God Created A Miracle For Me


IMG_4166

GOD, Jesus Christ and his angels spared my life in what can only be called a miracle.

April 13, 2010 I survived a life threatening motor vehicle accident when a large farm truck I call it a (semi-truck hit) full of cow manure slammed into the passenger door of the vehicle I was sitting in. Sadly, the driver of the small truck I was riding in ran a stop sign, leaving me with a life long disability in a matter of seconds.  Before the accident I was trail riding three times a week for 4 hours, I was happy and physically fit.

This disability has left me with the inability to have any core strength. This is a challenge for sure. I suffer from rib spasms, pain in my back, pelvis and my feet go numb. Still I am blessed to be here and write to you. GOD is amazing as I started the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC on Jan 1st, 2014. The first item I sold was “ON DONKEY TIME ® steel sign. 

I was flown by emergency helicopter to Critical Care Hospital in Seattle, WA with life threatening injuries; I remember praying and asking GOD to let me live, I was scared I would die.  My injuries can only be called a miracle from God to be alive, God is great, God creates miracles and I am living proof of his great work.

Injuries:

Three surgeries and blood transfusions in two days as I was dying

Eight broken ribs right and left side some in three places

Four chest tubes inserted in-between the broken ribs

Collapsed lung – Difficult to breathe

Grade V  kidney Tear – Stint Installed and removed

Grade 5: Shattered or devascularized kidney, ureteropelvic avulsions, complete laceration or thrombus of the main renal artery or vein

Broken collar-bone 

Three large pelvis screws

 Pelvic bone shattered three large screws surgically installed as the surgeon told my husband he could bend my pelvis up together like a banana.

Things I am grateful for:

I am most grateful to God for his love, strength, mercy and miracle to save my life and provide me with the opportunity to recover, the strength to endure this pain.  I am very grateful to my husband Scott! The team of doctors and nurses that worked on me as they saved my life.  Several surgeons told me I am a miracle and blessed to be alive. One doctor asked me if I believed in God and I quickly told him about deep faith in Jesus Christ. I was in intensive care for at least 7 days and the hospital for 12 days.  Finally I could go home but once I got home my life was no longer the same as I had no ability to do anything without help and twenty-four hour care in our home not set-up for a person in a wheel chair.

I am grateful to all of the people in my life that helped with our farm, my husband and a close girl friend and her close friend stayed with me day and night in the hospital taking shifts to never leave me alone in the hospital.  Food was brought into our home, prayers, cards, calls, text messages, flowers, balloons and so many visits and prayers.  In the middle of trauma God created a unique support system for us one only GOD could create.

I was unable to put any weight on my right leg or walk confined to the wheelchair for almost three months I slept in a lazy boy chair with pillows propping me up for at least four months and then the hard work began, physical therapy moving from the wheel chair to the walker, from the walker to the cane and then finally I could walk on my own.  I am grateful for my relationship with Jesus Christ as I do not believe I could have physically taken the pain without Jesus holding my right hand. I attended physical therapy three days a week for three years. I wore my equine riding gloves to lift weights. Never Give Up! Today my physical therapy is the farm. The body was made to keep moving. The only problem is when we have a disability we must rest and get up and try again. Never give up, never.

It is my hope that sharing this event will help you believe in Jesus Christ our savior for all things.  I have a gorgeous sign in my home a gift given to me by my close friend “Expect Miracles.”   I believe that nothing is too big for our God nothing…. This is my testimony for Jesus Christ and his mercy and grace. The car accident has left me with pain and a life long physical disability. Disability is real. Some disabilities cannot be seen quickly, all disabilities are real. I have learned to enjoy my life disabled. Some days are better than others. Each day is a gift from GOD as life is fragile and precious.

Grandma (98) Comes To The Farm


Grandma came to the farm one last time. This was a special, special moment for sure. I hope I can kiss the donkeys when I am 98 years old.

God Has A Better Plan


2017 – 2018 Winter has been a challenge.

The Donkey Whisperer Farm is coming back to life. We have experienced more wet and gray days with far less sunshine.  Hope is near as little signs of spring begin to emerge on our beautiful farm. This has been a long, long winter. My body does not like the cold and damp.  A big thank you to Jesus Christ as his timing was perfect. We were able to get moved into our home before winter arrived. Our farm is growing and bursting with life again all the snow and rain will produce more hay.

Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Life Is Easier With God In Jesus Christ Name


 

Here’s an important truth to remember: we don’t find God; He finds us. It’s as if you traveled to an unfamiliar neighborhood to visit a friend, and the friend got worried when you didn’t arrive and went out searching for you. You didn’t find your friend; your friend found you. Jesus told a number of stories in Luke 15 that illustrate this truth. His words in Luke 19:10 say it best: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”

 

Farm Dogs – Livestock Guarding Dogs


 

Miniature donkeys cannot defend themselves from the predator and some older and slower donkeys standard and mammoth cannot. A cougar or wolf is a serious threat.

We love living on our farm the Donkey Whisperer Farm. Every blessing is from GOD in Jesus Christ name, we thank GOD every day for this farm. Dogs are a huge part of keeping our farm working to live in peace and harmony. Predators will destroy your farm.  If you are looking for a livestock guarding dog we highly recommend Marble Peaks Anatolian and Shepherd Rest Anatolian breeders.

Please remember the Anatolian dog is not for the beginner dog owner. This breed requires a fair human leader, a fence and is a self-thinker. This breed is not for the beginner dog owner. Large fenced farms are a requirement as these dogs love to bark, run and dig!

The Anatolian is a serious dog, built to remove predators from the farm. It is our belief all animals require clean water, fences and shelter to get out of the elements. A vet is required for all animals just like people need to see a doctor. Common sense is vital to the health of your farm animals and the farm you manage. Please do your homework before making the decision to bring the Anatolian into your life. These dogs do not enjoy change, they need a fair leader just like the donkey. 

Thank you for visiting our blog!
