Last week we celebrated Palm Sunday with the usual parade of palms and "Hosanna"s ringing in the sanctuary. The children led the procession followed by the pastor and the choir, and palms were waved and songs were sung to commemorate the day of Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem. I loved being with my church family and being surrounded by them made the holiday all the more meaningful.
I was sorry to miss the other Holy Week services because of our trip: Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. I enjoy the remembrances of Christ's sacrifices, serving as a reminder to me of where my heart is. And today is Easter. his morning we'll attend church with my daughter's family and we'll enjoy the celebration in a different place, not surrounded by our own church family, but by others in the extended one. Because it really is about commemorating the day with other believers and that we can do wherever we are.
To all my readers I wish a blessed holiday.
