Three Trees and A Mountain

Near Málaga, Spain

We left Sevilla early in the morning to catch a bus for Málaga—a southern city by the Spanish Mediterranean coast. The bus arrived at a stop outside of the main city centre. As soon as we step out of the bus, I was totally taken by this view of the mountain. For a little someone like me from Ontario, Canada where small hill is the closest we could get for anything that's above sea level. Seeing a real mountain was totally inspiring!

"I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?"  — Psalm 121:1 NIV

Marching

Urumqi, Xinjiang China

Marching on the street is probably one of the most universal forms of displaying public opinion. It happens all the time in different parts of the world. This group of students that I ran into on the street of Urumqi certainly has a message or perhaps an opinion wanted to pass along.

With all the marching that has taken place both in ancient times and modern days, I think the one recorded in the Bible about the Israelites marching around a city is definitely phenomenal.

“By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.”   - Hebrews 11:30, NIV
