Kiddo is doing a 'diary' this year of the Resurrection Eggs. If you are not familiar they are plastic eggs filled with one part of the Easter Story. He is only on day 'two' (of twelve) but thought I'd at least post them out as we get them done. The first entry is written by the disciples that went to get the donkey for Jesus. He wrote "unknown" because we could not find which disciples went to fetch the donkey. I was using these as part of our school work to improve punctuation, capitalization and grammar but I've decided to let that slide in order to let the story be told. (If you are here from the "40 Days of Seeking Him," stop back in over the next weeks if you are interested in hearing how the story all turns out.)
diary of ****(unknown)(the donkey)
Dear diary, jesus sent us on a mission to get a donkey. Seriously, he should get one of those horses, like the roman guys do! Ok, so we went to get the donkey. A angry house owner saw us taking the donkey, and I think we would have had gone to the hospital had it not been for my buddy disciple telling him jesus sent us. He calmed down instantly! The donkey is kinda scratchy, so we went to get some cloaks for jesus’s comfort. He is the one and only, after all! You should have seen the crowd! They were so loyal! They waved palm branches and placed branches and cloaks on the ground! However, the oh-so prideful Pharisees did not celebrate. I’d say more if I could, but jesus is flipping tables in the temple and attempting to whip people, and I cant miss action like that.
