Beautiful Israel

ISRAEL NOVEMBER 2017

Today while going through my photo’s I came across some I took on my trip to Israel last November 2017.

This photo doesn’t do this any justice. This tree along with the whole garden was simply beautiful. Along with the beauty of the garden was great weather-no need for winter clothing. September weather in November.

I don’t know where were or the name of the garden. If you ever desired to make a trip to Israel, start saving your coins and set a date. You won’t be disappointed.

I pray for the continual peace of God that met me there and hung out with me the whole time I was there. God bless Israel.

Moving day is fast approaching. Downsizing is hard for me to do. Reducing a house full of furnishings to fit in a two-bedroom apartment is trying to drive me crazy. I like all my belongings but can’t take of them along.

I worked myself up to the point of several panic attacks. Something I’ve never encountered before. I’ve been eating, sleeping and over thinking how to pull this off.

Then there is my guitar lesson. I’ve cancelled them more than I’ve gone in the last month or so. I couldn’t pick my guitar out in a lineup because I haven’t taken it out to practice for a while. There hasn’t been a spare moment.

My instructor phoned me the other day to press me to pick a day to show up because the semester was ending. I sacrificed some packing time to take my last lesson.

As the instructor tended to a few things, I started playing one of my lessons (not very well). In a flash peace like a river washed over me. With no understanding how it happened I was no longer tense. My stomach stopped hurting. All was well with me from the first strum.

I’ve never experienced peace like that from music. I want more of that and not just for me. I want the music I play to embody that peace to rest on everyone who hears it.

May you find the peace you need in the music you listen to.
