Opinion

Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Are you like a rock?

I was working in one of our horse pastures recently and saw a rock.  Now, there’s nothing extraordinarily different about this rock.  It’s just a rock that’s lying in our pasture.  I found it by tripping over it.

I stepped back and looked at the rock after I tripped on it.  And for some reason, I started thinking about that rock.  You know, a horse, galloping and playing in the pasture, could step on that rock and twist an ankle or bruise a hoof.  Or, I could run over it while mowing the pasture and nick and tear the mower blade.  That one rock keeps grass from growing in that spot in the pasture, grass that could nourish the horses.

Now if one rock makes that much difference just by hugging the ground in our horse pasture, how much difference can one person can make?  More specifically, how much difference can you make?  Choose today to make a positive difference just by being you.  You don’t have to do anything extraordinary.  Just choose to be positive where you are as you listen to life and make a positive life, not just a living.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
Many times when I pick up my bow, I’m reminded of my first shotgun purchase as a sixteen year old. I’ve often said that I went into that store as a boy and left feeling like a man. My bow gives me an equal amount of manly pleasure. It’s not that I feel overtly prideful; it’s more about being able to use this complex and even quirky piece of equipment in the pursuit of deer. The bow is a hunting tool like no other. It’s made up of many different parts and accessories that must work in perfect harmony in order to perform properly. Each part must be synchronized with the other. Even though the bow itself is the main element, without lesser components like the sights and the rest, it cannot do the job.
