One of my most favorite holidays is on my mind this week. Easter is probably the most poignant time of year for me, thinking of the significance of the day. Palm Sunday at our church was just lovely. I never tire of seeing the palm branches being waved during the service, and the children walking through the aisles singing and waving their branches. A group of darling girls did a dance to the song Christ is Risen by Matt Maher. I adore that song so much and it certainly resonates at a time like this. Our church is great- they even had a donkey at the service for all the kiddos to take pictures with! It was very symbolic of just how much Jesus humbled Himself in coming to earth to take our place. He could have ridden in on the biggest white steed, but instead chose to use what any common person would likely own. He wanted to show that he came to die for each and every one of us-from the richest of kings, to the lowest of beggars. I'd say I fall somewhere right in the middle, and you know what? He died for me to :) That's what LOVE is people.
The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!”
I like to dress in pretty, light colors for this time of year. It ushers in spring joy and I rather enjoy looking like an Easter egg while I'm decorating them. Hopefully I'll be able to do a bit of that this weekend! How about you?
As you saw in my last couple of posts I tried out my new set of curlers! It gave me quite the mane I'll tell you. I've never had so much volume in my hair before! It makes me wish I had naturally curly hair. It took me about an hour and a half to set the curlers in my hair when it was wet and it's lasted about three days. I may start doing it more often! Maybe it's just because it's a change, but I feel like everything I put on looks better with a head full of curls.
I hope you're having a very nice week! I got to skype/chat with my sister this morning which was such a treat, since I haven't gotten to speak to her in about a month while she's been in Tanzania. Sounds like the next leg of her journey is going to be Latvia which will be such a change in temperature! I cannot wait until she's home from her mission trip and we can have a family day :) yippee!
God Bless all!
