Jeremiah describes God embracing the nation of Israel like a father, and sheltering them from harm. It is the ideal of all humanity to feel this protective love and care. But when little Sara, age 2, showed up at a foster home in Israel having been found wandering the streets on her own, the signs of abuse on her small body showed that she had experienced more in her two years than many experience in a lifetime. The special family who was matched to care for Sara, and over 25 other neglected children over the years, sees their work with Israel's foster care organization, The Summit Institute, as their calling in life: "This is a way for us to put to use our ability to give." Share in the merit of Summit's work, providing a loving future for Israel's forgotten children.
Yesterday's photo by Hillel van-Leeuwen was taken in the resort city of Eilat on the Red Sea. Eilat is mentioned a number of times in the Bible, as one of the spots where the people of Israel stopped on the way out of Egypt. Today, visitors enjoy fun water sports such as scuba diving, swimming with dolphins and windsurfing!
Thank you for that gorgeous Song of Prayer for the IDF. I will save it and sing along daily for them! I love your special beautiful messages each day, they inspire me. I have prayed for Israel for many years... Thanks, and G-d Bless, Gay Ford
