Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Today Is Friday But Sunday Is Coming!

 These pictures are some I took on a trip to Israel last year.


The garden where He prayed and the Disciples slept.

 I wonder if the poppies were blooming that sad Friday.

The hills of Jerusalem - not quite as populated in that day but still a metropolis for the time.

 I looked out over that beloved land and wept.

My husband prayed at The Wailing Wall.


Today is Friday, but Sunday is coming!

Wonderful memories! This week has been full of them for me too, as I read the accounts of Jesus final days on earth. We are both blended to have walked in his footsteps, aren't we. Xx

Thank you so much for sharing your pictures once again. Your husband praying is my favorite. I love to see strong men come under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. It gives me goose bumps. My favorite scene a few years ago was getting up late one night when I knew my husband was troubled and I found him reading his Bible in his chair. He could not have done anything to have made me love him more than seeing him alone with His God. I felt safe.
Blessings
Jane
