I never notice agapanthus before she blooms. This lack of awareness allows for yearly ambush.

Gideon fought with the Midianites on this plain. There the Philistines killed Saul, and David killed Goliath. This is where the Egyptians killed King Josiah.

We woke up at 6am and began out journey towards Palermo. We had to return our car to the rental company by 10am or I risk a penalty. As I drove west, Mount Etna appeared in my rear view mirror. It had been a cloudy few days on top of Etna. It’s a privilege to […]

This is not merely a personal claim; it is rooted in the Scriptures and supported by human experiences since days of […]
