This is being added because I have obviously offended many vegans, non-hunters, vegaterians and such with a graphic photo of myself while up at deer-camp. That has been removed so as not to hurt anyone elses feelings. I am truly sorry I hurt anybody.
I do believe however that people deserve an answer and so I have composed my position. I welcome all vegans and vegetarians to my page, but understand I don’t welcome your critisism and judgement.
Hunters too are welcome, but I do not
agree with poaching or hunting tactics which are not humane.
I support the NRA. I support the DNR.
I support the 2nd Amendment. I believe in the conservation of land and animals, but
letting animals run rampant over the land leaves nothing for the weed eater to eat and animals too will soon starve.
I believe the BIBLE is the inspired WORD OF GOD. It is my authority
And my defence.
II Timothy 3:16.
I believe you can be “spiritual”
without knowing God. There are many spirits, so be careful.
I know the Word of GOD sanctioned animal meat as suitable diet for man (Jews) AFTER EDEN.
One acceptable meat was the deer. Lev. 11:1-4.
God never told hunters to
become vegans, but St. Paul
did call “herb eaters WEAK
in the faith” Romans 14:24
I know the Word says GOD
fashioned “animal skins” as covering for the nakedness of man after his sin. Genesis 3:21.
Again, innocence covers guilt.
The leaf thing was man trying
to hide his own guilt. Genesis 3:7
I know GOD accepted the shed blood of innocent animals to attone for the sins of man. Leviticus 6:24-30
I know WITHOUT the shedding of blood there IS NO remission of sins…Hebrews 9:22
I know GOD would prefer CONTRITE HEARTS
over the slaughter of animals
Mic 6:6-6, Isaiah 1:1-4,
Hosea 6:6 but since that ain’t gonna happen He has accepted the innocent blood of his slaughtered SON instead.
The LAMB OF GOD WHICH TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD. John 1:29and Rev 12:11
I know the Lamb of God has ushered in a new covenant,
One which frees us from the LAW
and saves us by GRACE instead. Ephisians 5:8.
I know mercy triumphs over justice. Romans 14:
I believe GOD can teach us all LOVE FORGIVENESS AND TOLERANCE.
I know I will be misunderstood and persecuted because MY LORD was.
The Lord is my only judge and to Him alone will I answer.
I Peter 3:15

How sad the heart that loves but One
And never again when that is done.
but the heart that takes it’s wounds in stride
and reaches out - arms open wide -
to let yet more loves come inside
and stay - remaining days there to abide -
Ah! That heart is rich indeed.
And tho it knows that it will bleed
it lives but to fulfill such need.
Peeps, I owe it to your memory
to let my heart forever be
a place of warm security
to other little lads and lassies
….but not just now…
For my heart SO aches as it must review
memories of times spent just with you.
I cannot love yet. Not just now.
And so I set with furrowed brow;
unable to feel the wind in my hair
or smell of flowers on the breeze.
Oh what my mind is putting me thru
with such painful, lonely feelings like these!
Forgive me my neglect sin.
What I wouldn’t give to hold you again!
But Daddy and I had made a pact
and promised each other that we wouldn’t,
but if I ever see a face like yours - I know I couldn’t
resist the need to take her home
and make my heart her forever own.

ROOM IN YOUR HEART
Sorrow fills a barren space; you close your eyes and see my face and think of times I made you laugh, the love we shared, the bond we had, the special way I needed you - the friendship shared by just we two. The day's too quiet, the world seems older, the wind blows now a little colder. You gaze into the empty air and look for me, but I'm not there - I'm in heaven and I watch you, and I see the world around you too. I see little souls wearing fur, souls who bark and souls who purr born unwanted and unloved - I see all this and more above - I watch them suffer, I see them cry, I see them lost, I watch them die. I see unwanted thousands born - and when they die, nobody mourns. These little souls wearing fur (Some who bark and some who purr) are castaways who - unlike me - will never know love or security. A few short months they starve and roam, Or caged in shelters - nobody takes home. They're special too (furballs of pleasure), filled with love and each one, a treasure. My pain and suffering came to an end, so don't cry for me, my person, my friend. But think of the living -
those souls with fur (some who bark and some who purr) - And though our bond can't be broken apart, make room for another in your home and your heart.

High up in the courts of heaven today a little dog angel waits; with the other angels she will not play, but she sits alone at the gates.
"For I know my master will come" says she, "and when she comes she will call for me."
The other angels pass her by As they hurry toward the throne, And she watches them with a wistful eye as she sits at the gates alone.
"But I know if I just wait patiently that someday my Master will call for me."
And her master, down on earth below, as she sits in her easy chair, forgets sometimes, and whispers low to the dog who is not there.
And the little dog angel cocks her ears and dreams that her master's voice she hears.
And when at last her Master waits outside in the dark and cold, for the hand of death to open the door, that leads to those courts of gold,
she will hear a sound through the gathering dark, a little dog angel's bark.
