A Father’s Day Bookmark

I am near the Old City in Jerusalem, Israel after visiting Tel Aviv, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Tiberias, Nazareth, and Bethlehem. As I read the history and learn more about Israel’s rich history and culture, I am struck at the diversity I see. The Carmelite Catholic nuns in El-Muhraqa, Mount Carmel (the place where Elijah is said to have challenged the prophets of Baal to demonstrate who is the true God) believe that when Muslims, Jews, and Christians are living in peace the Messiah will come again. I do not know but my tour guide told a joke: everyone wants peace in Jerusalem because everyone want a piece of Jerusalem. I can’t afford any land in Israel, but what I can afford is a bookmark. Even on a flight or a boat ride or a train ride or a bus ride, I carry my son with me as a bookmark. Have you considered photo bookmarks of those you love to make travel fun, especially when you have to travel without your family? It makes for a great father’s day gift. Love you son and I hope you’re reading this blog. DAD
