Mighty Hunter

Yesterday morning I was telling Shaun that my brother, who is always full of surprises, was out hunting for the first time ever.  Aiden's ears perked right up and he wanted to know lots of details about it.

A couple hours later he came down with a bag packed full of gear that he wanted help putting on.  He whispered to me that he was going to go hunting for deer, who would be Trot.

I helped him get his work boots and bright blue jacket on (which has a camouflage material inside) and he set off in the rain with his four-inch stick gun.


Apparently at some point he tired of the hunting and the gun doubled as a ripple-maker.

I guess it would be totally inappropriate for me to say I was disappointed he was unsuccessful in shooting the "deer".  ;)



For who is God except the Lord?
    Who but our God is a solid rock?
 God arms me with strength,
    and he makes my way perfect.
 He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
    enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
 He trains my hands for battle;
    he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.
You have given me your shield of victory.
    Your right hand supports me;
    your help has made me great.
Psalm 18:31-35
