Easter Week- Palm Sunday

"Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion, shout, O daughter of Jerusalem, behold thy King cometh unto thee; and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt, the foul of an ass."
Zechariah 9:9



As prophesied Jesus entered the city to the tumult of praising. His pathway was strewn with clothing and palm branches. Some pharisees urges him to rebuke the outcry of his disciples but he answered them by saying that if he made them hold their peace even the stones would begin to cry out praise. Many would realize much later how the prophecies of the Old Testament were fulfilled that day. 
   Jesus knew his days were numbered and he urged his disciples to believe in the light while the light was still among them that they would be called children of light.


Believing, receiving, be open
To the truth which makes you 
Loving, and caring, and feeling,
That ye may be his child.

The savior said, "I am the light",
Come, follow me, just reach for my hand.
Your heavy burdens I will share,
My arms enfold you.

Believing, Receiving, Be Open
To the truth which makes you 
Loving, and caring, and feeling,
That ye may be his child.

His light illuminates the path
Warms every heart, each flickering shadow.
Go forth in faith, remove all doubt,
His arms enfold you.

Believing, receiving, be open
To the truth which makes you 
Loving, and caring, and feeling,
That ye may be the children of light.

Words to a song I wrote decades ago as a family motto. To be wholehearted has been a desire of mine for a long time. It seems, sometimes, to be just outside of reach but I do want to be a child of light so that the salvation Jesus brings is mine.
