For George - Living in Israel

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon @George

Hope you and the family are well.

I hope you don't mind me asking this question. I read all your worthy devotions that you post. But I am absolutely fascinated, what is it like living in Israel, so close to where Jesus lived? 

God Bless, 

Becky.

Every day is an adventure.  Today, one of my congregants who suffered a stroke 2 months ago came to the house for dinner.  So here we were -- 4 kids, myself and this man.  I made Chicken Stir Fry, Rice, and salad along with challah.  So the kids and I are discussing LGBT issues ... if you can believe that!   It was a long lengthy conversation ... and more than interesting to say the least!

My favorite part of the night was his retelling of how he broke out of the hospital!  

So he was in the hospital for a few days and wanted to leave ... but they wouldn't let him.  So he snuck into the bathroom, placed his real clothes under his hospital clothes and snuck into bed.  When the nurses came in and left ... he snuck out of his bed.  Watched the desk .. and when the guy wasn't looking ... he made his daring escape.  Knowing that he probably couldn't leave the front door ... he proceeded to the roof.  And found a ladder that extended down to the garden below.  He climbed down the ladder ... out the garden ... to the bus stop ... with no cash in hand ... a man just gave him 50 shekels to get home!  And he was doing this all with tubes going out his nose ... things around his wrist!  LOL!  He was like nearly 80 year old James Bond ... I couldn't stop laughing ... 

Of course, I'm writing this on a Shabbat evening ... but I couldn't sleep ... so I thought I take one last look on the forums before I took off for the weekend.   :)

Have a blessed weekend ... and let every day be an adventure!  :)
