I never meant for this site to turn into a photo-journaling tour, but I'm afraid it's been turning into that recently. I'm going to try to stem that tide. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but words are still indispensable. Pictures are easier, though, because writing is like painting. It's easier to post a picture painted by God and recorded by a camera than it is to take the ideas God's created and try to paint them yourself.
But tonight I'm going to just keep the aforementioned tide rolling in, because I have some great pictures from one year ago exactly, and I think that they say a lot (they say a lot more if you've been there, but they speak either way). I mean Israel:
ORTHODOX JEWS FROM THE OLD CITY WALLS (JAFFA GATE)
SUNSET OVER THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM FROM THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
You should go.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May they prosper who love you.
May peace be within your walls,
And prosperity within your palaces."
For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, "May peace be within you."
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good. – Psalm 122:6-9
