"Mom Umbrella"

This photo was in the Scholastic News that I worked through with a class of first graders today. It reminded me of Jesus' lamentation over Jerusalem:

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing." Luke 13:34

This imagery always grips my heart. The love of God envelops us like a mother hen gathers her baby chicks. Amen.
