A lowly donkey carried Mary, and her unborn babe to the little town of Bethlehem. In a manger, the world received the greatest gift, the baby Jesus, the Light of the World.
Today Elliot and I paid a visit to our favorite Jerusalem donkey at the orchid farm. To our delight, his territory had greatly expanded and he stood in a green pasture, with plenty of grass to eat. Allahambra's ears perked at the sign of carrots, a favorite treat.
He could hardly finish chewing one carrot stick, when he eagerly looked up for more with his mouth full.
Have you ever seen a more loving face?
Turns out, he has a fan club. We had hardly said our goodbyes, when another couple approached with a bag of carrots, calling out his name.
Donkey brings a message to be wise, but humble in a new opportunity. People are noticing you, so you do not need to promote yourself.
And, so he was.
May your holidays be filled with joy, peace, family, and good friends. And, remember to invite your angels to join you in your festivities during this holy season.
