Palms: Victory, Triumph, Peace

When asked why, unlike other trees, 
the palm sways so, 
bowing ever so low, 
while softly murmuring,
the gentle palm tree answered,

"There is a heart right now praying for healing. 
My branches lay down low, welcoming Him in, 
and my branches sing choruses of alleluias." 
----G. Hill

Palms of Sundays

And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 
         ------Matthew 21: 8
The palm tree symbolizes victory, triumph, peace and eternal life. When you see the palm swaying and rustling in the breeze, a soul has welcome Him in.
They took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
      ------John 12:1
