Points to Ponder:

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a
well. The animal cried piteously for hours as
the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the
well needed to be filled in anyway;
it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and
help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
to shovel dirt into the well. At first the
donkey realized what was happening and cried
horribly, then to everyone's amazement he
quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
looked down the well. He was astonished at what
he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
back, the donkey shook it off and took a step up.

Before long, the donkey stepped up over the edge of
the well and trotted off.

Life is going to shovel dirt on you - all kinds of dirt.
The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off
and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone.
We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping -
not giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

The donkey later bit the frmer who had tried
to bury him. The gash from the bite became infected
and the farmer died in agony from septic shock.
