April is a Busy Month. In fact, as I was trying to form a schedule it was filled with obligations to friends, family, church, and work with hardly any room to breathe. I don’t know if you have ever been in a busy season. It's all the things that you have said yes to but sometimes it feels overwhelming. Have you ever been excited about a party or an event? You spend all this time preparing and getting everything set up but by the time it happens you are tired, or in a bad mood. The day passes you by and you don’t enjoy it.
In the film 500 days of Summer. The film chronicles various days within a young couple's doomed relationship. There is a scene in the movie in which the guy is invited to a party with the girl and this will be his chance to win her back. All of the sudden the movie goes from split-screen and there is one side with expectation and the other is reality. On the expectation side, he is charming and is able to regain the affections of his love but on the other side, in reality, she barely notices he is there and is off in the corner.
Palm Sunday is a Story of Expectation vs. Reality...
