The donkey Has become a symbol Of it's stubborn ways Not one of the brightest But yet it does not stray It keeps it's head centered and down And does not look side to side For it does not want to lose it's path It carried our saviour To where the ones God sent Him He would go pray It carries the cross On It's back everyday For it's embedded in it's coat Praise this donkey That we should learn from One of the foolish breeds Has shown us daily who we need To be pulled out of the weeds I will keep it's ways in my walk For then the Lord will Use my tongue to talk It pleases God this way To take the foolish The world can not see To be the one that Teaches the scholars What they have learned From mans wisdom Is not who He wants you to be If you want peace and to be free

Thanks all glory to God to give us another example to follow : ). This is how God would wish we could live, when the spirit at Pentacost came into them people thought they were drunk at 9 am,. This poem has had me laughing , my wife getting worried

Thanks all glory to God, when y'all pray today don't forget to thank your not a turkey, : ) Jesus probably felt like turkey on Thanksgiving on the run, but who knew if you eat His flesh then you will inherit life and drink from His cup

"It pleases God this way To take the foolish The world can not see"..... What a sublime thought. We must learn not to underrate anybody. Those who are foolish in the eyes of man can teach the world many things and are more precious and valued by God. Great poem. Into my FAVE.
