I (Becca) live on the west side in Colorado Springs, which means wildlife are a-plenty. This morning, a large buck (aka male deer bigger than your dog) stood outside my window. I could have touched him if it wasn’t for the wall between us. He looked calm, yet fully aware of everything around him. Another friendly creature that loves my yard is the magpie. As it swooped in towards the deer, I was sure that buck would show the bird who’s bigger. Much to my surprise, the bird landed on the back of the deer as if to say “Hello neighbor.” And the buck didn’t mind at all!
The scene of this just drew me into worship, in awe of our Creator God. Fully in control. Full of mercy, strong yet gentle. We can be like the bird, and find rest in our God as He “quiets us with His love”.
