This is the Valley of Jezreel – the photo is from the R’s recent trip to Israel.  I saw some lovely photos last weekend and asked K to send me this one.  It appealed to me in that it’s such a beautiful scene and since traveling is difficult for me right now it is unlikely I will be going to visit P and his family and seeing Israel for myself in the near future.  It also makes me think of one of my favorite books, The Valley of Vision – it’s a collection of Puritan prayers and devotions.  M&S sent a copy to me after spending a happy weekend with me in OR in June 2010.  I’ve given away several copies of it since.  Here’s an excerpt:
