Today is Good Friday, the day that Christians remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. We have several accounts of the day, and days leading up to it, in the Bible. Last Sunday was Palm Sunday, the day when Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. Did you know that almost all donkeys have a cross on their backs? According to Lusco Farms dot org, the legend goes, that the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday refused to leave his side. The donkey could not stand the sight of Jesus on the cross so the donkey turned away from the crucifixion but could not bring himself to leave. As the sun came across the sky the shadow of the cross fell upon the shoulders and back of the donkey branding his coat. True to a donkey’s spirit once they befriend you, the are yours for life. There have been cases when a donkey loses a life- long mate they will often stand in the spot where the other donkey died for hours at a time.
