From Freda's notebook: "How to have a good day!"


I felt this would be a good post to put on here today,"Good Friday".  Freda did her best to work with each day to make it better, by trusting the Lord to see her through it.  I pray that you will do the same and make each day "Good".

Now that Sister Freda has made her ultimate trip, to meet the Lord face to face, we have only those memories she wrote in her notebooks.  If you enjoy reading these, please let me know, so I can find more to post. Thanks.

Remembrances of Freda "A Cross to Bear"


As Freda's health worsened, her cross became extremely heavy, but she kept right on carrying it!  Her faith saw her through to the end.  She believed that her cross was no where near as heavy as the one Jesus bore on her behalf.  She died in peace, having laid her cross down at the feet of Jesus.  May she be an example for all of us, of a life lived in faith to God.  When your cross seems too much to bear, think of her message here, and go on in victory!

Freda's Prayer Time


I hope this gives you a glimpse into how Freda saw her communion with the Lord.  She was my "In House" prayer warrior!  Oh, how I miss her! But, now I know that she is with the Lord, and she has been rewarded for all her prayers.

Freda "A Ship is Sailing"


To all those who have been followers of Freda's posts on my blog site:
For the last few days, Freda has been off shore of Heaven, searching for a place to put in. 
This morning, she found her way safely into the harbor and her ship docked.
Now, she will be gazing out to sea, awaiting arrival of the rest of us.
If you don't know Jesus, as your personal Savior, now is the time to make that move, onto that ship!  You might not get another chance to do it!  Without being on that ship, you will not be allowed into the same port as Freda. 
For those of us, who know Jesus, in that special way; we have the promise of being Sister Freda once again.  May God bless you and keep you, till that time comes.
Be sure to continue to follow the posts on my blog site, as some of them will be stories that Sister Freda told to me about her life. 
I am ready to accept your comments and condolences on her behalf.  Thank you!
