My loss of Freda has been devastating, and I'm just coming around to be able to cope with her everyday absence.  I took her into my home, some 6 or 7 years ago, to help care for her.  I knew a time would come, when she would pass into the arms of Jesus.  But, I still wasn't completely prepared for that to happen.  We were close friends for some 20 years!  
I hope you enjoy what I post from these "Freda Tapes".  I'll try to do it often. Thanks.

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.
