It was Palm Sunday but little Johnny was feeling sick so he stayed at home with a babysitter while the rest of his family went to church. When the family got home, they were all carrying palm fronds.
“What are they?”, asked little Johnny curiously.
His dad explained, “They’re called palm fronds. People held them above Jesus’ head as he walked by them.”
“Well that’s just my luck,” said little Johnny. “The one Sunday you don’t make me go to church and Jesus shows up.”
