Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm,
Life Is Precious and Fragile
Perhaps this is your first time reading my blog, I want to say thank you for reading my blog as I pray that my pain and suffering will in some way help you find peace, joy and come to your knees for Jesus Christ as us humans can do nothing without Jesus. Select GOD created a miracle for me to read more.
Before the accident I was healthy, happy, riding my horse three times a week for three and four-hour trail rides with other ladies I met that liked to ride horses with me I felt like we were friends as we had much in common (it is safer to trail ride with a buddy). All of these friends never ever checked in on me or called me again after the accident. Our church and close friends brought food, cards and more in to help but after six months the phone stopped ringing and then they went away too. Still GOD provided blessings with my husband standing by me and all of my angel animals.
Trauma will either break a marriage or make it stronger
Thank you Jesus trauma made our marriage of almost twenty-one years living together and fourteen years being married stronger.
Why Do People Go Away During Trauma?
We had one set of friends who did not go away and they are still our close friends but that’s it. Trauma seems to burn all the non-essential things away from our life and I experienced a period of time of spending many, many hours and years alone while my husband went to work, in my most deepest times of pain and suffering I used my Ipod with Max McLean reading the bible to me Psalms was very helpful. As I was not able to lift my bible up the pain was to great with all the broken ribs and collapsed lung. Job was the most helpful for at the end of Job GOD gives JOB double for his trouble! If you read JOB you will see Job did nothing wrong to get the pain and suffering he endured as I did nothing wrong to deserve the pain and suffering I endured and still endure each and every day from the rods in my pelvis. This is what GOD is doing for me and my husband he is giving us double for our trouble and it feels like he is rewarding us for staying in faith with Jesus as I am slowly getting stronger and stronger and the new medicine helps tremendously with the pain.
My life was it seemed to me to be perfect as I would wake up each morning like a child at christmas I could not wait to get down to the barn to see my horse and donkeys a dream come true. I had waited thirty-four years to get a horse again and I was so happy to finally have my children full-grown and get this last chance before I was too old. In a matter of seconds everything changed forever as I got into a car with a person who made a mistake ran a stop sign and a semi-truck full of cow manure smashed into the passenger door where I was sitting. I am forever disabled but I am not dead in fact in many ways I am a better person for what I have survived as I now have the ability to read an authentic human from the rest in a matter of seconds. Many long-term friends of over thirty years went away. Why? Well I guess they were weak and could not stay with me while I suffered year after year with pain and agony so they just stopped being my friend and even betrayed me at my most darkest hour. Looking back these people were not bad people they were simply weak people who could not do the right thing under trauma. “GOD burnt away all non-essential relationships with the trauma and he is bringing some amazing new people to be my friends into my life, people who are stronger than me and people who truly have depth perception of this little thing called life.”
After I almost died nothing else really mattered to me except keeping my marriage and my farm. The little distractions in life that used to bother me no longer bother me as they are non-essential.
I truly believe that my animals helped me get well as they gave me the inspiration to push hard to continue with physical therapy for three years. They pushed me to never give up and get my life back and I am forever grateful to my husband for letting me keep my farm in the midst of trauma.
What Did Grandpa Say About Friends?
My grandfather is long gone to heaven now and I miss him every single day as I do my father, I lost my father at the age of nine years old. “Grandpa would say to me, Melody if you walk with ducks you will become a duck. Be careful who you choose to be your friend.”
Earlier today I was discussing this issue with a fellow blogger and well it gave me the desire to write a post about how animals can heal our human broken heart. Animals will love us humans unconditionally 100% and never ever hurt us or let us down unlike most humans.
A nest of baby wild rabbits in my flower garden – truly a gift from GOD!
I can’t wait to see them hopping around the farm
One of the reasons I have been drawn to animals since I was a young child was I picked up on this at a very young age. “Animals can determine in a matter of seconds the character of a human being as they have a natural sixth sense that helps them determine who is a great and safe human and who is angry and dangerous.”
The bible is clear that we must put all of our trust in Jesus and not in mankind as humans will betray or disappoint us. Why is this? I think very weak humans cannot help themselves they only do what they have grown up doing or they were betrayed and hurt so deeply that they cannot love themselves.
Back to animals
Animals love unconditionally, they truly do! Animals do not ask much from us humans, shelter, food, water, love, petting and they know when we are sad, afraid, mad or tired. They know when we are happy, excited and they pick up on our energy.
Animals live in the moment they truly do. Animals enjoy each day as it comes and do not worry about what tomorrow will bring.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
