Our Barred Owl has made several appearance in the past week. This beautiful bird hangs out on tree branches near our house - seemingly indifferent to everything happening around it. We've seen him (or her) sit there for up to 2 hours in the early evening - rarely moving - just the occasional turn of the head. Such a patient creature!
For my Palm Sunday verses, I chose these out of Matthew 20. Jesus once again foretold His disciples of His death and resurrection as they were about to travel to Jerusalem together for the last time. He told them exactly what was about to happen. Could He have said it any more clearly? It was common knowledge that Jesus had made these claims, hence the guards placed at the tomb. Yet, His disciples were still surprised when His tomb was empty!
All is well in the Keweenaw.
