Israel! Israel! Israel!

ISRAEL is my most favorite of all places in the world! No, I haven't visited it yet but I am sure to go some day! I would say I am in love with Israel!

I love watching Israeli movies just because I love to see the places and the people. When I see someone tall and handsome, I would imagine King Saul would have been like that; when I see someone not-so-tall, but very fair with curly hair and beautiful eyes, I would think King David would have been like that. The beautiful women remind me of Esther, Ruth, Abigail, Bathsheba - the women of beauty in the Bible. A young, solemn, pious girl would remind me of Mary...

Always Israel has been my favorite name too. I am blessed to be married to a Israel! My first name Hephzibah is from the Bible (Isaiah: 62:4), a Hebrew word meaning "God's Delight". Hephzibah & Israel together would mean "God's Delight Israel". How beautiful!

Now the reason I am so thrilled today is that I have had a visitor checking out my blog from ISRAEL! The very same Israel that has been my love and delight over all these years! The very same Israel I read about, hear about, dream about & hope to see about sometime.... The very same Israel that was hand picked by God Himself, blessed by Him, loved by Him, led by Him and Him alone!

Thank you Visitor! You made my day! Shalom to you and yours!
