Your Attitude Can Make Or Break You


I can choose to control my attitude 

Life is a funny thing we all start out in this world with the same amount of time. We all start out as kids dreaming of what our life will be when we grow up and then one day we wake up and we are adults living a life that we worked hard to build, trauma steps in and we lose our loved ones you get the picture. Or we are living a life we just let happen! I have learned in my fifty-four years on this planet that our attitude is number one in how we interact with others i.e., animals and humans.  Set clear boundaries with others and when they cross the boundaries I set for myself talk to the person and try to create peace. If the other person wants no peace I walk away and dust off my feet as the bible states enjoy this life GOD has given me. Why? Life is too short to cry over something we can’t change. We can only change ourselves not other people including our children, step children, parents, neighbors etc. We are called to be peace makers but when people take advantage of us it is time to say enough is enough and speak up.  Saying goodbye to people we have had in our life for thirty or more years is not easy but boy is it better than enduring the continued abuse or taking advantage of us. I treat people how I want to be treated and if I do not receive back what I put in I know I am not important to the person. So as I stated above I pray for the person and I remove myself from their life.

I love to garden, if I keep putting poison on my plants they will wither and die. The same goes for us, if we keep letting someone hurt us physically or emotionally in any way the poison will destroy our destiny and joy.  After the semi-truck accident I survived I lost friends of over thirty years, not my choice their choice. Why? They did not behave in a way a friend should behave and I had to walk away. Was I hurt yes but today I can say thank GOD I had the courage to end the long time relationship as I am closer to Jesus and I will be much more careful who I let into my life again as a friend.

Have you ever walked into a room with a person who is negative?

I swear you can feel the tension in the room and for me I just want out. I do not like being around negative people and I would much rather spend my time all alone in peace and quiet with Jesus Christ and the gifts he gave me my husband and animals than to spend time with a negative person. The negative person is not hating me they hate themselves and their energy is sucking energy out of me trying to help them. I pray for these people and I do my best to keep visits short. Why? Negative people destroy us positive people as they hate us.

Why do they hate us?

We are moving and dreaming and they are stuck. The next time you are with a negative person pray for them, try to have empathy and keep the session as short as possible. The other thing I do is bless them with whatever I can, food, help with a problem as the bible states we are to help one another, it takes Jesus Christ to be nice to a person who has intentionally hurt me. My flesh wants to get even return the pain, this is not what we are to do when we are children of Jesus Christ, we are to pray and give love to the hurting and lost as guess what? You may be the only light in this persons life. 


 

Think about your word as it is the only thing you have that is worth much today, treat others how you want to be treated

Do you need prayer?

Select the 700 club as they have prayer warriors ready to pray with you for free, I know as in my darkest hours I called for prayer many times I am very grateful to these people at the end of the phone line. If you are tired of being in the same place you have been forever ask JESUS CHRIST to come into your life and make him your Lord and Savior. JESUS will help you learn how to enjoy your life and stop negative behaviors for you. GOD is not santa but he is our heavenly father in heaven and he has counted every hair on our heads. GOD has a bigger plan for your life than you do.

Bible Verses

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones PROVERBS 17:22

Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body. Proverbs 16:24

I will serve the Lord my GOD, and he will bless my bread and my water and take sickness away from me. EXODUS 23:25

I will reverently fear and worship the LORD and turn (entirely) away from evil.  It shall be health to my nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to my bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

I will have balance in my life because GODs word states that if we are not well-balanced we open a door for Satan to come in and devour us. 1 PETER 5:8

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

Encourgagement


Howdy,

This is a beautiful maple tree on the Donkey Whisperer Farm, I hope you enjoy this tree as much as we do.

GOD is a faithful GOD we are given the strength to lean on GOD and hold tight to GOD but this takes diligence, prayer, reading the bible, being humble, listening to praise music, attending church, tithing, helping others. It seems GOD will use us to help others and the more we help others the more help will come our way.  GOD uses us to help others and this becomes more of a blessing for us than the person we helped, never forget that you and you alone have a special gift to help another living human or animal. 

Pain and trauma is not from GOD as we live in a fallen world we are not in heaven yet, I work at remembering that GOD can make life easier and GOD will restore everything stolen from our life. How do we know GOD is in control and still on the throne because we are children of GOD in Jesus Christ precious name.  GOD is a faithful GOD he restores everything in abundance stolen from us if we trust him.

Here is a beautiful video shared by Petra Christensen at Parelli showing regular people helping a whale this video made me cry as I love all the animals of the world that our father in heaven created with a special place for the whales as they are the most intriguing to me.  I have seen the whales in the Puget Sound while in a boat several times they are truly amazing.  

What if the people in the boat decided to not try to help the whale? What if they just rowed away?  Thank GOD they did the right thing and restored the whale to her life.  Amazing what people can do when they try.

Encouragement and comfort:

In the day of trouble he will  hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will he hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27:5

GOD will cover me with his wings; I will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend me. I need not fear any dangers in the night or sudden attacks in the day.  Psalm 91:4-5

And this small temporary trouble I suffer will bring me tremendous eternal glory, much greater than the trouble.  For I fix my attention not on things that are seen but on things that are unseen.  What can be seen last only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever.  Corinthians 4:17-18

I call out to GOD in Jesus Christ precious name, the GOD who holds me together.  He sends orders from Heaven and save me. GOD delivers generous love.  GOD delivers generous love, he makes good on his word.  Psalm 57:2-3

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

Thank You To All The Care Takers (Angels) In The World


Howdy,

Seems like some days, weeks, months and even years can feel like a severe cold winter hard to get moving hard to stay motivated just want a warm blanket. Equine (horse, donkey, mule), cats, dogs really help me out with these seasons.  When I go to their barn and feed them, clean up, care, rub, talk to them they are always grateful to see me I work very hard to stay in their neutral emotional place just enjoying every day the best I can.  My cats and dogs are always in the house with me and they play a very important role in my recovery.

I  feel the need to say Thank You to all the care takers in the world they are in a very difficult job and it is really hard to work and care for a sick person.  Without these angels GOD has placed in the world, life would be impossible for all the sick people and I know first hand how important it is to feel loved and have people take care of me and my farm when I was physically incapacitated after the semi truck hit me. 

Do you know a human angel caring for a sick or hurting person or animal? Please pause a moment and say a little prayer for this person and if you can give them a thank you note or a day off to go to the movies with a friend.  A simple thank you can refill their gas tank in life and recharge their battery with the end result making the world a better place. 

Are you a caretaker?  Please consider allocating time for yourself and love yourself as no human understands you like you do.  I understand how hard this is but just like we must be planning for retirement we should also be planning for a healthy happy life.  If we are constantly pouring our heart and soul out to someone who is incapable of sharing good things with us we start to burn out and our life becomes too much work and not enough fun.  I have learned that having fun is not an option it is a necessity as I feel better when I get to do fun things with people around me who love me and appreciate me.  Sometimes we just have to contract some work out and if we look at it this way “I’m creating jobs and helping feed a family” and I get some time off life is a little more easier.  Perhaps you have a financial difficulty at this time I know as we had a very hard time after the semi truck accident bills came that we had no plan for.  I bartered with my angel and massage therapist and it was a win-win situation perhaps this can help you or your loved one bartering works.

 

My progress:

I am happy to say that I am moving forward just completed Physical Therapy after going consistently for nine months very difficult, two times a week.  I go to acupuncture once a month for immune system and the doctor visits are quiet again, thank GOD.  Now the hard part comes for me to go on my own to the gym and just do it, no physical therapist pushing me harder to be the best I can be!  I have good days and bad days still but the bad days are getting fewer and the good days are getting longer and for this I am grateful to GOD. 

I just keep on pushing forward and believing that GOD can heal everything and take the pain, I am happy to report the pain is much better now, suffer towards the end of the day and at night but most mornings are good.  I am very grateful for all of my blessings and for each and every one of the people GOD has placed in my life to help me heal most importantly my husband Scott.  I am grateful to GOD for all the people who pray for a complete healing and remove the pain so I can get well to help others navigate life.   I make my husband Scott take off on his Harley and get away as much as possible he comes home very relaxed and recharged.  We have to find that one thing that recharges our batteries in life otherwise we just sit in neutral in life and time keeps on moving on.

Do you have some great ideas for caretakers?

Please leave a comment and I will post so everyone can benefit!

GOD bless you and your family two and four legs!
