A dear friend sent me this e-card three days ago. I find myself clicking on it again and again.

I identify pretty strongly with that little searching, bleating lamb.

I hope that link will work for a few days.

Thanks, Ann. But you've been having some great stuff happening. Much better than my meandering thoughts.

Roberta: Great minds, indeed. I'm not at all surprised that you were drawn to it too. For a couple of softies, we do a good imitation of "tough ol' broads," don't we? ;-)

Lisa this is just lovely. And this from AOL no less! Thank you for linking us to it.

I did the same, Sharecropper. I identified with that lamb more than I want to acknowledge.

Elizabeth, I've heard so many similar comments ... I wonder if this is not a more common reaction than I realized.

When I posted this here, I thought it was just me. Apparently, I'm not the only bleating lamb who wants to leap into the comforting arms of our saviour.

My own mystical-poetic theology sees all of time and space as deep within one location: the heart of God. So we are not only in the shepherd's arms but in Godde's heart. There is no other place. No matter how far we think we have wandered or how lost we feel, we are deep within the loving mystery of the Trinity. Alas, we don't usually feel that way.

Now you know how I visualize you, and myself, even in our worst moments.

I would usually find a card like that soppy, but it was really sweet and touching. So no, you are far from the only one.

Paul, you definitely qualify for the most thoughtful reply to this post. But I'm grateful you appreciate this "soppy" image too.

Oh, Lisa,

What a sweet and touching card, a real gift. We are all like that lamb.

So glad it was sent.

I got this card too. I liked it a lot but would like to have seen the little lamb re-join the flock.

My little dog was moved to barking by the baa-ing.

I too got this card, and normally I think I might have found it insipid.

However, it did strike me- the lost lamb, crying and the shepherd who comes to find it.

Nice post- thank you and may Easter bring you all that you need.

But, let us never forget how far the lamb had to travel alone while we trust the shepherd was looking and praying. And, let's hope the flock was welcoming.

Just fell over your blog, clicking around the web :-)
So love this e-card
am trying to think how best to add it onto my site - will probably do as you did & link from my blog section.

Hope you'll visit my site called "Liturgy" at
and even consider linking our sites.

Let me know.
Christ is Risen!
