I’ve been thinking a lot about Palm Sunday today and imagining what I would have done if I had been one of the people worshipping Jesus when he came into Jerusalem. Even though I don’t like heights and am really too old to do this, I still would have tried to climb a palm tree to break off a branch. Like many other times in my life, God would have helped me when I prayed. I also would have tried to choose the best possible branch from the palm tree. I then would have helped others who needed branches to connect to Jesus’s trip. Finally, I would have tried to bow down very low while laying my palm branch before Jesus as he marched forth on his trip to help so many people.
