Sitting in O’Hare airport waiting to board in an hour. We’ve a ten and a half hour flight to Istanbul, Turkey, then a two hour flight on to Tel Aviv. It will be tomorrow afternoon when we arrive. I’ve finally gotten excited about the trip.
The last few weeks have been a challenge leaching my usual anticipation for travel from me. I had two weeks worth of influenza that ended with a doctor visit and medication to make sure I was healthy enough to travel. The news that my best friend was losing her battle with cancer. My ninety-five-year-old mother-in-law in the hospital all last week only being discharged today.
Needless to say I’ve been a bit stressed. During this I’ve also been working to get my next book ready for release. Check out the Little Bits Blog to find out about that.
Here’s our motley crew. We’re fourteen including our senior and associate pastor. Back row left to right are:
Kevin, Don, Marcia, Lori, Jeannie, Adell, Betty, Steve, me(Sophie/Sue)
Pam, Rick, Patti, Pastor Seth, Pastor Luke
My goal is to post some images of what we see each day and my thoughts. I did this last year when we went on a Mediterranean cruise last summer for our 40th wedding anniversary. It is a way for me to actually do something with the photos I take. Makes a nice memory. That’s the goal anyway. I was successful with it last year so I anticipate the same this trip.
In His Steps
My church offered the opportunity to travel for 10 days in Israel. I jumped at the chance. So daily I will be posting images and comments. I hope you are blessed with what I share.
This blog is dedicated to BL who is soon to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We’ve been friends for over 40 years, raised our boys together, and our lives should have had many more years along side each other. God had other plans. We will be together for eternity.
I love you and will miss you terribly.
