~~ 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.
