Just a thought to help start your week.
A little fuzzy due to the tree limb between me and the deer, but pretty obvious that I was being watched! Deer have extremely sensitive hearing and sight, and it’s very difficult to get a still photo of one that senses your presence. But I like to try, and this one was simply walking around in our yard.
Do you ever get the feeling you are being watched? Children pay attention to the adults. The outside world pays attention to the church and God’s people. My Dad’s mother used to thoroughly enjoy sitting on a bench in the mall and watching people. (She talked about them out loud, too, but that’s another story!)
To be watched can be an unsettling thing. But it can also be a wonderfully comforting thing to realize that someone or SomeONE is watching you! God watches you always. His eye is always on you. Nothing escapes His notice.
This week, you will never be out of His sight. And the simple reason is because you are dear to Him. Enjoy God’s creation. Love the deer, but remain ever aware of the love of One Who considers you much more dear to His heart.
Just a thought.
