as a hen gathers her chicks...

"...how often I have longed to gather your children together,

as a hen gathers her chicks..."

~Matthew 23:37
(in case you miss the connection, this plant is commonly known as a 'hen and chicks' plant)


  1. How cute, I used to have one and need to get one again. My granny always said "hen and biddies".

  2. When I was a little girl our next door neighbor loved those plants and had a whole bunch. I haven't thought of them in years and am enjoying the memory ... and especially the verse!

    If you're interested, I did a post on this a little while back, Under His Wings. I hope it's okay with you for me to put the link here. (You're more than welcome to delete this if you'd prefer not to have the link.)

  3. Yep, I was one of the clueless ones, although I am fascinated by the fact this is called that. It really does seem like an apt name.
