Words by the Wayside “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived.” (1st Corinthians 6:9)
Reader, do you care? When you stand before God what will you do if you’ve rejected His Son Jesus Christ here on earth? Oh the folly of rejecting Christ when you lift up your eyes in Hell being in torments, crying for mercy at last, when mercy is passed. Behold, NOW is the day of salvation, the day of grace. WHOSOEVER believes and receives Jesus Christ as their Saviour should not perish but have eternal life. Eternity where?

Pastoral Leer & Church Meetings Romans 1:16 New International Version (NIV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Last week as I prepared to write this article I heard the news of the passing of Billy Graham into heaven. Billy Graham had a remarkable ministry. As an evangelist he had the privilege of communicating the gospel to literally millions of people through his life. Billy Graham famously commented “My home is in Heaven. I'm just traveling through this world ” . But what was is it that gave Billy Graham and what is it that can give us confidence that we too will go to heaven when we die? Billy Graham’s confidence was not in his works nor was it even in his character. It was rooted in his faith in the good news of the gospel. The gospel is good news. It is good
news because in the gospel we recognise God’s love for the world, which is most clearly demonstrated at Calvary. In John 3v16 we read ‘ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Billy Graham commented that ‘“God proved his love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’” Billy Graham knew that the certainty of a home in heaven was rooted not in following a religion or a set of rules but through a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Becoming a Christian is not easy as it involves a turning away from sin i.e repentance. However, the good news is if we repent and confess our sin, He is faithful and just, to forgive our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Therefore, If we have professed faith in Jesus Christ we recognise there is, therefore, now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8v1). This contains great news, because we can know like the apostle Paul Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come The old has gone, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5v17). I wonder if you too have professed faith in the good news of the gospel like Billy Graham and millions of others. It is important that we realise the only certainty of us going to heaven is found not in our good works or deeds or even our church membership but through accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

NOT JUST ANOTHER ICE-CREAM SHOP Portsoy Ice-cream shop is in the heart of Portsoy Village, Banffshire
e heard about this amazing ice-cream shop from a few people so we decided to go check it out for ourselves. When we arrived we noticed that there was a lovely seating area, which was perfect, as the weather was not great outside and so we decided to sit in. We went over to the counter to have a look and noticed the huge variety of ice-creams, hot and cold sauces, lots of different toppings and the amount of different ways you can have your ice-cream. What stood out for me were the waffles, especially the Bubble Waffles. After much thought we decided to have the Sharing Platter which consists of 6 scoops of ice-cream (your own choice), two hot sauces, frozen berries, marshmallows and waffles. The Sharing Platter definitely had more than enough on it for two people with six different ice-creams. We chose Bubblegum, Creme Egg, After Eight, Honeycomb, Vanilla and Raspberry Ripple, underneath which, were the waffles with chocolate sauce. This was accompanied on the side by Salted Caramel hot sauce, Fudge hot sauce, and marshmallows. We also wanted to try the Bubble Waffle which looked amazing â€“ this has a scoop of ice-cream, hot sauce with fudge and marshmallow toppings. The Bubble Waffle was a delight to eat and it was so good I ate most of it. Our visit to the Portsoy Ice-Cream shop was certainly a treat and I will be going again very soon. I now know why people
talk about this ice-cream shop and say it's different from the rest. Both the ice-cream and waffles are home made, the staff are so friendly and very helpful. If you would like to take ice-cream home they offer a selection box which has 16 scoops of your choice, the box can keep the ice-cream perfect for 1.5 hours of travel. The Portsoy Ice-Cream shop does even more offering hot chocolate, coffee, tea and milkshakes. They also cater for birthdays, weddings and lots of other different types of events. There are gifts in the shop and selections of jam, marmalade and chutney. It really is an amazing place to visit and a treat for all the family, I will definitely be recommending the Portsoy Ice-Cream Shop. After your ice-cream there is so much more to explore in Portsoy.

clean-up the grass. The price is probably similar too.
The main task of the off-season is scarifying out moss and thatch, and it is best done either at the end of a season (autumn) or just before a new season starts (spring). Some enthusiasts do it twice ! The general advice is donâ€™t scarify once the grass has started growing. New grass in the spring will be damaged by the rather traumatic and invasive scarification process.

pril tends to be the month when everything in the garden starts to wake up, and on the first of the sunny days my phone starts to ring off the hook and it’ll be November before I know it! I love it though, this time of year, especially so as I’ve been doing lots of work in my own garden that will start to show itself soon enough – plants and trees that have gone in ‘bare root’ will suddenly burst into life, belying their straggly appearance when they arrived in cardboard boxes a couple of months ago! I’ll be looking to spend some time in the garden before the spring growth spurt kicks in (usually some time in May, and it lasts about 6-8 weeks). During the spring growth spurt, you have to work hard to stand still sometimes, so a bit of extra effort now will pay dividends.
Do gently hoe over your borders to disrupt any emerging weeds under the soil. Do dig well-rotted horse or cow manure into your beds. Do cut your lawn if it needs it, but just a light cut for the first one. Do prune Forsythia sp. once it has finished flowering. Do scarify your lawn with a spring-tine rake for smaller areas, or hire a machine for larger areas. Do add a lawn feed to your grass. Do treat decks and hard surfaces for moss.
Don’t apply lawn mosskiller by hand, however careful you are it will create ugly black streaks that take ages to recover. Use a spreader. Don’t go overboard with your lawn feed if you have large areas of grass and no time to cut it. I only ever use an autumn feed on my lawn which has a bit less nitrogen in. Don’t forget to top-dress plant pots – skim a bit of old compost away, and add some new compost. Don’t forget to start spraying roses to help keep pests away. You can get organic sprays that use things like garlic. Once the overnight temperatures are over 6C, the grass will start growing in earnest, so be sure your mower is working nicely. Mow at least once a fortnight to prevent weeds setting seed. If you do scarify, as advised above, don’t mow it for a few days afterwards as it is a stressful process for the grass.
I’LL BE ADDING SOME MORE BLOG ARTICLES OVER THE COMING WEEKS ABOUT HOW TO DO VARIOUS JOBS IN THE GARDEN, SO KEEP AN EYE ON MY WEBSITE AT WWW.THEMOUNTAINGARDENER.CO.UK. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, OR IDEAS FOR USEFUL THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO READ ABOUT HERE, OR ON MY BLOG, THEN JUST DROP ME A LINE.

Simnel Cake This spiced fruit cake has a layer of marzipan and another one on top. Originally the cake was baked by girls in service to take home with them on Mothering Sunday. It is now more traditional to have Simnel Cake at Easter time.
Ingredients: 100g glace cherries 500g mixed dried fruit 175g soft butter (unsalted) 175g caster sugar zest of 1 lemon 225g plain flour 1 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger 25g ground almonds 3 eggs 2 tablespoons milk 1 kg yellow marzipan Icing sugar (for rolling marzipan) 1 tablespoon apricot jam (melted) 1 egg white
Method: 1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Grease and line both the bottom and sides of a 20cm cake tin with a double layer of brown baking paper.
2. Chop the cherries finely and mix them with the rest of the dried fruit. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and soft (using an electric mixer is easiest), add the lemon zest.
3. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and ground almonds together into a bowl. Add 1 of the eggs to the creamed butter mixture along with 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture, then beat in the remaining eggs in the same way. Beat in the rest of the dry ingredients, and then the milk. Finally fold in the fruit.
4. With a small amount of icing sugar lightly dust a worktop space and then roll out just less than half of the marzipan into a circle (the size of the tin) which will fit in the middle of the cake.
5. Tip half of the cake mixture into the tin and smooth down. Place the marzipan circle on top of it. Spread the rest of the cake mixture into the tin on top of the marzipan and level. Bake for about half an hour and then lower the oven temperature to 150°C for another hour and a half or until the cake has risen and is firm on top. Allow the cake to cool completely on a rack before removing it from the tin.
