Saturday pondering:

1. When checking into Hospital Emergency Room  I think it sounds odd to be asked, โ€œwhat is your religion preference?โ€
(a greater liking for one alternative over another or others.) 2.  Unpacking from a trip
EVERYTHING (worn or not, new or old) gets washed!

3. Thinly sliced honey roasted turkey with chipotle sauce using Boston leaf lettuce to wrap is amazingness.

4. Challah to come; pumpkin butter with pecans sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds.

5. Sitting in my Listening Chair puts everything into perspective!
Welcome Home 
Brucie style!
For now, I want to pause and breathe in all of Israelโ€™s sights, sounds, smells, scriptures, people and places. I want to hug my Bible and thank God for the encounters and experiences!
Tomorrow is our final day in Jerusalem. I am coming home with more to pray for then when I left! I will carry these places and most of all these people in prayer and intercession! God, give me your heart for Israel and your chosen people!

Yad Vasheem
and more ...
Street of Righteous Gentiles where over two thousand trees planted for Gentiles who hid and saved Jews during the Holocaust! 
Corrie ten Boom tree has been replanted. The night she died the following morning her tree had died as well. ๐Ÿ˜ข
Morning in Jerusalem!
Isnโ€™t she beautiful!

Off to Yad Vasheem.
โ€œWe teach our people to remember not to hate.โ€ Ilan

Rain!
Silly moment!
In Israel with the most wonderful peeps!
Conversation with our Lord at En Gedi.
Or ... wherever you happen to linger today Heโ€™s there to meet with you! Scriptures are wonderful conversation starters!

Shabbat Shalom! 
May the peace of God be like a fire around you and the Glory in your midst! 
Zechariah 2:1-5

Israeli market hustle bustle as families prepare for Shabbat! In a few hours this cordouirs will be silent.  Ilan found a bakery and bought me a fresh warm loaf of raisin Challah bread! Shabbat Shalom!
Morning arise awake at Aroma!
The entire bus applauded Ilan! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ† #coffee #pastries #cometoamerica
Tonight begins Simchat Torah which means โ€œRejoicing in Torah.โ€
The Jewish people mark the end of the annual cycle of weekly Torah readings and the beginning of the new cycle. (Genesis to Deuteronomy.) It is a joyous holiday that celebrates the Jewish LOVE of Torah and study.
Dining tables dressed with linen tablecloths and napkins, elaborate buffet and CHALLAH! 
PS I showed them some pictures of my Challah and they were duly impressed. They said theyโ€™d hire me if I wanted a job!!! #simchattorah #challah
