Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:

Today's poem was not written from today's "Jesus Calling."
I wrote it several years ago, but it fits the theme so well.

Life on earth is transient
   here we can never stay.
To the Christian it's just a dressing room
   for some eternal day.
A place to clothe our soul
   in the house God loaned us for a time,
And the garment we 're to wear
   should be a very special kind.
First the gown of love
   no other can compare,
Then the robe of faith
   that we all should wear.
The shoes of steadfastness
   we should wear upon our feet,
Then the cloak of hope
   should make our garment most complete.
And when our souls are dressed
   the way God thinks that ought to be
He simply calls us home
   to live eternally!
