Two Mules And A Vet


68-year-old Charlie Peters is taking an eleven hundred mile trip from his home in Owosso, Michigan to Okemah, Oklahoma to pay his first ever visit to his father’s grave. And he’s making the trip in a rather unique way!

Select Two Mules and A Vet to read all about the journey of traveling and a horrific car accident. 

“Please if you are driving put the cell phone down, stop texting and pay attention.  Car accidents can be prevented if we the human would pay a bit more attention to driving.”

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

When Life Is Just Too Hard


IMG_4167

Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm

Seems the most difficult times are amongst all of us living in this fallen world but this I know for sure, When I was in my darkest place, most pain not sure what the future held Jesus was holding my right hand. Jesus was helping me stay strong keep reading Psalms over and over and speaking the word of JESUS CHRIST out loud, Never Give Up as GOD has a plan, GOD’s plan is always better than my plan.”

When I could no longer hold my bible due to weakness and pain (8 broken ribs and more), I would listen to my iPod with Max McLean reading Psalms and John over and over.  This helped me so very much to fill my head with the word of GOD. No room in my head for satins lies.

Several times when the pain was the most unbearable I felt like I was being punished by GOD, that he did not care about me and I just did not understand why I had to endure such horrific amounts of pain for so long.  The  absolute worst part was not being able to sleep more than four to five hours per night.  Prisoners of WAR understand what sleep deprivation can do to the human body, mind and soul.  I lost many long time friends of over thirty years during this most difficult time in our life as trauma burns away all the non-essential things in our life including people. 

April 13, 2013 was the three-year anniversary of the semi-truck accident and I can finally say the pain is manageable.  Select GOD created a miracle for me to read more. I am still in physical therapy two days a week and massage therapy one day a week but slowly and surely I am getting stronger.  The most difficult part of rehabilitation of injuries like mine are the back slides, I work so very hard in physical therapy and then boom can’t do much of anything for a couple of months due to the insane pain and rib, back and hip spasms. Winter is the most difficult as well the arthritis is building fast in my body and the cold is extremely painful I wear snow pants, long johns and layers of clothing from October into April living in the Pacific Northwest. The mind is the battlefield and I think we need to keep listening, reading and speaking the word until things change even if the only thing that changes is how we think our brain is connected to our joy and peace.

Nothing stays the same forever nothing except GOD’s Love!

I pray GOD releases his angels from Jesus Christ to surround you with light, love, healing and hope, I pray GOD binds the two of you if you are married to one another in a way so strong a way that you have never felt before.

I pray these angels from Jesus Christ make you a Warrior For Jesus Christ no matter what the final outcome is with your health, finances, family, job (trauma), I pray you can be a witness to the sweet grace, peace and hope that only GOD in Jesus Christ name can give us in our darkest times.

We believe in miracles because I am a miracle and I know GOD can create a miracle for you too!
Never give up as GOD will never give up on you.  Perhaps tomorrow will be your big day a breaking of sunshine is coming never give up!

Prayers that have helped me, I pray they help you!

The Lord causes my enemies who rise up against me to be defeated before my face; they shall come out against me one way and flee before me seven ways.
Deuteronomy 28:7

Guide me in your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for you are the GOD

 of my salvation;

for You (You only and altogether) do I wait

(expectantly) all day long. Psalm 25:5

When I am deficient in Wisdom, I ask of the giving GOD who gives to everyone
liberally and ungrudging , without reproaching or fault-finding, and it
will be given to me.  James 1:5

Peace I leave with you ; My own peace I now give and bequeath to you.  Not
as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled,
neither let them be afraid. Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and
disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and
cowardly and  unsettled.  John 14:27

IMG_4169

Remember FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real – Satin whispers fear into
our ears but GOD screams the truth of peace, hope and eternal life.

Do you have a copy of Joyce Meyer The Secret Power of Speaking GOD’s Word?

Would you like someone to pray with you?

On a personal note:

I have been writing on my blog for three years now in between trying to get my life back one day at a time after surviving a life threatening car accident (semi-truck) while riding as a passenger.

Blogging is a wonderful way to stay connected to our most precious world and share free information to help people and animals.

Iron Sharpens Iron


Wow I have heard this statement over and over again; I guess this is what helps people feel better saying such a thing when trauma hits our sweet loved ones.  Another one I hear over and over is “GOD only gives you as much as you can take, you must be really strong.”

GOD loves his children and he authorizes pain and suffering to his children for a short time and then GOD in Jesus Christ name brings justice for his children.  When GOD steps in everything changes and people will have no doubt it was GOD as no man can do what GOD can do.

No human can really understands life as GOD is in control not us. 

SUNSETPBEACH20012

Prayer:

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but I remember the name of the Lord my GOD. Pslam 20:7 (NKJV)

I trust in, rely on, and am confident in You, O Lord, I say, You are my GOD.  My times are in your hands.  Psalm 31:14-15

The fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.  Proverbs 29:25

The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer; my GOD, my keen and firm Strength in Whom I trust and take refuge, my Shield and the Horn of my salvation, my High Tower.  I call upon the Lord, Who is to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies.  Psalm 18:2-3

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Snow On The Donkey Whisperer Farm

A few precious photos of our little farm blanketed in snow.

The damp and cold does not play well with the large surgically installed screws in my pelvis. I miss snow shoeing, and playing in the snow.

After weeks and months of gray and rain the snow seems to brighten everything up in the Pacific Northwest.

Old man winter brings more work on the farm as the hose freezes, forcing water to be hand carried.  Horse and donkey poop freezes and sticks deeply into the ground it’s really the only time the poop is not picked up twice a day on our little farm.

Does not matter as when the snow melts the poop seems to be everywhere making more work playing catch up. 

Blankets need to be added and changed and well winter on the farm is a bit more work but each step is a blessing.

Never forget how blessed you are if you get to live on a farm with animals.

Remember horses and donkeys like warm water so get a heated bucket for their barns make sure they can’t bite the cord.

I want to say “Thank you honey” my husband comes home after working hard all day at his job it’s dark outside now.  He put’s his head lamp on so he can find the donkey and horse poop he is the best husband a woman could ask for.  My husband Scott does all the heavy lifting for me and well my husband has made it possible for me to keep my little farm in the midst of trauma and a permanent disability.  My husband is my human angel!

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Blog Of The Year Award 2012


I am honored to receive this Award from All Things Boys – Thank you again!  I am a bit overwhelmed as blogging started out after surviving a life threatening motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger.

How Blogging Has Helped Me

Blogging helped me fill my time, stay connected to the people in our most fragile world

Blogging has given me a sense of purpose

with the extremely long isolated days and nights (pain) turned into

 weeks than months and finally years

Almost three years of physical therapy rehabilitation learning how to walk and adapt to chronic nagging pain caused by the broken ribs that did not heal correctly along with three long surgically installed screws in my pelvis. I suffer from horrific back pain, rib pain, neuropathy in my feet, ankles and deep aching pain in my right hip where the screws were surgically drilled into my pelvis.  Pain is something I write about to help others and share why training equine in a natural way without pain and resistance is the very best way.

Please remember to trust Jesus Christ each and every day and make him your Lord & Savior as he is truly the light of our most fragile world.

Here is instructions for the Blog Of The Year 2012  

As you can see there is one gold star with the possibility of six in total.

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

Back To Physical Therapy – a gait physical therapist


Howdy,

Update on my  health:

The bible says “The Lord Gives Us Strength For Today”, I try to remember I just need to enjoy the day as best as I can as things could have been way worse than they are, heck I could have died very easily.   I will forever be grateful to Jesus for letting me live and keep my most precious legs and brain, GOD is indeed amazing as my body survived what can only be called a miracle.  I am indeed grateful for the medical team of doctors that worked on my body and continues to support me as I learn to live with the physical disabilities and life long pain the motor vehicle accident created.

The weather is a huge factor for me as the screws in my pelvis do not like cold and damp weather, perhaps one day GOD will provide a place for us to live with less rain and not so darn cold.  The last two months have been record breakers for lack of rain in Western Washington, fall is here as the mornings and nights are getting colder again causing the deep hip pain to return oh how I did not miss this pain.

I continue to endure rib pain, hip pain, neuropathy in my feet, back pain, middle, lower and upper as well my pelvis does not move with the screws in it as it should.   I wear shoes called Joya to help walk on cement but still stairs and cement are my biggest challenge. Walking is indeed one of my most difficult challenges along with sitting I really need the pelvis elevated for the best relief.

Remember to stay grateful for everything in your life as someone in the world has it worse off than us.  Our life is fragile and precious and we should never ever take any of it for granted as we never know when our time is up, our health is the most important thing we can own. If you have your health you are indeed blessed.

I thank you for continuing to pray for me and my family,  I pray my story has helped you stay motivated and inspired to trust GOD in Jesus Christ precious name for all things.  GOD is amazing!

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
