims His Glory.
All creation
Tells a story.

All creation
The heavenly host.
All creation
His love will boast.

All creation
Show His heavenly hand
All creation
But most of all man!

Freda's Garden:


Welcome to my Garden.
Have you ever felt that your Spiritual walk is one step fprward and two backward?
Spiritul growth is not as visual as physical growth.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH IS A PROCESS

Spiriual growth is a process
Not an instant thing
We're not born full grown
With full gifts to bring.

Spiritual growth is a process
We grow a bit each day
We bloom right where we're planted
Where there is a will there is a way.

Spiritual growth is a process
Some days we will fail and then
We must pick ourselves up
Ans start right over again.

Spirtual growth is a process
That will last our whole life through
We shall never stop growing
That's how God made me and you!

HOW WE LIVE MATTERS

Hiw we live matters
To God, you see.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:

THE WHOLE STORY

The whole story
Is not just that Jesus died for me.
The whole story
He has risen, you see.

The whole
Is not a baby in the manger.
The whole story
Is a man who faced danger.

The whole story
Is not the virgin birth.
The whole story
Is a man of worth.

The whole story
Is not a man who met His doom.
The whole story
Is an empty tomb!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:

JESUS
Living...He loved me
He loved me so much, you see
He set His feet toward Jerusalem
And the pain of Calvary.

Dying... He saved me
From my sin and shame
He went to the cross
So I could wear His Name.

Risen... He encourages me
That I too will live again
He fought and won a victory
Over death and sin.

In Heaven... waits for me
He is my advocatem in prayer
He prepares a place or  me
And will return again, some hour.

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden.
This is what is known as Palm Sunday and begins
"passion  week." This is Jerusalem and today we will begin
a journey of the last week of Jesus.
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who killed the porphets
and stoned those who were sent to you, how often I have longed to gather
your children like a hen gathers her chicks under her wing, but you were not willing."
Matthew 23:37

OH JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem
He longed to save you, but you wouukd not hear.
Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem
He came among you, He was s near.

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem
You killed the Prophets of old.
Oh Jeusalem, Jerusalem
You missed seeing the story unfold.

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem
With your laws and tradition.
Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem
You left out love in your mission.

Oh Jerusalem, Jeusalem
Jesus cried for your loss.
Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem
You sent Him to the cross!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
God has always worked behind the scenes, in our country and in the lives
of each of us, to bring about His will.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Behind the scenes
God works, you see
He's on the job
So very quietly.

Behind the scenes
Of our pain and sorrow
God has a plan
For our tomorrow.

Behind the scenes
Of disappointment and failure
God works tirelessly
For us, His treasure.

Behind the scenes
Of world history.
God is always there
With much mystery.

Behind the scenes
He sent His son
To be a sacrifice
For everyone!

Welcome to my Garden:
"Contentment," reading to a child.
This is Jim, reading to Katie when she was small.

COMTENTMENT

Contentment
Is not in the things I process.
Contentment
Is not just doing my best.

Contentment
Is not found in school or some book.
Contentment is
Is not the way that I look.

Contentment
Is to in fame or power.
Contentment
Is not the man of the hour.

Contentment
Is not in fun or in pleasure.
Contentment
Is found in God without measure.

Welcome to my Garden:
Me, reading a poem at church.

PERHAPS TODAY

Perhaps today
I'll do my best?
Perhaps today
I'll pass the test?

Perhaps today
I'll do something new?
Perhaps today
I'll have a clearer view?

Perhaps today
Will be a treat?
Perhaps to day
New blessings I will greet?

Perhaps today
God will reveal His plan?
Perhaps today
Will be just grand?

Welcome to my Garden!
OUR SOURCE OF POWER:

Our source of power
Belongs God alone
But we sometimes think
That it is our very own.

Our source of power
Is in God who will always care
If He watches ore the birds
For us, He'll be there.

Our source of power
We must leave to God, you see
He clothed the lily
He will clothe you and me.

Our Source of power
We need not worry so
God will supply it
As through this wolrd we go!
