The Fawn

Yesterday Caleb and I walked a new trail at the John J. Audubon Center, and while we saw a few beautiful birds and flowers, we saw a fawn that made the hike worth it. I had spotted a few deer, but couldn’t get close enough to take a good picture. Then this fawn came, and almost walked right up to us. It was such a surreal moment, and definitely one that I will remember for a long time.

As a Flower

I am as a flower fading fast,
trying to blossom while I last.
I am as a wave tossed and lost in the sea,
but still God makes notice of me.
He listens to my every need
and takes heed of every plea.
Who am I but a girl who’s searching and poor?
Still He lifts me up and makes me more.
Though sometimes I feel low and next to nothing,
in Him, I become something.
I am as a flower fading fast,
and I will serve Him while I last.”
