Well, I'll be a Spotted Donkey's ......

This is not yet a painting, but I couldn't resist posting this photo I took today. My neighbor's spotted donkey had a foal recently and this little filly is the result - isn't she adorable!? Look for her in a future painting...
On this Good Friday, I am reminded of the events of last weekend - Palm Sunday - when our Lord rode through a welcoming throng of people, humbly on an ass - not as a warrior king, but as a gentle man offering something far more valuable than release from the tyranny of Rome. Instead he offered eternal life and peace and joy by his side. And all he asked in return was to believe in him - and have faith that the advice he offered for every aspect of our day-to-day lives was worth following.
Try it - you just may like it.
Matthew 21:5
“Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”
