Ponder: "Nest" is such a cozy word, suggesting security and comfort, and everything that goes with them, like padded upholstery and central heating. But a real nest, belonging to birds, is not any of those things. It's composed of sticks, exposed to the elements, and built to last mere weeks. Then it blows away, and it's as if it was never there.

Pray: Home can be many things, and safe and secure is only one variation. Because home is precarious for so many, because home does not always shelter as it should, because home can disintegrate and crumble long before we're ready to lose it, because of all this, we have our Home in You.
