Coming home


Leann Harris here. Yesterday, I was driving home from Austin with 3 friends. We had been at the capitol. It was dark and we'd just finished our Kolaches which we bought at the Czech stop. Suddenly, I saw a brown blur, then the passenger side mirror was dislodged from the car and the buck staggered off the road.

The car didn't veer, only slowed down a bit, but no one was hurt. We don't know what happened to the deer, but we prayed for God's safety and blessings on us as we traveled. That was shown to us. No one was hurt and minor damage to the car.

I could only thank God for his mercy. Since that time, I've talked to numerous people who had the same experience, but with different results.

My brother had a similar experience. He'd spotted the buck and slowed down, and the deer still charged his car. Broke out the window. Then the buck backed away and shook off the blow. Glad y'all were OK!

Glad you all were okay

I just got word from my friend who drove. Apparently, the buck bounced off the car multiple times and there was a lot more damage than we first thought. It's more a miracle than we knew.
