We’ve been away for a few days. Well for several days. Somewhere hot and sunny – well nearly all the time! We did have a day of fog which scuppered our plans, but that was only one day! Where have we been? Oh sorry – we’ve been to Israel. The Land. A special place for me. A place I didn’t want to go to the first time. A place where I met with God and was healed. A place that just shouted come back – so we went! And this time we took our son. Today I am going to share some views with you. A taster of the sights and sounds. A bit of imagination needed there, but I’m sure you will manage to conjure up the relevant noises! So here we go……
Nattanya, near Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast.
Rocks at Caesaria Maritime further up the coast.
Inland and our first view of the Sea of Galilee.
The first of many flowers.
A regal visitor at the Kibbutz Ma’aghan.
Waterfalls in the Golan.
Mosaics in the Jezreal Valley.
Down to the Dead Sea for that all important bob up and down!
And then settling into Jerusalem for what proved to be a reflective time. We celebrated the Shabbatt meal and the Pessach meal and now with Easter a round the corner, we come to contemplate the risen Lord. Jesus has done a lot of prodding and left me with a lot to think about. Some of which I will share, but for now I leave you with some of my images. Happy Easter!
