Looking out my kitchen window, just above where we park the van, is this deer near the woods.  They certainly are getting braver and braver.  The only problem is when hunting season comes...they tend to know.  They are never around at the appointed time, well, at least not this close.  

My pictures may be a bit blurry, I am taking all through the window and screen, and I'm not one who claims to be a photographer.  I simply want the pics, no biggy for me.

They are beautiful creatures indeed.  The Master created them for our enjoyment and for our food.  He is so good in providing for our every need.  Another "Thank You," for my Eucharisteo journal. 

These lovely deer were in our backyard, as you can see, at our trampoline, IN my raised beds, which we were finished with at that moment, and almost walked right up to the back of the garage! They are so lovely.  If clothes had been on the line that might have scared them away, but nothing seemed to bother them here...

The post you see is our back porch!  That is how close they were!  Needs painted, doesn't it???  Sorry, that's what MY eye caught...

She tried to go UNDER the trampoline!  They were an enjoyment to watch.

Our greens I let get too big...she didn't eat much.

Just yesterday, we had turkeys in our front yard.  They have been in the back and side as well, but this day they meandered around, and through the driveway and yard near the creek.  Just below the walnut tree you see is our creek.  They got very close to the front porch, so wonderful.  God knows how much I love to watch His creation, He knows.

They were young Toms, you can see how short his beard is, but they were quite large turkeys.

"God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, 
with which the waters swarmed after their kind, 
and ever winged bird after its kind; 
and God saw that it was good."
Genesis 1:21

"Worthy are You, our Lord and our God,
to receive glory and honor and power; 
for You created all things,
and because of Your will they existed,
and were created."
Rev. 4:11

What wildlife is around your home?  I'd love to hear!

Are you still giving thanks?  Do you have your journal yet?  The simple act of Eucharisteo, of giving thanks in all things, can change how you view your circumstances.  Go to the link at the top, or here get a journal, and simply write, just a word...here.

Wow, that is a lot of deer! We drove by a big group of them like that along the highway on our way to church. There was a tall fence, but they just leaped right over it, no trouble. =]

They are so graceful aren't they? God is amazing at how He created "all things." Thanks for stopping by.

They are such beautiful animals. We had several that were around all the time last year but they haven't visited at all lately. Not as many as you have though!! Love those turkeys too.

I know Missy, wildlife isn't what it use to be, is it? But they are wonderful to watch, and of course to eat at times as well.
