While watching the sheep in the capable hands of the shearers, just sitting there allowing their wool to be shorn and taken from them, this verse of Scripture, particularly the last two lines, was impressed upon me rather strongly.

*Isaiah 53:7 (New King James Version)

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.


I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    Thanks, Phil, for the reminder of His sacrifice for us. I’m reminded of “He came to pay a debt He didn’t owe, because we owed a debt we couldn’t pay.”
