    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    What a cool story LT. Even more interesting to me. Several years ago I was squirrel hunting in one of the older growth woods that comprise the family spread. I'd had a decent day, had a couple squirrels and was walking out to the pond which was about a mile away to try for a few bluegills with my pack rod before walking home. I'd never cut the woods the way I went to get to the pond. As I walked along, pretty much doing nothing I spotted a rifle, just like in the story, propped up against a tree. Browning lever action .22. It was pretty rusty, wood looked not horrible. I'm guessing it was out there a year, maybe two at the most. No idea how it got there or who it belonged to. Didn't belong to anyone who had permission to be in that woods that's for sure. I asked around a bit...nothing. I'm sure it will always remain a mystery. Gun wasn't salvageable, so I have it hanging on a peg in the barn as a "decoration".

    Very cool story. Thanks for sharing.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    I am thinking the guy is buried at that tree and his hat was on top of the rifle as a grave marker.
