Sabbath Keeping

 ~ the sheep of my pasture ~
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." ~ John 10:11 ~

"Once we roared like lions for liberty, now we bleat like sheep for security! The solution for America's problem is not in terms of big government, but it is in big men over whom nobody stands in control but God." ~ Norman Vincent Peale ~

"The King of love my shepherd is.
Whose goodness faileth never,
I nothing lack if I am his,
And he is mine forever."

 "We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me or get out of my way."
~ General George S. Patton

"To create man was a quaint and original idea, but to add sheep was tautology." ~ Mark Twain ~

Blessings ~ Sabbath, a mini vacation every week ~ restful sleep ~ clean air ~ beautiful sky ~ the sun ~ the Son ~ today, a beautiful day for my birthday, thank you God ~

  6. Hi Mee, so glad y'all came to the farm and loved your photos of the day. Many thanks and give Nora a hug for me.

    Hi Kathy, nekkid sheep are fine and I'm rested from sheep shearing but still resting from surgery. If it ain't one thing it's another or so said Roseannadanna.

    Hi Deanna, thanks for stopping by and so glad you like the photo. I change it by the quarter so it's only up for 4 months each year.

    Hi Strawberry Mallard, no finer footsteps to follow than His!

    Hi Deborah and thanks for the birthday wishes.
