Donkey's End?

Life sometimes makes you feel like you're the either the donkey's patootie, or on top of it, and you're still not high enough to jump over that fence.
Or you see what might be ahead, but your vision is still unclear.
 And sometimes you just stand and wonder why.

Am I alone in this?

"Jesus answered, 'You don't understand now what I'm doing, but it will be clear enough to you later.'" John 13:7

That "later" could mean waiting until heaven. But I do know that I can trust Him to be just, faithful and full of grace in time of need.

Has God cleared a way for you lately?

Love that picture of your grandson, and that's usually me -- standing and wondering...!

Great post and so true. Love the pics with it.

Karen, if you ever need us to pray, please let us know. I care...your readers care.

We always the later to be sooner but His timing is always perfect and His wisdom we should not question. Great pics to illustrate! :O)

Nicely done, Karen. I like that perspective of the player through the fence.

Karen said...

Thanks Dave, I thought that was cute, too.

Kathy, of course I would think it's cute-it's my grandson.

NOTICE: blogger was off for a while last night and this am. I DID have 7 comments-now only 2. So those of you who left comments thank you. I read them, but hadn't had time to respond.

Parsley-you mentioned prayer. My son is having issues with his war injuries. Hard for a mom to take...

Karen, thanks for your comments on our loss. It was very tough. How did you entice the goat to stand on the donk's back? Or better yet, how did you get the donkey to stand still?

Oh karen, you continue to amaze me with your creativity and your photography skills. Another good post that touches us all. Love you Clella

Karen said...

Ian, you are most welcome. Ha, that ole goat, just jumped up without even asking and that donkey just stood there. :P

Lady Fi, thanks.

Clella, well, that second picture wasn't done on purpose-my camera kept picking up the fence. Sooo I decided to use it. :)
