A Pair of Whitetail Deer in the Woods
A Pair of Whitetail Deer in the Woods - The two of us and the two of them came upon each other as we were walking along. The deer were kind enough to pose for this and a few other pictures before they went on their way. They have as much right to be here and enjoy their lives as we do. And as we thanked God for this encounter, we recalled a Bible passage (Philippians 4:12) and realized how much it applied to this meeting. "Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things." At this time we had a peek into the "peaceable kingdom", where "they will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." (Isaiah 11:9). Whitetail Deer photo by Frank L. Hoffman.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
