Saturday Snapshot

I wanted to share this picture that sums up the beauty of living in the boonies.

Yesterday morning, I was in my bedroom doing a quick workout while my girls and three friends were running around in the yard and riding bikes in the driveway.  I happened to glance out of the widow between songs and I noticed this young buck standing at the edge of the lawn.


Despite the noisy and active children, the dogs and cats in the yard and the occasional slamming of the front screen door, the deer quietly stood in the shadows for quite a while, just watching. He seemed genuinely curious.

Eventually, he calmly slipped into the woods and continued his journey.  It was a beautiful moment that made me smile.

I feel so blessed to live where we do, surrounded by trees and chattering birds. I’m thankful for encounters with God’s beautiful creatures and a moment to stop and simply observe.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
