This is a residence. There are no flowers so why did I take this picture? It is not inviting. My friend Cindy has a son who is autistic. He is being trained soon with a guide dog so that he can do the things most teenagers do, that he can't do now, like walk up to 7-11 and get a slurpee. One of the dogs being considered is a doberman. Cindy and I thought that would be a good dog because it would deter some people from approaching him. That is the feeling this house gives to me. Don't come near, we don't need whatever it is you have, don't even think of it!
I have been like that at times. Leave me alone! I have had enough of what people say, and do. My defenses were as a metal fence all around me. I was ready to attack anyone who would try to annoy me. Then I listened to the Word of the Lord: "Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge; For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; Let them all be fixed upon your lips, I have instructed you today, even you. Have I not written to you excellent things of counsel and knowledge. [ Proverbs 22:17-20] Yes, I have listened to Him, and I am no longer on the defensive. All this world needs in found in scripture. As I continue to dive in to God's word I find more wisdom and truth than I ever dared to imagine. How about you?
