The Royal Ass
Upon further reflection after changing the title of my blog to "Golden Ass", thanks to the Redemption from our Assdom by Christ's Grace for our assdom, I came to find the name to be ever more appropriate - in so many ways - seeing that the "Ass" theme can be taken from many different angles.
"As they were loosening the colt [the ass], the owners said thereof said unto them [the disciples of Jesus - the model "stubborn asses"], Why loose ye the colt [the ass]? And they said, The Lord hath need of him. And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus [He of Anti-Assdom] theron. And as he went, the spread their clothes in the way. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King [the Royal King of Anti-Assdom] that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees [model Ass Holes] from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would cry out. And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things that make for peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes [due to your Royal Assdom]." - Luke 19: 33-42.
For an especially comedic story in this context of the analogy to My Royal Assdom on what it's like tyring to move a mule and at the same time having to rely on one for your own life, see the following web site: http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1058/is_34_118/ai_81221888
"...entrusting our days to the stubborn, plodding mules of duty that bear us forward--or is it the promise of our guide?--'I know this path. I have gone before you. Just listen to me. You'll make it.' Lift your eyes from footsteps in the dust to see the sure advance of a river opening the earth's hard crust, this miracle of upheaval and realignments, this magnificat of shifted faultlines--a stone testimony that nothing here is set in stone." An appropriate verse might be the request that God "Turn my heart of stone to a heart of flesh." Which could possibly be interpreted as, "May my Royal Assdom destined for Fate and Law (both the ultimate in stubborn asses) turn to face foward into God's Kingdom of Grace and Mercy" :)
