Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday. IMO - the beginning of the most sacred week of the Christian religion.

No matter your beliefs or disbeliefs, if you look simply at the tradition, the meaning of this week is beautiful. It's full of hope and promise and love. It's a week that is based on forgiveness.

I remember my first Easter week in Mexico. Wow. There were parades in the street, everyone in the villages and towns were involved. Same in Costa Rica. They re-enacted the entrance of Christ on Palm Sunday. I'd never seen anything like it - and still haven't.

I watched the peoples faces. This wasn't about chocolate candy or eggs. A new dress or big dinner. This was about hope. Forgiveness. Love. Promise.

That is what I wish for you today. To know the hope of better things. The warmth of unconditional love. And the forgiveness that comes with that love.
