the lost Sheep
BY MIChael JOhnSOn
It always fascinated me - that story
about the lost sheep. Remember now, I'm not
a religious nut. I'm not even very high up...after
all, Sherry and I are just Methodists.
But the other day, the story came home. I loved
that story when I was young - and it confused me. I
remember at age 10 or 11 asking my mother about it. "I don't
understand this," I said. "Would daddy and all the men leave the herd to
find the one?"
"It's a story about God's love for us," she said. "He loves us as much
as all the rest - and yes, your daddy and uncles would look for the one
until they found it. We're all like that. That's in all of us."
Sherry was gone to see the grandkids in Colorado. Rowdy and I were
batchin' and cooking, and after feeding the roping steers, we relaxed
on the porch before dinner. Twenty minutes later, the steers were lying
peacefully, horses munching grass...and a biological miracle occurred.
