(Sea of Galilea by Jon Arnold)

Today has been one of those days where my heart longs for Israel. To be able to go to the Kotel {Western Wall} and cry out to my Abba. Nothing is wrong, at least not really. I just long to feel connected to Israel. I've been looking at pictures and some are just breath taking. I know that it's not all beautiful. I know that it can be dangerous, and that there is much conflict. But that doesn't change my love for the land and the people. To be able to step foot on the hallowed streets of Jerusalem would be a dream come true. Or getting to watch the sun set on the beaches of Tel Aviv, or walk through the markets smelling spices. There is just so much that speaks to all of my senses. My body is here, but my mind and my heart are in Israel.

And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. Ezekiel 34:13

A big step

My husband and I are taking a really big step (to us at least). We've decided to wear tzittzit! I know to some this may seem like an odd step or maybe like a really simple one. But for us it's both logical and difficult. Since it's Shabbat (or at least about to be) I won't get into it. But I will update you all on how this has worked out.

Shabbat Shalom
