Shabbat Is Almost Here

Shabbat is almost HERE! I am so excited! Yesterday we walked down to the grocery store to miss the rush on Fri.

Oh I forget to mention that we left Jerusalem earlier this week and have now moved to Afula. We are staying on top of Givat Moreh. This is where Gideon 300’s stood with the midianites below. You also get a spectacular view of the Jezreel Valley, which has so many stories and references to it that I won’t name them all but I will put down one.

Hos 1:11  Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

This hill/mountain has a beautiful view of the valley.DSCF7983

We aren’t even 1/2 way down to the store yet. But all the valley is full of fields below.

Now back to my original subject. The walk down took 30 min and then we took the bus back up. I now wish I had a picture of all the grocery bags we came back with but I don’t. So just imagine enough food for six people to last until Monday or Tuesday. That is how much we had to hull up.

So we took the bus. Which was fun, and Dad lost his balance about 4 times going around tight turns and once he nearly fell over if it wasn’t for the strap he was hanging onto he would have. It was a good bus ride, and I am learning the importance of when coming to Israel or any country to at least learn the numbers in their language.

Well have a beautiful Shabbat.

  1. Yeah I’m glad we took the bus after shopping, we would’ve never made it back up the hill with all the bags of groceries we got. The mall further down from the Supermarket was nice too, there was a bookstore with a good selection of English books in the back, above the bookstore was Office Depot, and an art store was located beside the bookstore.
