Holy Land 2023 (Penny)

(We made it! On the bus, heading to Galilee. A few travel day details below.)

A gift from Turkish Airlines

The Gift of Sleep

Usually I can’t turn my whirring mind off enough to sleep on long flights crossing oceans.

First, I found a new mantra from Psalm 4:8 “I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.”

Then beautiful Arzu took care of me. She says her name means desire in Turkish.

I fell asleep praying, “May God’s desire become my desire.”


*Another word Arzu taught me. It means Amen in Turkish.
