Shepherd’s Heart

 

New Born Lamb

Christmas is a necessity.  There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.  ~Eric Sevareid

The Christmas season is here! As we prepare for all the festivities I pray that our hearts will remember the reason we celebrate…the birth of the Messiah. I’m going to share as much Christmas thoughts, poems, Bad Sheep comics as I possibly can…maybe throw in a give-away as well. Bless you all! – Jay


Shepherd’s Heart

It is a dark night, cold
with uncaring.

Offering no relief from
the smell of sheep.
Their breath, like one
with my own.

My soul, chilled as
the night that shrouds me.
Grows weary with the
weight of my watch.

Heralds fill the darkness
with light for my vision.
The tone of eternity awakes
the hope in me.

I am drawn by worship words
to the smallest of places.
My life desperately needing
the promise there.

The future is birthed with
humanity clothes.

A babe, naked and vulnerable.
A king, beating with a shepherd’s heart.
