Mediterranean Memories

“Caesarea

On the Sea.

Come and

Walk these

Mediterranean memories

With me.”

“But Festus (the Roman governor of Judah. 52 AD to 59 AD) answered that Paul should be kept at Caesarea…” Acts 25:4 NKJV

“Then Agrippa said to Festus, ‘I would like to hear the man myself…” Act 25:22 NKJV

“So the next day, when Agrippa and Bernie had come with great pomp entered the auditorium…Fetus command Paul brought in.” Acts 25:23 NKJV

“So Paul stretched out his hand and answered for himself.”

‘I think myself happy, King Agrippa,

Because today I shall answer myself before you…”

Acts 26:1 NKJV

En Gedi – David – Just a “kid”

We have been blessed with copious amounts of rain for the past week here in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma.

The sun is coming from its hiding place and I thought I would share some travel pictures of David’s hiding place – En Gedi captured in January 2018.

“Then David went up from there and dwelt in the strongholds at En Gedi.” 1 Samuel 23:29 NKJV

As we made our way up the dry path we could hear the trickle of water.

David would have hid from Saul in a cave like these at En Gedi.

I couldn’t wait to put my hand and feel the cool water that David felt.

En Gedi means the “fountain of the kid”.

Seems appropriate “the fountain of the kid”.

David would have been in his twenties when he hid from Saul at En Gedi.

Just a kid, and look,

David’s mighty men!

Hope you enjoyed a brief trip to En Gedi Natural Reserve at the Dead Sea.

Morning Tide

“Light broke the sky

Before the morning

Timed rise.

Pink of the tide

Revealed in

His eyes.”

“But when the morning had

Now come,

Jesus stood on the shore;

Yet the disciples

Did not know

That it was Jesus.”

John 21:4 NKJV

Dipped In Colors

 

“Banners raised

We seize the day.

Dipped in colors

The pilgrim’s way.”

“He brought me to the

Banqueting house,

And His banner

Over me was love.”

Song of Solomon 2:4 NKJV

 

“You enlarge my path

Under me,

So my feet did not slip.”

Psalm 18:36 NKJV

Pilgrimage in Israel

Flocks of Song

“Birds above

Their morning call.

Palm trees tower

Growing tall.

Morning awakens

Not by alarm,

But in the movement of

Sea gulls and their

Flocks of song.”

 

“Praise the LORD from the heavens,

Praise Him in the heights above…

Praise the LORD from the earth,

You great sea creatures and all

Ocean depths…

Wild animals and all cattle,

Small creatures and flying birds…”

Psalm 148:1-10 NIV

Friendships to Keep

“How can one sleep

When hidden so deep

Are memories of journey

And friendships to keep.”

Final Hello

2018-01-18 – Journal Note:

“We are running along the east side of Lake Erie – Cleveland.

Snow, like frosting, covers the land below as we head northeast toward Canada.”

“It’s night now

Towns glowing below.

Orange sunset to the West

Waving its final hello.”

Never The Same

“Stepping out into the

Cool dark air.

One lone bird

Welcomes my presence here.

 

“Don’t lay inside

In a jetlag night.’

Step outside and

Absorb the light.”

 

Once to be experienced

In this life of change.

Resting on the shore of Galilee –

Never the same.”

Through Travel Eyes

“What made you take this trip again?

You’ve been there once and

Twice my friend.

 

What draws you back

To fly the skies?

Distant lands through

Travel eyes.

 

What do you find so

Far from home?

To cause your heart

To want to roam?

 

‘There is no answer of

Come and see,

Except for one;

“Follow Me.”’

 

“The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee,

And He found Philip and said to him,

“Follow Me.” John 1:43 NKJV
