Sabbath School

Today I had an absolutely marvelous Sabbath, and went to the Garden of Gethsemene after church and wrote pages and pages in my journal. We got special access to a private garden without any tourists. Outside the garden there were cars honking, men shouting angrily in Arabic, and lots of contention. Even with that noise, it was quiet and peaceful in the walls of the garden. It made me realize that in this world of chaos, frustration and mixed messages; Christ is our protected garden we can go to and feel peace.

I will be taking an 8-day hiatus to traverse continents and engage in modes of travel including bus, airplane, taxi, overnight train and even camel! (No joke!)

Stay tuned for some of the most extraordinary blog posts of your blog-reading history! Thanks for reading!


  1. This will be the longest eight days of my life waiting for your next post! Wait--maybe the eight days prior to your birth were the longest. Or the eight days when you were in the ICU as a baby. Or the eight days we didn't hear from you when you were in Guatemala. At any rate, you've kept us waiting most of your life, kiddo!

  2. Can't wait to see your pictures of the camel!:)

  3. Faith, I am so glad that I can follow your time in Jerusalem. I love your blog. The pictures are great! You will have the time of your life there. You look great. Miss you here at work. Sue

  4. I love your mother's comment. :) Have so much fun! That's so great...we'll look forward to hearing about it!
