A soft breeze rustles the thick leaves on the abundance of trees. The grass is dark green and lush, and the Azaleas are in full bloom basking in the warm sun.
The woman goes to her garage and picking up the small bucket she fills it with corn kernels and smiles. They’ll get their dinner today, she thinks.
Donning her boots she steps out the back door and wades through the wet grass to the “plate” she has hanging on a shepherd’s hook and pours the corn, filling it.
Later that evening, just before the sun recedes, she excitedly goes to her back deck and takes a seat to wait.
Kicking up her feet and settling down, a Man steps up and asks, “May I join you?” She smiles, pats the seat of the rocking chair beside her, and the Man takes a seat.
They chat softly for a few minutes and suddenly she exclaims, “Here they come!”
Gracefully, almost as though they are gliding, three sleek coated tan doe deer walk across the upper part of her yard and are heading for their dinner of corn.
The woman smiles broadly. “Oh how I love seeing them,” she whispers to the Man.
“I know.” He replies.
“They are so beautiful and so graceful. Oh look! Two are eating together. Those are the twins; Dolly and Molly.” She whispers pointing to the two younger deer.
The Man smiles broadly. He loves the joy she is feeling.
“You had one you could walk up to last year. You named her Betsy.” The Man states.
“How did you know that!?” she asks surprised.
“I am the I Am. I created them.” Then adds, “And you.”
Shocked, “Oh my gosh! You’re…”
The Man cuts her off.
He smiles at her and states, “It was nice sitting with you. Enjoy the deer.”
“But wait!” she whispers as He walks off around the corner of her home.

Having completed my college years I made my career as a flight attendant for a major airline. Many years later I retired. Georgia is my home since 1968.
I met, married, and buried my husband here. Very soon after my husband went to be with the Lord, “God rattled my cage” and I became a follower of Christ.
I have devoted my life to Him. He has done much within me, for me, and through me.
In other words, He transformed my life.
I am an abuse survivor. I am the founder & C.E.O. of Elah Ministries, Inc. A non-profit 501c3 ministry that offers hope, healing, and deliverance to hurting souls. I have ministered to both men and women survivors of childhood sexual abuse and have seen the grace of God work mightily in both individual lives and through the support groups I have led.
Along the way by God’s grace I became an author. I do speaking engagements, book signings, prayer ministry, and whatever the Lord calls me to do.
There are times I need to “run away” and my favorite place for relaxation is a beach with ocean waves rolling in, the sun, sea air,
seagulls swooping down for the potato chips I offer, my swimming suit filled with sand, and a good book. It calms my soul.
