a gaze

just five miles down the road...and there i was, face to face with two deer. ok, so not literally face to face, but close enough for one of the deer and me to look into each others eyes. deer are very common in this part of the united states, but there was just something about that moment that made me breath a little deeper and feel the presence of god. as i settle into my new community, i am exploring places i have never visited. one place i had always heard of, but had never been to was eagle creek park. once i discovered it was just down the road my apartment complex is on, i decided to go for a walk/jog on the trails on my first monday off. beautiful, and what a blessing to come along the two deer on the path. i am so excited to be in indiana for fall, and to have great trails near my home.
