You are the Master Gardener, you tend to all my needs,

With water you refresh me.  With love you plant the seeds.

You take away the grip of ugliness and sin,

You’ve given me a second chance – a new life to begin.

When all the weeds infest me and choke away my life,

You lead me on to heaven – away from all this strife.

I thank you, Heavenly Father, for all your love and care,

Now help me to proclaim you for all the world to share.

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

      I would love to see your garden. Mine has been carved into a hill with various ground covers and perennials. The hill is in front of our house and we did this bit bit bit so he would’nt end up in the street as he cut the grass.


      • A garden is always a work in progress. I do love doing it. I teach to groups on garden subjects as much as I garden and also answer their questions at the county extension office. It’s one of my pleasures and do it as a volunteer. I did love your post. I’m sure your garden is beautiful too.
