Monday Mosaic – Sheep

 

It’s Monday again! That means we all head over to Mary’s for peeks into each other’s mosaic lives…

with Christmas approaching, it should be extra good this month.

Last week, when I posted for the cloche party, I included my Aynsley sheep which Mom bought for me in England. Some comments reminded me that the sheep have great significance at Christmas…and of course they are so right!

The holiday is all about the Lamb of God…

So with that in mind, I thought I would do a mosaic of sheep and lambs. All are from our house, except the one on the kitchen counter (saw it at house tour…love it!).

Below is the real thing…taken on our trip to Scotland last year. I love the way each sheep was looking in my direction. I think they thought I would feed them!…or lead them home…or something…

As we remember our Good Shepherd this Christmas season, let us all look to Him, and rejoice!

Oh, this is a great post! Your little sheep are so lovely and I'm so glad you mentioned Jesus is the Lamb of God! Hallelujah to His name.
Be a sweetie,

Your sheep mosaic is beautiful. Your photo is also wonderful. Interesting how people are compared to sheep in the Bible, and that it was to shepherds that the angels brought the good news of His birth. Lovely post. Hugs, Cindy S.

Sheep are just so perfect for photographs. They just hang about waiting for you to finish your clicking. It is like it happens all the time.
The indoor ones are nice too. If I were to start one more collection it would be sheep.

Lovely mosaic of your sheep collection and wonderful photo of the 'real' critters too! I love Mondays and usually share mosaics on all three of my blogs. This week I've shared blue Southern California skies at Sacred Ruminations, interesting shadows & flowers at Happily Retired Gal and colorful pansies at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,
