Hi and welcome to a look inside Israel. Well, today we look inside our Sis in Jerusalem’s heart as she thanks all of you for reading and commenting and praying like you do! I second her . ..Thank you and God bless you! Now, here she is . . .
I am sorry that I am writing this from work. I would so rather sit down with some quiet time and space and really share (or try to) the thankfulness in my heart for you. Alas, there is no quiet spot at home right now, (my husband’s injury has added many demands. As he is backslidden, he is also very depressed and I would be ever so thankful for prayer for him to return to his first love) so if it is to be done, it will be done this way, and I ask for your grace.
For more then 18 years I have written these letters to dear friends…the changes – having come to the center of the world from the ends of the earth (a small village in Alaska) – at not-a-young age…were dramatic, and it was given to me to share what I was seeing, hearing, experiencing as HIS.
Over the years, so many of my friends have ‘moved on’ and I often feel a sense of ‘disappointment’ or even ‘loss’ as I hear from people less and less. Then Deb began to re-post my emails. I can not tell you how moved I have been by your responses. They are fresh! They are real! So many of those whom I write to now have come on tours and read much and really know more then I do about so many things. They have met other people from here and receive other newsletters…and suddenly I get responses from YOU. And some of you say ‘I never knew this’ or ‘I wanted to understand this’, and my heart literally flutters with joy that there is still a reason to share what is still so amazing to me…and what I will still be learning until He says ‘It is finished’…and then we all shall STILL be found learning!
I have been so encouraged by your encouragement.
I am not NEARLY as ‘spiritual’ as some of you seem to think :-[ I am just a sheep trying to do what I am told…like all of you.
Thank you for ‘receiving me’. You are really a blessing!
lovingly, your sis (from work)
