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.

The spring of 2010 I survived a life threatening motor vehicle accident, 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 when trying to ride or do anything physical. I suffer from rib spasms, back, pelvis and my feet go numb. Still I am blessed to be here and write to you. GOD is amazing as my husband and me started the Donkey Whisperer Farm ® the summer of 2013.

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, very painful procedure. 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. Please understand I demanded to go home and with this decision took more work. My husband Scott drove me to Seattle four times a week.

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.

GOD Keeps Bringing Me Flowers

Howdy,

Oh how I miss working in my garden it was indeed good for my soul, I’m really surprised after almost three years of neglect GOD keeps bringing me flowers.  I always did say “I am just the caretaker GOD makes the flowers grow” my body can no longer care for my garden so GOD took over for me.  Tears…..   Every time I step into my garden I feel a nudge from GOD like GOD is reminding me I am the apple of GOD’s eye as I am a child of Jesus Christ.  I need NOT worry about a thing all is in GOD’s hands.  As Psalm says GOD takes care of the birds he will take care of his children.

GOD in Jesus Christ name is amazing.  Thank you Jesus!

If you are looking for something to do to help your waist line and help your mind and soul work in a garden. Oh How I Miss Working In My Garden.

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