In 2009, I had the great privilege of going to the Holy Land for the first time. In that first trip, I was able to take my pilgrimage group to Masada, taking a cable car and doing a lot of walking under direct sunlight. From there, one could see the panorama of the Dead Sea, and the area of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The Dead Sea is the lowest body of water in the planet, with the highest concentration of salt. It was quite an experience to go float on the water of the Dead Sea. The reason why it is so salty, and so no sea creatures could survive in it, is because there is no outlet for the water. It receives water from the River Jordan, but it does not give off water to an outflowing stream. That’s quite an idea, an insight into life. When we just receive and not give, we become unlivable and pretty dead. 🙂

This is my sentry to Sue’s A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Water.  Thanks!
