Last week I mentioned the coyote chorus that is sung nightly in the desert. They seem to be rejoicing that the pack is back together again. There is another animal that can be heard each night, and that’s the wild donkeys. The Jacks and Jennies are a complaining bunch, for those sad eyed creatures lack the ability to travel from point A to point B at night without letting everyone know what their complaints are. Throughout the desert night their hee-hawing echoes can be heard.
I talk with many people in the park across from my home and often I’m asked, “Do you ever see the donkeys?” I reply, “Yes, all the time.” They sound surprised at that response, for most of them have never seen or heard one. I tell them “Those beautiful creatures are there, you just have to look and listen for them.”
It’s the same with God. People say they have lived on this planet for years and have never seen or heard from God. My reply is the same, “I see Him and hear his echoes all the time. You just have to look and listen for Him.”
