Protection


























I drove past this mail box today and had to take a picture. At first you go “what?” But to me it makes perfect sense – this person is “protecting” their mail box from the many clumsy farmers who whack it off regularly with a combine header or whatever implement they are sashaying down the country road with – and this person took action.
Don’t you wish we could run about with a large “protection” circle around us – shielding us form the world’s harms – whatever they be? Well, we DO have a shield – that shield is in God our father who watches over us and protects us. Now I’ll see this mail box daily on my drive and it is a great reminder for me.
Psalm 5:11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

Love the photo! I dont have much time to spend reading but i took a quick glance at your trip photos and look forward to reading more. I would be more than happy to give you my e-mail. I will try to send you a e-mail with it. Do you want me to delete yours for privacy? Dee

Hi, I trust you got my address. I deleted your post. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. If you lived in Michigan, the kids could go out and have some flaky fun. I posted a picture on my blog of Mondays snow. We are getting more today. Dee

Great picture, great post, great idea!

I hopped over from the comment you left at my blog. It's so nice to "meet" another blogger from 'round these parts:o) I'm adding you to my Kansas blogs list in my favorites.

It sounds like you had a rough 2008. I hope 2009 is better. Keep looking to God to be your strength and sufficiency. What a great reminder indeed!
