Spring cleaning 1987, time to clean out the bookcase. But wait. I think I will keep this one. Here is a book that talks about sheep in the Bible. I get excited and read on, eventually confirming that the Bible does indeed have much to say about sheep and their shepherd. On a blank page at the front of my Bible I start listing verses pertaining to sheep. I become more intrigued by the Biblical significance of sheep. Could we have live sheep walking around in the Revolutionary graveyard next to our church? My husband doesn't think the church elders or town fathers would care much for the idea!
However in a Florida thrift shop my husband finds a large stuffed sheep and brings it home. It's the first of my collection. Ten sheep now ride permanently in the rear window of our car. A church member gives me a small wooden Christmas tree sheep ornament. I wear it around my neck! A small stuffed sheep is fastened to my purse. As people ask about the sheep, I would write out for them Bible verses about sheep. Subsequently my husband and I design a "sheep card" and patiently photocopy 100 at a time. Now we take the job to a local printer!
Yes, we like to call ourselves sheep people! "We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Psalm 100:3. Praise be to God.
