Flash, the Donkey ~ What a Stray Burro Taught Me About Life, Faith and Second Chances
My Book in Progress.
Worthless. Couldn't get five dollars for him. Nobody wants a jackass. That's how the county sheriff described the stray donkey who showed up at our doorstep one spring night in Texas. But the sheriff could not have been more mistaken.
What happens when you take a family that's awash in activities and the failed pursuit of the American dream, and drop an obstinate, homeless donkey into the middle of it? You get charming antics, captivating life lessons, and the reminder that God delights in using the most unlikely and "worthless" characters in extraordinary ways.
Flash, The Donkey is the story of a family (mine) whose life was irrevocably changed when a shabby burro came to stay. Dogged by failure, deep insecurities and challenging circumstances, we desperately needed a sign that God still cared about us. But the last thing we expected was for this rescue animal to be the tool He would use to alter our mindsets and bring us new successes. Through the ten "Donkey Principles" in this funny and touching memoir, readers will be inspired to see their ordinary lives in a fresh way, and discover the beauty and joy already around them.
