Sweet Scripture Sunday!!!

"Hosanna to the Son of David!"
" Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Hosanna in the Highest!"
when Jesus entered Jerusalem the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"
The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

Today is Palm Sunday, traditionally celebrated  in our churches the Sunday before Easter (The Resurrection).

How excited Jesus must have been as he entered Jerusalem
 when the people reacted with such excitement. 
 Only a few days later he would find the crowd would turn against him. 
 But on this day the people shouted, "Hosanna". 
Which expresses both prayer and praise!

Isn't it funny how people seem to follow along when something exciting happens. 
 It does not matter whether it be positive or negative......
It is about what the "crowd" is doing.
This scripture reads, "the whole city was stirred and asked, "who is this?"

I can just picture the people seeing the crowd gathering.
Hearing the shouting......
They come running up and join in...
not even realizing who it is...
or why he is there....
How sad......
The savior of the world has just arrived.
and the people missed it!

As we enter this Easter season let us not forget.....


Our savior, our Redeemer and our Friend!

He is everything His name claims him to be....

and because of him we are Joint heirs with the Kingdom of God!

Yes, we have reason to celebrate....
not just today......
But everyday!

Be Blessed!!!


Urgent Prayer Request:

To all my wonderful Sisters in Christ in Blog land.
Please pray for me as things are changing very quickly for us.
My position as Director of the Homeless Shelter
has been very time consuming
and straining.
So many needs.....
and so much to learn.

My husband is finishing up all his paperwork and tests for the Chaplaincy at the FCI in Manchester.
Pray all goes well. 
I appreciate your prayers!


  1. Thanks for the scripture!!!
    Will be praying for you and your husband. What is FCI?

  2. "Who is this Jesus?"..the big question and so hard to answer just in a sentence or even in an hour! Maybe that is why our own testimony is what we can share freely with everyone confidently.

  3. I understand. I, too have took a new job. It is a very hectic busy job. I will pray for you. I promise. Pray for me too.

  4. Praying for you and love your post this morning. Christ knew as he entered the city what was to come, and he went anyway. Just for us.
    Hugs- Tete

  5. Gave me chills. I have often wondered about that day. He knew He was facing death by torture, and knew who was going to betray Him. Betrayal is so hard to handle.Oh my. Prayers are being said for you both. Have you moved?

  6. Thanks for sharing this beautiful scripture. Praying for you and your husband and God's direction in your lives. Waiting is the hardest part.

  7. Such a good post, Patty, and a sad reminder of how human nature always wants to be with the "in" crowd. I've often wondered what I would have done and which way I would have gone if I were there.. . .
    I've thought a lot about your job, your Homeless Shelter, how it operates, your needs there, etc. I didn't want to bother you while you are in the midst of all these changes and learning your new role. But I think of you constantly, and praying. Will continute to pray, too. And inquiring minds would love to know. . . . what IS FCI????

  8. Beautiful post Patty. Will keep you both in our prayers. Have a Blessed day.

  9. Good morning Patty,

    I am so thankful this morning for my Savior!!!
    Praying for y'all this morning. Take care


  10. Another beautiful, meaningful post on your beautiful blog. I don't comment much, but I always enjoy being here.

    Happy Easter & blessings from Ohio...Kim<><
