According to Sheep101.info, "Sheep are mentioned in the Bible more than 500 times, more than any other animal. The prominence of sheep in the Bible grows out of two realities.

Blessed Passover and Resurrection Weekend!
When I was "matched" with Evan on eharmony in March 2006, one of his profile pictures had a picture of him with his bunny, Tyler. I thought, "Hmmmm...A guy with a bunny? He looks pretty nice..." :-) Yup, he's wonderful! This is our 15th Halloween together, and Evan's 62nd birthday (today)! Thanks to our family for your sweet gifts and greetings! He asked to have t-shirts designed with our bunny Mac as "Count Macula". Here's one of the images we came up with. (The backgound imagery is from Unsplash.)

but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!
For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and
have conquered it for you.] John 16:33 AMPC
One of my favorite verses is “And we have known and believed the love God has for us. God is love.” I John 4:16. Knowing and believing God's love remains a lifelong pursuit of mine. It was the love of God that brought my husband, Evan into my life in 2006 at the age of 41. Inscribed on our wedding bands is “God is love, 1 John 4:8” along with our wedding date, 6/30/07.
