ALL the Israel Posts PLUS Our Best 10 Israel Photos

Trip to israel

Going to Israel this year was the most exciting thing that ever happened to me. Yes, I know it’s a big statement to make. I like to make my statements GRANDE!!!

Other than my wedding day and the births of my children, this was the BEST!!!!!

I wrote, and wrote, and wrote about it, but I have yet to put all of that information into one source, so that’s what we are doing today. Below you will find links to every single one of my articles about Israel.

By the way, Alan went back over there again a few weeks ago. I could NOT wait to see his pictures because he travelled to a few places I had not, but alas, the man took almost zero pictures.

Don’t boo him, though, y’all.

Between the time he left, and the week he got back, literally EVERYTHING broke at our
house. It SHOULD have cost us thousands, and I do mean thousands of dollars to fix it all, but it cost only a few hundred.

How? Because Alan fixed our air conditioning unit, the fence that the storm blew over, and he replaced the dryer and the garage door opener, with help from DaddyO on the fence.

I even bought a dented dryer to save $500, and Alan opened up the dryer, popped out the dent, and BAM! We have a $1000 energy saving dryer that we bought for only $500 that works perfectly and has no dent.

Thank you, Alan and DaddyO!!

Now onto Israel!!!

We got ya covered. 10 of our Faves (Okay..14…):

Looking over the ancient ruins of Capernaum to the Sea of Galilee.

The black stone wall on bottom is from the sanctuary that Jesus taught in. The white stone sanctuary on top of it was built in the 400s.

I just thought this was beautiful.

We went in June, and these flowers were blooming everywhere. I wanted to pack one of those plants in my suitcase!

Because photos of people sleeping in cars are funny…they just are..

House of Simon the Tanner….because you have no idea how many times Julie and I walked around Old Jaffa looking for this!

We walked the 3 mile beach-side route from Tel Aviv to Jaffa. THIS was our view.

Because everyone should have good traveling buddies!

The famous dome, right behind the Western Wall. Photos aren’t allowed past security, so I failed to get a good Wall pic.

Golgotha. That window is showing just a segment of the earthquake damage from the earthquake mentioned in the Bible that took place when Jesus died on the cross. You can actually look way down and see the split rock going deep down, when you’re there in person.

This enormous church stands on top of the place where Jesus was crucified as well as where he was buried and rose again.

King David’s Tomb!

Jerusalem, as seen standing on the Mount of Olives

So many stories from this amazing trip!

I hope you can take some time to click on the links and read and see more about this incredible country.

Next up: London! Alan is helping me put together a post from his most recent trip there. It was quite a day two weeks ago, waking up to news of a subway bombing in London…while Alan was riding the thing all day long. I told Alan before he left us that London made me more nervous than Israel, and yeah…that happened. But that’s another story for another day. He’s back safe and sound now, anyway. Thank the Lord!!
