Words for Wednesday

'Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord swept the sea back by a strong east wind all night, and turned the sea into dry land, so the waters were divided. And the sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea on the dry land, and the waters were like a wall to them, on the right hand and on their left.'
Exodus 14:21, 22

'Moses Parting the Red Sea'
David Yohanan, Lithograph
Jerusalem

Happy Passover!

Nice. Hope we can pass over the bad enonomy smoothly.

That is a fascinating graphic, full of signals and symbols. I could gaze at it for a long time and always find something new.

Happy Passover.

Hey Jade...how about that the bad economy can 'passover' us! The phrase, Passover, comes from when God saw the blood of the sacrificed lamb on the doorposts of the homes of the Jewish families and the spirit of death 'passed over' them so that their first born would live...

feefofoto...I thought so as well when I found it...he's a very interesting artist...Happy Passover!!

Hiya Kim...I KNOW...his work really touched me...he's been noted in Israel since he was 12 years old, and he's been extremely prolific!!! Passover is a wonderful celebration of freedom, and we remember that each year....have a Happy Easter...yes, they're both early, but, it's all connected...:))

Hi Amy! Thank you so much for your comforting words, for sharing your love and your prayers.

Yesterday was perfect because she went home with Lord.

Joel and I also went through your post. Right now I'm feeling what you went through because even if Nanay Ats is not my real mother, she was like a real one to me.

Thanks again. Happy Easter.

*hugs*
