God’s Messages

Sunday afternoon I took a break between different passages of my work.  Bundling up to venture into the cold of what remained of winter, I walked for blocks not far from home.  My mittened hands were pocketed while breathing in piercing cold air of wonder.  Walking through woods of barren trees and trickled frozen streams, I prayed to God for guidance.  New forks in the road presented themselves.  That’s what life is all about……..

There in the crunchy snow were sets of deer tracks, two by two, side by side.  I followed them.  Curious, I wasn’t sure where they would lead.  Would I catch a glimpse of awe ahead of me?  A doe with her young nestled closely by her side for warmth, or a buck guarding his family amidst the confines of his openness? The deer tracks made me think of life, I guess.  Oddly, they came to no end, yet somewhere God’s creatures were hidden within.

Upon returning home, I stretched upon my bed with a tablet upon my lap.  There, I was able to view our little forest land from a large bay window while tapping keys and moving a mouse.  It’s important to see the outdoors to energize me.  The sun shined through window blinds, so brightly it lit the room, leaving patterned shadows of cabbage roses against the walls.

After a moment or two, I looked up from my laptop to glance outside.  Snowflakes fell full and fast down from the sunlit blue sky.  Such a beautiful sight!  It was as if God was sifting powdered sugar over one of my grandmother’s sweetened cakes from long ago.  At that second, I couldn’t believe it, but it was true!  Not one, nor two or three or four, but even more……….A whole herd in fact gently bounded by my view.  A tall, strong buckled the way, five points or more.  They danced and pranced proudly, maneuvering through the path of woods beyond the sight of my window.

Its “0” degrees today, but I dare not complain.  The sun is shining brightly against a Delft blue sky, leaving marshmallow cream snow upon the ground.  Deer tracks can be seen near my patio.  Messages from God to be thankful for hints of the future……….

    • No, Pete, I am happy for you, but so jealous; ha, ha! Yes, I would love it. Someday, maybe I will get to go. Hot chocolate is my favorite. Oddly enough, I have an appointment with my vocal doctor today. As an added incentive, my husband takes me to, “The Chocolate Bar,” near downtown. “Hot Chocolate” is what I order. They have about four different kinds. The best!! 🙂


  1. Beautifully written, Kim. How are your vocal lessons coming along? I hope better than the last time we spoke. I know it’s difficult, all the things bestowed upon us, but you know and I know that God has his plan for each and every one of us. I hope your appointment goes well today and enjoy your hot chocolate. You’ll be singing at the top of your lungs in no time. Keep up the hard work and have a great day, my dear friend.:)
    Peace, love, and hugs,
    Wild Thang:)


    • All good news! Saw new pictures showing much improvement. All the time & hard work is beginning to pay off. Doctor thinks another month or two….so tired, but light at the end of the tunnel. Much to be thankful for. Blessings, “WildThing!”
