I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Weekend. God Bless and enjoy my latest animation.
Christian the Bible Cat is a new cartoon series I launched right before Christmas I will be bring you this series along with Shep and His Lambs.
This is my first attempt at my new blog format. So I’m trying to keep it simple.
The times are very stressful and it’s very easy to get all mad at people about nothing at all. My point in this cartoon is to get people to chill a little and think before they react.
It’s time to stop giving the Bird to people and start sharing the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The time is now. I feel a revival coming.
Just remember would John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only son so that no one would parish but would have eternal life.
Or the faith that will move mountains.
People naturally look at their problems as giant mountains they cannot overcome. They have what I call Baby Faith. If we focus on our problems rather then God our problems appear huge and God seems little. If we change our focus to God then our problems become small. Sometimes our problems can be created within our own minds. They are often just an illusion.
14 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic[a] and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”
17 Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief;[b] for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”[c]
Jesus was not telling them that they needed more faith. They certainly tried to cast out the Demon. That in itself takes faith. The lesson that Jesus wanted to teach His disciples was where to put their faith, in Him. Without Jesus the disciples could do nothing. Even the Father made the mistake of bypassing Jesus when he was right there. The disciples asked Jesus “why could we not”. Their focus was on the “we”, not on the Jesus. Jesus is the power.
When the Father was not successful in achieving his goal, getting his son healed. He went to the source and asked for His mercy. Jesus and His power were moved to the point of casting out the demon and the healing of the son.
So whatever mountain may be in your way. Know for a certainty that if you go to Jesus with compassion and mercy He will move that mountain for you. Believe in Him and He will direct your path. Grow up in the Lord and put away your baby faith.
My newest image is called “Praise Him”. I was inspired by praise and worship artist, Lincoln Brewster‘s new album cover. I hope you don’t mind, Lincoln. Wow, I just love the cover and had to illustrate one of my lambs rocking out to praise music.
Praise and Worship Music is a great way to praise our Lord. The word praise means to magnify, it is the expression of worship. It is the perfect way to get intimate with our Lord. Praise brings us into the realm of the Spirit and Power of God.
It touches our soul and heart. Their are many Praise and Worship Bands available online today in every categories. You can also purchase them from your local Christian Bookstore. Whatever you choose to do just remember to Praise Him.
being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Praise Jesus daily. It will help to get your focus on Him, not yourself. Know that He is your strength. In Him is all power and glory.
Be thankful for all He has given you. Take notice of the Glory of His Creation. He will supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory. As life gets more and more difficult know that God is in control and just Praise and Worship Him for that. All things are happening with God’s purpose.
The Lord delights in the love and devotion of His Children. As His children we must worship the Father in Spirit and Truth.
I hope you enjoy my newest design. God Bless and don’t forget to Praise Him
Jesus said in the Book of John 6:35 , “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”
The Bread of Life that Jesus spoke about is the Spiritual Gift that God has given to all who believe in his Son, the new birth, Christ in you, the hope of glory. In the Old Testament God provided His people with manna from heaven. It served to satisfy their physical needs while they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Manna was Israel’s salvation. Without it they would have perished.
Today it is Jesus Christ that God has given us to sustain life. Without Him their is no life. He is the manna for our souls . The giver of eternal life. Believe that God raised Him from the dead and let him become your bread of life.
Focus on Him daily. Read His Word and pray continually. He is your spiritual nourishment. He will sustain you.
Please enjoy the Easter season. It’s all about God raising His only begotten Son from the dead.
The Bible says in I Corinthians 12:27 “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you are a part of it.” We all have a part to play within the family of Christ no matter what outlet we choose. It’s really about spreading the Gospel. Choose the Gospel and let God take care of the rest.
The Traditional Christian Store
The traditional Christian store has been around for quite some time now. A brick and mortar structure built to supply the needs of an ever increasing Christian market place. It started with a few items needed for clergy and grew into a multi-billion dollar industry. With items for the new born Christian Baby along with a line of Christian Clothes for the entire family. Yes, the industry has grown and with it the ability to purchase those items in a number of different outlets.
Christian Store Outlet
An Christian store outlet is a brick and mortar retail store in which the manufacturer sell their stock directly to the public. In modern usage, outlet stores are typically manufacturer-branded stores. The invention of the outlet store is often credited to Harold Alfond, founder of the Dexter Shoe Company. To which I am very familiar having grown up in the great State of Maine.
Online Christian Store
An online Christian store or an Christian store online. Which ever you prefer, is the latest in commerce. This method of purchasing generally caters to the middle and upper classes. One must have a computer, a credit or debit card or a bank account. If one or any of these items are not present you are not able to online shop. Shopping this way has opened up an array of innovation for both the Christian and secular markets.
All Major Christian Brands now have a presence on the Web and with the movement of social integration into e-commerce it’s just a matter of time before all purchases are made right on your social network. Commerce is changing fast. With lots of prayer and wisdom we will survive.

Why did I start Shepherdlamb?
Shepherdlamb was born out of the desire to serve God and to help fulfill the Great Commission.
NKJV Matthew 28:18-20
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
It is my desire to donate 50% of the net proceeds of Shepherdlamb to local and worldwide Missionary Groups that help in that Great Commission.
It was at Port-O-Prince International Airport in Haiti almost one year ago that God gave me the inspiration to start this company. As I was sitting there waiting for the plane to be boarded I noticed that most of the patrons were Missionaries and waiting to go home. Almost all of them had T-shirts on, but they seemed to be secular in theme and nature. A few Missionaries had on that very popular one and I wondered why. What made them buy that one? As I sat and pondered the why of it all the vision of starting a Christian based company began to burn in my heart. I wanted to give back. I wanted to serve God. God had blessed me so much throughout my life in the business world and it was time to give a little back.
Shortly after arriving home I began to do marketing research in the Christian Apparel and Gift Industry looking for a niche in the market that no one was addressing. After the niche was found and defined I then began to look at themes that could go outside the realm of apparel. Something that could be greater then just Christian T-Shirts. A character based theme that would appeal to all ages and could be expanded into many different markets. I wanted hand drawn illustrations that would be relevant, yet timeless. Designs that give a message of Hope, Love and Service.
Well, a theme was born. Shepherd and his lamb’s in situations of today. Unique and fun Christian illustrations that offer Biblical messages to all that see them. There’s just one problem, I haven’t drawn since college 35 years ago.
It’s time to get to work.
