Saturday Scavenger Hunt

I've liked seeing Churlita's posts about the scavenger hunt so I hunted down via dmarks to Random Crap to find the Hunt. This week's word is Reason. The first thing that came to my mind, despite the fact that Christmas is long gone, is the phrase 'Jesus is the reason for the season.'

This is a print/painting that we found in my mom's basement when we were cleaning out the house. Noone in my immediate family is very religious, but my husband is, and I actually really liked the image, so we took it and it's hanging in the 'study'. If you can't see it very well, it's Jesus sitting up on the mountain meditating before all the events are put into motion to crucify him. I also chose this because I feel some empathy in a very tangential way (obviously I'm not going to get tortured and crucified). I'm sitting within myself thinking about my self, my marriage, and wanting to give in and stay but trying to gather strength and keep it to do what is right for me. It's so difficult though.

Well done and welcome to the scavenger hunt.....thanks for stopping by as well. Feel free to mosey on over whenever, the light is always on and coffee is always in the pot.

I liked the word chosen this week, it is very open ended and subject to all sorts of interpretations. Yours is another interesting look at it.

I am adding your link to the page so others can come and check you out.

Hi No Regrets. Welcome to our little diversion. That is a pretty, sort of old fashioned picture. I can see why you liked it.

Hi. Welcome to the Savenger Hunt. Glad you could figure out something with the word I picked. It was tough. You did well.

I'm not much of a religious person either, but I love that painting. Good job with the "reason" word!

It is a good image. I've seen a lot of images of Christ that repeat so much that they seem cliched. I've not seen one like this, however.

Nice shot. I'm so glad you're playing.

That's quite a powerful image.
