our Lenten Journey Day Thirty-Four

Did you know that a donkey was once awarded a medal of honor for bravery in Australia? Read about (duffy) Murphy the Australian Army donkey who served courageously in the Battle of Gallipoli who tirelessly carried wounded soldiers from battlefront to the beach hospital. What other donkeys have courageously carried and served. Meditate on Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. Focus on the simplicity and courageous faithfulness of this little animal.
