I woke up this morning with the clear idea that I was not going to get weird and troubled about my Dad's death. That it has been 11 years, and that I have survived his death and almost my Mothers death. Although I often have feelings of despair when I start my day, I was going to get all my errands done and get about life.

Not an uneventful life today ether. Last night for the second time I was walking with my dog and was attacked by a pit bull.

The aftermath was going to be a lot of errands. My dog had to go to the vet, and the doggie cleaners. I had to see my Dr. for an antibiotic and the day was going to be filled with running around.

Today was cloudy and dark with a pale gray sky, and it has been snowing on and off. The driving was good, the roads were clear. When I was going to pick up the dog from the cleaners, I was alone in the car, I realized how quiet it was. That type of quiet where you think you can hear molecules hitting you ear drums.

I looked to my right and coming down a large snow pilled hill was a dear. The road was a four lane residential road and I was alone on the road, and alone in the car.

As the deer approached, I realized it was huge. Quickly, I was counting the points....two, four, six, maybe more? Ok, that would mean it was at least a 12 point buck.

He was soft brown and moved with a royal dignity. His Beauty and soulfulness was breathtaking. His size showed his power. The hill, the road, and the sky he claimed as his own. He walked deliberately up to the side of the road.

I was stopped and frozen looking at him. As he stood on the road side, we locked eyes. His deep dark beautiful eyes. All knowing, all understanding. Once again in my life, time was standing still.

As I sat there I wondered how did you get here? Why are you here? Why are you looking at me? I felt like I was in the presents of something bigger than we humans.

As he started into the street and was passing my car, he stopped for a split second and I swear when he stopped he looked at me an did a quick nod of his head, and then moved across the street, up into the snow, and up the hill to safety.

I was overcome with that thing, that happens to me where I feel God is communicating to me,
"It's Ok, everything is going to be alright" I felt that the spirit of God has been gently moving me along in life.

That in his word
Psalm 150:6

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord....

That majestic spiritual animal was a gift and a message to not just me but something I wanted to share with you. "It's Ok, everything is going to be alright," that God is with us even on days when we decide to run in other directions, like I did today.

So today I have encountered the love and glory of GOD that our Father has so graciously placed within the spirit of his animal kingdom and myself.

Once again out of the despair I am filled with hope that everything is "OK." That we are following a plan made just for us.

Thank you for your friendship, for remembering my father today. For being part of my cyber world.


PS....To the dear hunters...ya , I know !!

I knew I could depend on you. Thank you so much. I hope this will help my sister in law . She is really having a hard time dealing with this right now. Maybe once she is on Find A Grave for a while and finds out just how kind and thoughtful so many people are and that they have been through the same situation she has been through this will help her.
Again thank you so very much.
