If for some strange, odd, random reason i love it too much to come back y'all will hear about it. but i'm pretty sure it'll just reinforce my strong liking of good ole H-town. i'll have to say goodbye to my truck for a little while- but i'll visit ole blue here and there. i wrestled with the decision after it wouldnt leave my mind- i was pretty decided that i was not gonna leave when i started having a feeling otherwisea nd then i prayed and pondered and prayed and discussed and prayed and made lists and prayed and then the answer came. so provo, utah- happy valley- i can't believe i'm saying this- but here i come. yippy skippy.....

The Lord Answers Prayers- Sammy the Hunter

This here is an answer to prayer. First hunting trip-prayed and asked the Lord that if it be His will I should get an elk. I trusted in Him, and I must say that when i had my gun ready and i had the crosshairs on this guy- this 7point bull elk-- my arms were shaking i was filled with adrenaline, and I said ok, Heavenly Father help me out here- then i counted in my head...1...2...3...(while i'm takin my time my dad was calling the elk to keep him interested in what was across the lil valley approx 170 yards away and our guide i think was thinking just shoot him!) then BOOM! shot him right through the chest- one bullet, he took a couple spasm steps and dropped to the ground. sorry if this is a bit gorey, or sad, but the beauty is that this meat will go to families that need it, not to me. That is why the Lord helped me. I was just an instrument in his hands (who found out she has a pretty good shot...) how else do you explain me only shooting this 270 twice earlier that day just to practice- then the third shot musta been the lucky it was divine intervention. I believe the Lord always takes care of us when we trust in Him. I believe animals are on this earth for the use of man, not for sport but for good reason and I think because I went in with the right attitude, I came out with a win. I'm very thankful.
My testimony is like unto Ammon's, in Alma 26:12 "Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.
and in verse 16: Therefore, let us glory, yea we will glory in the Lord; yea we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel.
