It's a Stone Project, For Crying out Loud!

HAPPY PALM SUNDAY




As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, 'Why are you doing this?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.'"
They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?" They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,
"Hosanna!"
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!"
"Hosanna in the highest!" Mark 11:1-10

The whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen. Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"
"I tell you, " he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." Luke 19:37-40


And have a blessed Holy Week,
Midge

i couldnt find your email on your blog, so I will just tell you here. I got your comment on my laundry room post, how you saw my post and then helped your friend build risers for hers - that is so very inspiring. I am so happy that you would help someone in need like that, and i am glad my post came at a perfect time - and i LOVE a girl that knows how to use those power tools!!


You are an awesome lady - so very thoughtful, and you have some pretty cool "junk" - i am very jealous of some of that stuff!!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog, have an great weekend, its almost here yipee!!!!
