Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’ve posted this video before, but I know many haven’t seen it & I really want this message to get out there. Talk about relaxing & a feeling of Zen! Many don’t even know that you can develop something like this at your home.

Zen is much easier to find here…

Imagine how you would use this space! Imagine the impact on your daily life… 💥

Have a Great Monday!

“Fear Not: For, Behild, I Bring You Good Tidings Of Great Joy” – The Christmas Story

The day is finally here! Merry Christmas! The food, family & fun go hand in hand this time of year. But, it’s easy to loose sight of what Christmas is really all about.

This old Peanuts story tells “What Christmas is All About” in a really cool way that has touched many people over the years. If you follow Charlie Brown you know about Linus and his security blanket. He clings to it! But notice that Linus actually puts down his blanket while he recites the Christ story from the Bible (Luke 2:1-20). When he says “Fear Not” he drops his blanket 😊 Faith gave him strength over his fears…

 

Merry Christmas! Peace on earth & good will towards men!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted to take a minute and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I’m already busy cooking and preparing my part in what will be a HUGE Thanksgiving spread for our family and friends and I am looking forward to seeing everyone and sitting down and catching up a bit. For our part of the meal I’m fixing a bourbon glazed ham, a smoked turkey breast & “twice baked, mashed potatoes! Jo stayed up late baking old fashioned pecan & French coconut pie’s, both my grandmas recipe 😉 Most everyone else is fixing a thing or two also (green beans, casseroles, rolls, cranberry’s, deviled eggs, dressing with giblet gravy, a big relish tray, more cakes and pies, etc…

A few pictures of Thanksgivings past. Always lots of great food and wonderful people 😍

Following the meal of course is Football, and naps with your belt unbuckled and the top button on yours pants loose, or just gone…  I’m going to try to pace myself 😇

Like I said, have a LOT to be thankful for!!! Family, good friends, a warm home, a huge feast & so much more! Blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours🦃🏈❤️

Sunday Reflections…

I love this poem…

Pondering Upon The Rose On A Sunday Morning…

The symbol of love
When giving in love a rose speaks for itself
The beauty is picturesque
The scent it gives lasting for ever

The rose never seen without her thorns
Still who can not feel happiness when a rose is seen or given?
Even for a brief minute, a second the rose brings a smile
Or perhaps a small sigh of delight

If one were to think upon a rose…
The thorns… the beauty…
The petals that carry the essence…
That lingers even after it is withered

If one were compare to our Lord…
He held thorns upon his precious head; the head of the rose is above the thorns
His love was known for its beauty and compassion, the rose noted for love
His words and Spirit lingers for eternity much like the scent of the rose

My Lord created the Rose
Perhaps he created it for remembrance of His son
Looking upon the rose I see it all so clearly
The meaning of love
The beauty
An essence that shall always be with me

~ Patricia Gale

Have a peaceful Sunday Morning,

Mark Carter



Sunday Reflections…

Taking time to actually STOP & smell the roses is a rare thing. Let’s all agree to do just that this week! Stop by the park! Or, take a walk, or go fishing, or take a ride in the country, or …. The possibilities are endless! The reward will be yours and yours alone 😊

Working and spending time in my garden is my enjoyment. Slow down this week & stop and smell the roses.

 

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
– Ashley Smith

 

Peace,
