Name plaques can be placed on the bricks around the cross. Together the names of those who have gone before us remind us of the witness cloud of Hebrews 12:1. The pergola and the vine that will eventually shade the flagstones reminds us of Revelation 7:16 "The sun will not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat..."
The fact that it is a garden reminds us that the Bible begins in a paradise garden and because of Jesus obedience to death on the cross ends with a heavenly paradise. Remember Jesus' words to the thief on the cross: "Today you will be with me in paradise." (Luke 23:43)
Lastly, our memorial garden is also a playground. Children will play on the flagstones where the ashes are buried. A reminder of Jesus' love for children - and also a sign of the life in all its fullness which Jesus promises to his disciples.
