I am married to a Shepherd. He does not have a flock of sheep, but a family and whole bunch of people in our church he cares for. Deeply. You see, he is a minister and counselor.
He helps people carry their pain and find comfort in the rough spots of life. He inspires me.
I want to be more like him when I grow up. Kind. Compassionate. Understanding. Merciful.
One of the best things that has ever happened in my life on this earth was the day the Lord crossed our paths while we were seminary students in Ft. Worth, TX.
I hope that after 28 years of marriage he has rubbed off on me a bit. I have so much still to learn from him… just have to keep my eyes open!
(By the way, this is another one of my many infamous “eyes shut” photos. It still makes me laugh!)
(PS I’ve told him his alter-ego on my blog will be “Shep.” Since he’s a minister, maybe I should have said altar-ego. LOL)
