Thankful Thursday: Shepherding

This time of year I like to reflect on the story of Christmas and the role of shepherds. I can’t imagine what it must’ve been like to be called to the birth of Jesus while tending a flock of sheep.

What’s a modern-day shepherd’s life like? Have a look at our farm’s yearly cycle:

Tasks aside, we do make time for spending holidays with family, rejoice when births occur in our 100-year-old barn (though you won’t find human babies born there) and wonder at the miracles witnessed while spending time outdoors in God’s creation.

May you have a very blessed holiday season!
