Mary was tired. She had been walking for a long time and she was quickly losing steam.

"How much longer until we're there?" she asked Jesus.

"It is a long walk," He told her.

She had to hold in her tears because her feet were aching. He quickly saw that. He stopped the donkey and immediately got off.

"Here," He said, "Get on"

"Thank you," she told Him gratefully

"My pleasure," He said smiling

He had no idea what that would mean soon enough. It would give Him the courage to do what He needed to do. She was the one on the donkey so she was assumed to be the one spoken of. He was frightened but He knew one thing. His love for her outweighed His fear. Love would prevail for as His Father had taught Him love always prevails.
