The Lord is My Shepherd: I Shall Not Want by 

Psalm 23:1 The Lord is My Shepherd: I Shall Not Want
Dedicated to my Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ – the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

After World War II there were many homeless and starving children which the Allied Forces brought to camps and made sure they were abundantly cared for with plenty of food provided to them. However, the children were still restless and afraid at night and did not sleep well. Someone realized what the problem was and came up with a solution. Each child was given one piece of bread to hold when they were tucked in for the night. This wasn’t to eat – if they wanted more, more was provided – this piece was simply to hold. The children began going to sleep knowing they would have something to eat the next morning. That assurance gave each child a calm and restful sleep.

The good shepherd’s flock instinctively knows the shepherd has made plans for their grazing the next day. He made sure they had ample food for today, so he will tomorrow. The sheep lie down to sleep, figuratively speaking, the piece of bread in its hand.

God’s Psychiatry by Charles L. Allen

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.
