When Kings came riding on a horse, they were exhibiting their power and bent on war but Kings would arrive on a donkey when they wanted to point out that they were coming in peace. The Palm branches symbolized victory and represented Eternal Life. When people wanted to remember something, they would mark their hands and fingers with the image they did not want to forget. Isaiah 49:16, "Behold, I have graven you upon the Palms of my hands..." Even with all JESUS knew HE was going to go through, HE never stopped thinking about us! Can we say the same about HIM when we face trials and tribulations? Praying that today GOD'S Abundant Grace gives us thoughtful moments. Maybe Palm Sunday will expand the depths of our understanding to include PALM "SON"DAY. AMEN.
