During afternoon snack, Abishai began asking me questions about our Palm Sunday display.  He wanted to know what the people were doing.  So I told him the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem, of how they laid their coats and palm branches on the road in front of Him, calling "Hosanna!" as he rode in on a colt.  Well, Abishai liked that and started singing, "Hosanna, Hosanna!"  Since he was so interested, I pulled out the bible and read him the actual passage, pointing to the picture on our bulletin board as I read.  Then I wrote Mark 11:9 on our chalk board so we could remember the words spoken so long ago.  To celebrate, we walked around the house waving our branches while listening to 'Hosanna in the Highest' pumped up on our iPod speaker.

 Mark 11:8-10  "And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields.  And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!  Hosanna in the highest!" Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
