Statues—Corner View

God bless this homeI only have piddling offerings for this week’s theme, statues.

Because none are technically statues.

Well, …until I looked up the definition of statue:

a three-dimensional work of art, as a representational or abstract form, carved in stone or wood, molded in a plastic material, cast in bronze, or the like

So if you play generously, these will qualify.

This rock seat has had a few homes in our yard, the current being at the water’s edge. Jenna and her ducks play here.

She’s slept comfortably in this same bed for years now. angel in garden I brought this rabbit home from my mom’s house a few weeks ago. When I tried to move it today—by its ears (a bad move)—the ears broke off. I gingerly set them back atop his head.

So as long as he agrees to sit very still among the flowers, no one ever has to know, right?peeking rabbitIt reminded me of my favorite “statue” Bible story (1 Samuel 5:2-4). After the Philistines stole the Lord’s ark of the covenant from the Israelites, the Philistine’s own statue god Dagon fell face down before the ark.

They put Dagon back together.

But the next morning, not only had Dagon fallen again, but his head and both his hands had also fallen off, leaving only its trunk intact. The Philistines were so scared, they returned the ark.

I’ll be checking my rabbit’s ears in the morning. 

You shall have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:3

Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man.
Acts 17:29

For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.
Psalm 86:10
