     THE DONKEYS CROSS

 

     "Bring me the colt of a donkey" was the masters request

      A young donkey was brought to Jesus to carry him into Jerusalem

      A week later Jesus was ordered to be crucified

     The little donkey so loved the lord that he wanted to help him carry the cross

      But, alas he was pushed away

 

     The sad little donkey waited to say goodbye until nearly all had left

     As he turned to leave, the shadow of the cross fell across his back and shoulders

     And there it has remained, a tribute to the loyalty and the love of one of the   

     humblest of gods creatures
