sheep will go astray...

with hosanna leading the way, jericho and bathsheeba have managed to squeeze out of the fence, never mind the hot wire! here is the proof of the waywardness of my little flock. apparently the grass, hay, oats, fresh water, shelter, and protection of a guard llama are not enough for these three. they want YARD grass.

no wonder the Bible so often compares us to sheep. haven't i disregarded all the ways that God provides for me? don't i seek what appears to me to be better? i somehow believe that God is holding back the greenest grass and i must jump his protective fences in order to get it. oh, the lie of the greener grass!

For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
1 peter 2:25

What a great post, Stacy. It's so very very true, isn't it? I wonder all the while what your llama was thinking..."hey! get back here!" "I can't fit through that,that's no fair!" "just wait till I tell the chickens on you!"
