Blue supermoon eclipse over Bethlehem, right after sunset, from our rooftop. I want to say something poetic, but the visuals is enough.
Sonnie and I explored Bethany yesterday – you know, the place mentioned in the Bible, where Jesus visited Martha and Mary.
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered. “You are worried and upset about many things. But few things are needed. Really, only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better. And it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41-42)
The Church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria is a church adjoining the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.
We’ve been in this country for five years, and I have not set my foot in it until today.
It’s just like when we lived in the San Francisco Bay Area. We didn’t go across the Golden Gate Bridge until a couple years after we moved there!
Yup, we don’t tend to appreciate seeing famous places that are practically right in our backyards, but want to visit far-away places we can’t afford! 🙂
