and the wonderful welcome he received as he entered the city of Jerusalem.
It was just like a parade!
Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
Wow, this was a big parade – and Jesus deserved it. He had traveled all over Israel helping people, doing miracles, and telling them about God’s love. Now he was coming to the capitol, the most important city. This was something the Bible had been promising for hundreds of years. It was all finally coming together, and the people were so excited to celebrate – like they had just won the super bowl!
But there was a problem: Jesus wasn’t rich like a normal king. He didn’t have a big fancy horse or a big fancy army to go with him in this parade. Did you know how Jesus fixed that problem?
Well, today’s story tells us!
Hurry on over to Oma’s Reading Room to discover the important way Jesus was fulfilling prophecy & why the people were so excited to see him!
Until next time …

her hugs and her blessings
I do hope you’ll catch them and
hold them real tight!

Small Pine hoped to maintain its perfect form and be selected by the Queen as her Christmas tree. But as the warm-hearted little tree gave shelter to rabbits, birds, and deer in the forest, its branches became damaged. All the other trees in the evergreen forest laughed at Small Pine’s kindness and said Small Pine would never be chosen by the Queen now.
