#AtoZ, 2014: W is for Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

atoz [2014] - BANNER - 910

How handy. The letter W just fell into my lap with the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters.

Here are a few pictures I took on Mount Nebo, Jordan in December, 2012.

mmm

Silhouette view of the full monument on Mt. Nebo. Faces, figures, and letters embedded in the monument present a message from the ages. Moses and the Israelites arrived at Mt. Nebo in Jordan, not far from the Dead Sea, after wandering for 40 years in the desert on the Sinai Peninsula. (Deuteronomy 32: 49-52). Moses viewed the Promised Land from this mountaintop before he died… “and to this day no one knows where his grave is.” (Deut. 34:6) After Moses died at 120 years old, Joshua led the Israelites into the Promised Land. (Deut. 34:1-7)
