Today, PALM SUNDAY, marks Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week, leading up to Easter and the resurrection. Easter is a special time of year for me; a time for renewal and for deepening my faith. Dear hubby and I are off in a few days to celebrate on the banks of the Big Cypress Bayou in the piney woods of East Texas. Our plan is to eat a lot, do a little junkin’, commune with nature and each other, and celebrate Easter at a sunrise service, followed by a plantation breakfast at The Excelsior Hotel in Jefferson. That should be good for a few extra pounds!
Despite the atrocities going on in the world, Palm Sunday gives us the ultimate hope that we are covered by the Grace of a risen Savior. I’m glad to be me! -EF
