When mowing my lawn today, I noticed how burned out it was. Yet, under the shade of the trees, the grass was green and healthy. How, I thought that was a lot like my faith! When I take refuge under the shade of ‘The Shepherd’, my faith is healthy and strong. But, when I allow the scorching trials of this life to beat me down, I burn out. When I have hard times, and I know I will, I will remind myself to look for the wings of ‘The Shepherd’. It is there I will find rest, life and peace.
