A Happy Deer At The Beach!

This was shared on Facebook. I enjoy the beach and deer, but never saw one doing this. Seems to enjoy himself/herself.

“As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God?” (Psalms 42:1-2 NASB)

Scripture Alphabet of Animals: The Hart and Hind, by Harriet Cook.

She shares the different names for this type of critter from our Lord and the many verses that mention them. Sometimes called Hart, Hind, Fallow-deer, and Roe-buck. Today, just Deer is a more common name for them.

Here another video on YouTube:

Also, Isaiah 35:1-6 tells us more about the deer leaping to encourage the lame that they will also one day leap for joy.

“The wilderness and the desert will be glad, And the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; Like the crocus It will blossom profusely And rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, The majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They will see the glory of the LORD, The majesty of our God. Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Say to those with anxious heart, “Take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance; The recompense of God will come, But He will save you.” Then the eyes of the blind will be opened And the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, And the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. For waters will break forth in the wilderness And streams in the Arabah.” (NASB)

Are You A Birdwatcher Or A Bug Watcher?

When you go birdwatching, do you get side-tracked by other critters? It is easy to do. Since the Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ created all of them, they are all amazing and enjoyable to examine up close.

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” (Genesis 1:21-22 NKJV)

“Then God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind’; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:24-25 NKJV)

Then again, maybe Woodstock is trying to copy the behavior of the Widowbirds:
