Palm



I decided to post this picture to show off my palm in response to JM's wonderful shot of a palm lined beach in Portugal posted yesterday. This lonely palm tree pops out above the clutter of trees and shrubs below. As it happens this is a very timely post because today is Palm Sunday.

Reflection:
John 12:13-15 (New International Version)
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
"Hosanna!"
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the King of Israel!"
Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written,
"Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion;
see, your king is coming,
seated on a donkey's colt."[

  1. You know, I am not that enamoured of palms. They seem to be all over Sydney of late. However, they are prickly non-loveable plants. Hug a palm - I don't think so.
