Going up!

.
We Tiberias excavation volunteers were already hard at work at 6:13 a.m. last week when suddenly everyone started running for their cameras.
I, of course, thought "For SkyWatch Friday!"
A golden sunrise over the Sea of Galilee doesn't happen every day.
.
Now I am back home in Jerusalem, the scene of another rising into the sky some 2,000 years ago, according to Christian belief. A Son-rise.
Your Jewish friend wishes happy Ascension Day to all you Christians who celebrate today.

Thank you Dina! How attentive to think of this day! Your sunrise is very inspiring and a great start of the day.
My daughter is here with the family and we are happily enjoying our being together.
I should like to do me a favour, Dina. Next week I shall be away with the family, but I have an entry scheduled for ABC Wednesday. Could you please enter my name in the list of ABC.
It's: Reader Wil R for Røros

I shall be very grateful, thank you.

Reminds me of California (except the flags would be multicolored and surrounding a used car lot)

A nice religious pun, I'm sorry this isn't a holiday here anymore.

Magnificent sky picture. I am visiting with you via Patsy @ the Smith's, Bennie and Patsy.

Sara said...

You certainly caught a gorgeous sunrise there! I love the reflection on the water.

Ascension Day...I was just reading the selections for that in the Book of Common Prayer this morning, now that I know a bit more about the church calendar and was actually aware what day it is. It isn't much celebrated or talked about I think, these days. Thank you for the good wishes.

Great picture and pun!

I missed the Sonrise, but at least I have a hope to see the Sonset! (When Christ comes down the same way He went up - sets His foot in the same place!)

Hope you are enjoying your dig! - It's great that you share so much with us. Thanks!

What a beautiful sunrise. Good start of the day.

Hilda said...

Now that was a fascinating comment. Golden sunrises are not common over the Sea of Galilee? Why?

Thank you for the greeting, Dina. But "Gaaah!" at the pun. ;)
