GOD Knows His Children By Name


Welcome,

This little story was sent to me today it brought great peace and tears to my face.  I pray it helps you today with your journey in this thing called life!

A Bus Stop Angel

There was a still a steady rain when Amee trudged into the shelter at the bus stop that evening. Sitting heavily on the bench, she stared at muddy gutter, and wondered when things would ever change. So much had been wrong, she felt she was slowly being crushed inside. The physical therapy after the auto accident was only supposed to be for a couple weeks. The weeks had stretched to months, and although she could walk now, she still fought for balance on her steps, and the numbing ache still robbed her of sleep most nights. Her broken collarbone still ached, too, when it rained. Like today. Her stomach growled, and she grimaced at the thought of food. All the medications were ruining her appetite, too. She was so tired of being sick. So tired of being tired. Amee sat lost in thought, as the rain dripped steadily off the awning.

Suddenly, Amee was aware of white service shoes in front of her line of vision. Startled, she followed the sturdy uniform-clad legs up to see pudgy tan hands clasped around an ample waist within a bright blue scrub shirt. She looked up into a pair of crinkled-rimmed kind brown eyes, and realized a woman was speaking to her.

“Ya all right, honey?” she was saying. Without warning, Amee burst into tears. In seconds, the woman had stepped close, and pulled Amee’s head to her ample bosom, and held her quietly close. The moment passed, and Amee straightened up, apologizing profusely through her tears.

“Stop Amee,” said the soft voice. “God knows when we’re drowning, and need His touch. The sun will come out again for you.” Gently she kissed Amee’s forehead, and turned to walk away.

“Wait!” cried Amee, “How did you know my name?!”

“God knows all His children by name, child.”

As Amee blinked in astonishment, the bus arrived, blocking her view. As she stood up, shaking her head, the voice came again. At the same moment as the breaking sunbeams. In the mist steaming off the pavement Amee distinctly heard, “He knows you needed to be held in His arms, for just a moment. To hear His heartbeat. He sent me to wrap you in it today.”

Horses and Donkeys Heal The Human Soul


Howdy,

Horses and Donkeys heal the human soul, just writing these words sends happy thoughts in my mind directly followed by a smile.  Horses and donkeys have a presence and energy about them that helps us humans along our journey in life.  I call them “Four legged angels sent by GOD” no doubt to help us humans navigate the good and bad times of our journey in this thing called life.   

Horses, donkeys and mules are prey animals meaning they eat grass, have emotional intelligence to survive around predators.  The human is a predator and thus learning natural horsemanship/Natural Donkeyship should be a priority. Without these training tools the human will never experience the connection the horse and donkey can offer, the relationship is more of a prisoner role.  How sad for the equine and the human to never have experienced the majestic connection these equine can offer.

Many organizations have captured their healing abilities to help people with stress, depression, anxiety as these magnificent equine have a presence about them that demands your full attention.  When were connected to these magnificent animals there is no time to stress about life, bills, family, job, money the brain is free to swirl in their world releasing more creativity in the lucky human. This is how the experience is for me and my husband each and every time is special and we never forget how precious and fragile each day is as we never know when our time is up or theirs.

In the cool weather the donkeys fur is long, thick, bushy and sticks straight out to keep them warm absolutely the most beautiful coats the donkeys have. Lily is white now her summer kissed golden Palomino fur has been replaced with a thick white fur coat along with her very long whiskers. I never shave their whiskers as equine use these for feeling when navigating their surfaces in short they need these long whiskers.  When the equine breaths into the cold powerful breaths of warm air come out into the air creating a beautiful swirl around their muzzle, oh how I miss riding in the trails and our arena.  Lily is truly a magnificent horse, she is the lead mare taking care of her herd of donkeys, she is waiting patiently for me to get well and no doubt looking forward to going back to work. 

If you get a chance to volunteer, work, or the best opportunity “Have an equine as your partner” you will be thanking GOD for the creation of these magnificent four-legged angels sent to earth to help us humans navigate this thing called life.

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

Please Help Stop The Abuse And Slaughter Of Horses For Human Consumption!


 
 
The “American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011″ (S. 1176) will end the slaughter of horses for human consumption and the domestic and international transport of live horses or horseflesh for human consumption.Tragically, each year well over 100,000 American horses are transported to international destinations to suffer inhumane slaughterin order to please the palates of those in other countries who consume horses. Predecessors of this bill have come close to being passed, but now is the time to ensure this bill finally becomes law.Take Action!
Please contact your United States Senator on the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s website today and ask him or her to stand up for America’s horses by supporting S. 1176.Horses, and all animals, should be free from exploitation and abuse by humans.Thank you for speaking up for horses and being an advocate for all animals!Sincerely,Stephen Wells
