PALM SUNDAY and GOOD FRIDAY
Two *Processions* of a same Person but with two different *Responses.*
One was a triumphant *ENTRY* into the Jerusalem city; the other a painful *EXIT* outside the Jerusalem city.
In the first, the *DONKEY* carried Jesus; in the second Jesus carried the *CROSS.*_
In the first *HOSSANA* was the exclamation; in the second *CRUCIFY* was the cry._
In the first people held *BRANCHES* of the tree; in the second Jesus held *WOOD* of the tree
In the first the people's garments were *SPREAD* on the road; in the second Jesus' garments were *DIVIDED* among the four.
In the first the Disciples *ACCOMPANIED* Jesus; in the second the Disciples *FLED* from Jesus.
Life has *Sunshines* as well as *Dark nights.* *Rainbows* as well as *Thunder storms.*
Happiness is *TEMPORARY* Sadness is *TRANSITORY*
A Kite cannot all the time *FLY* above in the air, it has to *LIE* down to the ground.
Both *PALM Sunday* and *GOOD Friday* was needed to arrive at *EASTER Sunday.*
_May the Holy Week make us holy._
