If all goes well I would like to take another trip overseas next spring.I have learned my lesson tho and don't make definite plans anymore.That is the Lords doing.He alone only knows my future.The best I can do is to prepare my soul,body and spirit for His future blessings. In 2016 I took a trip to Israel and all was fine and I was on top of the world.But the Lord told me that my faith in Him would be tested.Wow,was it ever! Because 2017 became one of my worst years ever.But I came through it much stronger and my faith in Him and myself was strengthened.He showed me that 2017 was my year of testing and now 2018 is my year of preparation for 2019 which will be my year of blessing. So I'm excited about 2019 but now here in 2018 I must simply wait on Him and prepare my soul,body and spirit and,of course,save my money.And write lots of music.
If the Lord is willing I hope to be gone for 3 months. It will be spring time so the weather will be perfect.I will be leaving for the Holy Land again for 3 weeks on April 9th 2019 for another incredible adventure and to catch up on things I missed on my last trip.Then to Jordan to visit Petra. I am already preparing for the trip.There were a lot of things I missed on my last trip and a lot of new things I want to discover about the land and the culture and about myself.Going to the Holy Land truly does make the Bible come alive!...Then off to Italy for a month to be inspired by it's culture and it's people.Then I will spend a month in France.I want to soak in the culinary delights and the arts and visit the castles and the quaint country side villages and visit the place of my ancestry.I will also spend some time in Spain.
I could even just spend the whole 3 months in Israel hoping to catch up with my good friend Judy and also go to Jordan to visit Petra.I would love to do that.
