Being Sheep

"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep."John 10:14-15

More Conversations


Sometimes conversations with Nathan take a very unexpected turn.



"Nathan, Christmas is coming!"

"It is?!"

"Yes! And do you know what we celebrate on Christmas? We celebrate that Jesus was born! Come, look over here--it's baby Jesus! This is Jesus' mommy. She took good care of him. She loved him so much! She cuddled him and fed him milk, and kept him clean and warm."

"I don't like that lady. She's bad. I don't like her."

He cuddled in my lap after a long rage, he gazed into my eyes and smiled as I sang:

You are my sunshine
My little sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are gray

You'll never know, dear
How much I love you

Please don't take
My sunshine away


And afterward he said, "Someone is going to take my mommy away."
