I call to you, God, because I’m sure of an answer.
Bend your ear!
Paint grace-graffiti on the fences;
take in your frightened children who are running
from the neighborhood bullies straight to you.
~Psalm 17:6-7 (Message)
daring to open doors

What a fun and perfect photo for your verse. Was it a school project of some sort?
We found it outside a library on one of our travels last summer. 🙂
Sharon O says
I like it when is says if I call HE will surely answer.
what an awesome God we have.
He WILL! Surely. 🙂
That is seriously cool!
Shelly Miller says
Oh my, what an incredibly perfect photo to go with that verse. And the way the message says it, so awesome.
It does make it come alive, right? I like the idea of being corraled inside His fence.
mom of M&MS says
very nice…. and fun
I’m into fun. 😉
Absolutely perfect! Isn’t it amazing when God makes such a perfect match?
I was so excited to remember these photos when I read this verse.

I LOVE that fence! I think I might have to ask my kids to build me a small version of that in one of the gardens (great Mother’s Day project)so they can each design a few boards. Would be sooo much fun!
What a fun idea!
Joanne Norton says
I love it!! That’s exactly the kind of fence I would like. It would/could catch a lot of attention that is necessary. It would be fun to mix scriptures into it. That was a treat!
A scripture fence! Hemmed in with the Word.
It might be could to do one with words from a Wordle from a favorite passage.
Great thought, CaryJo.

Neighborhood bullies. I like that. There certainly a few around this block we call earth. I love the picture as well.
Indeed there are. All kinds.
Perfect photo for this scripture. I love how the message paints the words out in away that so many can recieve.
I think I need some bullies taken care of around my neck of the woods.
Your blog is always stocked full of wonderful up lifting and encouraging words of love.
That is why I am tagging you in a post of mine. I would love for you to come and join in if you can. It will post up tomorrow.
Oh Beth. You honor and encourage me.
The Message Bible is fascinating! Will have to pick one up to read it my next time through the Bible. A whole new perspective. I am not a “white-picket fence” dreamer, but this fence, around a lush garden, full of creativity and shelter. Love it!!
Wonderful photo, so perfect for your verse. Have a blessed day!
What great photos, Sandra! I have a New Testament in the Message version … it certainly gives us a whole new perspective for images to add to the scriptures, or vice-a-versa! lol! This photo is just right for this verse from it … and I love this verse in any version … it’s so comforting to know that He will hear, and save us! 🙂 I’ve got to get a copy of the Message Bible in the Old Testament, too!! 🙂 I’m visiting from Katie’s site, again! Have a great week! Blessings ~
