When God made the first garden, He planted it with care,

He breathed new life within it for all the world to share,

The colors were so brilliant, and beauty blossomed forth,

He cultivated carefully and gave each one great worth,

When sin made its appearance the weeds o’er took the place,

They choked the life from everyone and made it dark and base,

When sin steps in, our broken hearts give way and start decaying,

Our consciences begin to die, we struggle with our praying,

It nibbles at our very soul and takes away our life,

It cuts into the heart of us, destroying us with strife,

The hidden darkness in us, soon rears it’s ugly head,

We have no where to turn to, we whither and we’re dead,

But hope abounds in Jesus, He’s done the work that’s needed,

He died for us and cleansed our souls, the ransom for us pleaded,

He won for us salvation and once again we’re free,

To bloom to full potential, He’s gained our victory,

A man can plant a garden, but it never will compare,

To that perfectly sown Eden, that God created there.










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

  1. I love this especially: “A man can plant a garden, but it never will compare,

    To that perfectly sown Eden, that God created there.” So true on so many levels. We can plant our lives, but it won’t compare to what God will create with our days if we allow Him to be the chief gardener! Beautiful post, Kathy! And what a peaceful composition from Paul! Hugs!
