My Sheep





Ella and I made these sheep today, a very cute Easter craft if ever I saw one. They are basically clothespins and cotton balls and they stand up very well. This is because we know how to adjust them so they stand up straight and stable. We know our sheep because we made them.



"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me - just as the Father knows me and I know the Father - and I lay down my life for the sheep...My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand." John 10: 14,27,28

A beautiful Bible passage and what a cute craft for Ella. She is so sweet. Hope you and Phil have a nice weekend. I look forward to you sharing Phil's wisteria tree.

when Ella becomes a Grandma, she will tell her grands, "when I was little like you, my grandma and I made these."

Great thing to do.

Ann said...

Those are so cute. I imagine you two had loads of fun making them too. Did you make a whole flock of them

Hi ... Ginny, I see you leaving comments on my daughter blog. She was sentenced by her father and banned online for an unspecified time. Her friends of rather naughty had taught her to open an adult site. My husband knows and furious. Intan has been studying computers since she was a kindergarten. And grow smarter since my husband bought a laptop for her. Computer and English lessons at school are always to value 100 (A). We have a private English teacher for her. According to the teachers, my daughter is including a genius child (but a bit lazy). She is leading the wall magazine in her school . She's good at breaking into the computer protection that have been paired by my husband. But my child is not upset over this punishment. Because my husband just bought a new bike for her. Now she's more playing bikes with the neighborhood kids. And to temporarily forget with her blog, naturally if a kid became bored quickly. On the internet she is also hard to make friends with the same age (10 years). She wanted to join FB, but my husband forbade it. Because FB can indeed negatively affects the child's age Intan. In Indonesia, many cases of children abduction because of FB.

Seeing the sheep again on a Sunday morning makes me think of one Easter when my second daughter performed as a lamb one Easter.

When I was living in Singapore 1990-2006, the university gave us apartment housing, there were land in front and at the back of the apartments. Some of us residents planted plants. The university wanted uniformity. They allowed only the plants their gardeners planted.

They relaxed the rule, only the landed facing the road are not allowed. My heliconia was in front facing the bush. Was I answer when I woke up one to because some zealous gardener chopped it down.

these sheep are adorable..what a cute idea.

linda said...

Love this craft and the Scripture you chose to go with your photos. Even though I have read those verses many times, until the jolt of seeing your and Ella's little sheep, I never thought of myself as a sheep. But, yep, I do have some sheeplike tendencies. It is comforting to know I have a good shepherd who accepts me with all my sheep tendencies!

Glenda said...

Adorable, Ginny - and such a good analogy! This would make a great Sunday School craft for young ones.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Cute little sheep, Ginny. I know that you and Ella enjoyed that project... Children keep you young, don't they????? I am not around children much anymore --and miss that...
Hugs,
Betsy
