Shetland Sheep 1984?

Well, the Thought Police are at it again. Apparently in my absence from  Facebook, the usual clique of breeders have started their mob attack against me: at least they’re not attacking little old ladies this time. Really brave characters, cyber-bullying while their prey is away.

It doesn’t help that I’m a bit mouthy and opinionated…  If you question their dogmatic (and frankly, incorrect) views they will attack you all over the internet. But let’s not dwell on the animosity- even if their darts do sting.

I’m really not sure what the correct response is… So if you’re reading this, let’s agree in prayer that this spirit of bitterness is bound, their hearts are opened and God’s Holy Spirit is allowed to heal and restore! And let’s claim this scripture!

Psalm 133
JPS Tanakh 1917
1A Song of Ascents; of David.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!
2It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Coming down upon the beard;
Even Aaron’s beard,
That cometh down upon the collar of his garments;
3Like the dew of Hermon,
That cometh down upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the LORD commanded the blessing,
Even life for ever.

And let’s focus on some good things!

Here in Western Colorado we’ve had gorgeous precipitation- that was severely harsh on freshly shorn ewes- but it is so green and lush now. The ewes are regaining the condition they lost in the storms, and the lambs are fit and strong. The mature ewes are nearly done lambing and the yearlings are trickling in with their later sired lambs.

There is much more good to report, but I need to go milk still (skiving off a bit, since people began reporting to me that the internet was abuzz with attacks against me) and then shear some ewes for my neighbors before I move the flock to their next rotation. Tomorrow begins herding the flock from horseback.

What praiseworthy things are happening for you? Rejoice!

Walk in the fullness of God’s love today! May everything you put your hand to do be blessed and your words and actions glorify Him.

  1. Lovely Lambs pictured Jared.

    It is sad that the “my way or the highway group” are still at it. Its a big world, certainly there should be room for different points of view. The sheep are delightful but the intolerance is not.

    Perhaps someday there will be peace in the Shetland Sheep community; that each point of view can be respected by the different factions. Live and let live. What a concept.

  2. If you can, be willing to say NOTHING about them or their ways. Go on about your business, bringing clarity and vision to people who will listen. Focus on us who are encouraged by you, and your ideas annd values. The others will do and be what they are and unless God directly leads you, don’t worry about them. Truth is like cream it floats to the top. Lori

  3. Hello Jared,    Frankly, I miss you on line. I haven’t heard or read anything about you but I can guess who is being the usual cyber bully. He is a bitter angry man.  I think the political climate has turned America into an angry bunch of bullies and cowards who used the internet as their voice without facts to back up their opinions. There are many of us that know  you  and know that you don’t say anything without knowing the facts first. Keep enjoying your beautiful life in CO and ignore the ugly side of life. Who needs them and their cyber darts.  Love you,Kathy
