Today was Palm Sunday.
Growing up in a place with no palm trees, I never remembered this day until my Sunday School teacher taught our lesson about Jesus' triumphal entry.
Oh, but here?
We have palm trees.
And you cannot go far without seeing signs of the day!
In church parades...
What better time to point our children to the cross and to Christ!
Today we folded our palm leaves into crosses.
Crafts are a rarity in Sunday School here, so we had quite the time!
Yes, some children strapped them to their foreheads....but I figure that if it gets them thinking about the cross this week, that is a good thing!
