After An Almost Fatal Car Accident – What Comes Next?


 

I try really hard to not be a victim, not be a whiner, not be a person who cries on my blog about the pain and suffering I endure daily from surviving an almost fatal car accident while riding as passenger.  I try really hard to keep my blog positive and stay focused to my purpose of creating the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business. I have no doubt GOD has me here for a reason. Perhaps my story will inspire you to never give up, let Jesus Christ hold you up when you are tired. Seems GOD created us to have free will. For some of us this is harder as we want to trust GOD but we begin recycling the problem, pain, money, suffering and then in exhaustion we cry out to GOD for help. I have learned to ask GOD for everything even a parking spot. 

My purpose; Helping the donkeys, mules and horses have a better life showing people resistance free training (without pain) is not only possible it is the best way to train equine this is indeed my purpose. 

Guess what I have learned while on this journey of teaching the owner or caretaker to train the donkey, mule or horse? 

It’s all about you! The donkey has sized you up in a matter of seconds.

  1. Abuser or bully
  2. Treat Dispenser
  3. Fair Leader Who Can Be Trusted

Remember the journey of life is short. We must not take a single day for granted at any moment everything can change. Change is what makes us grow. Change is terrifying without faith. Faith is something we feel we do not see. God asks us to trust him first. Next we must make a move. Show our faith. Most of the time after we do this we must wait. I think the waiting is a testing time. God is looking to see if we are real and will we trust him. I can tell you if you do not stop trusting GOD and live your life with gratitude, forgiveness to those who have harmed you and mostly yourself. Your life will explode with possibilities even you could never dream of. God is amazing! We humans are simply here to leave our finger print mark, a place for others to see we were here on the planet. Each of us has gifts and talents unique to what GOD has gifted us to do. The key is learning to trust what we love to do and then go do it.  Sometimes volunteering before expecting to work and earn money in a new profession is needed.

Shine your light bright for the entire world to see and never forget the moment you step out in life the critics will appear. Why? Some people simply are not going to like some people. It’s called life. Do not let this stop you from your dreams. These people have their own paths to take. Reminder it’s not about trying to please people. It’s about pleasing GOD. Say I am sorry and mean it when we make a mistake with another living human or animal and try not to repeat the behavior. We must try to work on ourselves it is the only thing we can truly change ourselves.  Forgive quickly. Live in the moment just like the animals.

All work with no relaxation or play is exhausting. Living in our busy world takes balance, planning and time management skills. We must take the time we need to recharge our batteries. Prayer is like talking to your very best friend it’s easy. Lord I know you are there in heaven. I need your protection, guidance and favor without you I am nothing. Sounds simple but many of us forget we must talk to GOD each day, never skip a day.

Our attitude is probably one of the most important things we can change; also one of the most difficult to change when enduring pain and suffering.  If we can learn to control our attitude we can create a massive chain reaction moving us into the life we want to create, share, enjoy and pass down as our legacy after we leave these human bodies.  I cry out for GOD to help me change my attitude as I don’t believe I am strong enough to tackle my attitude without Jesus Christ helping me.  Each of us has one life to live and it is our responsibility as adults to figure out our special gifts and talents and enjoy what we are given no matter how unfair it all seems.

I worked really hard to wait. GOD helped me wait and I could see the equine in the video camera surveillance as we have these in the stalls and pastures.

I could not put any weight on my pelvis for 90 days. The first thing I did after the car accident with the help of the walker was go see my horse and donkeys. Never give up!

Sadly I suffer from chronic pain daily, hourly since the almost fatal car accident in the spring of 2010. I just don’t understand why any person should have to have this kind of pain and suffering day in and day out.  Praying GOD releases me from pain and heals my body to 100% restoration, for now I must keep my head up and live life grateful most days I am pretty good. I am indeed a reminder to never invoke pain and suffering on any human or animal is truly awareness that I am trying to teach with GOD’s help I have indeed touched you in some way.  You will then make an attitude change and stop abuse of humans and animals as each of us is exactly in the right place to help others enjoy life.  Please do not let anyone abuse a human or animal. You can stop abuse!  God has planted you in the exact time and place to help another living animal or person. REMEMBER this could be you and you need a person to pay it forward. We get from life what we put into it, darkness or light. What do you chose? 

Yesterday was a hard day had another back spasm so bad again and I really don’t know why.  The metal in my pelvis messes everything up when I walk, bend, sit and stand and yet without the metal in my pelvis I would surely not be able to walk so it is a double edge sword one I work on mentally every single hour I am awake.

Writing is very therapeutic as it helps me help you.  Sadly, many of us live in isolation in this great big world, we think we are the only person suffering. Most people suffer it is the world we live in. Trying to live in the moment and help others is always a way to help us heal.

I share these very personal feelings in hopes my pain and suffering helps another human or animal not suffer so much.  GOD uses everything negative to help others and I pray my transparency helps you and gives you the courage to enjoy your life and push past the fears that are holding you back to enjoy this precious life.

Each of us has the same amount of time in each day and yet some people complete so very much more than others.  These are the interesting and perplexing thoughts that come into my mind all the time.  If you have survived trauma GOD has a reason to keep you here on earth.  GOD uses each of us to be a light in the dark for others. Never forget that GOD is good and he wants all his children to surrender to him with a simple prayer.

Please never ever abuse your donkey, horse or mule.  Please never abuse any human or animal and if you see abuse open your mouth and help the victim animal or human. You are a human angel. No other person can do what you can do as GOD has planted you in the perfect location. The key is to look for opportunities to be a blessing to others even when we are exhausted.

Please understand pain is not the answer to training horses, mules and donkeys.  Take the time it takes to train your equine after all you are the smart human they are just domesticated animals forced to live in the environment you created for them. Pain and suffering makes certain personalities of humans and animals fight back harder and one day the result can be deadly. Working with equine is a dangerous sport. Please be sure you have a great coach or trainer to teach you how to be a fair leader without abuse. Your family, work, and relationships all around you will flourish when you learn how to control your emotions. Animals are always looking for a leader not an abuser. People cannot learn anything from a bully. Please learn natural resistance free training techniques.

Here I am standing  in the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC office. Dreams do come true! Never give up!!!!

Be grateful for your life and what GOD has given you!  Do not treat your animals like prisoners in lieu of a partner.  If your horse, donkey or mule won’t come to you when you step into their world perhaps it’s time for you to figure out why? Sounds like a relationship problem and guess what outstanding relationships take time, prayer and patience.

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

Please Sign The Petition To Stop Donkey Roping – Get Them To Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, TX


Donkey roping is an extremely cruel “sport” where the donkey is shocked with a cattle prod until he tries to run away. Once in motion two people on horseback run the donkey down, one throwing a rope around its neck, the other around its rear legs. Once roped the donkey is then stretched between the two horses. Broken bones and death are all too common during these events.

CANCELLED?!

I have received these emails from 2 Van Horn City administrators. I NEED confirmation from Jason as well.
EVENT CANCELLED BY THE TOWN.
THANK YOU.
Preparing for the Future with respect for the Past.
Fran Malafronte
City Administrator
Town of Van Horn
T 432-283-2050
F 432-283-2839
franmalafronte@vanhorntexas.org
AND
The Town of Van Horn has heard the voice of all concerned and has convinced the promoter to cancel the event. Thank you for your concern, but be aware that Van Horn had nothing to do with this event and does not believe in promoting cruelty to animal.

I responded to Ms. Morales with the link to the promo poster https://donkeyrescue.donordrive.com/assets/donkeyrescue/images/$cms$/100/1459.jpg CLEARLY indicating that this event was PROUDLY PRESENTED BY THE VAN HORN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND CITY OF VAN HORN TX. CONTINUED ON ANOTHER UPDATE

I want to recommend that Jason Owen be politely encouraged to relinquish the 45+- donkeys to PVDR.

CANCELLED?! Continued from below update

from continued………….I also pointed out that there are photos and video (now password blocked) on http://www.justhorsinaroundphotography.com/p676930534/e17b0fa5e#h17b0fa5e clearing showing
donkeys being roped in Van Horn last July 2011.

I view this as a victory, partially. We need to get these donkeys to Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, we need a confirmation and promise from Jason Owen that he will not participate in any other donkey roping event EVER, meaning by purchasing donkeys for or promoting donkeys in a roping event.

Next we need this to stop all over Texas, and any other states that allows it. We need to pressure the law enforcement of Texas to actually enforce statue 42.09 http://donkeyrescue.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1122

ALL OF YOU ARE TO BE THANKED AND HUGGED, AND NUZZLED BY A DONKEY, FOR HELPING THESE DONKEYS. My most sincerest thanks and regards, Diana Reese

Cracked Pots


 

Howdy,

Reading blogs this morning I found this post named Go ahead  select to view and turn up your volume.  “Thinking about how the human body is like a cracked pot to GOD after we have been here on earth a while.”  Trauma (loss, pain, suffering, death, drugs, alcohol, divorce, cancer, car accidents, and family division) can change our beautiful bodies into cracked pots. 

Guess what?  GOD can use a cracked pot to help others as we can all relate to real life issues more than book smart stuff. GOD is amazing!

God in Jesus Christ precious name uses the cracked pots (hurting people who have given their life to Jesus) to spread light to all of his children.  Some of us have physical scars from the trauma we have endured but most just have deep emotional scars from the suffering and loss of this most difficult world we live in. We indeed live in a fallen world but with Jesus life is peaceful and rewarding.  

I say let your light shine through your cracked pot and be a human angel to another living person or animal.  Age has taught me I am not smart enough to handle all of the problems in this world, I submit, I give everything to Jesus.  

Select The bible  to receive a free bible app for your computer or smart phone.  The bible is still my favorite book as GOD is amazing!

All that I am and all that I will become before I leave this human body I give to GOD as Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.  Please remember how fragile each and every day is; live life humble and grateful for every person and animal that is in our life, as each day is indeed a gift from GOD. God is amazing! 

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

Faith Is Something We Cannot See, Feel Or Touch


Howdy,

I found this blog and had to share it select A facebook find!

This really got me to thinking this morning when things are really tough in life and I just can’t see the light beyond the darkness I rely on faith from GOD to help me.  Faith is all I had to believe I would not die but live after surviving a life threatening car accident. Faith is what I hang onto when the pain is insane and I can’t take another minute of it, Faith is what I cling to when I cannot understand in my mind how things will work out. Faith is peace for me. 

 “Faith for me is believing (knowing with no doubts) I am GODs child and GOD can restore everything, GOD in Jesus Christ precious name will give me the super natural strength to move forward when my body and mind is broken and crushed.”  GOD is amazing, we must use faith when we cannot see what tomorrow will bring.

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