The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast
heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out,
“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”
And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,
“Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!”
His disciples did not understand these things at first,
but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered
that these things had been written about him and had been done to him.
Thank you for sharing this passage at the beginning of this sacred week.
I am resting, refocusing, recalibrating to prepare for this week, and this gentle vintage photo speaks what I long to be true in my heart …
Blessings, incourage sisters …

Just love palm Sunday…though it kicks off a solemn week in the church. It is a powerful time of recalling and ultimately celebrating what our Lord did for us. This moves me and makes me so thankful!

Thank you for the reminder that this is a sacred week! Palm Sunday is a celebration that goes into mourning and sadness–then complete celebration next Sunday!
