A few weeks ago, Great Papa came for a sleep over. He wanted to get up bright and early and take Matthew turkey hunting. They scouted the woods the night before.
Matthew jumped out of bed with excitement to get ready. Papa gave him layer after layer of camouflage to put on. He was in his glory!
First, they set up the "decoy." -for those of you who don't know what a decoy is. It's basically a hot, faker of a turkey that attracts the boys. -you know much like what we see on the magazine covers.
I can't tell you how many times I walked by the window and gasped because I thought the decoys were real. Actually, if I did tell you how many times I stopped and gasped, I would embarrass myself, so I choose not to.
HUH! WHAT??!!! MATT! It's a.....oh. -never mind.
-Admit it, you all gasped because you thought it was real.
And now, the waiting begins...nothing sweeter than sitting next to your pal in the quietness of the early morning.
Be still, and know that I am God:
Staring at his creation, I can't help but think about Him.
I am enjoying these mountains because of Him.
I am enjoying the sunsets because of Him.
I am enjoying my family because of Him.
I am breathing because of Him.
there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother
And again....nothing sweeter than the quietness of the morning with your friend.
