In My Garden

In My Garden

In my garden I'm growing weeds,
I tend to pick them when I please.
Weeds have a way of sneaking in,
Just like weeds so are our sins.

Sin sneaks up and settles in,
Like with weeds we must begin
To rid ourselves of every one.
I think my work is never done.

Rid myself of all my sins?
Overwhelmed, I must begin,
One by one with my God's help,
I cannot do it by myself.

Bye-bye sin, one by one,
I know my work has just begun.
You're not welcomed anymore.
I mean business!   This is war!

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
