When a Neighbor Walks By...

he leads his sheep as their true shepherd

have you ever noticed how a herd of sheep will follow their shepherd...
but, run from strangers?
I see it often living among the farmers here
and it makes me think on the Lord Jesus Christ...
who is the Shepherd of His own sheep

and He did say...

I am the good Shepherd,
and know my sheep,
and am known of mine - John 10:14

...and they shall hear my voice:
and there shall be one fold,
and one Shepherd - John 10:16

how good it is to know that my path to heaven...
is led by the Shepherd of my soul

May the Lord give grace and mercy to Shepherd you on your path


  1. Hello Jeanette,
    The last two Sundays at our little home church we have been reflecting on the good Shepherd and I've enjoyed it so much. What a comfort for us to know our Shepherd is watching out for us and all we need to do is follow Him and the path that he wishes us to go. Why would we ever want to wander of on our own.
    Blessings Gail

  2. We're our Shepherd's flock of sheep and must follow Him as He will lead us into the shining path. Lovely. Thank you so much for your lovely visit too. Hugs,

  3. And I have always loved that the sheep 'know' The Shepherds voice. Thank you for such a lovely post. xo
