I received a tiny pot of flowers,
in church for Mother's Day,
a gift of caring that would last,
expressing more than words could say.
But by the time we got it home,
its leaves were drooping down low,
it looked like it was about to die,
all its future flowers I would not know.
But I gave it water, drenching it,
wetting it through and through
hoping that it was not too late,
watching to see what the water would do.
After a while I looked again,
the difference was plain to see,
for after that water had soaked down in,
it came back to life, pretty as can be.
It made me think of how I was
before Jesus came into my life,
my leaves were wilted, my spirit crushed,
I saw nothing but sorrow and strife,
Then one day, in answer to the smallest plea,
Jesus was there by my side,
saying that He had the water of life for me,
if I would let Him in me abide.
I said 'yes' that day, and just like that plant,
Jesus gave me that water and oh, so much more,
for after bringing me brand new life,
He showed me what else He had in store.
Of all the riches that fill my life,
there is one that is ever new,
and that is the best gift from God that I have,
is the wonder of loving you!
Now I live in a brand new garden,
with you right by my side,
for you were the husband God picked for me,
and I was meant to be your bride.
Every day brings forth new flowers,
sprinkled with grace, like heaven's dew,
and I gather them up to make a love-bouquet,
wrapped in my heart, I give them to you!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
