• Have you ever wondered about some of the name in the Bible in terms of their origins and their meanings?

    I particularly like the name Hannah whose name means grace. Do you not think it sounds like that also? Soft, graceful and elegant? 

    The way it appears in the Bible backs this up also with her being the mother of Samuel  who initially was unable to have children, she prayed to God and he blessed her with Samuel.

    Just lovely.

  • Have you ever thought about what the bible is? Yes of course, some believe it is God's word but to others it is just a collection of short stories. However, how many books will have poems written about them? Try searching for bible poems and you will come across pages which include something like:

    The Anvil of God's Word Last eve I paused beside the blacksmith's door,
       And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
    Then looking in, I saw upon the floor,
       Old hammers worn with beating years of time.

    "How many anvils have you had," said I,
       "To wear and batter all these hammers so?"
    "Just one," said he, and then with twinkling eye,
       "The anvil wears the hammers out, you know."

    "And so," I thought, "The Anvil of God's Word
       For ages skeptic blows have beat upon,
    Yet, though the noise of falling blows was heard,
       The Anvil is unharmed, the hammers gone."
                            —John Clifford, D.D.

  • Usually, the travelling is a most fun, loving and exciting experience for everyone. The best part of tourism is to decide to choose a particular place which you are willing to have a visit to. In this article, I would like to share the best travelling and visiting experience of Israel and make readers understand the entire things about that place very well. There is numerous great wealth to be found in this country for those who decide to travel to Israel.

    Let’s start from important facts and thoughts of this country.  Whenever I meet people who never visited Israel, they are always willing to visit Israel, but feel somewhat fear about their personal safety. Well, there is no more fear about that place. On the other hand, Israel is one of the most sacred country and spiritual centers in the world. It is the world’s third largest religious country, but still highly suffers from a poor image in the world. Israel is such a small and colourful country which can be a good place to visit and even plan to arrange a trip during the holidays. Within a single week, you can probably see a lot of most vivid and diversified views of nature.

    Now, I would like to mention about the geography and climate of Israel. Although, the desert covers the large parts of Israel and also contains colder parts such as the Golan Heights with lakes, the Galilee, rivers and one skiing resort named as the Hermon Mountain. Many people think that the chance of getting killed by a bombing attack is higher in Israel. But in the last two years there has been a significant decrease in the number of terrorist attacks in that place. Even I have spent a few days in that place, there was a safe feeling on the streets and it is real too.

    Some of the most exciting things that I have visited and wondered in Israel are,   


    Israel is enclosed in by sea. The Red Sea is most popular for beaches which has stunning cliffs as well as suited for snorkeling and diving.

    More security

    The security barrier is worth seeing in Israel. For travelers, the watchtowers and fortified gateways can be good sightseeing places of Israel’s military control over the territory.

    Attraction of desert

    The southern part of Israel is filled with vast desert, it will likes by the Eco travelers.    

    Fantastic walks in the countryside

    Israel has a long tradition of nature tourism, which holds a lot of national parks, stunning Jesus Trail, wildlife reserves and forest walks.

    When you are visiting Israel, you won’t miss to visit the two distinct places such as biblical Palestine and the eastern parts of Jerusalem, including the kidney shaped piece of the west bank that surrounds Jerusalem.

    I hope, after reading this article with my own experience you are convinced that traveling to Israel is a good option for you during vacation. If you feel more excitement, you just visit Israel and see yourself in reality what this country has to offer!
