Have I Just Been Given a Sign?

I was sitting outside this afternoon, writing my Newswithviews column for the week–a column about my new book, His Mercy Endureth Forever, and my Bell Mountain series in general.

I was just finishing the work when I chanced to look up: and what did I see?

A beautiful, graceful, full-grown deer trotting across the yard, only 30 or 40 feet away from my chair. She vanished around the corner of the house next door, and when I walked over to see where she was headed, I saw no sign of her. I don’t know where she went.

I took it as a sign that God was nigh, and He wanted me to know that: for which I give Him thanks.

    1. I know it’s not like this where you and a lot of other readers live, but here in the middle of Suburbia, NJ, a walk-on by a deer is a most unusual event. I mean, it wouldn’t be a big deal if I saw them all the time. It’s the rarity that made this an event for me.

      And don’t call me Les.

    1. I don’t know how they manage to live around here. Everything’s all paved over, traffic galore, nights lit up–and yet here they are.
