Robin Red Breast...
A legend tells how the robin
got its red breast and why the
robin is a symbol of spring.
In flight to Calvary,
a robin noted that a thorn had
pierced Christ's forehead,
causing it to bleed.
The robin flew down and plucked
the thorn out. As it did,
Christ's blood stained the robin's chest.
Since then, Robins have been marked with
a splendid red breast as a reminder
that one of them was kind to the Lord.
The next time you see a robin
remember Jesus' gift of eternal life
to the world.
Wishing you a
that's full of
hope for tomorrow.
