On Fridays I like to join A Soulful Life in writing about something that has nourished my soul this week.
The 2 items shown in this image represent the 2 most contradictory days in the Life of Christ.
A day of triumph and a day of suffering just as we as human beings suffer many times in our lives.
On Palm Sunday, the week before Easter, we commemarate the triumph of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem welcomed by the mob waving palms.
On Friday we see His death on the cross, again mob mentality;
but what is most important is the day of victory.
As a young student we all spent from 12:00 to 3:00 PM in the church.
Took part in the Stations of the Cross.
As we became adults and had jobs, family responsibilities etc. those rituals could not be part of our Holy Week activities.
I went to church today and those feelings of peace and harmony flooded over me leaving me with a strength to continue on my life journey.
Last week I wrote of being disappointed in some of
the things that went on in the church.
Meditating on the reality of faith, today strengthened mine.
In Jesus name.
Thanks blogland for listening to me and sharing.
