Shepherdesses, Catholic Photo Challenge

They are not deep in my life, these three women.  Yet in my walk through unfamiliar pastures they are examples of Christ’s hands, His voice, and His love modeled in a world gone terribly wrong.

It is the building up of  little things of love that matter, and women are good at building incrementally. Pat Gohn, Maria Morera Johnson, and Lisa Hendey easily share the morsels of love left behind by Christ, creating a feast for the Family of God.

They continue to be distant shepherdesses in my spiritual walk, and that of many others.

And though I do not have a picture of Elizabeth Scalia, she too shepherds well.

(And sorry I couldn’t follow the Catholic Photo Challenge theme for Father’s Day–still, it’s about whole and holy nurturance.)
