I always wonder what it will be like when I reach my Eternal Home. Yes, I long to see Jesus and my loved ones, but because I love nature, I wonder what that aspect of it will be like.
As I was walking along the trail, I stopped to drop some bird seed to the right of me. When I looked back to the left, there stood a doe in the woods, ever so close to me and she was looking right at me.
I looked at her expecting for her to run, but instead of running, she came even closer. She nibbled at a couple of seeds I had dropped for the birds and then she retreated back to the woods where she stood, still gazing at me. After some people approached, she moved farther still into the woods. I also walked on.
As I walked further along the trail, I now thought it was time to turn back. This is when I saw the doe once again. She was in the woods, I called out to her and she came.
We spent some time there at the side of the trail, with her walking back and forth and nibbling in the grass. She modeled for me and allowed me to have a photo shoot. In the distance a bicycle was approaching and as it got closer, she eventually ran off into the woods.
I guess the man on the bicycle had seen our interactions and so he wanted to know if she was a friend of mine.
I felt blessed to have had this opportunity on such a beautiful winter day. It certainly did make my heart sing.
Then the lame shall leap like a deer, And the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert. Isaiah 35:6
