Our children created a unique card for Father's Day. Using their
thumbprints, the children created pictures of sheep. They then drew
a shepherd and glued this poem (my original writing) to their
Children are just little lambs
Needing love and care.
We have a Heavenly Shepherd
Who is with us everywhere.
But even on this Earth,
God gave us shepherds, too.
He knew just what I needed.
I'm so glad He gave me you!
Inside their cards, children glued the preprinted words to Psalm
78:5-7: "The Lord made an agreement with Jacob and gave the
teachings to Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to
their children. Then their children would know them, even their
children not yet born. And they would tell their children. So they
would all trust God and would not forget what he had done but would
obey his commands."
For those children in our congregation who don't have dads
living with them, we encouraged them to give their card to someone
who had been like a shepherd or father to them.
