Something happens to you when you're there. You hear God's heartbeat ... you feel His breath. You know beyond all other knowledge that you've been called home ... and have arrived.


I have shed homesick tears with the writing of each of these articles. I find myself longing for a people whom God called "His inheritance."  As I daily read my Bible, I am blessed with a deeper sense of the land, of the characters, of the desire God has always had for His children to draw close to Him -- to reach for His heart -- to stroke His face. 


And I pray, sincerely pray, that everyone who reads my words about Israel, will someway, somehow, some day make the trip to discover what I now know -- and will, like me, fall into the Bible, and more in love with God than they ever knew they could be.
