The Good Shepherd
when bernie and i were in rapid city manitoba, visiting some old friends that i have known for fifty years, mr c was called over to his daughter's house...now his girl and her husband and three children live right next door.
his daughter is a shepherd of a flock of sheep and one of the sheep who had wandered away got herself into much distress because she had stepped on to the tin roof of a shed and gone right through and was in a trap...
mr. c looked on...
as his daughter spoke gently to the sheep.
and then two pairs of willing hands helped the shepherd pull the fearful sheep from its precarious situation.
after valarie and her boy looked the sheep over carefully for any cuts or bruises..
they saw a large cut in the sheep's leg and so the boy comforted the sheep as his mother went to get some medicine..he knew that it would surely sting but..
the shepherd of the hurt little sheep had no choice but to pour the stinging but healing liquid into the open wound.
the sheep made no complaints and was as quiet as a little dove.
when the doctoring was done and the sheep made its way to the edge of the yard, it turned its little head as if to say thank you to its rescuer.
the boy offers comfort to the sheep..
the sheep's mama and the rest of the flock look on and wait for their friend to return...
but the sheep will have to stay put for a while by itself while it mends....but really not alone because the boy, son of the shepherd will keep the sheep company!
have a blessed lords day!.......love terry
