Day 83 March 25, 2013
Our Palm Sunday Hosannas are past and now we are heading to the cross during Holy Week and then on to the beautiful restorative message of Easter Sunday. Its been quite a journey from Ash Wednesday!
“Make a visual pun. For example, a handbag made out of hands.” -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin
“Practically everyone has known the taste of Palm Sunday, the sweetness of success and popularity, and nearly all of us have tasted the bitterness of Good Friday, of failure and rejection. What saves us from an endless round of ups and downs, what frees us from the tyranny of events over which we have no control is our commitment to press forward in obedience to God -it is trust in God’s love to bring about Easter morning, – knowing that the meaning of life is to be found in the knowledge and love of God,- and in sharing that knowledge and love with those who accompany us on the way.” Rev. Richard J. Fairchild
The people who walked ahead of Jesus, and those who followed him, began to shout, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!
He humbled himself by being obedient to death, death on the cross.
