While I Was Waiting...

While I was waiting at Tzomet (Junction) Yarkon, I took this picture.



It was pretty early on a winter's morning.  I was waiting for a bus or ride to get to Ariel, or miraculously even closer to home.  Finally a bus came, and I got the grand tour of the city of Ariel.  Finally we arrived at the last stop, the university.  I was sure that I'd be stuck there for a while, but miraculously the #148 Shiloh bus came within a minute, as if it had been waiting for me.  Of course it took ages, going all the way to Tzomet Tapuach (Apple Junction) and then into Eli and Shvut Rachel before it got to Shiloh.  But G-d was good to me.  As soon as I got out of the bus a neighbor offered me a ride to my house, so I was able to drop off my bag before going back down to Tel Shiloh for Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers.

הודו לה' כי טוב כי לעולם חסדו
Hodu l'Hashem ki tov, ki li'olam chasdo
O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.

Ah, I miss Israel. Thanks for the picture - palm trees always make me smile! Glad your transportation situation worked out so nicely!

They are photogentic, palm trees, that is.
