More Advent in Lent

P1250015

I’ve long though that Palm Sunday has an Advent kind of feeling to it. The hymn “Prepare the Royal Highway” is a perfect example of this–an Advent hymn that works for Palm Sunday. Today’s Palm Sunday has an even more Advent-y feeling, though, due to the snowstorm we’re getting. It especially seems appropriate as today is the Eve of the Annunciation of Our Lord. Somehow, the snow seems fitting, even if it is Palm Sunday and the end of March. The white of the snow serves as a good reminder not only of Christ’s sinlessness, but also of both Christ’s incarnation and the atonement He accomplished.
