Some agree the peach is good,
It’s good to taste and good for life.
But could it affect the length of life?
For life, God gives to those in Christ.*
In Christ, honor parents for length of days.*
Come length of days with humility and trust.*
Our days were numbered before our birth.*
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”*
So maybe the peach can affect longevity,
But only by the grace of God.
If you had the last peach,
Would you save it?
If you took it to the beach,
Would you freeze it?
If you held it out of reach,
Would you keep it?
If you used it to help you teach,
Would you share it?
*John 6: 40, Eph. 6:2-3, Pro. 22:4, Ps.139:16, Pro. 3:5-6

Are you gardening, are you gardening?
My dear friend, my dear friend.
Breathe the air, plants give it,
God alone has made it.
Garden for life, garden for life…
To the tune of “Are You Sleeping?”

Praise the lord with all your heart,
Pray to Him before you start.
Read His Word and you will know
How to laud Him, let it show.
Careful how you speak and sing,
He is worthy, the best refrain.
Sacrifice of lips and life,
Cleanse yourself and put away strife.
Jesus came in lowly birth
For salvation on the earth.
Poured out His life, the cross-made clear,
God was pleased to crush Him there.
Victory over sin foretold,
The tomb and grave could never hold.
Christ is Lord and Savior too,
Hail our God and King for you.
Splendor, honor, and majesty
Belong to Him in royalty.
Love and mercy from Him come,
Peace and hope and joy for some.
Loving kindness, compassion are new,
Every morning His faithfulness too.
Grow, bear fruit, prosper like a tree,
Share with others, prosperity.
Heaven and nature bless His name,
Saints on earth, do the same.
By His Spirit give thanks to Him,
Worship for life, our holy hymn.
Thomas P. Taylor
