My Clementine, my female doe, met an untimely, violent death this week.clementine

I am heartsick and guilt ridden. And I have felt revengeful, angry, and then back to sad and guilty. I know predators kill, but I also know “in the beginning” it wasn’t so for God created and “It was good.” But because of sin, we have death and there lies my ultimate guilt. There is also hope, though.

The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together;
and a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze;
their young shall lie down together;
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.  Isaiah 11:7-6 ESV

Clementine also left behind a litter of kits – four babies who had only known one day of life. We are trying to keep them alive but their chances of survival are very low. We will feed them and keep them warm and hope.
