The Sweet Jesus Rose

A long time ago I planted a seed
My garden of love was in dire need
Of a sweet flower smelling so awesome
Or a
blood red rose always in blossom

But in my garden there was a big drought
A flower or
rose could not even sprout
For there was no rain falling from above
So nothing grew in my garden of love

A long time ago I thought I was doomed

A beautiful rose just never would bloom
My garden of love had no soil or dirt
And no gardener to give it support

In my garden of love nothing grew right
Without any sun, things weren't looking bright
A sign on the fence, said, "Nothing here grows."
Till I discovered
The Sweet Jesus Rose

A long time ago I near lost my head
When I found
Jesus in my flower bed
I said to myself, "Now how can this be?"
I honestly felt twas no
rose for me

My garden of love would survive the drought

The Sweet Jesus Rose allowed it to sprout
A Heavenly Rose came down from above
Landed right smack in my garden of love

A long time ago I constantly cried
In my garden of love everything died
One would perish and one more right after
There was no reason for smiles or laughter

But this all changed on that beautiful day

The Sweet Jesus Rose first blossomed my way
I now thank God because everything grows
For my garden has
The Sweet Jesus Rose

I have a poem so much like this that it is totally mind blowing, & I always tell folks that I love it where it says in the bible that the Rose of Sharon is Christ!!! You get a 10 for this Ronnie, & my tears reading it & thinking of how much you & I think alike is such a neat thing to me. I wish I could find that poem I wrote, maybe I will someday & then you can see what I mean about it... Thank you, Oh, thank you fr this darling poem!!!!
It really touched me to the core just reading it, yes, hard, very hard to keep my emotions under. You see, I have a problem & I can't cry but a very little when my throat closes up & I turn all kinds of colors & choke to the point of unconsiousness from not being able to breathe. So, I am supposed to keep myself under control, but is not the easiest thing to do when I read poems like this one!!!

Thank you Brother,
Love, Sister, Patty :) (Truthfollower)

Patty, now you are making me afraid to keep posting them. I love the fact that you enjoy them but we don't want anything to happen to you. It was a combination of God working through you and I to get this Spiritual forum started. What a blessing it was that someone complained about "Sister in Christ". God works in mysterious ways. Creativewriter is a very, very talented poet and this section seems to be bringing him out more than he was in the past. God bless you, sister in Christ, Ronnie

No, Ronnie, dear Brother,

what's there to be afraid of? this is awesome!!!
I agree with what you said, God surely did use
the Sister in Christ to bring this about. He sure
does work in mysterious ways & I'm so thankful for this.
Nothing is going to happen that will change anything
as far as I'm concerned. I will just keep on holding up
your hands as Aaron & Hur did with Moses... You know
we're all on your side because your side is God's side...

Love, Sis Patty :) (Truthfollower)

This is such a great poem, and I know it came directly from the spirit man.

Nothing grows without God who knows.

Brother Ronnie,

I think our Sis Terry is very good
at finding the ones in the archives.
I loved the one you wrote for her as
a tribute!!! She deserved it too!!!
She's a tremendous poet, & is quite
beloved by us all... :D

I had to come back & reread this too,
Ronnie because my favorite flower is
the rose & alos because Jesus is the
Rose of Sharon!!!

Love, Sis Patty :) (Truthfollower)
