Happy Easter! Much like Christmas, Easter also has it's share of animal participants and stories. One of my favorite Easter stories is about how the donkey got a cross across his back. There are many different versions of this story. The donkey colt which carried Jesus through the city on Palm Sunday stayed as close to his Master as he could, wishing to ease His burden along the road to the cross. He was not able to carry the burden but he did loyally stay by his Master, and as he stood by the cross he was unable to look at the shadow of it fell across his back, and the reminder of his loyalty stayed on amongst all of his decendents. There are a number of wise and brave donkey's in the Bible, but this one is really special to me.
