Nice reflections of the stained glass windows.

The first image is so simply yet so powerful and profound.

This was one of my first thoughts every new year, for at least thirty years. It was really close at times, but something always happened.
Let's hope again...

Lovely, peaceful reflection. Happy new year :)

Two significant images, Dina. The composition of the top image is first rate.

I wish you health and happiness and peace as we journey into twenty ten.

Indeed! We should all pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Bonne année!

Shalom, Salaam, Peace as the t-shirt I bought in Netanya says. Belated best wishes for the New year.

A good wish. The best wish.

Peace be unto all of us.

Oh yes, definitely! May there be peace and more understanding around the world.
Hauoli Makahiki Hou and Shalom, Dina!

Salaam to you and yours as well! Best wishes for the new year.

It's the prayer which has sent tingles through my body this morning. That psalm is such an ancient, so very beautiful and yet seemingly forever unfulfilled cry.

If only there were the will, the imagination and the freedom of spirit to fulfill it.

Lots of peaceful words but seldom do they work out or last for long. I wonder, sometimes, why that is.

Great reflections Dina. Subtle but very nice.

Peace for Jerusalem and the Holy Land and for the whole world is essential; it's mainly a matter of intelligence: with the progress reached, I think man HAS the intelligence to set up a peaceful world.

Dick said...

My best wishes to you and you dear ones, I hope peace is one of the things that will happen but I'm not very hopeful about it. Nevertheless we must keep hope.

PAX (PAX TV). Thats the name used for a television station over here.I always suspected it was a member of the Christian broadcasting systems. Leave it to the good ole US of A to colonize a word for profit...Interesting
