Thankful Thursday: Deer Crossing

I decide everyday this year I want to choose something I was most thankful for that day. I'm hoping by focusing on something I am thankful for each day, I will become more grateful and appreciative towards all the blessings I receive from The Lord and His provision in my life.

I was driving down the long country roads to pick up my grandmother, Babcia. I saw a deer crossing sign. Therefore, I began to drive very cautiously in fear that a deer would jump out and I would have to either slam on the brakes and the car behind me would hit me (since they were following too close) or I could hit the poor deer. With those two scenarios on my mind I reduced my speed hoping 2 things: the car would pass me up and I would be ready to safety stop if a deer did appear. However, a deer didn't appear, a hog did with her piglets. She was getting ready to cross the street with her young. So I pressed my breaks to slow down to a stop to allow them to cross but she ran away from the street and her piglets were quick to mirror her actions and stayed close to their mother for protection. This moment was amazing to witness and it made me think what if we mirrored Jesus in such a way? How amazing would it be to quickly mirror Him in our lives with no question about it? I'm so thankful for God teaching me things through His creation. On that note, here is my thankful list for this past week:

1. Jennie Allen giveaway by Lore Ferguson
2. Wildlife
3. My pastor
4. Time with family
5. Cooking for others
6. Babcia
7. My husband's cooking❤

What has God shown you this past week? Are you grateful for His providence in your life?
