Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

October 6, 2010 (In the Garden)

In the Garden

I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses;
And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.

And he walks with me, and he talks with me,
And he tells me I am his own,
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of his voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing;
And the melody that he gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.


I'd stay in the garden with him
Tho the night around me be falling;
But he bids me go; thro' the voice of woe,
His voice to me is calling.

- Charles Austin Miles

This is a very meaningful hymn for me. Thanks for the beautiful picture with it. This summer on my deck, I really felt that the Lord's voice was more easily heard than anywhere else. Great devotional. Hope to see you two soon. ~ Lee

I absolutely love this photo, music, and words that are written! I just recently returned to my one and only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I can never turn away from Him again!
