ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: THE PSALM 23 ADVENTURE, Part 37

April 14th, 2017|ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK:|

Thought I was going to get to sharing some pictures from my visit at Uncle Roy’s but still haven’t gotten there yet. We will see what the day brings us today. There is another, totally different, aspect of the Rod that comforts us and brings us peace as we walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. The rod that David describes is a whole lot more than just a rod for correction. Of the 81 times it appears in the Old and New Testaments it is a symbol of authority in the large majority of references.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: THE PSALM 23 ADVENTURE, Part 36

April 6th, 2017|ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK:|

Uncle Roy Archer was a shepherd in the truest sense of the word. Many years ago, I had the opportunity to visit his ranch and see a modern-day shepherd at work. You all probably understand that there is a huge difference between a shepherd and a sheep-herder. A shepherd leads his sheep. A sheep-herder drives his sheep, often using a sheep dog. What I saw and what I learned watching Uncle Roy is germane to where we will be going during the next few weeks.
