A dove has made its nest in the tree outside my office and has been sitting on this nest on what seemed like forever to us who were watching. Tuesday a bad thunderstorm came through and it was so strong that not only did it knock our power out, but it blew most of the nest away. Wednesday morning we noticed two baby birds on the limb where just a small remnant of the nest remained. I guess that's the bird equivelant of one of those stories where a mother gives birth in a taxi cab!
Here is another scrappy page for the Israel album. Our pastor has a wonderful sense of humor and sometimes during his sermons, we have to wonder if we are in church or at a comedy club. When he laid down on a sacrificial altar just outside of Tiberias, I had to take the picture. He is a big man (not fat but big) which is how I came up with the title.
