It is isn't it? No matter how hard things get, no matter how bumpy the road, at the end of the day, when we sit still and think through things, we still realize that God is so good to us, and we have nothing to complain about.
God says whatever you did to the least of our brethren, you did it unto him. The least mind you. Just makes the point that bigger and more important isn't always better. I find true happiness is doing what God has given you to do, and enjoying the little things along the way. It isn't where you live, how much money you have, or how much dough that pistol on your hip cost. Its talking over heart matters with a dear friend. Its carrying a small child on your back through the zoo. Its the seeing of a sunset on a desert plain, light streaking through the clouds, talking to God.......
and shooting birds.
Oh yes, life is good. :)
Bird season in open again, and it took me two weeks to get out and hunt. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait. I had my best day ever, and my brother has his best day ever, and my friend and my Dad got some as well. Noah got 9, Dad got 1, my friend got 5, and I got the limit of ten. It was my personal best, considering I fired only 27 rounds - just over one box of ammo. That's one bird every 2.7 shots. Not exactly professional, but much better than my average of roughly one bird every 5 or 6 shots - if that. So all in all, a fabulous day. Thank God for his wonderful provision and letting us use his creation for our benefit and enjoyment.
