A Poem

Camping at Canal Ahava

An inbetween sort of place

On the way

Set down

Gather together

And let the dust settle

A place of rest

Where we prepare to build

For the best

To build on the foundation laid

With each at his post

Prepared to participate, his part.

Prepared to build when what was, has fallen away

We’re looking at the original foundation

On the path to the promise

We camp

The water passes, slowly flowing

To Ahava, a canal carrying life

Towards LOVE.

Ezra 8:21 “There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions”
