January reflections

What a month!
Baptism in the River Jordan
  • January 1  - woke up on the Mediterranean coast.  The next two weeks were a whirlwind.  Physically strenuous. Emotionally exhilarating.  
  • Sailing on the Sea of Galilee,  climbing the hills of Jerusalem
Plane wing being de-iced
  • Flew home January 11 --  a perfect day of travel for me -- others were stuck due to snow, but Delta and God got me through!
  • Snowbound for a few days, which gave a chance to rest and begin some great books.
  • Son-in-law's brain tumor came back. Prayer warriors uniting.
    • My double aunt's funeral was yesterday.  Double because she was Mother's sister and married to Daddy's brother, so I saw cousins on both sides of the family ... some I hadn't seen since we were children.   I like what Tracey C. wrote on FB: "Cousins are the first friends most people ever have as children. No one will ever understand your crazy family like your cousins. Even if you haven't talked much lately."
    How was your month?

    So true about cousins! Also, the Sea of Galilee is beautiful. I wish I could go back and visit again, but not to be right now.

    Have a good week!
