When Jesus, Mary and Joseph were going to Egypt Mary wanted a pin to pin a cloth around Jesus. They could not find any until they came to a forge where a blacksmith was working, Mary asked him for a pin but he said that he had none. Then Mary said that she would bless him. Then the smith got a piece of copper and made a pin for Mary. The Jesus Mary and Joseph continued their journey to Egypt.
