Favorite saying by Albert Einstein, "If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want your children to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."

Chapter 9 of the book Shepherd
Italian Sonnet
"He Leads Me" by w.j.debi
He leads me through the shadows of the night
with light that makes both storm and sorrow flee.
And in my mind I hear His gentle plea,
"Oh, ye of little faith don't doubt what's right.
I hope you know, you're precious in my sight.
I am the way so come and follow me.
For Peter faltered walking on the sea,
and I was there to save him from his plight."

"If you, before the dawn, deny me thrice,
or turn from good and choose the path of sin,
I'll go ahead and still I'll pay the price,
and open wide my arms and take you in.
And in return I ask this sacrifice--
Your humble heart that feels my love within."


The book continues with Beside. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Italian Sonnet--made of an octave with a required rhyme scheme of abbaabba and a sestet. Unlike other sonnets, there is no closing couplet.

Bible References

Matthew 14: 28-33 Peter began to walk on water, grew afraid, and started to sink. He called out to the Lord who reached out and saved him.

Matthew 26:69-75 Peter denied the Lord three times before the cock crowed.
