The Palm and the Passion

Palm Sunday took me to this picture that I took at Mepkin Abbey:

It made me think about how the palms can obscure Jesus and his mission:

And of course, from there I wondered about our own lives.  What keeps us from realizing our lives' true purposes?  Is it temporary, like palm branches?  Or something more difficult, like a slab of marble?

Maybe we just need to turn around, to get a different perspective, to get a peek behind the palms.
