I have always ( please note ‘all ways’ ) hated the global language of ‘all and every and never.’ Today, this day, after multiple silences, betrayals, rejections and overlooks, I embrace their, these, touches, these words. I embrace because all of these global negative words, even the seemingly positive ones ( I would never hurt you like … I will always be there for you ) have the inescapable promise of disappointment and overlooking, of unseeing. Yet, Jesus promises—

Revelation 7:9 ‘After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,…’

Palm Sunday is now is everyday. A welcoming; an embracing…. a loving.

Jesus here promises that all will come; all will stand in love; all will be as one. For this to happen,

He will heal every wound

Kiss away all resentments and self pities

Gently salve all physical brokenness

He will wipe away all, every, all tears

He is the one and only, the all in all, who will always embrace and love.

Jesus is all, my all, yours. He is for, with, every one.

He heals in love.

All.
