The Good Shepherd!

An email came floating through my office a few days ago, and it's been on my mind ever since.  It really touched me, so I had to send it home to myself.  A fellow employee sent it to some of us girls-don't know where he came across it.  But I thanked him graciously and decided to send it on to you, my readers.  Not even my mind's eye could have come up with this!

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard.  During the night the folks came across this scene.  An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep.  He chose the baby Jesus as his comfort.  No one had the heart to send him away, so he was there all night.
We should all have the GOOD sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus' lap from time to time.
According to the article, no one mentioned that the dog breed is a "SHEPHERD!"

" I will not be afraid-for you are with me, Lord I'm not scared, cause you are with me, Jesus."
taken from Psalm 23, The Lord is My Shepherd
as interpreted by Rev. Jackie Love Prim

"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air."
~W.T. Ellis

  4. Thank you Laura...that picture has made an impact on me. Of course, I love German Shepherd dogs-I've had several in my life and they were the most loving and protective of any dog I've had. Merry Christmas to you! I'm glad it's ok to say that again.

  5. Such a lovely little story, and the photo is delightful. He knew where he had to go to get some shelter, and perhaps we should do the same more often! You kindly left a comment on my Blog, and I would like to follow you if I may.

  6. You're right, this picture really touched me. I only wish I would have been the one to take the photo-I probably would have brought the dog home with me! Thank you for your compliment. Please do follow if you wish. And, there's more I'd like to read on your blog. Can I follow? You have some great pictures and info. Merry Christmas!
