Relate: The single mother is becoming more and more a cultural norm here in America and the West. It presents unique challenges simply because throughout most of history it simply could not exist. In Israel during Jesus time and before, very few women would be able to live on their own, let alone do so while raising kids. A girl lived with her father until she was old enough to marry. Then she lived with her husband. If he died she would either remarry quickly, go back to living with her father, or if her children were old enough she could live with them. This last case was most likely the one Mary and Jesus were in. Although the Bible doesn’t…

I have learned when I give up control, lay down on the floor and cry in my mind or physically and tell GOD I quit trying to fix this mess he steps in and takes over. Why? GOD wants us to acknowledge him and ask for his help then and only then will he send the right desires of our heart and open closed doors. All of the dreams we each have were planted at birth. NEVER GIVE UP, TRUST GOD IN JESUS CHRIST NAME for everything! 2015 is going to be your best year if you let GOD drive your life.

I have learned I can dance in the middle of the storm in my mind hard to dance physically with screws in my pelvis. I can smile and laugh and it feels oh so good and this is all due to GOD’s gifts nothing to do with me, nothing at all. I give 100% of my life to Jesus Christ as without him I will wither away and rot in depression. Dance with Jesus is real I know as I have suffered but I have also danced with Jesus. I pray this re-blogged post brings you peace. Remember to spend quality time with GOD he is wants us to ask for help on driving, going to the store, staying calm, our health, ,marriage and much, much more. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

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.

Learn To Enjoy Waiting

Learn To Enjoy Waiting

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

To those of you who have been following my blog for five years I want to say wow thank you! If you are new to my blog enjoy, you can go back five years by selecting the search engine and the calendar.  My life has never ever been boring but this I can tell you it has been my life.

After the semi-truck accident we had to wait for GOD to heal me restore my health so I could enjoy my life again this took over three years as I attended physical therapy two and three times a week. I never gave up!  When I was forced to go to the gym three days a week and lift weights I chose to wear my Arriat horse riding gloves as I wanted to have my dreams and goals right in front of me.

Today I am fifty-four years old and I can tell you I spend most of my time waiting. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday comes, Sat oh boy and then Sunday day of rest. Monday, repeat, and repeat again. Save money, plan a vacation and get sick or have problems really? I find myself going really? Why? GOD gave me my best friend and my husband of twenty-two years. I am most grateful for this man in my life as he is dependable and he is patient even when I cry and throw a temper tantrum, yes I must say us extroverts are not easy to live with. My husband has taught me to be patient, trust GOD and enjoy the ride, enjoy our time together as one day this will all be gone.  I am still working on this lesson, I by all means have more work to do but I am trying to be more patient when my dreams and goals are placed on hold.  I have learned to stop acting like a child when things do not go smoothly and well most of life is this way. I have learned to enjoy every moment good and bad. This is why it is wonderful to be alive! Every day is a day to get a white piece of paper out and draw my dreams and goals. When I meet people who say I have done all there is to in life I weep inside. How can anyone do everything there is to do in life? Never give up!

MinisgettingREMsleep

If you are in a time of trauma, health, death, sickness, or worse I want to share how to smile during the thunderstorm in life.

Most people are visual and they need visual aids to keep them focused on their goals. Ok, a few do not need this but most do so whatever you are waiting on you need a few rules to help you achieve your dreams and goals.

1. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and I give 100% of my health restoration still physically disabled, still have pain every day but oh my so much better. Jesus is the beginning and the end, the alfa and the omega of this thing called life. Without Jesus Christ I would never have survived the semi-truck accident, Jesus kept my marriage and gave me my dream of owning my business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC.  Jesus brought this land to our feet that we now call home in Sequim, WA as our farm never went on real-estate market. Favor and abundance for GOD’s children is easy as GOD commands the angels to go to work when his children are faithful and in need. You may say to me GOD is not Santa Clause and my response is absolutely YES you are correct. God determines on the day we are born how long we will live, when we will die and how we will die. GOD determines how long we will wait and sometimes GOD does not give us what we pray for at all. I call these times blessings!

2. Pray every day for GOD to help you smile again, find something wonderful in your life to thank GOD for. Money problems suck and I was born poor and I understand how hard this is for sure but these hard lessons have built me to be the financial expert I am today. Give some, save some, and learn that this thing called money is a gift from GOD as he gave us the ability to do the job we are doing, all of the things we own and have one day will go to dust or to another person to care for. Feeling depressed and stuck, a good nights sleep is essential to health, prayer and meditation the bible will unlock the negativity stuck in your brain. The brain is truly the battlefield trust GOD to restore your life and give you a smile and peace in the middle of the storm.

3. When negativity comes in your mind learn to change your thoughts. You can do something to change your thoughts, a warm bath, shower, take a walk, watch a funny movie or look at beautiful photos of Donkeys, Horses, Mules or whatever it is that makes you smile. Remember you control what you put into your mind 100%. Don’t watch t.v. shows that make you sad, watch shows that inspire and help you to laugh. Laughter creates endorphins and endorphins help us heal our mind, body and soul.

4. Remove all negative people from your life and do not let them back in. Now for family this is most difficult but you can choose the amount of time you spend with them and you can set boundaries explaining you will not tolerate verbal abuse and Never let anyone physically abuse you. You have the divine right to live a safe, happy and healthy life with no physical or emotional abuse.

5. Get a white piece of paper and start writing down your dreams and goals. Put this in your wallet and look at it every day!

Riomelodyride2014july19sequimfarmage8

6. When you start to get frustrated as too many years have passed and your dreams and goals are not happening look in the mirror. Who is in charge of your life? GOD made each one of us to have one gift that is to help others. One gift that is to change the world and when you find this gift you will never call work again. When we are pursing our GOD given gift and passion it is a joy to get to share our talents with others. Hint; if you hate your job you are not doing your gift and talents GOD placed in your soul I know as for years I was an Information Technology person. I was a single mother and I needed to eat, one day GOD changed all of this and the change was not easy but it has made me the person I was born to be.

7. If you suffer from depression get help. Nothing to be embarrassed about being depressed especially if you have encountered trauma and you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Today is not the day of buck up and get over it. Today we have really good counselors and doctors to help us cope with death, trauma and loss of the life we once knew or worse abuse we have survived as a child or as an adult. Abuse happens more today than ever before as people are so stressed, cost of living, fear for world events, family stresses, no time to decompress and re-wind our batteries. Nothing to be embarrassed of if you are suffering from abuse it is not your fault. What is important to remember is you can change this, you can pray to Jesus and he will help you find peace and harmony and use your gifts and talents he placed in you in your mother’s womb.

8. Help others even if you feel no one helps you. Why does this work? The bible tells us to get our minds off our self and help others it is how GOD created us, we must pay it forward. I am very grateful for all the people in my life who helped me as at the right time GOD brings people in and then he burns them away when they will hinder our growth to do his plan for his glory in life.

9. Stop complaining, stop being angry what is done is done. No one can become successful on the first try it is very rare and most of the time impossible. Most of the best things created were created by making a mistake.

10. Do not mourn for yesterday as today is what is the most important part of your life. I teach all of the time to my students world-wide how to train their horses, donkeys and mules. Number one rule is live in the moment, put away your job, cell phone, husband, kids, parents and be one with your equine. The minute you are not plugged in I call it, connected to your equine 100% they disconnect from you and do their own thing.  I have learned it is the same in waiting for GOD to give me my answer to prayer and believe me I have many that I do not share with the world, too private and too painful to share. When I stop living in the moment and being grateful for living on our new farm in our 5th wheel and pushing hard to get my final home-built to be more comfortable I think I grieve GOD. He no doubt thinks how spoiled are you for not appreciating what I have given you now I will make you wait longer. I now know that I am not being punished when my prayers are not answered I am being protected. GOD will not let his children handle more than they can handle. I know this statement is hard to understand when some of us are dealing with death, cancer, trauma, permanent disability but GOD places human angels to surround his children and help them. GOD is always available and he loves all of his children even the children who do not love him.

11. When GOD gives you the answer to your prayer tell the entire world about how GOD created your miracle. Why would GOD give you things if you are embarrassed to say you believe in GOD. The bible is clear if we are ashamed to say we are a Christian GOD will not give us favor. I need all the favor GOD can send my way as I am not smart enough to manage this thing called life without GOD. I even pray for GOD to help me zip up my coat when it is stuck. Since I am an extrovert and a AAA personality I fight every day to live in the moment and not run ahead of GOD. GOD created me and I ask for forgiveness when I get frustrated and guess what GOD forgives me and Never Ever rubs in my face my mistakes. This is something us humans have a problem with myself included.

12. Forgive quickly and do not keep a record of who has hurt you and how they hurt you. Pray for your enemies, pray GOD helps them as hurting people hurt people. Kind people are people who actually have depth perception and truly understand why it is important to forgive and live in peace and harmony. Living your life with a bitter heart, mind and soul will cause you to get physically sick and it will literally destroy your life. You will die a bitter lonely person.

13. Never give up ever!!! Never settle, we were created to be warriors for JESUS CHRIST! God has given us all the tools we need to survive this thing called life and it is by no accident where you were born or where you live. Someone needs your light. If you do not know what this means I will explain. Life leaves all of us with external scars, wrinkles and scars inside our bodies. GOD heals us and we shine bright for others suffering. We shine and we share that GOD is real and in return our light shines and helps others find their light and shine and GOD pays it forward. With the internet we can help so many more people than ever before.

14. Let the little things go! Pick your battles if something is serious address it and fix it but then let it go. I always pray before I begin any serious conflict with an individual or business. If something is personal and it bothers me I take into account what it will do to my health to make a point. If it is really important I ask GOD in Jesus Christ name for wisdom and how to proceed. If it is just a little thing that has annoyed me I let it go. It is not my job to correct the entire world.  My job is to share the love and joy and miracle of Jesus Christ this is why I am still alive.

15. Christmas is almost here, so many people look so stressed everywhere I go. Why? Christmas is to be a time of celebration of Jesus Christ not going into debt. If you can’t afford presents just say I would love to clean your house for a Christmas present, wash your car, mow your lawn anything but I am financially not able to buy anything my goal is to become debt free. If you can afford to buy presents than by all means be a blessing, I love sharing and giving thought minded presents. Never stop tithing as your money is given to you by GOD/Jesus Christ. Even if you can only afford $1.00 give it to prove to GOD that you believe in his financial world as what you give proves to GOD that you trust him to replenish your finances.

Breathe a deep breath every morning and tell GOD how grateful you are to still be alive! Tell GOD how grateful you are that behind the scene he is working to restore double for your troubles and tell GOD whatever you are praying for is done. Faith = seeing something done. If we cant see it GOD will not release his angles to go to work for us. We have to trust GOD to finish what he started and believe me GOD always finishes what he starts.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2015!

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

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.

Fish Relax Me

Fish Relax Me

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

We have been living in our 5th wheel since June 1st, 2014 as we made the decision to have one house payment. We are living on the promise of Jesus Christ; living on the land GOD gave us we never went looking for this land it was brought to us by Jesus Christ. Our real estate agent who was helping us find the perfect twenty acres for the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business received a call from the seller wanting to sell the land. Our land never went on the market!  GOD in Jesus Christ name creates miracles today you just have to look for the miracles they are for all who call JESUS father and our Lord and Savior.  Our farm is one more miracle as GOD saved my life and now he is restoring all that was stolen from us. We will be forever grateful to the loving mercy of Jesus Christ.

After the life changing car accident left me with a life long disability (3 screws in my pelvis) we made the most difficult decision to leave our carriage home of thirteen years on five acres in Kingston, WA our trauma is your gain. Interested select 26695 Trophy Lane NE, Kingston, WA 98346 for more details.

When the time came we purchased our new farm in Sequim, WA with nothing on it except irrigation, two pear trees and one apple tree as we are living in faith GOD will provide all that is needed.  Moving into our 29 foot fifth wheel has been humbling to say the least as I had to give my fish away, we had a 55 gallon tank for twenty two years, with three dogs and two cats the fish had to go.

Our fish tank last Christmas

Enjoy the fish!

 

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