Thankful for the time I have been given and 2017 is the year when I’ll continue to stop and smell the roses. Wishing you all a blessed and happy 2017! So much love from Israel
My time here in Israel is coming to an end and I just felt it’s time to start sharing more of my everyday adventures with you guys- my head and heart is packed to the max so it might not always come out the way I want- I’m also sharing pictures so you can see for your self. It’s so different, amazing, crazy, normal, spiritual, holy, easy, fun, overwhelming, tough, yalla yalla balagan to be living here. What means the most though is the connection I feel to this place and the everlasting friendships I’m making. I’ve got two best friends here- Amanda being one of them. Tonight she took me out for a pre birthday dinner, we enjoyed some quality girl talk time 🙂 Ended the evening by watching some techno dancing happy guys spreading the good news of Judaism outside of the Central Bus station.
Oh and tonight’s sunset though! No filter what so ever- it was magical. Good night and so much love from Israel
Thank you everyone who congratulated me on my birthday- it was a warm- sunny- wonderful day spent in the Jerusalem wilderness hiking with another nature lover Tabita from Germany. It had a perfect ending to it- A Birthday party together with the other volunteers. My roommate surprised me with a flower reef- officially making me the happiest girl ever- since I love Midsummer- and flowers- I felt like a flower queen! Thank You God for giving me another year and blessing my life so greatly and filling it with so much love, friendship and joy. Sending all the ❤️❤️❤️ in the world- from Israel
Nu grönskar det i dalens famn,
nu doftar äng och lid.
Kom med, kom med på vandringsfärd
i vårens glada tid!
Var dag är som en gyllne skål,
till brädden fylld med vin.
Så drick, min vän, drick sol och doft,
ty dagen den är din ❤️
My beautiful surroundings in green. This pictures are from my back yard . The Israelis call it winter- and I guess it’s is because of the colder temperatures and rain we’ve received but for me it feels like spring. Sitting on my own little rock surrounded by the Judean Hills I’m given a peaceful opportunity to reflect on the fact that I’m leaving soon. A month. I’ve got less then a month left. Anxiety is making itself known unto me and I’m trying to embrace it rather then avoid it. Facing changes and fear of the unknown is a part of life and I rather not have this feelings now- but change is just change and I can take control over how I will deal with it. How wonderful it is to be able to have control and not let it ruin my last weeks here. How wonderful it is to fill my soul with beauty my mind with Gods greatness, and my heart with love. Today I’m here- today the sun is shining over me- and today I replace anxiety with peace and today I’m taking charge of the changes that awaits me. On thing we know for sure about this life is that it will involve change, and sometimes we try to control the future, but instead we realize that all we can do is trust that whatever happens, we can adapt and make the best of it. One day at a time, and today I’m here- in Israel enjoying the new day that has been given to me. Sending you all so much
Today’s Shabbat Shalom and loves from Israel is sent to you from the Jerusalem branch Swedish speaking RM’s
”Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people. His sons Isaac and His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah”
Forth time in Israel- first time on Temple Mount
”Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?
Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation”
Joel 1: 2-3
Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and I earlier this week I visited a small museum to commemorate the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Soon all the survivors of this genocide will no longer be with us but their stories must forever be told. Let us always remember
Everything between heaven and earth has happened during my almost 6 months here in the Holy Land. I will be continuing to share my experiences with you- but for now- Shabbat Shalom, Sweden I’ll see you on the 19 of Feb- so much love from Jerusalem! ❤️
