Well, this was the Lord working on me. Telling me to give it to Him, the only One who can heal broken hearts and restore relationships. So I knew there was only one thing for me to do: write a letter. A peace offering. 🙂 This letter expressed my feelings in a loving way; making it clear what my boundaries are.
Looking back, I remember a day that changed me forever. I came home from work one day and my sister Erika had a brand new cassette tape (before the days of CD’s ;)) of Michael W. Smith “Go West Young Man”. She asked me, “do you believe in Jesus?” I said, “sure I do.” She came back with, “I mean, do you have a personal relationship with him?”
I spent a lot of time searching for an image, and out of hundreds, no thousands, this one (from the Passion of Christ) just spoke to me so much.
“A woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.”
It’s here…Palm Sunday!
When I was little, one of the ways we celebrated Palm Sunday in Sunday school class was cutting out green construction paper palm leaves and waving them around shouting “Hosanna to the King of Kings!” I didn’t really understand what it all meant then but I knew that somehow I was praising Jesus and that it made Him happy.
