Palm Sunday

Are you aware that Palm Sunday was celebrated today?? It is a date that may change every year but it always occurs the Sunday before Easter. Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week that leads up to Easter. Easter is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was the Sunday prior to this event Jesus triumphantly had entered Jerusalem where he had been greeted with crowds of people throwing down palms as he passed.

Jesus had rode into the town on a donkey. Jesus was given the royal treatment as large crowd had gathered him laying their cloaks and palms as he passed. There were shouts of "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" It seemed that Jesus had a celebrity like following of those who had heard of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Perhaps, the crowd wanted Jesus to be the king but he had no desire to be the king here on the earth for the plan had all ready been created and now Jesus was to fulfill the promise. .

Today, we celebrated Palm Sunday by going to church and enjoying an Easter cantata tonight. What a beautiful time to celebrate our Jesus and what he did for us.
