Labor Day in the Garden

Our first Labor Day in the Israel Prayer Garden was one of firsts and foundations.  At eleven in the morning, the first wedding in the garden was held on the Threshing Floor.  Jesus De La Cruz and his lovely wife, Michelle, renewed their vows in front of a small gathering of family and friends.  The weather, though a little windy, was beautiful.  After months of intense heat, we enjoyed a cool, clear morning in the garden while Jesus and Michelle affirmed, new and fresh, their covenant relationship.

At one o’clock in the afternoon, I met the representatives from Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the garden for the installation of the Zebulun gate.  Over the last few months, these wonderful, enthusiastic folk have prayed, consulted, and sought the Lord over His vision for the tribe of Zebulun.  Along the way, they collaborated with Kenny and Andrea Tapp, our resident compost experts.  Kenny caught the vision for the gate, then designed and built it.  The result, as you will see, is truly a work of art.  The gate reflects the characteristics of the tribe of Zebulun and establishes a foundation for the rest of that portion of the garden.

Enjoy the slide show!
