Grandma’s Garden (Graces of Treasured Memories)

 As evening shadows start to gather

Tiny gems of twilight dew,

I wend my way towards the garden

In hope for dreams to catch a view.

 

For once stood rows of garden greens

Flourished with bloom by summers sun,

The earth once moist by heavens rain

I sit and wait for her to come.

 

I hear now footsteps through the garden

Ever so softly one by one,

In haste I turn to catch a glimpse

To find the morning sun has come!

 

(Poem from “Pebbles and Blessings” book)

Ecclesiastes 3:1

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

 

Although my loving Grandma is singing with the angels ~ she is alive in my heart! A shining light for the gospel of Christ, her testimony of strength and faith in the Lord still encourages my soul today!

 From John 3:16 to Joshua 1:9, I can still hear her loving voice asking me to memorize these two verses ~ “they will carry you through life’s trials” she would say, with her tender smile.

 Today I wish I had her bible, just so I could scan my fingers over the verses ~ feel the worn pages that were turned from reading her daily bread.

 Today I miss my grandma. Today I bow my head in reverence in thankfulness to my Lord. 

 Thank you Lord,

for blessing and enriching my childhood with the love of my grandma. 

 Thank you Lord,

for the graces of treasured memories. 

 Thank you Lord,

for tears ~ tears of joy that I have a promise ~ a promise that I will unite with my grandma, in the “Sweet By and By.” On that golden shore I will wrap my arms around this loving dear soul and say thank you!

 A special request ~ Dear Lord,

When rewards are handed out to Thy faithful servants, I pray that my loving grandma ~ a true soldier of the cross… with your grace, please place an extra jewel in her crown.

 I remain your faithful servant,

 Amen.

 Joshua 1:9

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

 

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
