THE DONKEY.

May 25, 2018

Methinks I’m not as smart as a donkey.

 

  • Donkeys take their time.

  • Look where they are going.

  • Do not trip over the same stone twice.

  • Circle around pitfalls and ditches.

  • Avoid uneven terrain.

  • Finally, they listen to orders.

 

And then there’s me.

 

I tend to rush.

 

And leave cupboard doors open.

 

Especially the door where the dog food lives.

 

And time after time after time –

 

  • I rush to feed them.

  • Open the door.

  • Take out the food.

  • Leave the door open.

  • Feed them.

  • Door still open.

  • I turn, fast, and –

 

WHAM!

 

I hit my expensive OTC (over the counter) knee on the door.

 

One would think because it’s artificial it wouldn’t hurt.

 

Wrong.

 

It does.

 

A lot.

 

As I limp away I promise myself to be more careful next time.

 

I might even remember. A couple of times.

 

But sooner or later I’m going to do it again.!

 

That “something” we do because we are not paying attention.

 

Aren’t we fortunate that there’s something called -

 

“GRACE?”

 

And it’s ours for the asking?

 

But back to that humble donkey.

 

That carried our Lord into Jerusalem on his final triumphant ride.

 

  • He took his time.

  • He looked where he was going.

  • He avoided places where he could stumble.

  • He didn’t rush.

  • Finally, he listened to commands from the Lord.

 

And stepped on a bed of palm branches. Sharing the joy of being with the Lord.

 

I’m forthwith going to try to be more like a donkey.

 

Food for thought there.

 

Cyber hugs and blessings all.
