Dead Sea – the road by which I went.

Make yourself guidepost;

Consider well the highway,

The road by which you went.”

  1. Like your pictures. Am always encouraged by your writing and your passion. Israel will always be for me a prayer and a heart journey. I probably will never go but as the Lord wills – all things are indeed possible. The journey through the eyes of someone with faith indeed takes me there. Thank you.
