An Unusual Sighting

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after thee
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship thee

You alone are my strength my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship thee

You're my friend and You are my brother,
Even though you are a king.
I love you more thank any other,
So much more than anything.

I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy Giver,
And the apple of my eye

This morning when I woke up I was greeted by an unusual visitor. A beautiful doe. I heard a munching noise and looked out the window and saw the doe eating some weeds. I woke up Peter and tip-toed downstairs (since the windows were open) to grab a camera. I didn't want to use a flash so I quickly retrieved Peter's iPhone and snapped a few pictures. Here are the best two pictures I was able to get. You can see it was through the screen, but oh well. Not long after I took the first shot of the doe a buck came galloping beside the house and into the backyard. It's very odd to see deer in our back yard because we're pretty close to the city and there aren't woods around. Plus our back yard is pretty enclosed. The only way in/out is by walking between our house and the neighbors or by coming down the steep hillside (where the deer later took off to because the neighborhood cat came into our yard also and scared them).
