The Path

The Path

[Note:  The photos that follow were taken with my phone, not the good camera.  I know I can do better, but they’ll give the flavor of today’s walk down the trail.]

Now that I’m retired I take a long walk pretty much every morning, pretty much along the same path.  Even though I’ve fallen into what may seem like a boring routine, today’s walk came with some surprises.  

It started with the first snow of the season! 20181109_065230

I saw more deer today than I have in a long time.  Sometimes they seem almost tame.


My goal today, laugh if you must, was to take a selfie with a deer along the way.


What about turkeys?  I’ve seen them from time to time, but I never expected this!


Today it seemed as if there was something new, something unexpected around every turn in the path, deer, turkeys, splashes of fall color, not ready to give in to inevitable winter blasts.

I had a great walk… in the snow, with the deer, and the turkey’s and fall’s last lingering colors.


Praise to the Creator, the maker of deer and turkeys and snow and by whose providential care we walk our daily paths wherever they may lead.  Today’s gift…
