Another legend

Hello again.  It has been a busy week in the workshop.  Christmas Village was fun and we met a lot of great people.  Some of our new friends have interesting blogs themselves.  You never know what you will find out about someone.  "Steve"  promised some pictures of Nick when he gives him to his wife.  I can't wait to see his new home.  I'm new to this blogging thing and sometimes I feel like Doogie Howser.  I guess you have to be old enough to to remember that show and his daily journal entries.  I am finding out a lot about other Christmas traditions and I thought you would enjoy this one.  Keep in touch.

The Legend of the Donkey's Bray

After hiding in Egypt for some years, Joseph decided to move his family back to Nazareth. During the night they camped along the side of the road. One night while they slept, their donkey heard the soldiers' horses coming from afar. Afraid that the soldiers were coming to kill Jesus, the donkey neighed to wake Joseph. He neighed and neighed, again and again, but his voice was just too soft to wake the sleepers. Finally, as the soldiers approached, the donkey prayed for a loud voice to wake the family. When he neighed again, he was rewarded with the loud bray such as donkeys have had ever since.
