Biblical animals

As the donkey plays a key part in this month’s Easter story, Jackie Macadam focuses on the stories of the animals in the Bible.

If you can start the day without caff eine,

if you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

if you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

if you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

if you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

if you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

if you can conquer tension without medical help

if you can relax without alcohol,

if you can sleep without the aid of drugs, then you are probably… the Family Dog!
