The Legend of the Robin

Last Thursday night, Bro. David Dryer was our speaker at the Friendship Night that was hosted by Newton Lodge #59. He concluded his talk with this little "legend"..the Legend of the Robin. I had never heard it before. I really enjoyed it and it gave me thoughts of spring. I want to share it with you. Hope you will enjoy and think thoughts of spring.

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 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.
