Easter Sunday Reflections…


Today is Good Friday

He said “It is finished”, we didn’t understand that It had just begun. Be thankful for His sacrifice on this, Good Friday.

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. – 1 Peter 2:24

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime.  ~ Martin Luther

Peace & Love,

Sunday Reflections… He is Risen ✝️

Happy Easter Morning! He is Risen! 

Mark 16 –

Jesus has risen! 

1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.
2Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.
5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’

 

Have a blessed, reflective day. ✝️

 

“Blessed are those who have not seen and have yet believed.”

Saturday’s Virtual Destination

Well, if you haven’t already seen it, a LOT of us have been posting pictures we snapped of places we have traveled over the years. The idea is to share some beauty during this quarantine and “virtually travel”… It starts with a header like this one below followed by a photo 👇🏻

“Join the challenge of posting a picture of some landscape from a place where you’ve been, where the main requirement is that you NOT appear in it. Just a picture, no description. The goal is to flood profiles with landscape photos to give a twist on the situation we’re going through.
Copy the text to your status, post a photo and let’s travel virtually!!”


I hope you and your family enjoy a Blessed Easter Weekend!

Friday Radio Report – Good Friday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Another GREAT Show today with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass – The 180 Crew! Thanks to all that tuned in and called in!

I’m on with the 180 Crew with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass- every Friday from 10-11am with ALL your gardening and Outdoor Lifestyle questions – 731-423-8101. You can TEXT in too – 731-277-5155. Listen LIVE at 101.5 WNWS – FM.

I had several calls and texts today on the show. A mixed bag really – here’s a quick rundown…

  • Spraying fruit trees? Most all are already in bloom now – so wait till the blooms are all gone (you can harm pollinators and contaminate fruit during this time). After all the petals have fallen choose a good all-in 1 mix (Organic is my preference) and follow the label guidelines.
  • When can I plant a Japanese Maple? Right NOW! it’s a great time to plant. Plant the tree a little high and don’t use a heavy fertilizer, try Milorganite. And remember to mulch.
  • We had a guy ask about Hardwood Bark Mulch – is it good? What color is best? YES, it’s a good mulch. Make sure its hammered and aged. I prefer brown mulch but some like black. Use your judgement based on the colors of your home, landscape etc. – Whatever YOU like best is perfect 🙂
  • WHEN is our Spring Fest. & Water Garden Workshop? It’s Saturday, April 21st.! It’s FREE! Y’all Come!

    And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
    ~ Mark 10:34

This is ‘Good Friday’ and Easter Weekend! I hope everyone is able to be with the ones you love and has time to reflect on our many blessings. I plan on doing just that!

Thanks and have a GREAT Easter Weekend!
