Legend of the Donkey

I was getting my ornaments out to put on my tree, and I pulled out the blown glass donkey I got a few years ago. It came with a little story.. 

"Legend tells us the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday followed Him to Calvary. Appalled by the sight of Jesus on the cross, the donkey turned away but could not leave. It is said that the shadow of the cross fell upon the shoulders and back of the donkey. A cross marking found on many donkeys today remains a testimony of the love and devotion of a humble, little donkey."

I found a bunch of donkey things at!

Great blog. Our little pomeranian puppy has the mediterian cross on her back. Our cousin has donkeys with it on their backs also. They are very good animals and also gentle.

I'd LOVE to have a miniature donkey! Minion would too! (or maybe not..)
