April 2024 Events

 Philippians 4:7

... and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, 
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

From January through April, Israelis take to the deserts, the coasts and the Mediterranean hills to wonder at the remarkable bloom of the flowers of spring.
The red crown anemone (Anemone coronaria, or calanit in Hebrew) — Israel’s national flower — carpets fields along the Gaza border area at this time of year, usually drawing large crowds to the “Darom Adom” (“Red South”) festival. In Israel, several red flowers bloom one after the other, so that each gets the pick of the beetles without too much competition.
Five wildflowers share a distinctive red bowl shape with a black center. The crown anemone appears first, followed by the small pheasant’s eye and tulips. The turban buttercup and the poppy flower last.

Breathtaking beautiful blooms in the land of Israel!  
In the wind they appear to be dancing.  ~ Isaiah 40:8
Amazing Buttercup fields Hula Valley 2024 שדה נוריות מדהים בעמק החולה

Be Watchful for the Day - Luke 21:35
34But watch yourselves, or your hearts will be weighed down by dissipation, drunkenness, and the worries of life—and that day will spring upon you suddenly like a snare
35For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of all the earth. 
36So keep watch at all times, and pray that you may have the strength to escape all that is about to happen and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Psalm 124:7

Giant lake suddenly returns 130 years after vanishing
Tulare Lake, located in California’s San Joaquin Valley, was once one of the largest bodies of freshwater in the whole of the US.
But, some 130 years ago it disappeared – thanks largely to the greed of colonialists, who drained its waters to create arable farmland.
And yet, last year, the once-cherished lake suddenly reemerged, bringing with it both positive and painful effects.

How the Solar Eclipse works on a FLAT EARTH

April 8 - Solar Eclipse across America (7 years after the last one to cross America)
The third 'Great American Eclipse' will make headlines all over the Earth. 
On October 14, 2023, an annual solar eclipse will cross the US from Oregon to Texas. Snyder says that if you overlay the path of that annual solar eclipse on the top paths of the Great American Eclipse of 2017 and the one in 2024, you will see that these three eclipses actually combine to create a giant "Aleph" across America."

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. (WAVY) — NASA will launch 3 rockets into the total solar eclipse on April 8
It plans to launch three Black Brant IX sounding rockets from its Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s Eastern Shore during Monday’s total solar eclipse to study how Earth’s upper atmosphere is affected when sunlight dims for a moment over part of the planet.
Those rockets will launch at three different times — 45 minutes before the total solar eclipse, during it, and then 45 minutes after the peak local eclipse, and they are expected to reach a maximum altitude of 260 miles. The launch window opens at 2:40 p.m. EDT, with targeted launch times for the three rockets being 2:40 p.m., 3:20 p.m. and 4:05 p.m., but those times are subject to change.

April 15, 2019 - Five years after a devastating fire, the restoration of Notre-Dame cathedral is nearing completion as the world's eyes turn to Paris for the Olympic Games. "Only once in a century does one host Olympic and Paralympic Games, only once in a millennium does one rebuild a cathedral," Macron said in his 2024 New Year speech.
Notre-Dame will be restored to its previous design, including the 96-metre (315-feet) spire designed by architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc in the mid-1800s.
Philippe Jost, 63, a trained engineer who spent much of his career in the defence ministry, took over the job after his predecessor, French Army General Jean-Louis Georgelin, died in a hiking accident in August 2023.

Apr 16 - Historic Copenhagen stock exchange in Denmark goes up in flames
Watch: Fire engulfed the historic dragon spire which then collapsed
The 17th Century Børsen is one of the city's oldest buildings at 400 years -  onlookers gasped as its iconic dragon spire tumbled into the street below.
The old stock exchange was being renovated and had been shrouded in scaffolding and protective plastic covering.
It currently houses the Danish chamber of commerce, which described the scenes on Tuesday morning as a terrible sight.
"This is our Notre-Dame," he said, comparing it with the fire that engulfed the roof and spire of the cathedral in the centre of Paris almost exactly five years ago. The Paris fire broke out under the eaves of Notre-Dame on 15 April 2019 when it was also shrouded in scaffolding as part of extensive renovations.
National Museum photographer Roberto Fortuna captured one of the dragons at the foot of the spire last Friday
