I don’t want to go

This was the phrase I said out loud in the empty women’s toilets in Manchester airport on Monday. I didn’t really care if they were really empty.  A flight to Las Vegas leaves at the same time, may be I could sneak on to that one.

In fact I had been secretly repeating this phrase for months over and over in my head.  The game I’ve been playing is that if I tell everyone I’m going to Israel for 4 weeks, then my pride will kick in and make me go. The truth is I’m a big chicken!  I have a good poker face … I should have gone to Las Vegas I would have been $10 up by now!

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.”

I hate it when other people are right! But it is so true. This year I made a new year’s resolution in January that I wanted to go on an adventure, experience a culture completely different from my own and find out what God is up to outside of my self imposed cocoon.

So with much fear I boarded the plane to Tel Aviv.  VIVA Israel!
