God’s Seeds

We are but seeds in God’s garden, 
His garden on Earth, His delight, 
the Planter of all of the seeds, 
the marvelous Giver of Life.

Planted with love and care, 
we will then take root and grow? 
His help is essential at first 
and throughout the process, we know.

For a seed cannot live without water. 
A seed cannot live without light.
To grow as he wished when planted
we must seek the water and light.

Pursuing with all of our heart 
those things for survival we need. 
If we are to live to the fullest, 
the Planter we must receive.

For He is the Light and the Water. 
He is everything that we need. 
To have life abundant and joyful
in the Giver of life, we believe.

Ricky Goodman and Gary Branch motored down to Empire, La. last week for a couple of fishing days. No lunch, so they didn’t stay very long, Ha. Got another call from Jean Melton. I always enjoy visiting on the phone with her.

Sue Cobb from Lafayette was here on Wednesday. She had visited with Jerry and Diane and I was her last stop, almost missed her. She is doing great after her back surgery.
