Oh! What a Beautiful Morning

September 1
The First Day of September
The First Day of DOVE SEASON

You may be thinking - WHAT???? But let me tell you in the Kenneth Scoggins family the excitement was right up there with Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving. It was a holiday to us. In fact, on this day we usually had more people at our house than we did all the other holidays put together. Oh, the great memories of our childhood. I can tell you that the excitement was in the air long before this day came. Our Dad was one great shot, and he always knew where the birds were. He would get his limit, plus many others. The name Sammy Brown, the local game warden, did not scare him.
I went out this morning and saw this beautiful sunrise that God blessed us with. As I was praising Him and thanking Him for the childhood He provided me with and the wonderful memories, two doves flew over my head. It was a great affirmation that all is well today on this beautiful morning. Kenneth Scoggins would be a happy man today!
