Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

How Great Thou Art

It would be easy if we could spend our lives just going downstream all the time.  Let the current push us along.  Don't exert as much effort. And get where we want to go faster.

All of us, without exception though, have a life of upstream travels. The problems and complexities of life are constantly pushing against us. We have to work harder and hard to make progress.

But there is good news!  For Christians, we have a bigger boat with a bigger motor!  It's Jesus Christ!

Those without Christ in their lives have to face all that life throws at them without that added support.  They have to depend on friends and family only to get through the tough times.  And, as you know my friends, that is simply not enough.

Jesus Christ is the secret ingredient.  But it should not be a secret. Use this analogy today to talk to others about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.  You don't have to quote scriptures.  Just tell a  story of a tough time in which a bigger boat with a bigger motor helped you make it upstream. - - Marty Kittrell
