I didn't expect them to be there.
Running up a village street, a deer crossed my path. And another just stood there looking at me.
The daylight of this time of year is a blessing after season-long darkness in the early morning.
They didn't frighten me because the light helped me to see.
More steps and I thought about more of what He provides.
So unexpectedly He delights my path.
I encourage my friends today to unwrap the unexpected. To see the blessings.
And I remember this time *right now* is necessary. It isn't about where I'm going, it's where I'm living.
Seeing the ways He works in my heart and through every crevice of my life is a miracle.
The ways He moves and speaks astound me.
Perhaps the first time in my life I'm truly beginning to live by faith as I See evidence of Him.

Unscripted and unedited...
Without worrying if it's just right or not."
