A Summer Gift From God!!!

During the summer when I am out of school, I love to walk in the mornings at a local park near my home. My girlfriend, Nancy and I walk together each morning. On Thursday morning, Nancy couldn't walk, so I made the rounds at the park by myself. The walking area at the park is a paved road that is cut through the woods and the scenery is so pretty. I love to walk and take in the beauty of the surroundings. When I walk with Nancy, we talk 90 miles an hour (imagine that!) and solve all the world's problems in the process.

On Thursday morning I was walking by myself, and it was quiet and peaceful in the park. I looked up ahead of me and a Mother deer was coming out of the woods right in front of me. She was just quietly walking across the road as if I wasn't even there. I couldn't believe that she was that close to me!

All of a sudden 2 babies came out of the woods behind her. They were so tiny and precious! They had white spots on their backs and it looked like they were not very old. A mother deer and her twins!!! What a sweet sight to see on my early morning walk. It was as if God was giving me a present on this gorgeous summer day and reminding me that He is the one who created this beautiful world that we live in.

Seeing that deer with her babies put a bright spot in my day! I was amazed that she was not afraid of me and brought her babies that close as I was walking by. I call this type of thing a "God Moment." Times when God speaks to us through simple, everyday events in our lives to get our attention and show His love for us.

Do you have "God Moments" in your life that bring joy to your day? If so, rejoice in them and share those moments with others!

Have a wonderful day!

Love & blessings, Melinda


  1. awww....that's so sweet! good thing you could snap a quick photo:)

  2. I had an amzing God moment today. Feel free to read about it at

  3. So sweet...we had some deer in our yard last night...I took a picture but it was thru the window so not sure how good it will be...we have to try to keep the dog quiet which isn't easy.

  4. What a glorious site! I think I have God moments each and every day. I just have to remember to take the time to enjoy them!:-) Thanks for your kind comments for my son. He is doing well. I think he is feeling better because he is complaining about being bored not about being in pain. Thank you for your prayers and concern. Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Oh how fortunate that you had your camera! We got home from vacation tonight and I saw some deer while we were gone. I absolutely love things like this as I truly believe they are gifts from God.

  6. Morning Melinda! I had a moment like this as well on the way to work last Thursday! We always see deer off in the fields and sometimes too close to the road at 6am. The sun was peeking out and off in a field was a mother and her tiny baby. The grass was almost covering the small thing but it was just so peaceful to see! Made me appreciate and look at the beauty on both sides of the road all the way to work! Then I arrived there and that was the end of that!!!lol just kidding! Hope you have a peaceful and beautiful week! Sincerely, Jeannette
