Learning To Dance In The Storm


Howdy,

Life After An Almost Fatal Motor Vehicle Accident is challenging to say the least as chronic pain changes the person we once were, making it difficult to navigate life but not impossible.  Just for a moment think about a movie or book where people have overcome extreme trauma and obstacles?  Please never forget the shoes these people walked in, a road  very few people would choose as “no amount of fame or money can replace the life before trauma.”

Live your life with a grateful attitude and thank GOD for your health, family (two and four-legged) and never forget to thank GOD for those precious special friends (people) GOD has planted in your life. I believe true friends are angels sent by GOD to help us navigate this fallen world we live in I am especially grateful for my husband and best friend Scott.  I’m learning to dance in the storm  (in my mind) Stop Gritting My Teeth And Waiting For The Storm To Pass, Enjoy Every Moment Now as Life Is Precious and Fragile. 

Even for the most determined personality healing from life threatening injuries is never a straight line, set backs are painful, tearful and difficult feels like being knocked down over and over again. Attending physical therapy I see people come in after knee surgery or something else they work hard and graduate from physical therapy.  After almost two years I am still trying to restore my body, such a long, long time and yet I am learning to dance in the storm using my mind. GOD in Jesus Christ precious name is amazing!

I have learned the mind is the battlefield and I must never give up, never stop believing that any moment, hour or day GOD can change everything, remove this pain and suffering, give me peace, health and joy once again. Changing our thought process enables us to heal after trauma. If we can change our thought process, we pay attention to what we are thinking, reading, watching on t.v. and the internet we can not only manage trauma we can dance in our minds.  Never forget  “one step back followed by Three Steps Forward”,  means we are making progress.  Never give up, never stop trying to change and grow no matter what the circumstance. Stay grateful, humble and trust GOD for everything.

I will never give up, curl in a ball and wait for something good to happen. I believe a body in motion stays in motion, a mind in motion stays in motion and we get out of life exactly what we put into it, most importantly I trust GOD in Jesus Christ name to restore everything stolen and give us double for our troubles.

The LORD has declared that he will restore me to health and heal my wounds.  JEREMIAH 17:14 read from The Secret Power Of Speaking GODs word by Joyce Meyer.

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

Seasons Of Life


Howdy,

Seems life has seasons a time to grow, move forward, be quiet and dance.  The sitting still and being quiet season is the most difficult for me, looking back at my life this is the time GOD uses to grows deep roots inside of me.  Drastic transformation occur after the quiet time (Iron sharpens iron)  I am forever changed! 

Finding time to be alone with GOD in prayer is essential to balance in my life as without this balance life seems to be erratic and full of confusion.  Remember that I commanded you to be strong and brave.  Don’t be afraid because the LORD your GOD will be with you everywhere you go. JOSHUA  1:9 NCV bible

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

Planning To Bring Home Your Horse, Donkey Or Mule


Howdy,

Your excited all of your hard work and preparation; removing brush, trees, drain, hay barn, safe fence, and creating a shelter whew!  Now you are finally prepared to bring your equine (horse, donkey or mule) home.  Did you know the equine needs a buddy to stay in optimum health?  Did you know they will be better mannered for you when you provide a buddy?  Equine are herd animals, safety, social and grooming are all part of their basic needs for survival.  Placing your equine in a pasture all alone will make them have some serious psychological issues so do the right thing and make sure you have a buddy for your equine. 

Donkeys do best with at least two donkeys as well “donkeys are unique they are not horses they are donkeys”.  Equine need to lay down and sleep it is very difficult to do this when there is no buddy watching over them, thus comes training problems and all kinds of health problems.  Please never leave your equine all alone it is not natural for them.

Please consider how many equine need homes Pet finder are free or very low money to save an equine life and provide a buddy for your equine. All equine are herd members, all equine require another pasture mate in order to stay calm, relaxed, sleep and groom one another.  This is a fact not just an opinion. I am a student of the Parelli home study program for more information take a look at their website for natural equine training and care.

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

Walking On Water


Howdy,

I am a survivor of an almost fatal motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger with my GOD mother, looking back in time I had no idea my life was in jeopardy. The worst scenario ever a semi truck smashed into the passenger door where I was sitting.  Today my full-time job is to pray and believe GOD will heal my body and alleviate the chronic insane nerve pain, joint pain, back pain, numbness, deliberating pain the semi truck left me with. Walking with GOD is the only way I can navigate life as I am not strong enough to do this walk without Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, life is just too difficult to navigate without GOD.  

I honestly and transparently share my life experience to help not whine or complain as my husband and I live our life with a grateful attitude to GOD. Everyone has something difficult in their life and we fully understand some people have more trauma and tests than others.  I share my blog to give all the credit to Jesus Christ our Lord and savior, provide hope, information and encouragement in the pursuit of health, love, and happiness in this thing called life we all navigate daily.  Never give up, never stop working towards excellence in your life as we get no more and no less than the amount of effort “work” placed into our life.   Trust GOD for all things. 

Living with a humble and grateful attitude:

I am forever grateful to GOD in Jesus Christ name as I know I could have died and almost died after the accident.  I understand I could have lost my legs easily as eight ribs broke, lung collapsed, grade V kidney tear, pelvis shattered 3 large screws surgically installed to give me the ability to walk again.  Nerve pain is painful and causes sleep deprivation we continue to pray for a complete healing.  Honestly my husband and myself could have never endured this pain and suffering and loss without Jesus Christ as our LORD and Savior in combination with the bible for faith and healing.

Exercise is the key to getting well but exercise can cause more pain so our mind says no more. Sitting and not moving causes pain it imperative to get into a physical exercise program now while you are healthy.  I was physically fit from riding my horse and mammoth donkey, think of staying healthy as a savings account for your life as exercise is medicine. 

Doctors use a pain scale from 1-10 they ask what is your pain today? I have come to accept my full-time job is to try to alleviate pain, get physically strong again, be able to sleep more than five hours a night, smile and laugh more.  Pain robs the person inside of us who is full of joy and happiness, as pain is very difficult to talk about, difficult for people to understand and can make life frustrating.  No medical device can measure the amount of pain the human or animal is in.  We must be able to have empathy and see when a living being is in pain, we must be bold and do our best to stop pain and abuse of humans and animals.  

Walking on water (place a float around my waist) seems to be helping with less pain in the water still suffer from extreme pain out of the water mostly at night when trying to sleep.  Here is a cute video of a doggie doing physical therapy and playing at the same time.  Wondering if water physical therapy can help you or your loved one? Water therapy benefits

Do you have any stories of water physical therapy you would like to share?

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

People and Animals Never Forget How We Make Them Feel


Howdy,

GOD is great, GOD is helping me to stay strong and never give up.  I am now attending physical therapy once again and adding water physical therapy in along with gym work.  The key for me is to try to not over do it.  This is very hard when I want to get well and be able to attend Parelli to become a horse, donkey and mule trainer.  The photo below was taken before the semi truck accident this photo puts a fire in my belly and reminds me that nothing, nothing is impossible with our GOD in Jesus Christ precious name.

If you are having a hard time in life I suggest giving GOD a try in Jesus Christ precious name as he loves all of his children.  We must never forget we live in a fallen world and GOD does not bring tears, sickness, pain and suffering to us.  Jesus Christ is the prince of peace he is my Lord and Savior and I am very grateful for this relationship as the amount of pain and suffering I have had is difficult for the mind to understand.

GOD will never leave us or forsake us never.  I share my life with you to give you hope, inspiration and to know that you can do anything you are determined enough to do.  Never settle, never ever as we were all created with special talents and gifts enjoy your life and you will never work.  Life is whatever we want it to be it is no more and no less.

I liked this blog so much I pressed it enjoy. Maya Angelou.

I Am A Champion


Howdy,

I found this motivational video for a football team “I Am A Champion” and it made me cry it hit me in the heart!  We must never forget that as children of GOD in Jesus Christ precious name we are champions and nothing, nothing is impossible with GOD on our side.  What we think is what we get out of life no more and no less so never forget to be very careful what you are thinking and saying as our mind is the most precious and most valuable tool we have.  Never give up, keep pushing forward in this thing called life.

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!

Water Physical Therapy For Humans and Horses


Howdy,

Finally I am able to move forward again as I was suffering from serious insane back pain (spasms) for almost three moths.  Started physical therapy  (water therapy) for the first time, I am happy to report no pain on my back while in the pool due to the water buoyancy. The water is a very safe place to be in the recovery process of any healing program.  I just read an article for rehabilitation of horses using water , perhaps water therapy can help you. Please leave a comment if you  have experienced water physical therapy to help your body.

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

Need Help Training A Mammoth Donkey To Ride?


Howdy,

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I received an e-mail this morning wanting to know how to go about this task? I highly suggest studying under the home study program of Parelli 30 days free.  Parelli has the best home study program available to teach you how to teach your donkey to ride.  Parelli also offer a wonderful social network program to meet Parelli trainers working in your area and students all across the world. 

Preparation is the key to training in natural equine training and lot’s of patience with donkeys.  Donkeys are intelligent and require a plan of action every time you are working with them, please remember less is more for all equine.  When you ask your beloved equine to do a new task ensure you understand how to ask them and release the pressure immediately after they do it right.  Always end short training sessions with the equine doing something right.  Kinda like when you were a kid and you were in school and a teacher would end the class with making you feel stupid?  Did you ever want to go back to that teacher again? Nope.  One of the reasons I love Parelli home study is they truly care about the equine.  They teach the human partner to be a partner, end each session with a good feeling for the equine and they are clear that love is not enough to train and stay safe, Parelli has tools to help you stay safe, rope halter, carrot stick, seven games and much, much more.  Working with equine is very serious business and safety should always be your number one concern for you and your beloved equine. 

Please remember that all equine (donkey,  horses and mules) must be given the basic training and physical strength exercises before riding them.  It is not fair to the equine to just hop on and expect them to carry the humans weight without prior physical strength training.  It is not fair to hop on and expect them to understand how to turn, whoa and back up without training.  Think how you would feel if a person hopped on your back, stuck a bit in your mouth, kicked you in the ribs to go while speaking in a foreign language?  All of the preparation in riding can be taught on the ground before swinging the leg over the equine give Parelli home study a try it works.  Check out the live forum on the donkey whisperer to ask questions and look at all the new free information for training ideas and health and well-being of our beloved equine.

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

GOD Is Amazing


Howdy,

The world is not a product of blind chance and probability; GOD created it.  GOD took his ultimate step toward fellowship with the people he created with his historic visit to this planet when he created precious Jesus Christ. Genesis explains how GOD’s deepest desire to relate to each of us with direct fellowship was a reflection of GOD connecting in a very personal way. I am not a preacher, I have no formal education of the bible but I can honestly say I believe everything means something in this majestic world we live in and nothing is by chance.  GOD is amazing.

Living my life with a purpose takes work as I have learned it is seldom about me, each event in my life has been a stepping stone to prepare me for today and tomorrow.  GOD is amazing, GOD uses every circumstance to touch all of his children.  The very personal semi truck accident has affected not only me and my family but everyone around me.  I am grateful for my walk with GOD in Jesus Christ precious name as without my faith I surely would have not been able to withstand the amount of pain, suffering and loss in seconds the semi truck accident created.  I sincerely and honestly can say I never would have believed that I would be a warrior for Jesus Christ but this is the will of GOD.  GOD has prepared me to be the warrior for Jesus Christ I am today. GOD is amazing.

Every person has the opportunity every day to make a difference in this amazing world we live in as each of us holds the key to peace and love for one another.  Each person has the opportunity to bow their knees to GOD and let Jesus Christ live inside of them if you cannot physically bow it’s ok GOD understands you can bow mentally.  If you are having a difficult time in this world please remember you and you alone have the ability to make a difference to be a human angel and a light in a dark fallen world for another person or animal.  I have learned helping others helps me. I have learned forgiveness help me do not stay angry as anger hurts us more than anyone else.  The first step is submitting evertything to GOD and let GOD drive the wheel in our life in Jesus Christ precious name.  GOD is amazing.

Life is messy, complicated and without a doubt orchestrated with the needs of others first and most importantly, amazing how we can help others solve their problems and yet we find it so very difficult to solve our own.  I tend to start to think what about me GOD?  What about me?  As I write this blog today tears stream down my face I can taste the salt and I wonder how many tears will I cry before this season changes and sunshine touches my face again. Why so many tears?  Why is life so difficult and then when I pray and wait for the answer it always comes back it is not just about me, so many others are affected by our actions. I have learned for without the tears we cannot appreciate the good things in life as we take them for granted, I live every day with a grateful attitude as I trust GOD to heal my body, mind and soul. GOD is amazing.

I pray for peace in our world, I pray for GOD to use my transparency and honesty to help you find Jesus Christ.  I pray my transparency and honesty helps you navigate life as every opportunity and creative idea is the gift of GOD.  Every person we interact with and share our life with is affected so be a light for Jesus and help others, stay bold, tell the truth, live your life with honesty and integrity, be courageous and wear the armor of GOD every day before stepping out into the world. You may be the light and hope a human angel a person or animal is waiting for “you cannot make a difference by sitting still, you must take action”, go forward and make light in a dark and fallen world. GOD is amazing.

Tips for living in peace:

Make Jesus Christ your LORD and savior

Receive GODs power and share the word with others

Stay in Love with this magnificent world

Keep positive information in your mind, rebuke all negativity

Stay active to help others

Pray for all things and stay grateful for everything

Remain peaceful through life’s storms

Remain in faith not sight

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