{Holy Week}

This is a few days late

but totally worth sharing!

Sunday was Palm Sunday.

One {of many} favorite Sundays

As a little girl

receiving a palm branch at church was


What was cooler was when I was

able to fold it into a cross

All. By. Myself.

This year something new hit me.


A donkey.

Our King road into Jerusalem

on a donkey?!

But if you look close

a donkey is not just a donkey.

Donkeys Cross 004 

A donkey wears a cross.

A symbol of where

our King was headed.

to the cross.

to save us.

to bare our sins.

so that we would be forgiven.

Legend of the Donkey's Cross

" Bring me the colt of a donkey,"
was the Master's request.

A young donkey was brought to Jesus
to carry Him into Jerusalem.

A week later Jesus was ordered
to be crucified.

The little donkey so loved the Lord
that he wanted to help Him carry the cross.

But, alas, he was pushed away.

The sad little donkey waited to say
goodbye until nearly all had left.

As he turned to leave, the shadow of
the cross fell upon the
back and shoulders of
the little donkey.

And there it has remained,
a tribute to the loyalty
and love of the humblest of
Gods creatures.

Happy Holy Week
