You'll do what? Lead me? And Carry Me?

In the midst of life's craziness one thing is certain:God & His word. It sounds so churchy and religious but, it's true! The crazy thing about it is that you don't always feel Him. One of the biggest revelations that I have learned over the last 8 years, 9 months,and 2 days of motherhood (not including the 41 week gestational period of my first born) is that, Isaiah 40:10-12 says, He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young. That scripture doesn't evoke a picture shepherd who is impatient and yelling at the sheep because she is too slow, or disorganized or is late because she is trying to get her little lambs together. It tells me that the shepherd is tender to the sheep that is pregnant for the first or the millionth time. And he is all the more patient with the sheep that has many little lambs to take care of. He knows that it's a tough job-He has many lambs to take care of too.
