Scripture Sunday ~ The Good Shepherd

I am the good shepherd:  the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.

But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, 
and scatters the sheep.

The hireling flees, because he is a hireling, and cares not for the sheep.

I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

As the Father knows me, even so know I the Father: and 
I lay down my life for the sheep.

On this joyous Easter morning, let us rejoice in a Good Shepherd who not only laid down his life for His sheep, but has risen again.

Hi Cindy! Those pictures speak a thousand words. May I wish you a very Happy Easter and a wonderful weekend. It was so nice in Ottawa today. I kept my winter coat on, though, because this is a dangerous time of the year where it's just not wise to take our winter coats off too soon. Not in Ottawa, anyways. The snow is almost all gone except for the rural areas. It's so wonderful to walk on snow free sidewalks. Every year, the change over seems to happen suddenly. One day it's full of snow and the next, it's all gone.

Morning Cindy. I missed your Sunday Scripture post somehow. It has made me stop and think and not rush on. It's a special scripture and I pray that the Lord is guiding you and leading you in quiet waters this week. Also I hope you're enjoying some fresh, kindly weather suitable for this precious season of the year. x
