Melancholy Donkey

This is an edited post from my "other blog"...

I've been acting like a pitiful ol' eeyore this week... "nobody loves me, nobody knows i'm alive"??!!
I have written on this topic last summer & seems I did not learn the last go 'round?!
Have you seen the description for Eeyore lately? Well here let me share...

"Eeyore is everyone's favorite delightfully dismal donkey.
But Eeyore doesn't see himself as gloomy -- he just has low expectations.
He expects nothing from anybody, so whenever his friends do come to his aid his expectations of the worst are overthrown, and he is sincerely grateful.
Eeyore's tiny bright pink bow on his tail, the one hint of color against his gray, is a perfect symbol of the kernel of joy that occasionally surfaces in Eeyore.
Though he may pretend he's helping because there's nothing better to do -- make no mistake, Eeyore is always there for his friends.
Debut: 1966 - Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree
Role: Melancholy stuffed donkey
Hobbies: Constantly losing his tail, moping about
Favorite Phrase: "It's not much of a tail, but I'm sort of attached to it."
Note of Interest:
The design of Eeyore has remained faithful to the original book version.

Which brings me to us (meaning me & you). Are we remaining faithful to who God originally created us to be? Are we choosing to walk with Him or are we whining/crying? Are we allowing that one, bright pink bow (faith) to shine for everyone to see?
I say "we" because being in my melancholy donkey state I am thinking I'm not the only one ; )
God did not create me to be an Eyeore he created me to be a Tigger! God called me to a life of joy. He wants me to choose to see life in a "Bouncy Tigger" outlook.
Wooo-Hooo-Hoooo! Did ya happen to catch the Disney movie today?

God will lead me when I get out of His way! I'm due for another red knee, legs numb, on my face session. Didn't I just have one of those the other day?! You'd think I'd learn to trust my Father by now. I love the Lord & know, that I know, He is my perfecter, redeemer, Father, my all in all!

A - Thank you for encouraging me in my walk & in my life! YOU are a blessing to me. You are a gift from God & I thank Him for you!!! (And thanks for not letting me stay a melancholy, dismal donkey today!!!)

So, have ya checked out my precious baby or her pink polka dot dedication bow... My Grandma made that Dedication gown for Ju-Ju B. It was a bittersweet day knowing that the beautiful gown will now be retired until my grand babies are ready to be Dedicated to Jesus. Oh how I can't wait for that day!!!

And it's now a bittersweet pic as my precious, sweet friend & family are moving away in two weeks. I think this is causing some of my "donkey" moments lately. So now I'm budgeting fuel costs to get to her new home & back...ugh??!! I mean...Woo-Hoo-Hoo!!!


  1. I'm sad Missy is moving away. I know you will miss having her here.

    Great post! :)

  2. Jen the wonderful thing that sets you & Eeore apart is that he didn't have faith to slay that gloomy dark cloud! I just love seeing what God is doing in you! Here's to red balloons!

  3. I have always seen you as a Tigger :) I know it's hard when people close to us move. But..I remember your blog about change changing me... it really blessed me when I first moved here and helped me to realize my moving here was His plan and purpose so I could become closer to Him.... God has great things in store for you and Missy!!! Love ya!!
