During this Holy Time we are remembering the 9th Day of Ramadan for Muslims and the 40th Day of Lent for Christians. The 40th Day of Lent is also Palm Sunday for Christians to remember when Jesus entered the City as a King, loved by all, on an Ass, the same way his Mother Mary had arrived to Bethlehem for his birth.
Today is also National Siblings Day. I’m lucky enough to get along with all of my younger sisters, but wish they would set aside their differences and enjoy being together again.
Might as well have a Cinnamon Crescent and a coffee on National Cinnamon Crescent Day.
Actually, I think I’ll go kayaking at Kings Landing in Florida. A 2 hour guided tour with all equipment supplied through the crystal clear waters and wilderness of the Florida interior.
Palm Sunday is celebrated by Christians as the day that Christ rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and praises were sung to him by everyone. Palm branches were placed on the path to make the ride easier and songs of Hosannas were sung loudly by the crowds of worshippers. The celebrations would be short lived and within the week Christ would be crucified, only to rise from the dead to finish teaching his disciples before his final ascension to heaven, leaving with a promise that he would return.
The teachings of “love your neighbour as yourself” would linger on as today is also Neighbour Day. A kind gesture or word to celebrate the wonderful neighbours we have.
In a world where everything is in its place and a there is place for everything, weeds remind us of the uncontrollable and wild treasures. After all weeds are just plants growing somewhere we don’t want them to. So celebrate the determination of weeds on Weed Appreciation Day as you clear the garden for the approaching new growing season.
