Fear, Faith & Love – Day 21
I was out walking today, Palm Sunday. (Perhaps encouraged to go outside by enjoying the energy of all the green I was using to color my palm frond.) It’s been a gorgeous day outside. I was walking towards the park on Gleed and Harrison where our church usually worships together with other churches on Palm Sunday when I ran into two friends walking their dogs. Some of you may know them, Stephen and Jerome. Jerome was wearing a champagne colored suit with collar open. Stephen wore a beautiful blue shirt and light colored slacks that looked freshly pressed. In other words, they looked like fashion plates. When I expressed my appreciation for how spiffy they looked, they said they had decided to wear clothing appropriate for Palm Sunday, and next Sunday they would put on their Easter bonnets.
A lovely idea, it seems to me. If Easter Sunday brings good weather, I plan to be out walking in my Easter bonnet!
Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
The Way includes gifts. I am learning what I care about, what is important for me.
Be still and know that I am God.
What are the gifts of this time for you?
