Then I noticed that I was... Read more
Planning in advance
Breakfast and dinner are included in the price of my trip to Israel. However, lunch is at our own expense. One person told us to expect to spend $25 per day for lunch. To me, that's a lot of money. I was also told that breakfast and dinner w... Read more

3 weeks in--
Had my "month's" check up with the doctor today. They couldn't get any blood out of me the last time, so I fasted and drank tons of water today and they STILL couldn't get any blood out of me. (Do I have any?) She dug the needle in pretty far... Read more

It's been pointed out to me that the term "Zionist" has multiple connotations.
When I said that my pastor had asked us to be Christian Zionists, I described what that meant--that the Jewish people are God's chosen people and that has not cha... Read more
A Night to Honor Israel
What a wonderful evening.
Held at Promiseland church (a large pentecostal church), it was almost a packed house. They handed out Israeli and American flags at the door, had Israeli items for sale in the lobby, and had a harpist playing in ... Read more

It was such a blessing in many ways. However, it's a 4 hour drive and I just got back in and I'm beat. I'll write more later.
Lovely to come home to all the spark messages! Thank you!... Read more
It's the little, every day blessings that warm the heart. The magnificent blessings are those that awe you and bring you to your knees before a magnificent Lord. But, the little blessings get us through the day.
As most of you know, I do ... Read more

It's about discerning the voice of God.
The first chapter talks about how t... Read more
