If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
Ordained to be protected and cared for by the Most High throughout all the land were the Widows and Orphans. Along side the Levite Priest, We as a nation of people always cared for this particular group of our community with special care.
Facing capital punishment if not diligently done so, our forefathers and fore mothers contributed monetary and non-monetary supplies to the treasuries for their provisions. Perhaps the most notable widows and orphans mentioned in the book of the Law are:
Tamar the widow (Genesis 38:11) The Widow and vessels of oil (2 Kings 4:1)
Judith wife of Manasses of the tribe of Simeon (Book of Judith 8:4;9:2)
Women of Israel (Isaiah Chapter 4)
Anna the prophetess (Luke 2:36-37)
Widow of Zarephath who feed the Prophet Elijah(1 Kings 17:9)
and countless others........
From beginning to end, in the book of the Law, our Father unconditionally expresses His great care and mercy for them. One wonderful example in the
2 book of Maccabees conceivably displays HIS solemness! A messenger Heliodorus because of the King's commandment was brutally beaten to the brink of death for attempting to take the temple's treasuries which include the monies to care for them.
An inference of a widow's life experience can be seen in the WORD. For instance, her style of dress (Genesis38:14 Judith 10:3) her financial status
(1 Kings 17:12,Job 24:3) how she raises her children and so forth. It's not a pleasant pill to swallow knowing we as a nation of people haven't always been trustworthy when caring for our sisters and orphans, but the FATHER has been merciful to the nation of Israel.
As an Israelite, let us always consider our widows and orphans.

NICODEMUS AND THE GANG
Inez Hogan (August 5 1895-February 1973) was an American author and Illustrator of children's books.
Did you Know ??
Collecting, seeing, and discussing such memorabilia can be a "soft" spot for some in the Diaspora, but for many who understand the prophecies of the children of Israel may view it as small signs of validation. In the Books of Nicodemus and the Gang (after reading many comments as well as pictures of open pages) I conclude that a lot of his adventures were typical everyday life events as an Israelite male child in america. Not fully aware of his true nationality, but very conscience of God, also knowing he was one of his children. Just take a look at this page featuring a song as well:
Black americana memorabilia has an in-depth history of identiying the black characters with bibical names. Quite often, the character(s) have a great regard for family, moral values, respect, and high self-esteem. In the many comments I've read people stated they learned a lot of life values from the adventures Nicodemus. The dialect and depiction of black children in this era by Inez Hogan was what some would now consider offensive, but it doesn't take away from their undeniable beauty or visual impact. Racism has been in the atomsphere throughout countless generations. Some may feel reluctant to owning anything they deem attached to it, while others find that ignoring the plight of our people to be insolent to our foreparents regardless of the pain it arouses. Know this rather painful or enlighting black americana memorabilia is not a reflection of the subjects character, but the creator there of.

The Truth About Easter
What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it." Deuteronomy 12:32
FACT #2 Easter is a moveable holiday (holyday). In turn supports its origin worship (celebration) to that of fertility, conception, renewal and vernal equinox/spring solstice. All the High Holydays(holidays) ordained by God are inflexible dates.
Fact #3 Good Friday is also a pagan practice! Friday per the Book of the Law(Bible) is known as Day of Preparation or the day before Sabbath (rest/7thday) modern day Saturday, Mark 15:42. Jesus the Christ stated: “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” -Matthew 12:40. Friday to Sunday is not a total of three days and three nights.
Fact#4 Symbolic figures of Easter are foolish! Rabbits do not lay eggs, Eggs are not colorful, and the cross represents an instrument used to crucify our Lord and Savior which the children of Israel were forbidden to worship wood and stone! Read Mark 7:7-13, II Corinthians 6:17, 1 John 2:15, Revelation 18:4
