A Love Letter to My Brother And My Sister

A Love Letter to My Brother And My Sister

I have a brother. He’s eighteen months older than me. Though when we’re together, we both act like teenage boys. (Sibling Revelry.) He’s married to my sister. Okay, so she’s not really my sister.

On the (early) morning of Day 4, we headed over to the Haas Promenade. A piece of land that overlooks Old Jerusalem. Where God first showed Jerusalem to Abraham. Not too shabby.Our group was dressed in their Sunday best as we got off of the bus and made our way over to the area that...
