Serenity Prayer Wildlife Printables

I was inspired by a friend’s request to create a poster featuring the Serenity Prayer and one of my photographs from our wildlife habitat and bird sanctuary.   I thought it was a terrific idea, but I struggled to decide upon just one version.  There were too many photographs to choose from, and they were all my favorite.  So I made several versions and asked for feedback on our Facebook page.  That was no help because everyone had their favorite, too!  Lol.  So, I went ahead and made them all available as a downloadable/printable poster.

Click here to download the entire set of printable images, including the fox, flowers, butterfly, bird, woodpecker, and bunny.  Use your color printer to print your favorite.  Or, print them all!  Frame them, laminate them, share them, give them… and enjoy!  Consider this my gift to you for your support and encouragement of our efforts.

Cheers!

The Savage Reality of Survival – One Deer’s Legacy

Share This:

Always on the lookout for new and exciting discoveries on our wildlife habitat and bird sanctuary, my husband and I recently took a stroll around the property.  Our neighbor had invited his artist friend to collect a dead dear off his property just a few days earlier, (a gorgeous 8 point buck that had died behind an abandoned trailer), and this news inspired us to also take a look around.

We were awe-struck with what we found, not to mention humbled, as our WILD life reminded us that LOSS of life is often required to sustain the CIRCLE of life.

We quietly and reverently observed the bones we found scattered inside and just beyond the outskirts of our property line: first we saw a leg, then a second leg, then the rib cage and head to what appeared to be a second deer – all picked perfectly clean.

 

As I took photographs, I celebrated the legacy this deer left behind and the sacrifice of it’s life for the prosperity of other wildlife.  And I became deeply aware of all our habitat signifies – not only the grace of Creation but also the savage reality of survival, and I marveled at the beauty of both.
