Don't you just LOVE childhood memories?  I do!   I find a lot of comfort when I think back to many of my days growing up.

One thing that I always looked forward to, was Palm Sunday.  I know....sounds a bit different for a child to LOVE Palm Sunday.  I must admit... the thing I loved most was waving the Palms.  Did you ever do this as a kid?

At church, on Palm Sunday, the kids would always enter from the back of the church, just as the service would begin....We would all have Palm branches in our hands and we would wave them back and forth as we marched down the aisle.   



I am super thankful for my Sunday school teachers who taught me what waving the Palms was really all about.  

The beginning of Holy Week.....the Sunday before Easter.

Jesus rode on a donkey into the town of Jerusalem and as He traveled, large crowds waved palm branches and laid them 
on the road, to celebrate the triumphal entrance of Jesus.  

In the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest!

Blessings on this Palm Sunday!

Your palm shots are beautiful! We need to remember this day, even though the church buildings are closed.

Hi Shug!

What a precious childhood memory, those stories passed down from generation to generation will be priceless! I can remember waving palms and laying them down as we walked down the aisle at church, such a wonderful memory!! Easter will truly be memorable for so many this year, anyway it will for me, not being able to have my family here will be hard, but the meaning will be the same. We got our missionary home last night...what a relief to have her home safe and sound. There were over 100 missionaries on a chartered airplane from Australia to the US. Not all of the passengers were missionaries, some were just folks who needed to get back home. I'm sure they were grateful to get back to the USA!


Stay safe and well!

Hugs and Love,
Barb
