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…

Thinking about the Awesome power of Nature this morning. Hurricane Barry has come ashore and is flooding from the Gulf Coast to points north… Including our area in Tennessee over the next couple days. Batten down the hatches!

Prayers for the people in the path of this Hurricane.

 

There is no way to stop or reason with a Hurricane… But if anyone could, it would be Jimmy B. 😊 This is one of my favorites off A1A…

 

Have a blessed week 🙏🏻 And stay dry 💦🌂

Sunday Reflections…

Yesterday afternoon we went up to the river to look around at the flood. Many of the worst hit areas still aren’t accessible at all… But from what I saw, many have lost everything! Historic floods = Disaster!

Floods have devastated many areas up and down the TN River.

Below is a prayer I saw online about the flood and the flood victims. Our hopes and prayers are with the folks affected all up and down the river 🙏🏻

“Lord I pray your hand of safety and guidance upon all the victims of the regions under flood conditions. Bless these people Lord and keep them safe. Do not let the flood waters steal their lives. Drive back the floods to protect their homes and their precious animals”.

~ Amen 🙏🏻

 

The water has finally crested & will start to slowly recede now.

 

Have a blessed day,

 

~ Mark C.

 



Rest In Peace Mark Asher

Cancer is a terrible disease! Mark Asher fought the good fight and has gone on to glory. Rest In Peace Mark 😞

Rest In Peace Mark Asher!

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there.
I did not die.

~ Mary Frye

 



Bill Way passed this morning. Rest In Peace my friend!

This is a message from Bills daughter posted to Facebook this morning  –

“At 6:52 am on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, daddy peacefully left us here on earth to be reunited with his mom and dad in Heaven. I know Cody, their beloved border collie, will be jumping with joy to see him again.

We will miss you more than you know, but the love you showed us throughout our lives here on earth will be forever in our hearts. We’ve made memories that will last a lifetime. We know just how proud you were of your kids and grandkids. We will continue to make you proud in the years to come.

We share a love of weather and always have. I will look for you in rainbows and, of course, thunderstorms since that’s what we love most. ❤️

I love you, daddy! I can’t wait to see you again.”

– God Bless this family! Pray for their comfort and peace during this emotional time.

Rest In Peace my friend. What a life you lived 😊

Love you Bill ❤️

Sunday Reflections…

Here we are, past Thanksgiving & “Black Friday” and Christmas is coming fast. BUT, Sometimes life steps in and slows things down for you & gives you something to truly reflect upon…

Last night I found out a great friend has been diagnosed with terminal cancer… This was completely out of the blue & a shock to all that know him. I am talking about local radio & TV man Bill Way.

Bills newest show is called ‘Medium Cool’, but we all know that Bill is the Coolest! I have spent every Friday with him the last 12+ years talking about Outdoor Living, Koi Ponds, Plants, Animals and so much more. He is a special person! Please say a prayer for Bill Way and his family.

Here’s an excerpt about Bill from the paper –

“We are sad to inform talk radio legend Bill Way has broadcast his final show, according to a Facebook post by his daughter Kristen.

She cited Nov. 16 as the day of his final show. Since then, he’s been diagnosed with a mass on his pancreas and spots on his liver.

Way has been released into hospice care after spending the past week at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

“While he isn’t in any pain, please pray for peace and comfort in the days ahead,” Mason said in her post.

Way had just returned to local radio waves with his new Bill Way Show “Medium Cool” on 93.1 WTJS-FM.

Bill Way is 74 years old.”
– Information provided by Brandon Shields of the Jackson Sun. Please keep Bill and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

I hugged my family a little longer last night… Life is so fragile and can change on a dime.  I definitely have a Lot to be Thankful for! And I have a Lot to reflect on too. Go hug the ones you love and spend time with them today. Time is all we have to share.

– A Poem About Time

Time is slow, time is fast.
It never stops, but it always lasts.
It’s time for bed, it’s time for school.
To waste your time is to be a fool.

If the time is right, the timing will be perfect.
Having the time of your life will always be worth it.
Some spend their time mad,
Some spend their time sad.
For some people time is all they ever had.

Some spend their time and some people save it.
Some love wasting time and some people hate it.
People waste time being in jail
People waste time being mad when they fail.

Some people have lots of time to spare.
Others spend their time not having a care.
It’s time to stop, it’s time to go.
Time can move fast or it can move slow.

You can lose yourself or lose your mind,
But as life goes on you will never lose time.

~ Anxhelo Llangozi

 

Peace, ❤️ & Prayers for Bill Way & his family.

I love you Bill!
