The Legend Of The First Robin 

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