Neighborhood Walk 2

The elephant statue is a symbol to me of the political unrest in our nation. The elephant sits exhausted from the battles he faces. We must stand for what is right, even if in a minority.

1Co 16:13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
1Co 16:14 Let all your things be done with charity.

2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; )

We must not be overcome with the cares of this world. Take time to look at God's creation all around you in your neighborhood.

1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

The Amaryllis, sometimes called the naked lady. They are beautiful.
Someday sin will be removed and there will be no shame nor sorrow.

Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Gen 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Gen 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
Gen 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
Gen 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
Gen 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Gen 3:13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Nothing is so beautiful as a rose and yet the stems are full of thorns reminding us of the fall of Adam and curse of thorns upon the earth. Handle the rose carefully and enjoy the beauty of the creation.

Psa 29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

Isa 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Neighborhood Walk

The flag proudly flies, a symbol of our nation and freedom. We will only be free as long as Jesus Christ is honored.

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Blackberries ripen hanging out onto a sidewalk in an unattended yard. It made for a delicious snack.

Pro 13:4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

Jer 8:20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.
The cactus, a reminder of the curse upon Adam. Fenced in, some escaping the captivity only to be broken off still carrying the curse of thorns. People are under the curse of Adam until Jesus makes them free.

Gal 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Luk 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
A lantern burns in the morning light. Jesus is the light and it bothers me to see his name being taken away. Any organization that once preached Jesus, that has stopped in order to get government money should reconsider. No good work done will last, but that done in the name of Jesus.

Joh 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
Joh 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
A yard statue of a woman pouring water from her pitcher.

Mar 9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

Do good works, in the name of Jesus.
