Water, there is something about ‘water’ that soothes the soul and brings a smile to your face. It doesn’t matter if it is a pond, a lake, a river, a beach, a lagoon or the ocean; each is special. However, some are more visually appealing, spectacular and awe inspiring than others. So come on, let’s wander the world, one wondrous water body at a time.
YESHUA felt distinctly the difference between this wilderness and the world in which he was at home — the Galilean villages and richness — crowds, people always around — activity continually. Here there was nothing. No life, simply contemplation. No activity, rather inactivity.

To this expanse of sameness, nothingness, absence of all that makes and gives life. What is this place that it does so?
I went from Tel Aviv to the Southernmost point of Israel which is Eliat. After a long journey through the harsh heat of the desert, I set my foot on the highest point in Eliat – the connection of Israel, Egypt, and Jordan.

These and Kaolin clay can also remove oil from your skin. If you have extremely oily skin, it is recommended to try the aforementioned clays.
Then Nehemiah came on the scene. Here was serving initially as a sort of governor. He conducted a night reconnaissance of the walls, assessed the situation of hostiles that did not want to see the walls of jerusalem rebuilt, and then devised a plan to rebuild the wall all at once, each household building the part nearest them while also keeping watch for any hostile incursion.
Aqaba is the southern jewel of Jordan. South of the town is most of the fun. The beaches are modest, but the Gulf has much hidden fun. Definitely do not miss on daring to scuba dive. Its numerous reefs provide refuge to incredible marine life. Be stunned and come back for more.
I managed to calm down and spend the rest of my time resting. By the time I returned home, I was in a place of quiet confidence and I wrote to the company I had been so angry with, and simply told them that I was an unhappy customer and to change that they would need to give me a refund of half the money I had paid them.
