Happy Palm Sunday!

God Bless my husband!  I thought this was an appropriate post for Palm Sunday.  My beloved groom stopped at the grocery store on his way home from work to pick up a few things.  When he was in the check-out aisle, he noticed this DVD.  He knows that I watch this show with our girls.  Bless his heart.  He remembered and bought it for them - actually all of us because we can all use some guidance every now and then, am I right?  He also noticed that it was printed in the USA and, in that respect, bought it for me.

The DVD is for a show called Monster Truck Adventures.  It's a show about {you guessed it} Monster Trucks, using Bible verses to teach lessons.  At the end of each show, a Bible verse is quoted and then the narrator explains how the episode ties in with that particular verse.  That's my favorite part.  After the show ends, we talk about the episode and reinforce the lesson that was learned.  I love the fact that one of the episodes that has stuck with Lyla is the one that teaches to honor her mother and father.  {FYI: The episodes also air on a channel called TBN - Trinity Broadcasting Network.  I am not sure if it is available in all areas, so check your local listings if you are interested.}  In the interest of full disclosure, the DVD cover was printed in the USA.  The actual cartoon is produced in Canada.  Sorry.

In honor of Palm Sunday, I leave you with some excerpts of today's readings from the Bible (a little appropriate if you are a blogger, I noticed too):
Isaiah 50:4 "The Sovereign Lord has taught me what to say, so that I can strengthen the weary.  Every morning he makes me eager to hear what he is going to teach me."
Luke 19:39-40 " 'Teacher,' they said [to Jesus], 'command your disciples to be quiet!' "  Jesus answered, 'I tell you that if they keep quiet, the stones themselves will start shouting.' "

Have a great day!  Go hug your babies!

Tell me your thoughts!
