Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

Bethlehem

Last night, we took a trip to Bethlehem… we stepped back in time and wandered the streets searching for a special child we had heard was in the city. here are a few of the sites we found while we were there… (all pictures can be seen larger with a simple click)

Lil Angel meats George the camel…

Shalom! This wise man shared a little of his gold with us…

Little beggars were everywhere… This one saw my camera and couldn’t contain her joy…

misc 103

Try some of my spices…

misc 118

Lil Angel is always willing to lend a hand… Here she is grinding grain into flour

And then chopping out a bowl

We didn’t have enough sheckels to buy one of these chickens, but they sure looked tasty…

misc 130

The basket makers tried there best to ignore the crowds and continue with their work…

misc 136

And again, Lil Angel lends a hand making fine pottery…

misc 140

And making rope

Finally, the reason for our trip to Bethlehem… We found the child laying in the manger. Lil Angel decided to give her jeweled ring that a wise man had given her to the child…

We had a great time on our journey. lil Angel wanted to go thru again as soon as we walked out the door. I love her fascination with God- I want that… I want to look at it all with such a fascination- with such a devotion- I learned a lot just from watching her. Definately worth the trip- I can’t wait to do it again….

  1. You all must have been so blessed to go through that experience, and your lil Angel will have had a real sense of experiencing the environment Jesus lived in.

    Your daughter IS an Lil Angel
    ( btw sorry you witnessed my outburst but I have been getting pecked at by some for so long today I just blew. I totally deleted my BE account, I don’t need to get worked up about stupid things like that)
