The Legend Of The First Robin.

The Legend Of The First Robin

One day, long ago, a little bird in Galilee saw a large crowd gathered around a Man carrying a heavy wooden cross.

On Man's head was a crown made from a thorn branch. The thorns were long and sharp.

The little bird saw that the thorns were hurting the Man. It wanted to help Him, so it flew down and took the longest, sharpest thorn in its tiny beak.

The bird tugged and pulled until the thorn snapped from the branch.

Then a strange thing happened. A drop of blood fell onto the bird's breast, staining it bright red.
The stain never went away.

And so today the robin proudly wears a red breast, because it helped a Man named Jesus.

May God bless you today,

And keep you all year through.

May God give you all the faith it takes,

To make your dreams come true.

May His love and wisdom always help,

To guide you on your way.

May His light shine down upon you now,
To bless your every day. :wink: :)




Just a note to say hello
Before I start my day
Couldn't help but drop a line
To my friend so far away
As I sip my fresh brewed coffee
Thoughts of you have crossed my mind
I'm sending morning greetings
And hope your day is fine
Today is filled with sunshine
Like the friendship we two share
My day will be just dandy
I'll pretend that I am there
I have to go now, my friend
Have lots to do today
Just wanted to say good morning
In this e-mail sent your way. :)

Have A Beautiful Day!!! :wink: :)
Cheers Joe.

I had just been watching a robin feeding in my garden Joe, when I read your post. One of my favourite birds. The sentiments are very moving and much appreciated. Thanks Joe
