No. 49


Only a number to the world at large,

but intimately known

by his Maker –

every habit,

every scar,

every dream

accounted for

as the Shepherd

counts sheep

not to sleep

but to keep track



to dispense

    YES! This is brilliant. A number or nothing to the world, but ‘Beloved of God’, always.

    Love this Melody…especially the part about keeping track of sheep so He can dispense grace. Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound! So glad the Good Shepherd goes seeking after the one who wanders away from the flock.
    Heart Hugs!

    And that’s a good thing!!!

  8. Melody, this one really touches me today! Even as mothers watch over their “lambs” – how much more so does He watch over each one of us.
