Meet the Family
Two years before we actually moved, we began dreaming outloud of things we’d love to have. For me, one of those things was a donkey.
Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, Ephesians 3:20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Well when we did move, God said yes to that request and then some!! We inherited 4 donkeys with our farm. We are slowly making friends and building trust with them. It took a couple weeks and some courage for one of the two jacks to approach us. We had waited and waited, holding treats through the fence. We call them Momo and Vinnie the Red.
Momo has black stripes across his legs. Vinnie’s ears and mane are very red. The other two are their mamas. Sophia, Vin’s mama, is a very light gray. Momo’s mama, we’ve named Julia. She does not have black stripes on her legs, which makes our kids think Momo’s dad is a zebra. Boy, do they want to get a zebra! We told them to pray about it. Maybe God has that in His plan? We will have to wait and see.
