Off on holiday again. This time to Israel. It was probably more an experience than a holiday. I had been warned it would be energetic and it certainly was. In the 9 days we packed in about 12 days worth of sight-seeing.
Holiday memories soon fade away, but I don’t think these memories will ever fade. Not only were there many interesting places to see but I now read my Bible with more understanding. I read this morning that Jesus was in Galilee. I’ve been there too. Although the buildings and some of the landscape have changed, the sea hasn’t. I can truly imagine Jesus being there.
We started in Jerusalem with two walking tours, so much to see. I did opt out of one of the tours but still saw plenty. One of the best memories was the view from the Mount of Olives (No longer just a name, but now a place to me) The view down to the Kidron Valley and up to Jerusalem was unforgetable.
Unfortunately on the Mount there was a church of the Teardrop, the place where Jesus was supposed to have cried over the fate of Jerusalem. (Wherever anything Biblical has happened, a church has been erected)
