"As the Deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God... "
This deer doesn't seemed scared in my back yard, yet she is attentive. Since I've sprayed deer repellent (predator urine) she no longer stops by. In the wild, deer are so flighty, ever vigilant and gone at the least scent of a predator...
But they need water... It's life or death... So risks have to be taken... Her predators will not give her a pass.
For that matter neither will ours. There is risk involved in pursuing God's water but we need it so we take the risk...
God let it be that way.
What a thought.
