Is hunting a blessing? You betcha!
To have my husband gather all of the clothes I need for the day makes me smile. He is concerned I will be too cold and then hurt later on that night. Fibromyalgia and cold to do mix well together. My husband even carries my rifle into the woods when I get tired. I know, your thinking, "Wow, are you spoiled." Maybe, but I prefer to just think I am really loved and cared for. As we wake and get dressed it is still dark outside. We need a flashlight to walk back into the woods to our spot. My husband does not shine the light before him, but before my steps. He goes into the hunting cabin before me and then helps me in to my seat. We sit side by side as we watch the morning light appear. He asks, "Are you sure you are warm enough?"
We stayed in the woods all morning until hunger was waking our eager stomachs. Oh a tasty breakfast would be nice, so that is exactly what we did. I made sausage, eggs and fried potatoes and my husband heated up our tortillas and we had ourselves a brunch!! lol When our bellies were full we rested a bit before heading back out.
If you are waiting for a prayer to be answered, just wait a little longer. Be still for a bit more. Close your eyes for a minute and just take in all the sounds around you. We don't have to see the Lord to know He is here. Most of the time you hear the deer before you see him. Be still and listen for the Lord. He will make Himself known. The Lord has a beautiful whisper that speaks right to our heart. Everything in His timing. This afternoon we will go out again, just sitting and being still.
"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" Psalm 44:10
"Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord." Psalm 31:24
"Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; On You I will wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5
