Today is Palm Sunday, What does it mean to You?

Today is Palm Sunday and I am on my way to church.
I sing in the choir.  There are two reasons I sing in the choir.
The first being that I love to sing and I love the church.
The second being that I tend to procrastinate and if I didn’t
have to be in church, I probably wouldn’t be as attentive as I
am singing.

Back to Palm Sunday.
I was thinking this morning about what is so important for me to focus on this day.
I realized that this is the beginning of the journey for Jesus as he is glorified and welcomed by people who in less than one weeks time, will condemn Him to death.

This is typical of people today.  One day, someone is on your side, helping you and believing in you.  Then as soon as their is a rumor or false truth said, how quickly people turn their backs.  How quickly people lose faith and how quickly they become sheep.  They follow the crowd and although they know it is wrong, they follow and go against what they know is the truth.

I see this in school with my 13 year old.  She has a “best friend”. This best friend is always giving her a hard time.  Questioning her decisions and is quick to believe anything someone else says about my daughter.  My daughter on the other hand says she is tired of the drama and doesn’t want any part of it.  That makes me proud.

Drama.  What a human defect.
Drama is how the evil one inserts himself into our lives.
Taking over our better judgement.
It is like a drug.  And at 12 or 13, is when it starts.

So today I am going to try to practice as much humility as possible.
Not letting the drama to creep in, avoiding those who do not build me or my family up, and know that Jesus is beginning His walk to death for me.

About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
