So we arrived in Israel for our daughter’s wedding.

It was amazing to me to see how the Holy Land has so developed from when I was here last over 25-years ago.

It is a thriving nation in every sense of the word.

Just as G-d has promised, the land and it’s people have blossomed under His blessings.

I am grateful to G-d for helping me to reach this wonderful and happy time.

Tonight, we had a wonderful dinner with the in-laws and there was a henna ceremony as well — for good luck (Mazel Tov)!

Little did I know, I thought this bowl of henna was chocolate fudge and part of dessert — good thing that I didn’t take a staining bite out of that.

How would that have looked in the wedding pictures? ;-)
