Be Watchful..........June 23



Card dated 1858
(guess they liked to paint Jesus
with long hair)

"Be watchful and vigilant. It is by design that Jesus concealed the last day from us.
He wants us to be on the lookout for Him every day of our lives.

St. Augustine

What a wonderful card! I love it when you post an image I've never seen before. I also like the quote you chose. Yes, we never know when the last day will be and it's probably a good thing or we would be all frantic about everything left undone. Hopefully, we'll be ready in the ways that are important.

Thanks again. God bless.

Sweet Micki,
I love this picture...Jesus putting flowers on our heads...I love it.

I agree with Kay the quote is perfect with this.
Love you,
Prayerflowers

I can't quite read the label at the bottom (except for the word "Paris"), but might this not be an early example of St. Sulpice style?

Micki,
Sorry I did not get back to you sooner! The graphic you asked about at my blog was a google image find.
I simply typed in the words, "wolf in sheep's clothing."
I went back and could not find a definitive source.
I agree, It is a very interesting graphic!
Blessings!

Kay - Thank you...hard to find one you haven't seen :-)

Prayerflowers - Yes, a different thought from the beautiful yet standard picture of crowning Mary with a flower wreath. Make mine roses please :-)

Irene - Thanks for stopping by. I'm not sure if this would be early St. Sulpice or not...1858 is a longgggggg time ago.

Soutenus - Thanks for your answer...I do love that sheep/wolf picture.

CT - So glad you like this picture.
St. Augustine has said some powerful words to choose from.
