The Colt & the King

On an extraordinary spring morning, a young colt stood waiting at the village gate. His gray coat trembled and his neck was tight with fear. But when the king arrived, the colt grew calm, filled with wonder and happiness.

Here is a tender account of Palm Sunday, narrated by the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem.
