Let me tell you what I got today (Saturday) … a screen door for my front door. We’ve lived in this house going on thirteen years, and I’ve been asking for almost that long. My hubby and I bought it this morning and installed it this afternoon. The “two-hour” installation took almost four, but it’s UP! Now it’s just weird, because I see the light coming in from the front of the house, and I keep thinking I’ve left the front door open. And I have, but the animals can’t escape. :)
And lest you think I’m completely forgetful (wink, wink), today is Palm Sunday–the day we celebrate our Lord’s arrival in Jerusalem before his crucifixion. I couldn’t find an appropriate picture to depict it, but I liked the “crown of thorns” made to look like a heart.
John 12:12-19 (NLT) “The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A large crowd of Passover visitors took palm branches and went down the road to meet him. They shouted, “Praise God! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the LORD! Hail to the King of Israel!”
Jesus found a young donkey and rode on it, fulfilling the prophecy that said: “Don’t be afraid, people of Jerusalem. Look, your King is coming, riding on a donkey’s colt.”
His disciples didn’t understand at the time that this was a fulfillment of prophecy. But after Jesus entered into his glory, they remembered what had happened and realized that these things had been written about him.
Many in the crowd had seen Jesus call Lazarus from the tomb, raising him from the dead, and they were telling others about it. That was the reason so many went out to meet him—because they had heard about this miraculous sign. Then the Pharisees said to each other, “There’s nothing we can do. Look, everyone has gone after him!”
May your week–Passion week–be blessed.
