A timeless story!
Like all great stories, mine will be remembered forever. Let me start by telling you that I’m a donkey. I’m also going to tell you about the most important event in my life . . . the most important event in history. One morning I was inside the barn, eating an ordinary breakfast in my ordinary stall.
But there was something about this morning that made it seem very fateful, although I knew that whatever was coming was nothing to be afraid of.
At the time, I did not know what was coming, or where it was coming from. But I could sense the presence of something much more powerful, and a lot bigger than you or me. But I just kept my focus on the hay that the barn keeper fed me each and every morning.
