Sabbath Keeping

"The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want..." 
~ Psalm 23:1 ~
"If you ever find it hard to sleep at night, don't count sheep.
Instead, talk to the Shepherd...lay all your burdens unto God
and nothing will disturb you." ~ unknown ~ 
"The benevolent despot who sees himself as a shepherd still demands from others the submissiveness of sheep." ~ Eric Hoffer ~
"I want no Christmas without a burden for lost souls, a message for sinners, a heart to bring in the lost sheep so dear to the Shepherd, the sinning souls for whom Christ died."
~ Dr. John R. Rice
"Shepherd, your sheep are weary." 
~ Todd Agnew ~ listen here ~
"If sheep do not have the constant care of the shepherd, they will go the wrong way, unaware of the dangers at hand. They have been known to nibble themselves right off the side of the mountain...And, so, because sheep are sheep, they need shepherds to care for them. The welfare of sheep depend solely upon the care they get from their shepherd. Therefore, the better the shepherd, the healthier the sheep." ~ Kay Arthur ~
"When at night, you cannot sleep,
 talk to the shepherd and stop counting sheep." 
~ unknown ~
"A preacher must be both soldier and shepherd,
 he must nourish, defend, and teach;
 he must have teeth in his mouth and be able to bite and fight." 
"Parenting is shepherding the hearts of your children
in the ways of God's wisdom."
"The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat,
for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator
while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the
destroyer of liberty."
"Without a shepherd, sheep are not a flock."
~ Russian proverb ~

"I am the good shepherd, I know my sheep and my sheep know me." ~ John 10:14 ~

  10. I read this post last night and came back now to absorb it better. It reminds me so much of a children's musical our kids were in back in the late 80s at church about the sheep and their shepherd.

  13. I'm thankful that Jesus is the only true Shepherd. So many so called Christians let the Government be their shepherd, to their shame.

    BTW, be sure to look in the heavens for the comet C/2011 L4 tonight. There's only a few nights it will be visible to the naked eye. Pretty cool.

    God bless. ~:)
