Shepherds, Innkeepers and the Donkey
Posted by Mrs M Vizard
The innkeepers were sorry that they couldn't provide a room for Mary and Joseph, Fortunately, one of them had a stable. It wasn't ideal, but it was dry and warm. A humble beginning for the Lord, but his parents were very grateful for the innkeeper's kindness. Shepherds on the hillside, had a shock that night when a host of heavenly angels told them of the birth of the baby Jesus. They were overjoyed when they found the babe lying in the manger. The donkey was a good friend to Mary; supportive and resilient. Donkeys aren't just for Christmas!
