We travelled to the desert to experience its terrain, and found that we had been.Lured by the one who calls His beloved into the wilderness… that He may speak to her.

A Box of Honeyed Delights

In the meantime here`s a little story to wet your whistle!…..just before we set off on our latest adventure to Israel, we received a box of ‘Honeyed Delghts’ from our bee keeping friends the `Dekker family` in the Netherlands. So unexpected – yet so timely

Dutch honey may seem like a bit of an odd gift to take to the land of milk and honey, nevertheless this golden gift was graciously given, and we were really delighted to be its couriers, carrying it all the way from the UK to the Hebrew festival of Rosh HaShanna better known as the `Jewish New Year`. At this particular feast the traditional greeting is to dip slices of crunchy apple into liquid honey – then offer it to your neighbour wishing them “Shana Tova u’metukah” (שָׁנָה טוֹבָה וּמְתוּקָה) meaning “have a good and sweet year.”

Whilst honey is more commonly known as an edible food it also contains medicinal properties – which have been used for centuries to heal burns and wounds. The symbolism and timeliness of this sweet gift is not hidden, me thinks, especially in this war torn region, as well as the rest of our embittered world. No doubt we will be hearing more about this natural product used in a super/natural way in the final edit! [For now here`s a little re-working of psalm 133]

Oh, how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell in unity …it’s like honey poured down on the head on the feet of those who hear His heart beat!
