Why would I call my blog poolsandpastures? That’s a good question. The term poolsandpastures has its roots in Psalm 23. The Shepherd leads his sheep by pools of still water to refresh their thirsty bodies and into green pastures to sustain them for the journey of life that lies ahead. Jesus, as the Good Shepherd, leads his sheep into the pools of living water to refresh their souls and into the the treasure trove of heavenly manna to sustain their lives in his grace. As his under-shepherd, it is my great privilege to lead his sheep in his footsteps and into the pools of refreshment and into the pastures full of sustenance which he chooses. I pray for the Lord’s blessing upon us as we follow him, the great and good shepherd. Blessings.
