WordPress.com Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

This week’s photo challenge at The Daily Post is Home.

foxes“Foxes have holes,

birds

and birds of the air have nests;

Jesus_030

but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” (Matthew 8:20) A sobering thought as we prepare for the season of Lent and remember the far-too-many people who are homeless and perhaps never have had or will have a home. Lord have mercy, grant us more of your compassion to care for the homeless.

The Daily Prompt at Daily Post @ WordPress.com

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/01/18/daily-prompt-free-association/

 

Write down the first words that comes to mind when we say…

 

…home.

 

…soil.

 

…rain.

 

Use those words in the title of your post.

 

Home: Love, family, equality, a safe, welcome place of refuge and retreat where you can relax and be yourself.

 

Soil: Human beings are made of earth and God’s breath of life, produces food for humankind, is to be responsibly, and respectfully cared for that we and those generations who follow us may enjoy life on this earth.

 

Rain: Being a Christian, my first thought is the sacrament of baptism, which gives us new life as we are baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus. Rain/water is God’s way of restoring and renewing life to earth; without rain/water, humankind cannot survive.
