Doe, A Deer, A Black Tailed Deer…

We’ve seen lots of white tailed deer before but these are the first black tailed deer we’ve noticed.

They were quite comfortable in our back acreage even with my Dear close by. One was more skittish. They found some bushes in our brush that they enjoyed nibbling on. We are happy for them to enjoy the plants in the brush and not our flowers.

We had an amazing sound and light show from God last night. Thunder and lightning, oh my. I pulled up the shades in the livingroom and sat in the darkness watching the lightning light up the sky and light up our house and then listening to the sound of thunder. We had some good downpours, too, so I’m all caught up on watering for at least a day.

I couldn’t catch any of the lightning flashes. Thunderstorms are fun if they don’t spark any fires.

Update: I just read this report from Stevens County Management:

If you’re wondering about the lightening numbers- the maps show a total of 28,630 Cloud Flashes and 3,499 Cloud to Ground strikes for the 24 hour count ending 5 am this morning! Data source: ENTLN

Some good words for Wednesday…

“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful!” Joshua 1:8

Spurgeon: To get the nourishment out of a text, turn it over and over in your mind, meditate upon it, pull it to pieces word by word! Scripture meditation is the strong meat on which holy men are nourished. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up into your very soul, until it saturates your heart! The more you read the Bible, and the more you meditate on it–the more you will be astonished with it!

  1. What pretty property you have. The deer adds to the beauty as long as it doesn’t nibble on your flowers and plants. ~smile~

  2. The deer look very content. The thunderstorm sounds cozy (and I’m thankful there was no damage). I love to drift off to sleep listening to the rain.

  3. That’s very unusual for deer to allow humans that close, Ellen, I know your Dh enjoyed being that close to them, they are fascinating for sure, the deer around here are so easily spooked! I have never seen blacked tailed deer!
    I too enjoy watching the skies light up with lightning, my, you all certainly had a lot of strikes, that’s amazing.
    We finally got some rain and relief from the extreme heat and drought! thanks for sharing.
    Thank you for those amazing words of encouragement. One of the greatest blessings my dh and I have experienced since memorizing scripture, has been letting the Word saturate our very soul, causing us to meditate more.

  4. You have lots of interesting visitors at your place!
    I enjoy watching a thunderstorm too. Storms/rain at night are the best! My late father-in-law called overnight rains “a poor man’s rain.”
    “Good words” for sure! Thank you for sharing those!
