I guess I should say pansies and TULIPS inside. It's Saturday and snowing like crazy. Inside by the window - a lovely view and a place to have a cup of tea! Sit here and relax and I will pour our cups of tea! By the way, this is really a coffee pot but we don't care - we can have tea in it too!
This weekend is Palm Sunday - a time to celebrate and remember! We remember that the Gospels (the 1st 4 books of the New Testament) tell us that Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on a donkey and the people waved their palms shouting Hosanna - Hosanna. This had been prophesied in the Old Testament. (Zechariah 9:9) His time was drawing near....the cross was awaiting him. God's plan for the world was that He "so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life".
Late note: The coffee set below was sold at my shop:
On a Hill far way stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross
where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.
The Old Rugged Cross
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross.....
And exchange it someday for a crown.
