Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

Photo Fridays: Garden Sanctuary

Happy Friday! Today’s photo is from my very favoritest place in Jerusalem, the Garden of Gethsemane. The garden is a place of natural beauty and peace in the midst of a busy city and some of the original olive trees from when the orchard was first planted (3000 years ago) are still standing. Consider this a teaser – next week I’ll be posting about the Mount of Olives and my time in the Garden of Gethsemane.

      Jerusalem can be so busy and full of people but everytime I’ve been in that garden it’s been so serene. 🙂

      I know what you mean. It’s so beautiful and so saturated with history that it boggled my poor little brain just trying to keep up.
