Trip to Israel

We just returned from an incredible trip and tour of Israel. My second time in "the Land", and we were able to travel from one corner to another and see so much it was beyond description. What a joyous time! Singing and leading praise on the Sea of Galilee, with a mirror like surface and a soft breeze blowing. 
Singing at a serious and somber Yom Ha'Shoa service and then visiting Yad Va'Shem the Holocaust museum. Visiting the Valley of tears at the Golan and reliving the 73 Yom Kippur War. Pausing to listen to the sirens as we honored the war dead.
On a lighter side- floaing in the Dead Sea, seeing the place King David stayed in the desert, and then the caves in Qumram where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
Much more to tell ....and pictures to come
