One thought on “And the Sea is Never Full – Part 2 – SCARS

  1. I can’t image how oppressive life was and is for Israel’s when it seems they face off against the whole world. Maybe it is a little like the oppression we believers in America have living with so much immorality, hatred and unkindness we know have. It is not just in our government but everywhere we turn. Praying for Israel daily. I did enjoy this reading, thank you Keren.
