A Christmas Legend

The Legend of the Christmas Donkey


Before Baby Jesus was born, his mother, Mary, and her husband, Joseph, had to travel through the countryside to the town of Bethlehem. Their trip took many days. They traveled up and down steep hills.

To make things easier for Mary, an ordinary donkey carried her on his back and Joseph led the way.

"A donkey, just like me?" asked the donkey.
"Yes, a donkey just like you," said the cow.

Finally, Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem. But there was nowhere for them to sleep. They had to go to a stable and sleep with the animals.

The donkey carried Mary safely to that stable.

So it was an ordinary donkey who gave Baby Jesus a unique gift, even before he was born, by carrying Mary safely to Bethlehem.
Amen.

A very merry Christmas to all our furrends!!!
