As I watched the sun coming up this morning, glowing behind the bins across the road, I was reminded how much I. LOVE. PALM SUNDAY! I think of what it would have been like to stand on the side of that road, running ahead of everyone to catch a glimpse as our King rode a donkey down the dusty road into Jerusalem. I can hear the kids yelling, laughing, cheers from the adults - waving to Jesus like he was the Biggest Star for centuries coming to their town.... Getting hit in the face w/ a palm leaf from a youngster who was so excited to wave it as he yelled "HOSANNA! HOSANNA TO THE KING!", not realizing I was standing right behind him. ;)
The smile Jesus had on his gentle, loving face as He made his way through the people...knowing in the back-of-his-mind what he would have to endure in the next few days. I love this day....
