The Donkey Is Still The Under Dog


donkeyabused
Will you have the courage to share this today and help the donkeys?  Please help if you can, even by sharing this post you are helping. Donkeys are still very much ‘a beast of burden’ in Egypt. ACE provide free veterinary care and education in animal husbandry. Select EGYPTACE 
 
Sadly the U.S.A. donkeys are abused by being overfed with the wrong feeds. Donkey Roping, Donkey Basketball, Donkey Penning and Donkey Baseball. Donkeys have a weight limit too. This is why I do what I do to help create awareness and change for the beloved under dog the Donkey. Tears for the abused donkeys in the U.SA. and out of the U.S.A. This is why I do what I do to help create awareness for the donkey, Melody Johnson, Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.

First Step Is Forgiveness Second Step Is To Smile


one of the happiest

I am just a human being I love Jesus and I am very grateful that Jesus loves me. Without Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior I could have never survived all of the things this world has thrown at me. I refuse to share my entire life with you but I will share this I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, and I came from a dysfunctional broken family. For years I did not believe GOD was real as it appeared to me he did not care about me.

I am grateful as GOD came to me the minute I fell to my knees and I asked him to help me I am sad to share I asked GOD to come to me after a spinal cord tumor was discovered on my back, I had no options to fix this on my own. My life has never been the same since that day in 2002, GOD created a miracle and the tumor was removed and I was back to work in weeks, but I was a different person as Jesus was now living inside of me.

Like many people I thought if GOD was real he did not care about me as my life had been trial after trial, my child-hood sucked, tears and more tears. Now in my mid fifties I can share my life is not perfect but I can honestly say my life is stable and I am giving new strength, creativity and hope each day, this is something I am very grateful for.  GOD in Jesus Christ name has provided me with a stable husband and best friend and oh how wonderful of a gift this is, I love my husband so very much.

ReALWOMAN

GOD has given me the chance to start my own business while I am disabled and all of this is 100% so I will share how GOD created me and you. If you are lost just close your eyes and ask Jesus to come into your heart and make him your Lord and Savior. Ask Jesus to forgive your sins and he will and I promise you he will never ever remind you of them again, satin will but GOD will not. The bible states we are washed whiter than snow, every hair is counted on our heads and GOD knows before we do something what we will do.

ifyourdreamsdontscare

Never give up and never stay down. If you stay down you will never move from the spot you are in, if you get up things will change. Never settle! We were created to ask GOD for the best, we must ask and then we will receive if we have faith. GOD is not santa he will not give us what will be harmful to us. GOD wants his children to shine and share their light he placed inside of us. Remember you are the apple of GOD’s eye and he will never forsake you, never. Pray for everything and then trust GOD have faith that what you have asked for will happen. If it is not for your good ask GOD to not give it to you. GOD is the alpha and omega the beginning and end, he knows what gifts and talents he has blown our way and he knows how to bring them out of us. The key is sharing, and helping others, hoarding and not caring about others is not the way we were created to live. Courage is not easy as friends can be lost, jobs and more but GOD will give us the courage to do whatever is necessary for us to be healthy and happy. Trust GOD in Jesus Christ name for all things and watch him show up and show off. GOD loves to give gifts to his children but he expects us to share with the world that he did it for us. I know I can do nothing without Jesus Christ in my life, nothing. All good comes from GOD. All bad comes from Satin never forget this.

Sometimes we have to forgive a human who hurt us usually someone we loved so very much a family member who betrayed us, a friend who let us down and threw us under the bus, you get the picture. Forgiveness is for us not for them. We can forgive and pray for the person and keep them out of our life as toxic people can not stay in our life it is draining and not the way GOD wants us to live. Toxic people are miserable and think of nothing except themselves these people will die all alone and have no one to attend their funeral. How sad but again this is their choice not ours. I choose to have very few real friends in my life and to let go of all of the past dysfunctional relationships. I send prayers and blessings to each person I have set free and I am a much happier person to not have this negativity in my life.

lettinggo

How do you feel about forgiveness?

Is it easier now for you as you know the poison must get out of you; anger, bitterness, resentment let go of all of this poison and enjoy the gifts and treasures GOD has given you this day. After all you will never get this day back again. LIFE IS FRAGILE AND PRECIOUS.

Large number of salmon return to Columbia River

Large number of salmon return to Columbia River

Originally posted on KOIN.com:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Hundreds of thousands of salmon are making their way from the ocean up the Columbia River this month, a windfall for salmon eaters and tribal and recreational fishermen in the Pacific Northwest.

It’s one of the largest runs since dam construction blocked river passage for fish. The run is forecast at 1.5 million salmon by year’s end – though fish managers say the final number may turn out to be lower.

More than 460,000 adult chinook have already passed over the Bonneville Dam on their way to spawning areas in native streams. That’s the first dam salmon cross in their migration upriver.

Monday’s 67,521 chinook were the largest single-day return since the dam was built in 1938.

Fish managers attribute the large run to good ocean conditions and improved habitat.

Living On Our New Farm In A Fifth Wheel, Summer of 2014

Living On Our New Farm In A Fifth Wheel, Summer of 2014

Well this is the scoop; Me and my hubby Scott (my best friend of twenty-two years) have been living in our 29 foot 5th wheel since June 1st, 2014 and life on the new farm is beyond wonderful, GOD is amazing! We are praying for the new owners to purchase our home and farm of thirteen years in Kingston, WA so we can build our last home as we are in our fifties now. Life on the twenty acre farm in Sequim, Washington is wonderful beyond my wildest dreams Jesus has provided us with the perfect place to set up our home, farm and business.

Every day I see sunshine here, ok one day we had rain since July 1st, 2014. Every day I see the mountains, stars, sunrise, sunset and sometimes a little bit of fog from the Dungeness Spit. We live close enough to the Dungeness river to go fishing and hopefully we will get to go this fall I cant wait to fish again as it has been way too long. The semi-truck accident changed everything and now I am strong enough to give it a try again. The first time I went steel head fishing I caught a nice size fish around twelve pounds and well this was the last time a very long time ago in the earl 90’s.

Our three mini donkeys are so much fun and they love the new farm and play tug each night when it cools down with their orange mini traffic cone and jolly ball. So much fun to watch them play tag too. Rio is enjoying grooming Tuba and he plays rough with Oboe so all is good here now as he had a hard time missing little Rocket Man. He still stands and watches him every now and a then just to be sure he is safe and happy as they are divided by the hot wire.

My mare Miss Lily is so happy to have Miss Trophy our new black saddlebred they are always together and literally walk the same and dance the same. When one trots so does the other and they lay down and sleep together. Lily is Trophy’s new mentor and leader and she thinks we got Trophy just for her, to funny as we did. “Horses really want to live with a horse, donkeys want to live with a donkey and a mule well they can live with either and be very happy depending on the sex, age, size etc., common sense.”

I am so grateful to have my new MD barn as I can no longer lift heavy things due to the screws in my pelvis. I can swing the lazy susan door around and put my ausie saddle on Rio and Lily and go for a ride on the farm. No more hard work to get to ride. GOD is amazing! I remember going to physical therapy and wearing my ariat riding gloves to lift weights thinking one day I will ride again. Well GOD never ever lies, I get to ride again and one day I will go for a trail ride again and perhaps canter again. My back and core muscles still fight me every single day. Pain is always in my body but I have learned how to manage it one day at a time. If you have pain, pray to Jesus and NEVER GIVE UP!

We continue to pray for GOD to give us favor and sell our home in Kingston, WA on five acres to the right family. A Family who will love the home/farm as much as we did and care for my flower gardens. God has a plan and now we must wait. Seems waiting is the hardest part but it is not too hard as every day is a beautiful day living on the new farm in Sequim, WA. I am very busy training five new equine, working with my virtual students and this winter I will finish my book, the book is a surprise (educational and humor) I promise to share after it is ready for sale 2015.  Please support my new business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC as I enjoy educating and sharing information to make life wonderful for all the donkeys, horses and mules in our most fragile world.

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

BLM to send wild burros to Guatemala to become beasts of burden?

BLM to send wild burros to Guatemala to become beasts of burden?

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning to send America’s supposedly “protected” wild burros to Guatemala, where the once free-roaming wild burros may well become beasts of burden for poor rural Guatemalans with, most likely, little spare income for farriers or veterinary care (if there were any even available). Guatemala is one of the poorest countries in Latin America.

BLM plans to ship the burros about 2, 000 miles. The food for burros will certainly differ between the USA and Guatemala. The BLM recently had about 80 wild mare’s die, supposedly from stress, shipping the mares from one location to another WITHIN KANSAS.

Will the burros be shipped by ground, through regions with drug gangs? There are many human rights violations in Guatemala, so why would American…
