Wooly Sheep

There are many of these bushes on the banks along the wooded area where I take my walks. They bloomed this week. I smelled their sweet scent before I seen them. I had to stop & take in the scent by smelling them. As the saying goes "Take time to smell the roses" My Grandparents always called them multiple roses. They were not fans of these bushes because they would multiply & take over the pasture. Before I rounded one of the turns in the road I heard the wonderful sound of little ba-ba- bas

I have been taking my camera on my walks just hoping to get some photos of the woolly sheep & their babes. I was excited to see the sheep were close enough to get a photo. This mama & her sweet little babe.

I was really surprised to see this mama had three babes. I assumed they were all three her babes but never heard of a sheep having triplets. I stayed a bit to watch them as they munched on the tender green leaves of the trees. I went on but passed by them again on my way back. They were laying under the shade of the trees resting. They are all so cute & amazing to me. My thoughts turned to our Lord who called us His sheep. How he must think we are cute & amazing. If even one of us are lost to Him he knows & cares. He continues to knock at the door of the heart of His lost sheep waiting to be invited in.

Blessings Til Next Time!


  1. Very inspiring post. Thanks for giving me an extra boost this morning.

  2. Lara,

    Beautiful post !

    The rose bushes cause havoc with the dairy cows because they eat them while they are munching on grass and the thorns get stuck in their mouths creating a lot of problems.

    They spread like wildfire and are a nuisance to dairy farmers.

    I have to watch when I pull weeds in my yard because they just sprout anywhere and I have gotten some thorns in my hands.


  3. Thanks for sharing today.Loved the sheep and your thoughts on us as god's sheep.Have a great week!~Amy

  4. Lara ... Those roses are beautiful & do have a great fragrance even if they can get to be a nuisance. Loved what you said about the sheep. Never thought about it that way. I always enjoy watching them & now will think of the Lord every time I do : ) Blessings, Shirlee
