Mosiac Monday...Putting up our Cross

Happy Mosaic Monday to you! This is my third Mosaic picture that I've made now and I'm still loving it! I have to thank, Mary, at Little Red House! Also, if you would be so kind to visit Mary she'd love to have you, and while you're there to look at all the other mosaic pictures our friends here in Blogland have made, there's some gorgeous ones to for you to see!
I thought it would be nice if I made a Mosaic of us putting up our Cross at my Church on the 15th of April 2006, I remember it as if it were yesterday! It was a amazing day, a awesome feeling and something that I'll never forget in my lifetime!
If you want to read the other post that I had back on Monday, July 27, 2009 and see more pictures, here's the link:
Putting up our Cross



Today is Palm Sunday. It's a Christian moveable feast which always falls on the Sunday before Easter Sunday. It is the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem in the days before his Passion. It is also called Passion Sunday or Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion.
In many Christian Churches, Palm Sunday is marked by the distribution of palm leaves (often tied into crosses after receiving them) to the assembled worshipers that Sunday. The palm branch was a symbol of triumph and of victory, in Jewish tradition, and is treated in other parts of the Bible as such (e.g. Leviticus 23:40 and Revelation 7:9). Because of this, the crowd greeted Jesus by waving palms and carpeting His path with palms has given the Christian festival its name.
Here's a picture of a couple of my palms that I had gotten a few years ago and tied into Crosses.


Thanks so much for stopping in today, I hope that you have a very Happy Easter and a wonderful new Spring!
Hugs...

Palm Sunday tells us that … it is the cross that is the true tree of life.

Hi, Bobbi -- thank you for visiting my blog. I LOVE your mosaic -- it is such a perfect expression of faith. I can't figure out how to make those palm crosses. Everytime I try, it just doesn't look right. Your photo of yours is lovely.

Silke said...

Dear Bobbi, that is such a gorgeous mosaic! I remember reading your post about the cross raising some time ago...

One year, when I was a young girl, I spent Palm Sunday with my family in a small village in southern France. Everyone brought huge palm leaves to church and it left a huge impression on me.

And a few years ago, Daniel and I spent Palm Sunday and Holy Week in Oaxaca, Mexico, where people were making great art from the palm fronds once the service was over. We still have one such piece of art hanging on our wall. Actually, I've never experienced Easter like I did there - it was a week of bringing the Easter story to life!

Wishing you a Happy Monday!! Love, Silke
