A Pilgrims Journey – Part II

“Oh, the glory of what’s in store;

Crayola’s many colors

Beyond the open door.

The green of Galilee’s hillsides.

The orange of the sun.


The stillness of the water.

The brown of En Gedi’s run.


The aqua of salt shores,

Dead Sea 

Masada’s red cliffs to soar.

The midnight of the City.

Mount Scopes and its view

Open the eyes of wonder,

Beholding only You!


October 18th…three months and counting before the group and I begin our 2018 pilgrimage! Looking forward to what lies ahead.

  1. Denise, I am so excited about your upcoming trip in three months! I would be counting my days, too. May it be a blessed, safe journey. Hugs, Robin 💐 🌈 definitely all the colors!!


    1. Thank you Robin! I can’t believe we are almost to the end of October already! Thank you for your blessed comment! Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by:) Denise


  2. Beautiful pictures. So many groups, churches, individuals, intercessory prayer teams, evangelists, ordinary folk and massive numbers of ‘tourists’ continue to go there. Wonderful and amazing. What a blessing for the Israeli economy. I would be counting down the days if I knew I too was ‘going’. Mine will always have to be a pilgrimage of the heart. Do take some more amazing pictures. Blessing and love.

    1. Thank you Faye:) Yes, as simple as it sounds, I know part of the reason He calls us back, many of our group have made the journey several times before, is because He knows the shopkeeper, the hotel manager, the man who takes you out on the Sea, depend on travelers for their every day income. He truly is a God Who supplies all our needs! God bless you Faye:)
