Daily Light #12 ~ Palm Sunday

“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings.  Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.” Proverbs 4:20-22, New King James Version

🌴🌴🌴

This took place to fulfill the prophecy that said, “Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.’”… They brought the donkey and the colt to him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat on it… Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road ahead of him, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.  Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting, “Praise God for the Son of David! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the LORD! Praise God in highest heaven!” Matthew 21:4-9 New Living Translation

Bachelor’s Day is an Irish tradition on Leap Day allowing women to initiate dances and propose marriage.[1] If the proposal was refused the man was expected to buy the woman a silk gown or, by the mid-20th century, a fur coat.[1][2] The tradition is supposed to originate from a deal that Saint Bridget struck with Saint Patrick.[3][4]

In the United Kingdom, a woman was allowed to propose marriage on Leap Day[5] and if refused the man was obliged to buy her new gloves on Easter Day. In some areas a woman could propose for the entire leap year.[1]
