LIFE DOES FOR ME NOT HAVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL

Life for Me does not have to be
Beautiful. I can Create and develop
My own Beauty.
It does not have to be particularly
Happy in it's circumstances. I can
still bring Happiness to others.


We must Never , Never rationalize
The Gospel,
My Mother, "Grammie", a Minister's daughter
Always said, "I Believe Every Word of
The Bible". That is the Shining heritage
She gave Us ~ Her strong Belief in the Purity
Of The Word.
When we begin to tamper with The
Word, it is like taking planks out of
a Building... and the Foundation falls too.
Then there is Nothing left.

TROUBLES ARE A GIFT FROM GOD

"Troubles are a
Gift from God"
- E. Stanley Jones...

Why are They A Gift?
Because We have
To grow in order to be
Able to Meet them.

I Thank Thee, Father,
For This Day,
For All of It,
The Good and The Bad,
For It's Joys
And for
The Things that
Made Me
Sad,
For the Sailboats,
And the Wide
Blue Sea.
But for Troubles
Too,
Because They
Brought Me
Closer to THEE.

A LETTER TO A GRANDSON (Spanish)

Join with Me In belonging to the
"No Negative Thoughts Club".
It is those Negative Thoughts That
Satan uses to Weaken You.
And Shatter Your Good Intentions.
You Say - I want a good strong Life
in place of the desolate experiences
through which I have gone. "With
Jesus to help Me Every Step of The Way!"
Mark says "You Can Have What You Say".
So Have a Good, firm, strong Life in place
of the terrible, desolate experiences through
which you have gone.
Keep Your Eyes On Jesus, And He
Can still Change Your Life
Miraculously.
If you do not give up alcohol now You Will
just grow Older and It Will be harder.
And you will lose Control of Your Life.
If You Will learn to Think This Way
and Your Life Will Change drastically.
Just fill Your Life With JESUS Before It Is
Too Late! Every time You get a wrong
Desire - You Know Who is giving
It To You! Refuse to accept it! Say
Over and over The Name of JESUS. . .
and the Evil One Will flee! He hates the
Name of Jesus - - Who is the Miracle
Worker In Our Lives! Does the evil One
Want Miracles In Our Lives?
No, he Wants Our complete downfall -
even our death.
God Is Greater Than Any Problem
We have. Join the No Negative Thoughts
Club!
If you Think or Say Negative Things - -
Negative Things Will Happen To You!
So if You Say ~ "It's a Miserable Day" ~
For You it Will be a miserable!
If You look on the Bright Side and say,
"Things Will get Better". . .They Will
get Better.
It Is a Spiritual Law. Bright Thoughts
Will bring Light to Your Darkness.
Satan just uses pessimistic thoughts
to make You Want to drink.
Do not think thoughts like
"I could collect cans to buy food."
Think Thoughts like " I Know
I Could get a job and Keep It.
I Know how to do good Work
and be an asset".
Jesus Loves You. Let Him Come fully
in control of Your Life. Take Your Mind
Off of Yourself - - and Keep It On Him!
Then, When You learn More of HIS Ways,
You can Help Him Win Others for His Kingdom.



(Amen!)

GOD WATCHES OVER THE SPARROW


God Watches over the Sparrow!
He Will watch over Randy!
Lord, Thou Knowest our
Troubles.
"Now Faith is The Substance
of Things Hoped For ~The
Evidence of Things Not Seen."
Father ~In Jesus' Name
Bring him home safely.
Light Came ~ and They closed
Their eyes to the Light.
It is Important for us to know
What God Is Saying
While you gather the Tares ~
In Jesus' Name May
Nothing prevent Randy
from going to "Set Free".
And from getting his
Cure from alcoholism.
How Many ways can We
Praise Him?
He sets the Captives
Free!
Shine On!

Cover Randy*
With Thy
Love.
Deliver
Him from
All Evil.

My Prayer Is That God Will fill Randy's
Heart With Glory...
With Joy running Over!
May there be No Negatives in his thoughts ~
But only Joy in The Lord ~ and a
Desire to fulfill His Purpose in
his life.
Telling him
"The happiest People are
Those Who lose Themselves in helping
Others."


*
Randy Charles Garrett

SAYINGS OF H.P.G.


God's Goal
Is Not to push
Us into a
Corner - -
But to get Us
Out of a Corner!


When You
Get to the
end of Your
Rope...
Hang on
To It!



Resentment ~
Do good to them
Who despitefully
Use You.

WORDS GOD SPOKE

Grow in Grace and Glory.
Do Not listen to the Voice
Of The World. You have already
been through All That.
But Now All is different.
You know without the shadow of a
doubt that You are of God's Chosen
Ones, just as Your Mother knew When I
delivered her from cancer.
Your deliverance from the Sea Was
A Marvel of My Love and Grace.
Remember the Nine Who did not Come
Back?
To Glorify and Live for Me In all humility?
I Want You as The One Who Came Back
and Glorified Me.
Your Mother is One Who did and does.
Try to discipline Your Prayer Life
As she has ~
By starting Your Days With The Lord's
Prayer and the Twenty Third Psalm. It
Gives Me an Opportunity to speak the
Other Thoughts I Want to convey. They Make
You an open pipe, as I have Made Her. They
convey Your Worship of Me, and Your glorification of Me,
and start My Spirit Working in You for Other
Thoughts I Wish to convey to You ~ and
Through You. So lay aside Every Weight
Of The World.
Let them not allure You for a Moment from
My Side.
They have appointed Your Mother Your Spiritual
Adviser. Listen to Her. She seeks Nothing For
Herself. I Want You to seek Nothing for Yourself.
Only for Me and My Kingdom.
For This Purpose, My Purpose, All of My
Purposes ~ I have led You to This
Hour ~ this situation.
Tribulation Worketh Patience. Patience is
a great Virtue. It Will Greatly help Your
Work or My Kingdom.
I Want You to labor in My Vineyard.
This is a Royal Command. What I offer
You is Far above The Riches of The World,
a far greater treasure than Gold or Rubies.
I ask You to Make Me the Center of Your
Life, and to look to Me at All Times, In
All Things.
Then it is I Who Will Lead The Way,
I who Will use you as a Yielded Vessel
For My use.
Glorify My Name. Live in "Newness of
The Life" I have given Back to You
As a Renewal of Life. Be fearless,
radiant and Free... that others May
See Your Joy In Me.
Through Your Experiences, let the knowledge
of Me and My Deliverance
Shine
Like A Bright Star ~
That others May be guided
By My Light and led to It.

*For I Am The Bright
And Morning Star,
The Savior of The World.*

The time is short. Save All You
Can for Me.
They Will be as
Jewels in Your Crown.
I have not forgotten The White
Ship You built for Me,
And how You Wanted Everything
White and Beautiful... full of
Grace. You even Named Her
"The Good Ship Grace".
I am not ready to reveal
Anything regarding Her Now.
But You May Know that Nothing
Is Wasted in My Plan, absolutely
Nothing.
Be content and continue to Glorify
My Name.

TO ME

As I awaken comes to Me ~
This Simple Word ~ Suffice.
"I Will suffice for Your Need
In All Things. Just
Keep Your Eyes on Me."
"I Will provide for You In the Riches
Of My Glory.
Share, Helen. Be My Sweet Messenger
Of Love To All Peoples."
"Strengthen their Faith by Your Witness
Of All I have done for YOU.
We Know What That Is!" That Would
Fill a Book!

March 25, 1992



When - in dying condition
19 years ago, My Prince
reached down and
Awakened Me - on that
Hospital Bed - as One
Who had been half alive,
half sleeping - close to
God in a way, but still so far
Away that When the
Darkness fell and the
Chasms of Pain sought
to Conquer Me, I could
not find Him!
Now Alive - fully
Awake Using every
sense and talent for His
Kingdom.

A PRAYER FOR MY FATHER

Dear Heavenly Father ~
We Come to You This Morning filled with your Love and Joy.
Our Faith in You burns as brightly as Many Lighted Lamps.
May We follow You as Closely as The Sheep follow Their Shepherd.
You are Our Almighty King!
May We submerge our own desires
and plans in Your Larger Plans.
We know that The Sheep have No mind of their own but they follow the Leadership of The Shepherd.
They Make themselves subservient To His Will in All Things.
We know that You Know The Way, and from Your Side We shall not ever Stray.
So May We follow You In All of Your Ways . . .
At all Times.


Thought - It is Wonderful
Leading a God Inspired Life!
It is so exciting! One Never Knows
When there is going to be
some interesting experience -

I AM EXPECTING A DAY OF GREAT JOY

I Am Expecting a Day of Great Joy On Thanksgiving Day. I Know it will be glorious as I walk Through it With You . . . as in My Poem ~ " I See A Bluebird".*
May the Blessings You bestow Upon Me on That Day be Multiplied - and overflow to others; that others May see the Beauty of a Life lived For You . . . and With You!
And Dear Father, May I teach Others Not to be afraid, as You have Taught Me so Well; but to Trust You implicitly For Everything; To Praise You For Everything! The Good and The Bad. For I Know So Well That For Me You Always Turn The Bad Into Good!
And so, My Father, I look forward With the Uttermost Joy To My Day of Thanks To You and Your Wonderful Son, Jesus.
May You be Glorified Together By All that I Say and Do, and May Your Holy Spirit Lead Me always.
Amen



*I SEE A BLUEBIRD

I see a Bluebird
In the Willow Tree
The Sun has risen
Over The Brook
And There Jesus
Waits for Me.

All day I shall
Walk and Talk
With Him,
It will be All
Joy to my Heart.
His Joys become
My Joys.
His Sorrows
Stand for
All the woe
My swelling
Heart
Shall surely
Know
For He keeps
coming back
To me and
Knocking at
My Door.
He walks
With Me
So often
Now
Ever more

and more.
He is always
So Cheerful
and He tells Me
not to fear.
He always says,
"Be not afraid,
For I Am Here."
He is very active,
And He
Says "let us go"
Where He intends
To Lead Me
I never know.

But I just put
My hand in His,
as we walk
along,
And as I do
This...
My Life
Becomes All
Song!
Because with
Him
Each hour is so
exiting ~ and somehow
Very grand
with Him I Never
have to feel that
I might be
Lost upon
Life's Strand ~

CHARLES PEARSON
Great Grandfather of Randy Charles Garrett)

,
My Father, Charles Pearson, a Wisconsin Senator,
Influenced my life greatly.
Although he died When I Was Twelve, he had
by that time given Me enough
inspiration and encouragement to last
A Lifetime. Then . . .
My Mother Carried On ~
Beautifully! She encouraged Me in Everything . . .
In Everything I did.





"If I write 'Many Poems' and Songs during Troubles, then Troubles are my Friends."

"Faith comes by hearingand fear comes by hearing".

"The more we sit in front of television, the duller we become".
We proclaim the word...

The Word is working mightily
in you
That is why it
is so important not to
dwell on negative things.
Control your mind.







People do not Always have to Understand.
One cannot make everybody happy.
What matters is that we make HIM happy,
and keep obedient to HIS Will.
December 21 1991

It's the Soul
afraid of Dying
That Never learnsTo
Live.

RED FINGERNAILS

I was lying there so still in that hopital bed - just a pale wraith in much pain. I had been having surgery for the second time.
My Special Nurse said - "Why do you not brighten yourself up for your family?"
She, the next day had brought her own Red polish from home, and put it skillfully put it on my nails.
What a difference it made in My feelings!
Miraculously my spirits rose. I would make it! I was not as badly off as it had seemed. The whole World seemed brighter. Even the pain seemed lessened.
That is the reason I call the color Red My Courage Color and it still is. It still gives me a lift out of the doldrums which sometimes come to everyone no matter how cheerful a disposition.

FAITH

Faith holds it Together. Faith Dares! If We could See Our answer, it would Not be Faith. And Faith is one of the strongest elements on Earth! God wants us to grow in Faith in Him and in His ability to Help us in Power and Glory.

BE EXPECTANT OF GOOD

The Negative thoughts We have
Are not from God. They are from
the Evil One. Of course he does not want
Us to succeed. He wants us to fail.
But In JESUS there is only Victory.
The more We fill Our lives With
Him - the More We begin to feel
the thrill of a New Expectancy.
First, We Must realize our
Need. Second, We must believe Christ can
Meet that need.
The Third Step of The Christian
Gospel - We Must Ask for Christ's help.
Jesus told Us,
"And All Things Whatever Ye
ask in prayer - Believing, Ye shall
receive. Matt. 21:22.
The limit He places is Not
On His ability Or Willingness to give -
but on Our Willingness to ask and
Our Capacity to Believe.
Think good Thoughts
For: if you think bad
Thoughts ~ they will
Already be bringing
Bad circumstances
to you.

But the Air Is Rich
Along This Walk ~
It has the distillation
Of Mountain Air
And We Walk in
Victory Leaving
Care Behind.


He Is Our Resource - Our Only One.
As Children, We lived On a hill and
Below the hill was a brook that sang
Beautifully all the day long, all the Night long.
A few times during The Summer We would follow
The brook on a long trek Up to it's
Source - A clear, sparkling Spring.
May Our Lives Always Copy The
Brook's As We receive The Living Water
Of HIS Word . May Our Hearts sing
A beautiful constant Song as the Brook
Does, on and on, without interruption.

We must Never , Never rationalize
The Gospel,
"Grammie", a Minister's daughter
Always said, "I Believe Every Word of
The Bible". That is the Shining heritage
She gave Us ~ Her strong Belief in the Purity
Of The Word.
When we begin to tamper with The
Word, it is like taking planks out of
a Building... and the Foundation falls too.
Then there is Nothing left.

In order to Work
Out HIS Own Plans,
God for a time
Had to take
Away My favorite
Outdoor
Sport ~ Walking
Around Laguna
Beach... but
It is Only temporary.
He has Promised
Me that He "Will
Not Always Chide" ~
That HE Will
"Deliver Me from
Six Troubles ~ Yes
in Seven."
He let Me have
a double Whammy ~ ~
the injury to My
recovered knee and a
hernia Which it is
not advisable to operate
On as that kind
Comes back again.
Between The Two
I have suffered
much pain this
Year. But I have
not complained because
I Know HIS PLAN
is that I should help
To "Uplift and
Redeem Man."
Of Necessity,
I Must stay off
of My feet a
Great deal.
And While I am
sitting ~ He Can pour
Into Me All of The
Dear Thoughts From
His Wellspring Which
He Wants Me
To Convey to Others.

It has been a Joy to do His
Bidding ~ and Never has My
Writing flowed as freely as
Now ~ in these very
painful Circumstances.

I rejoice! That I have
thus been able
To fulfill
His Highest
Wishes for
Me ...
