“Christmas comes when the bandana is empty, and the nativity is full of straws.”

 

A beautifully illustrated story of the Nativity.  He was just an ordinary donkey, but on his back he carried a miracle. He carried the Virgin Mary to Bethlehem on the night she gave birth. Along the way he dreamed he was carrying a city, a ship, a fountain, and a rose. He dreamed he was carrying a lady full of heaven--and he was.

For the smallest seedling on the tree farm, waiting and growing seem to take an eternity. As the seasons pass, the seedling observes the gifts that nature brings her - the sky, the wind, the birds and animals, and the sun and rain that help her grow.
