"The mountains are never so far apart but the animals find one another." ~ American Proverb
Every time I see the above photo of the deer outside my neighbor's house, I smile. They seem to be in a confab, don't you think? What could they be talking about?
Which neighbor has the tastiest garden?
Best spots to bunk for the night?
The challenges of fawn-rearing?
It's been a great summer for deer watching. A few weeks ago, I caught this doe nursing her twin fawns in our driveway in the early morning. . .
After breakfast the fawns went exploring. . .
and ended up in the dirt pile next to our house. . .
I'm pretty sure they were the same frolicking fawns I photographed a month earlier behind our barn. . .
When I snapped this photo of one of the twin fawns, I thought of the joy of the redeemed of which Isaiah wrote:
"Then will the lame leap like a deer,
and the mute tongue shout for joy."
May the joy of the redeemed be yours.
