Chilling by the Sea

Currently, I'm sitting in my little villa, looking out onto the Sea of Galilee. Our week is nearing an end. Just one more day to enjoy this beauty of the sea and the land where Jesus lived. The land where Jesus performed miracles by healing the sick and casting out demons.

It's been such a full week and there is so much I want to write, but it'll have to be for another time.

Here's just a little snipet from our boat ride from Tiberius to Ginosar. While on the water, we read the account of when Jesus calmed the sea. "What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?" Matthew 8:23-27
And later we stopped off on the side of the road to observe the most magnificent sunset.
The Lord is good, all the time. Let me never forget His majesty.

Midterm Week

Midterms week may have been the most brutal week of my short life.

Sunday: Studied all day for Monday's crazy History midterm. 100 short answer questions, never again please.
Monday: History midterm and class until 6pm.
Tuesday: 6 hours straight of class. Study for Archaeology midterm.
Wednesday: Field trip to the Shephelah. Gone all day from 8am till 8pm. Study for Archaeology midterm until 2am.
Thursday: Archeology midterm along with 6 straight hours of class. Write 3 page report and study for Land and Bible test.
Friday: Land and Bible test. Four hours of class. Shabbat dinner and service. Study and take Jewish Culture test. Start packing for Galilee trip at 12:30am.

We defintely put the "study" in study abroad. It was a rough week, but God is so faithful. Tomorrow we head out to Galilee for an 8 day trip. I'm so excited I could barely sleep!

Staying Afloat

in the Dead Sea!
and smothering ourselves in Dead Sea mud.
Can it get much better than this?
