Welcome to my Garden:
"Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
Nehemiah 8:10

A JOY THAT ENDURES

A joy that endures...
Matters not the circumstance.
A joy that endures...
God's love is not just chance.

A joy that endures....
Matters not what you fear.
A joy that endures....
For God is always near.

A joy that endures...
Through the brokenness of life.
A joy that endures...
Through life's greatest strife.

A joy that endures...
Comes from God, you see
A joy that endues...
He will give to you and me.

HOLD MY HAND AND TRUST

Hold My hand and trust
Through the lonelily night.
Hold My hand and trust
When you are filled with fright.

Hold My hand and trust

Hold My hand and trust
When you can't see your way.
Hold My hand and trust
I'll lead you to a brighter day.

Hold My hand and trust

Welcome to my Garden:
It takes persistence for the butterfly to fly and that is the kind of
persistence God wants from us!
Poem taken from today's "Jesus Calling."

GOD LOOKS FOR PERSISTENCE NOT PERFECTION

God looks for persistence not perfection
In our walk each day
And to grow in knowledge
As we go along the way.

God looks for persistence not perfection
In the things we do
He whispers, "you need not be perfect
For I still love you."

God looks for persistence not perfection
He can take my small supply
And use it to His advantage
As I watch it multiply.

God looks for persistence not perfection
In each of us you see
For tis He that is perfect
And not you and me!

JESUS SAYS, "LISTEN TO ME"

I am your song
When you are strong.
I am the strength you seek
When you are weak.

I am your shelter
When you fear.
For I promise
To be near.

I am the foundation
On which you stand.
I am your guide
Please take my hand.

I am your comfort
When you feel alone.
I am the way
That leads you home!

Welcome to my Garden:
Jim with his hands on his Bible...notice they make a heart! His heart was certainly with His God and his family.

A FATHER'S INHERITANCE TO EACH CHILD

A father's inheritance
To each child...
Should not just be money
But things worthwhile.

Leave each child a smile
That they can embrace.
Leave each child a faith
So the world they can face.

Leave each child a love
For the helpless and weak.
Leave each child a thirst for knowledge
So information they will seek.

Leave each child  a belief
In our Savior so dear...
A wonderful inheritance
That will not disappear!

Welcome to my Garden:

Happy Birthday John. Your dad was so proud of you.

A DAD'S LOVE FOR HIS SON

Your dad's love for you son
was one of great joy.
He was so proud,
When the doctor said, "it's a boy!"

Your dad's love for you son
As he watched you at play.
He was patient as he taught
And guided your way.

Your dad's love for you son
And the man, you grew to be
He was so very proud
Of all your achievements, you see.

Your dad's love for you son
For whom he prayed everyday
Wishing only the best
Would always come your way!

THE LIGHT OF GOD'S PRESENCE

When now there is not two.

With help of family and friends.
Creating a new life
On God I depend.

How do I begin life without you?
I'll begin each day with God.
How do I begin life without you?
I'll find a new path to trod.

How do I begin life without you?
