Sun,Moon and Animals

     A little chorus I grew up singing in Sunday School and have always loved it.
    He Owns The Cattle On A Thousand Hills.

    He owns the cattle on a thousand hills,
    The wealth in every mine;

    I do think that includes Bison such as this.

He owns the rivers and the rocks and rills,
The sun and stars that shine.

Wonderful riches, more than tongue can tell -
He is my Father so they're mine as well;

He owns the cattle on a thousand hills - 
I know that He will care for me. 

The bison is one of a herd that are raised just west of my town.
The White-tailed Deer are obviously wild.In winter they tend to come out of the bushes and look for food wherever they can find it.
I don't think the sunset needs an explanation.It's just plain beautiful.
 and the moon, well that speaks for itself also.

Something To Think About:
Right from the Bible---

'For every animal of the forest is mine,
and the cattle on a thousand hills.'
Psalm 50:10


  1. Wonderful wildlife photos and a lovely hymn. I am always surprised to see a bison, and to then think about how many millions of them once roamed on the praries!

  2. Gorgeous pictures to go with this lovely song. We have not heard it before, and this bible verse matches it perfectly. God made all of these for our enjoyment, and you sure do enjoy it all!

  3. I especially like the photo of the lone deer in the third image. You had great lighting for these. It looks as if someone has put out those large hay bales for the deer. Or was there another intended recipient and the deer just claimed them?

  4. they are so wonderful to me, and I believe the word cattle means all the creatures he made, love the shot of the bison

  5. That bison picture is a treasure!

  6. I love the photo of the bison. Oh, I might as well admit that I like all of them, as well as the song.

  7. Beautiful, majestic bison. Thanks for sharing all of this beauty that surrounds you dear Ruth.

  9. Oh I love that chorus and haven't heard it in many years.
    What a promise for us.
    Beautiful photos as always. I do love the Bison ones especially.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Hi Ruth, I love the way you put the words together with the pictures. It's just great! Bison are such majestic animals. You will know one of my favorite places is Yellowstone National Park and when I visit I always hope to see the Bison. And, of course, I always enjoy your sunset/sunrise pics and that moon shot is cool too! Wishing you a happy weekend and very best regards from Seattle. John

  11. I like the verse, and the photos are wonderful.

  17. What beautiful pictures you shared today Ruth! I just love the "cattle on a thousand hills" song, and you shared it in such a lovely way paired with your photos! Your moon photo is amazing! Gorgeous picture of the bison, and of course I always love to see the sunsets, you captured a great perspective with the sun peering through the bare tree limbs! I hope you are having a lovely week :)

  18. I love that hymn. Whenever we drive on the plains of Colorado I imagine how it looked long ago when millions of bison roamed on them!

  19. So many wonderful things to delight in created by our Father...and I adore the lyrics to the song. Beautiful photos, as always!

  20. you don't see bison often. so pretty. i've been spring cleaning .. kind of fun to get all things clean and kind of wild to think how u wondering how things get to dirty when i am usually doing a nice cleaning. but i guess this is really getting the wee dark nooks and such?? take care. ( :
