Finding ‘Pasture’ for our lives … from a Shepherd

Just a simple thought today. I am reading in the book of John, chapter 10 precisely. What a comfort, what a joy that He says He is "the Good Shepherd"?

Joe’s Epilogue

(Reading the previous post will help make some sense out of this one.)
Just one more thought before we leave ‘Joe’:
