We had crashers at our Deacon's meeting tonight.

A herd of deer. Perhaps as many as 15 suddenly wandered up to the front of the church. We have deer on the property, but they're usually skittish and we certainly never see so many in one place.

They strolled up as we were asking for God's guidance to help some of our small body of believers with the trials they are facing.

It was only a momentary distraction, but a valuable one.

We bow our heads in prayer, and close our eyes.

Tonight it seemed like we received a gentle nudge to remember that sometimes we should keep our eyes open too.

God may surprise you.
