We are certainly blessed to live where we are in the woods in Southeast Wisconsin. Today as we were admiring the beautiful birds in our yard, two sweet and silent fawns walked along the side of our house sniffing and nibbling at the foliage. Of course, I was much happier to see them nibbling at the bushes and trees we don’t care about rather than devouring our arborvitae that they did last winter. After spending a fortune on those trees and all the work that comes with planting and watering them, it was quite frustrating to see them turned into large green Q-tips before our eyes!
The upside to the devastating financial situation we’ve been going through is a renewed sense of enjoyment in the simple things. A couple of years ago, before everything happened, I would not have paid a lot of attention to the birds, deer and other wildlife on our property–but now I look at them and enjoy how God provides for each one of them and I know He continues to provide for us.
