A New Flag on the Treehouse depicts how SHEPHERD'S WALK came about ===== like Noah ===== building the Ark. God is calling His children... men, women, and entire families
- to a new level of PRAYER.


The original 'SWEETBRIAR' sign on the SHEEP PEN / GOAT YARD FENCE.

The green of Spring is just beginning to appear. This is looking back toward the entrance to SW - by the Treehouse.

2 Chronicles 7:14
IF My people, who are called by My Name,
will humble themselves and pray
and seek My face
and turn from their wicked ways,
THEN will I hear from heaven
and will forgive their sin
and will heal their land.

THE NAME Above All Names

Father In Heaven~

You are as close as the breath that we breathe!
Flood our thirsty hearts again.
Renew, rebuild and restore every fragmented relationship in and around us.
May Your healing power break the chains that bind us.
May You open our eyes to Your TRUTH today
and may we respond in full and complete obedience to it.
Tear the veil that holds us from open access to Your Heart!
Then- and only then -
let us walk by FAITH with JOY to the fullest!
We Praise Your HOLY NAME -

Whispering Prayers

Father God~
Today I whisper, "He is Risen", as a reminder of your love to those who believe. May we believe Your Words from
Psalm 143: 8
Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You.

Today, Lord, I pray healing over those who read this who are afflicted. Those who suffer with physical pain from illnesses that have overtaken their bodies. I pray for Your Holy Spirit to invade the very fiber of their bodies and touch them with healing in Your wings.

I pray for those who suffer from mental illnesses - that their minds would be renewed and restored as they put their trust in You.

I pray for those who suffer from emotional traumas, perhaps things that others have brought upon them. I pray that their hearts would be healed from the promises in Your Word. I pray that PRAISE would overtake their despair [Isaiah 61:3].

I pray for those under the oppression of the 'enemy' - those who are persecuted for their faith and belief in You, our Holy God, In Jesus, our Living God.

May our prayers reach Your ears today as we trust You for the answers in this Psalm as we give You PRAISE and THANKSGIVING for Who You are!

Psalm 57
For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." Of David.

1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me,
for in You my soul takes refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of Your wings
until the disaster has passed.
2 I cry out to God Most High,

to God, who fulfills {His purpose} for me.
3 He sends from heaven and saves me,

rebuking those who hotly pursue me;
God sends His love and His faithfulness.
4 I am in the midst of lions;

I lie among ravenous beasts—
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

let Your glory be over all the earth.
6 They spread a net for my feet—

I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path—
but they have fallen into it themselves.
7 My heart is steadfast, O God,

my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
8 Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn.
9 I will praise You, O Lord, among the nations;

I will sing of You among the peoples.
10 For great is Your love, reaching to the heavens;

Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

let Your glory be over all the earth.

Spring is attempting to unfold here at SHEPHERD'S WALK!
April Showers will bring May flowers!

The squirrels ate almost every single bud off my STAR Magnolia this year!

These bulbs were castaways in the woods -
yet they took root and found a way to bloom.

Drink deeply of the Living Water - Jesus!

This day began with a loud rumbling of thunder that continued and got louder throughout the day. I love thunder and lightening. Most people fear it and run from it but when I hear the power of the booms or the flashes across the sky - I am reminded of God's mighty power and His strength. I stand in awe and reverence of that power - because HE IS GOD!
Jeremiah 10:12-13
But God made the earth by His power;
He founded the world by His wisdom
and stretched out the heavens by His understanding.
When He thunders, the waters in the heavens roar;
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from His storehouses.
One of my favorite quotes is:
