Favorite illustration of a biblical truth: Psalm 23, “The Lord is my Shepherd…” God cares about all aspects of our lives and has provided his presence to comfort us even in uncomfortable surroundings. As a mother of four who also works with children, I often feel like a shepherd gathering the lambs who are going all over the place! It is a wonderful reminder of how God gathers us and leads us.
