Montana proudly led the holiday parade in the Black Hills of South Dakota as he remembered some of his favorite Biblical leaders.

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.”
Psalm 27:1, 5, 8 KJV

Mercy Found

bittersweet

Near his ranch, Caleb stumbled upon his former partner who had betrayed him when searching for gold. Despite his bittersweet emotions, Caleb offered his former partner food and shelter.

“Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.”
Hebrews 2:17, 18 KJV

I Will Come Again

Searching for gold in the mountains with his partner and friend, Caleb soon discovered what he treasured most.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
