I remember waving the palm branches as a child, and that's significant, since I really don't have a great deal of memories from my childhood that I was able to hold on to (for whatever reason, nothing tragic).
And, there is nothing that makes a mama beam with pride more than watching her child or children front in center at church. I bubble over with joy when I watch my Gracie and Thomas march down the center church isle waving their palm branches.
So, as you can imagine, I videoed today's "parade," and it got me to thinking about all of their Palm Sundays as we face moving to another place and attempting to find another church in which to rejoice our Savior's resurrection.
I took the past 11 years of photos and videos and added them to a recording of my favorite Palm Sunday in which Gracie and all the choirs at Strasburg United Methodist church sang the most beautiful procession. I was sad to see that Gracie did not attend Palm Sunday services until she was 2. I am glad that she has since been in church nearly every Sunday since.
You are welcome to view and enjoy with me.
Happy Palm Sunday
