As a contrast to my Weight(less) post yesterday, I thought it would be good to post something quite the opposite today.
The feeling of heaviness and sadness surrounds this image I shot on the Spanish Steps in Rome. For all the times I have seen them it never gets easier.
I am reminded of these verses in the Gospel of Matthew:
35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’
Great post! x
What you and Jon do for the homeless is a testimony to the strength you get from and your belief in The Bible. You feed the hungry. You have clothed the naked. You are embellishing your heavenly crowns.

Very powerful photo and a good, but sad, interpretation of the theme.
