~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.15 -- "O" is for ...


Fridays Hunt for the week of April 14th:  (1) Starts with "O"; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Blossom

(1) Starts with "O":   "O" is for Odometer.  Our 2011 car just rolled over to 100,000 miles this week.

(2) Week's Favorite:  This week is the Passion Week for Christians to celebrate.  Jesus died on Friday night and on Sunday (Easter for us) he had Risen from his grave.  He died as God's son, sent to earth as a human to die as a perfect sacrifice for all mankind that would accept this as truth for them included.  Before this lambs were sacrificed as a sacrifice offering to God for humans sins against God.

Thus, we as Christians have assurance, by his Word of our being freed from the grave and ascend to Heaven with Jesus.  Things that happened to us this week follow in pictures: (remember the Odometer above)

The rabbit is not Bible material, but besides church services children celebrate Easter by enjoying the Easter Eggs and treats that the Easter Bunny has brought them, often in a basket the children have set outside.  Mrs. Jim and KP were decorating hard boiled eggs this evening.

When Jesus died, he actually was killed by the Roman Army by crucifixion on a large wooden cross.  Since then the Cross has become a symbol for Christians to celebrate his death and resurrection from his grave.  Here you see Mrs. Jim and I at church by one of the floral displays.  Note the cross in the midst.

(3) Blossom:  Our vinca flowers are in bloom.  So are the toadstools, aka mushrooms, growing in our flower beds.  We think their seeds came with the mulch.  It was bulk mulch and not pasteurized mulch from sacks.

Here, left, is one of the toadstools blooming.  At right I found this single blossom in a fairly large bed of flowers.  I don't know what plant/flower this is.

...Jim, I'm sending you my warmest wishing for a Happy Easter...Peace!
What a great post, all about the reason for Easter.

Have a blessed weekend and Easter. ☺
This was a lovely post, Jim... faith, flowers and fun. My Escape is nearing the 100,000 mile mark too... may it live as long as I am able to drive! It looks like you did a bit of fun Easter shopping, or at least looking. I like to shop for holiday items the day after the holiday, then put away for next year... when I'm organized!

The photo of you and Mrs. Jim at church was lovely, I still hope that one day we can connect in person if we come through Houston on our way to Galveston.

I love the little toadstools, now all you need is a few fairies and trolls to put with them and you can call it a planned fairy garden! :-) Everything is beautiful in it's own way!

Easter blessings to you and Mrs. Jim, have a good week ahead!

happy Easter
A wonderful and true Easyer message Jim. Thanks fir this post.
The picture of you and Mrs. Jim is lovely - you make a very handsome couple. I love all the bunny pictures in your post, but as you know, I am a bit of a bunny fanatic! The mushroom is good news - it indicates good soil health. It could have come with the mulch, although mushroom compost is also very popular these days. Their spores can also be carried by birds, animals, and even the wind, so there are many potential sources. The yellow blossom is almost certainly Stella d'oro daylily (but 100% sure it is a daylily of some kind, Hemerocallis species). The Stella d'oro is very widely used in landscaping because of it is easy to care for and blooms profusely - you should see a lot of lovely flowers all season long on it, and they don't need to be dead-headed, which is also convenient. Happy week!
Cute Easter Bunnies and a very nice picture of you and your wife. We celebrated Easter in Amsterdam it was cold and rainy !
That is quite the milestone for your vehicle. Love all the Easter bunny pictures! Beautiful blossoms. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Sorry I'm late to visit.
