On my walk a few days ago,
I saw, off in the distance,
running across a big pasture,
4 HUGE dogs.
My first thought was,
"Hope they are friendly".
"Is that pasture fenced?"
Then quickly realized it wasn't.
About then, they 'ran' across the road.
Only they weren't really running,
they were gracefully 'leaping'.
Yes, it was 4 deer.
Four beautiful, deer, crossing the road in front of me.
They were running into an area of trees,
and on the other side of the trees was a pasture.
I hurried down the road a bit,
and quietly moved into the area where they had crossed.
I could see three of them, a bit of distance from where i was,
then i saw one in the trees, closer to me.
I slowly walked across the manure filled pasture,
waiting, watching, slowly moving forward,
careful not to scare the deer off,
looking for the very best picture i could get.
The deer looked up,
and knew I was there,
but did not run away.
She would eat a bit, and look up to check on me,
Then eat a bit more.
When we were done,
and as i walked my way back across
the area and to the road,
I was thinking about how i had been totally
focused on getting those pictures.
I had carefully taken every step.
Looking for the best picture i could get.
I was not thinking about anything else.
I was totally focused on one thing.
I had not one thought of the day's problems.
No anxiety, no worries.
" Lord to help me do that in my walk with You.
Help me to stay totally focused on You.
Waiting, watching, slowly moving forward
always looking for Your best."
