beautiful view...great food...16 deer... good coffee..rainbow!.
Last week Ray and I saw two deer run across the road in the park and we were hoping to see some again for Jenny and Rachel to see, and boy, we got way more than we were hoping for! At first we just saw a few in the woods and pulled the car over to get out and have a better view, when they started walking towards us. We were at the edge of the camping area, and apparently many deer come to graze there because people sprinkle grain for them to eat. Yesterday as we looked with astonishment, deer after deer emerged from the wood to cross the road, and go right past us to get some of that grain. My husband even got a few of them to eat from his hand! We went to the campground store to buy some bread (whole wheat) and drove back to see if the deer were interested in our meager offerings , and they were! They surrounded the car and one ate out of Ray's hand! We stopped counting at 16! 16 deer within reach of us with their beautiful "doe eyes" and graceful ways! After an hour or so of this we left to head towards home and stopped for some coffee at Jamokas in Boaz and it was actually delicious! Wow, what a day! Then we saw a rainbow in the sky from the road!
I can't help but feel that God gives us these little blessings to bring us some joy or just a smile on our faces. After all, we are so happy to do something sweet for our friends, family, kids or grand kids and we especially love seeing the delight they get from these things! I guess, it is something that He has put in our hearts that gives us a tiny glimpse of heaven!
