Ability to separate the Sheep;

When it becomes necessary to separate several flocks of sheep, one shepherd after another will stand up and call out: Tahhoo! Tahhoo! or a similar call of his own choosing. The sheep lift up their heads, and after a general scramble, begin following each one his own shepherd. They are thoroughly familiar with their own shepherd’s tone of voice. Strangers have often used the same call but their attempts to get the sheep to follow them always fail. The words of Jesus are indeed true to Eastern Shepherd life when he said: “The sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” (John 10:4,5)

I want to be a lamb that only follows my shepherd (Jesus) and hears His voice.

  1. I’m a really new blogger and I have no idea why there are little lines under this post. Oye Vay! Every day is a new learning experience for me, but for this I am grateful. Blessings!

  2. Ellen,

    Some blogging etiquette and HTML code lessons.

    When you take something from another site or blog and post it directly or refer to it, or if it is the source of your blogging, it is customary to credit the site either with a link and acknowledgement, or with the notation at the bottom of your post:


    ht stands for “hat tip”

    Now it looks to me like you found the picture on the web, copied and pasted it into your post, and when you began writing, it picked up the code that was embedded to frame the picture and it continued to underline the words in your post.

    To fix it you have to manually remove the code. I will have to show you how to do that…in the mean time abra cadabra, it’s fixed
