Sukkot in Israel, Day 8, The Shuk, Jaffa Gate and the Wailing Wall

Maggie and Isaac went out to the garden to have breakfast before Hadassah and I. We were taking a bit longer to get ready because the shower situation in the room was a little difficult. I had to hold the shower head over her as she showered. It reminded me of being at the tipi. I would have her stand in the galvanized tub outside the tipi and while she scrubbed herself I would pour warm water over her that I had heated on the woodstove. I would always get a little wet with her. I was doing the same thing here except the tub wasn’t galvanize… Continue reading

Sukkot in Israel, Day 7, Fauzi Azar Inn and the Nazareth Village

The Fauzi Azar Inn was one of the most beautiful places we stayed in Israel, but the light and the noise (as it is a hostel) made it a struggle for Isaac and I to sleep. I don’t believe I have had a solid sleep yet, which has made getting better from my cold and herpes attack nearly impossible. I will admit that the bed was the softest we experienced in our travel to Israel. We have discovered that Jews tend to like harder mattresses and Arabs like softer ones. At least by the end of our trip that is what we deducted…. Continue reading

Sukkot in Israel: Day 6, An Olive Oil Press, Nazareth and an Arab Mansion

I woke up early and went for a small hike up the hill behind the Kibbutz. The sky was dark and cloudy. It looked like it was going to rain. I didn’t care. I just wanted to try to make some room for my heart to experience the land I was in. Can’t do that inside. Gotta get outside. Some really cool looking cows were grazing on the hill. I loved their colors; they matched the scenery of red rock, stone and dirt. Continue reading

Sukkot in Israel: Day 5, Rimon Winery in Northern Israel and Tzfat (Safed)

Today was an awesome day compared to yesterday! We didn’t get up as early as we thought we were going to. I guess Derek had a hard time sleeping outside on the deck in our “sukkah” because of the noise of the neighbors. Bummer! But nevertheless we were glad he was here to spend another day of Sukkot with us! Continue reading

Sukkot in Israel: Day 4, Kibbutz Kadarim, the Sea of Galilee and Tiberius

This was a day of mixed feelings.

To start off the day, Isaac and I got up early and walked up a hill behind the Kibbutz to watch and photograph the sunrise. We could see the full moon of Sukkot above the hill and we walked towards it…. Continue reading

The Real Meaning Behind Christmas

Originally posted on The Truth & The Light Ministries:
We all know that pagans, witches, seculars, and Satanist all celebrate Christmas. They’ve been doing so for many years, way before the birth of Christ.  We can see on Jeremiah 10:3…

Make Homemade Bread with me!

I can’t write a recipe for the life of me. I have this “what-do-I-need-to-use-up?” and let’s throw “a-little-of-this-and-that-into-the-bowl” method to my kitchen madness. It’s hard when you have an artistic approach to baking and cooking to “share” a recipe, because for me baking and cooking isn’t mechanical. I feel it. Therefore, because many of my friends have asked for my homemade bread recipe, instead of writing it down LOL, I made a video! Watch and I’ll show you how to make my mom’s homemade bread! It is literally the best bread in the whole world! I modified it a bit from my mom’s…. but heck! No one makes better bread than mom — right? Continue reading
