For those of you who knew (and didn’t know), my fiance, Rich, arrived in Israel safely after a delayed flight… I was an hour “early” and didn’t know if I’d read his itinerary wrong, missed the plane, or if it was the time change in Israel. Turned out his flight took off 45 minutes late and landed 1.15 hours late…. My godson, Matan, sent a Winnie the Pooh balloon for Rich to spot me. Rich didn’t know balloon to look for, but he somehow saw Pooh Bear and knew to come in that direction… he was VERY happy to see me and sit in a car instead of plane seats…

We got to my apt by around 7:30 pm or so and had a nice dinner. My neighbors visited (eager to meet him), and then off to my friends Layla and Jon, where he will be staying when we are not visiting each other, sight seeing, etc… Seems he had been conspiring with them and surprised me with a lovely red rose corsage, as he surprised me in Toronto… I was so glad I wore the same blue shirt I’d worn in Toronto… it was so special. I will wear the corsage to church tomorrow…

Thank you all for your prayers. I just wanted you to know he arrived safely and is being warmly welcomed by not just me, but many people who are excited to get to know him. God is SO good, I am overwhelmed by His amazing love for us… and so thankful for His bringing Rich into my life.

We will try to keep you posted on his time here. Israel has gone to summer time, so back to 7 hours diff between Israel and Michigan (for those who are wondering).

All for now. Blessings to you all!
