We are the People of His Pasture and the Sheep of His Hand
One of my favorite lines from the Psalms...
Well, thanks to more fence help from our friend Glen, my little flock is now free to enjoy the newly green grass of our large pasture! Hurray!! And they are loving it! It is such a joy to look out there and see them contentedly grazing in the mild fall weather. I am wrestling with over-protectiveness as they seem so exposed, compared to the confines of the small pens. But this is where I learn to trust God, because in reality, I can only do so much to keep them safe. In this, He reminds me to trust Him not only for my flock's safety and wellbeing, but also for the safety and wellbeing of my family, friends, and community. Lord, let us graze in Your pasture, peaceful and content, trusting in Your care.
LK 12:32 "Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. "
