“Bring me the colt of a donkey”

was the masters request. 


A young donkey was brought to Jesus

 to carry him to 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.

All donkeys have the sign of the cross, depending on the colour of their coat, some are easier to see than others.
