Living On Donkey Time

29 Jul

Howdy,

Seems life is so darn busy and everyone is in such a hurry I find myself thinking “Just one moment please” while talking to people.  Here at the Donkey Whisperer Farm we have one Mammoth donkey, one mini donkey, one horse, three dogs and two cats.  Donkeys are on “Donkey Time”, they live in their moment and move at their speed and never ever get rushed.  I make a point to try to live like the donkeys as life is precious and fragile and there is no need to get all worked up in traffic, a slow waiter, resolving medical billing, or just coordinating the repair of one of our home appliances.  Whenever I start to feel anxious I stop and think to myself “I am on donkey time”, kinda like living in Hawaii life is slow and wonderful.

When I feel my neck get tight and my heart starting to race I stop and pray ask GOD to help me and think about Donkey Time as I want to stay on donkey time the rest of my life.  Getting upset, worrying, crying, just creates a headache for me and when my body is finished with this reaction nothing has changed.  When I stay in faith with GOD and trust GOD is working to fix all the things gone astray and not only fix them but bring us out in favor in a better place than where we started every wrinkle in my face is wiped away.  My horse is learning to be more calm but she is a horse and a horse with the same personality as me AAA, living with her big step brother the mammoth donkey keeps her calm.   Several times during the winter months we have seventy mile hour winds on our farm, trees snap, branches fly and our big Mammoth donkey lays down in the middle of the storm and eats the tree limbs like they are treats from heaven.  I am trying to use this scenario for me when life is difficult and things don’t seem to be going right this is the time I must sit down and pray and wait for GOD.

I pray my transparency helps you if you are in the middle of a storm.  Remember living on donkey time is easy simply lay down inside your mind while you are in the middle of the storm, pray for peace and wisdom and wait for GOD.  Pray for all things and wait as great things always come after the storm in life if we stay in faith with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    Hello,
    Thanks so much for liking my first post, I’m all new to this blogging thing.
    This is a really nice post, and I really appreciated your post about Stacy Westalls mare, I was unaware of that happening. What a terrible thing.
    I look forward to reading more of your posts as I am interested in donkeys and mules as well as horses. My husband has a riding mule.
    Thanks again,
    Heather

    Melody thank you for sharing such deep experiences with us. Never stop educating everyone about donkeys and how special they are. I will always remember you wise words: Donkeys are on “Donkey Time”, they live in their moment and move at their speed and never ever get rushed!

      Hi Dr. Rayya,

      Tears for the donkeys in Texas they have survived drought, fire and homelessness and now they have to expereince this torture for greed and money of a rodeo. Praying this event will be stopped on June 23 and 24th, 2012. It is really a day of tears for the donkeys and America.

    Melody, I like the idea of donkey time as a way to live resting in the Lord. Thank you for this post! Jesus often pointed out creation and its wonders to make us think about things, such as lilies and birds.

    He also road a donkey into Jerusalem, didn’t He? A good Bible teacher mentioned that this meant He came in peace.

    Blessings to you! They look like amazing creatures – so charming.

    Maria

    I adore Donkeys. I used to have one called Jay-Jay when I was a child and I miss that Donkey. Wow, I’d forgotten all about Jay and Max (Max was Jays friend and he was a horse). Everyone needs a bit more donkey-time in their lfe. :o)

    Melody, great post. Especially loved: “Donkeys are on “Donkey Time”, they live in their moment and move at their speed and never ever get rushed. I make a point to try to live like the donkeys as life is precious and fragile and there is no need to get all worked up in traffic, a slow waiter, resolving medical billing, or just coordinating the repair of one of our home appliances. Whenever I start to feel anxious I stop and think to myself “I am on donkey time”, kinda like living in Hawaii life is slow and wonderful.
