And while I don’t deny I wouldn’t love being under some of these palms right now….
…I am even more inspired and thankful for the man that went walking through, over, and under palm fronds towards a calling that had to be scary to fulfill.
Today is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week in the Christian faith. Today was the day, years ago, when Jesus began the final leg of his journey to be sacrificed as the perfect offering for our sins. To give his life so that we may all be saved. I pray that you all consider that this upcoming week and all of the blessings that have been poured out for you, thanks to our beloved Jesus pouring out his blood for you. It is a message that brings me so so so much joy that I can’t help but shout, or type, it out to all of you. 🙂 Thank God this week and share that love with others! Through a smile to a stranger, a hug to a neighbor, a loving comment to a friend, or other acts of service.
Last night, we continued the celebration of a wonderful day to serve God by having a great night of fellowship with a group of our friends. We all met for a cookout in the afternoon and a fun time was had by all.
The men spent time getting comfy with the grill.
The ladies spent time preparing the kitchen amidst laughter and conversation.
And a good beer. 😀
Lastly, all the little kiddos had a blast just being themselves and entertaining us.
It was a fabulous night! And if any of you from last night happen to be reading this right now, I pray that you know just how much I value your friendship and could not be blessed with better friends than each of you. 🙂
- Did you do anything for Palm Sunday? We of course went to church for a great service. They did have a Palm Parade in the nursery for kids to participate in. M loved waving her palm!
