Thats so funny....and if I found one of those clothes line contraptions curbside, I'd grab it! Like the ratty looking underpants, a striking resemblance to some of my own.

Thanks for the comment. It's always a pleasure to find you visiting my blog

If I immerse myself in that photo, I get dizzy! Though I'm sure Jesus didn't get dizzy when he was immersed in the Jordan.

Great scene; very touching, for me.

Without the note, I wonder how long it would have taken for those J's to click.

That is funny! Very poignant actually.

Thanks so much for your visits, Dina. Been a crazy week or so for me but I'll get back to being a better commenter soon, I hope.

A nice photo with a sence of humor. I really like it. It's so nice to se something different from what they show in the news!!

All right, Dina! Today is your day to post an odd manifestation of faith! I'd love to see more in the Russian orthodox facility. It is amazing the religious diversity is Jerusalem!

Only you Dina! Where did you find this one? It's great.

mais chère Dina si je porterais un tshirt d'une image du Christ je me sentirais comme rebelle.
Mais pourquoi? je me demande.
Et peut-être c'est parceque la société en général n'est pas religieuse alors si je porte une image du christ je me lutte contre la société.

--Juste une autre petite réflexion sur cette poste.
