As the Deer

"As the deer pants for flowing streams, 
so pants my soul for you, O God."

Psalm 42:1 ESV

[I do realize these are elk, not deer. It's the photo I had]

This weekend I am including a Sunday short story, "Ellie's Roses" - a short short, under 500 words.
Click here to link to my short story blog. It relates a little bit to deer.


  1. One can imagine the deers chest rise and fall; there are times the heart beats fast in pursuit of that safety in His presence. Beautiful.

  2. Hi Maureen ~ I'm loving that cool brook wending its way through the trees! And, oh yes, the Spirit refreshes in such a powerfully beautiful way ...


  3. Elk get thirsty too :) A favorite verse... how the spirit refreshes.

  4. I've seen this verse several times recently and love how each person has shared. Beautiful images. I live in a town called Elk Grove so the fact that you used a picture with elk made me smile. Blessings.

  5. I sure loved this!!! And one of my favorite verses, favorite songs. Just burst into my heart.
