My sister and I got a rubber buck target from our parents this Christmas, and we have had so much fun strengthening our archery skills (and arm muscles) these past couple of days. I really love our new target because it is so much more exciting than the paper targets that we had used in the past. However, this is the closest I will ever get to a buck with my bow because I think killing a real animal would be too emotionally hard for me. Fishing doesn’t bother me, but I have absolutely no doubt that hunting big game would. Maybe this will change in the future, but I will only use targets for now.
Have you been hunting before? Do you enjoy archery? I hope that you all had an amazing Christmas!
I had to share this lovely post by Rêveuse. If you like this, be sure to stop by and like the original post before liking my re-blog. Thanks!
“Self-respect is about having the courage to stand up for yourself when you are being treated in a manner that is less than what you deserve.
People will give you as much respect as you give yourself. Self respect is everything.
Don’t lower your standards for anyone or anything. No relationship is ever worth sacrificing your dignity or self respect for.
Never compromise your values to please other people. Believe that you are worthy of being treated well.
When someone treats you like you are just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Don’t give part-time people a full time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle anything less than you deserve.”
Don’t settle for less than you deserve. — rêveuse

Yellowstone is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my entire life… Neither pictures nor words can describe how spectacular it is, and it is something that you must witness yourself to truly grasp the wonders of Wyoming. I was able to gain a better understanding of how powerful the forces of nature are and how insignificant I am when compared to the ‘big picture’. GOD has created such diverse, beautiful world, and I am so thankful to have gotten a better glimpse of it. I will never forget that special place where stars lit up the sky… snow capped mountains smiled in the distance… crystal clear lakes shimmered… wild buffalo grazed in the distance… and moose, elk, deer, bear, and mountain goats all welcomed us with warm hearts. I was very sad to depart, and I am already missing the magical state of Wyoming.
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
“For this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
Don’t ever forget what Jesus did for you this very day…
Be sure to pray this Good Friday.
“I can’t control your behavior;
nor do I want that burden…
but I will not apologize for
refusing to be disrespected,
to be lied to, or to be mistreated.
I have standards; step up or step out.”
This is such a great quote, so I figured that I would post it with this great photo! This was taken a week ago during a photo shoot with the wonderful photographer, Richard Jean-Louis! I am looking forward to continue working with him in the future, and I am excited to share more of this shoot very shortly!
