Note To My Israel Traveling Self

Shabbat Shalom

I am reflecting back on my Newark airport scene. Note to future self: as a women do NOT say, “God Bless You” to a by standing sneezing Orthodox Jewish man. Not cool!
Michelle, my traveling partner in crime had to keep her giggle in a box as she watched him shoot me a ‘scowlish’ look of horror. I was just trying to be polite and help him through his oncoming sneeze!
I wondered what would have caused such a popsicle ice cold stare at my innocent gesture of verbal kindness.

I admired his brand new black Tom’s shoes. They coordinated nicely with his jet black suit, starched white shirt topped off with his round circular hat.
He was a by far a sharp dressed young man of conviction.
It reminded me diversity is to be respected and not lightly sneezed upon.

Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

Light On,
Kelley Allison
John1:4-5

  1. Oh, Kelley! You just keep on being YOU. Sensitive to others feelings and beliefs, but YOU (which reflects Him). I think Jesus was having a good laugh over this interaction! Love you! Deb(bie)
