Wisdom Wednesday #4

This post is very, very special.  The L-rd willing, I am in Israel this week.  I wrote this post prior to leaving for my trip, since I am not sure if I will have access to the internet at that time.

The thing I'm most excited about is visiting and praying at the kotel - the only remaining wall of the Temple in Jerusalem.  When I visited there in 1996, I did not get to go to the wall because of a last-minute change of plans that day.  The tunnels under the Temple were newly opened and we had the opportunity to go through them.  Our tour guide made that choice, and I was terribly disappointed, although the tunnels were a wonderful experience, too. 

I had a friend who visited Israel in 1994, and she placed my name in the wall at that time.  I was very impressed with this, and it meant a great deal to me.  I had no interest in going to Israel at that time, but G-d had great plans for me related to Israel and Judaism. 

Every one of your names, my dear Gail-Friends, will be placed in the wall during my visit, L-rd willing. My prayer is that you will know and do His will in your lives.

I covet your prayers for us during this week.
