Wait on His best

It was only about 30 minutes after daylight when a doe and spike showed up under my tree stand. I had planned on putting some meat in my freezer and this doe would have been perfect, but I just couldn’t make myself let go of an arrow. I watched, waited, contemplated, and analyzed and still […]

The Grand World of New Eyes! 

Whoa!  I am experiencing something I never knew could be so fascinating!  I see with incredibly new lenses!  I can see again! My second cataract surgery was completed in early August.  I was in the land of recovery for the next four weeks.  Yet I could immediately tell you that I can’t take in the […]

Visitors and Memories

Visitors and Memories

Don’t know about you, kind reader, but I’m reeling from too many days in full-bore, too-much-to-do, holy-cow-autumn-is-approaching-WAY-too-fast mode… Tereza here, and it’s my turn again to regale you with stories from Dancing Rabbit Land, a wonderful place where the living is… well, perhaps not so much easy as it is meaningful. A place where the […]


September!  I won’t even ask where August went.  This month will be filled with football, Grandparents Day, first day of Autumn, fall decorating, and watching those busy hummingbirds. They will be traveling, and will be in need of extra energy.  You will need to keep fresh sugar water in those feeders.  I don’t fill the […]

Survival Items

I think every outdoorsman likes to think he could survive in some extreme conditions or circumstances when others could not. I often give thought to different scenarios when I’m outdoors. I think about what I would do or what supplies I would like to have if I were suddenly stranded. My first thought is a […]

Cut to the Chase? Yep. 

Dear Chris, A couple among us began immediately to speak of The Holy Spirit, just as soon as we were all finished with breakfast, like as if the need for urgency was important, but not imperative. They sat close to each other because they were just newly engaged! Yep! a pair of OLD TIMERS, two […]



Howdy y’all. Ben here, with another field report from our little post-petroleum oasis here in the rolling hills of Northeast Missouri. As I tingle from the sunburns of the recent past I am simultaneously nipped by the cold of autumn approaching. Transition engulfs our environment. Clusters of ripening honey locust pods hang heavy on the […]

Things Often Go Right Because Other Things Went Wrong

Surely a pattern plays out in front of us day by day, week by week, into decade by decade.  That formation is the fact that often the rough stuff in our paths is there for a purpose.  It is useful to help us to grow up.  You may have noted that a lot of OTHER […]
