*The Donkey Cross*



"Bring me the colt of a donkey,"

Was the Master's 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 upon the back and

shoulders of the little donkey.


And there it has remained,

a tribute to the loyalty

and love of the humblest of

God's creatures.


Permission to display this was granted courteously from ROZEBUD Creations.
