John and Doves,Thanks Gina for the link to the encouraging article about the whale off the coast of Israel in May this year.I noticed some other interesting figures in the story -1. The ENTRANCE to the Mediterranean at Gibraltar is 8 miles wide. (8 = Resurrection or new beginning)2. The length of the Mediterranean is 3,700 kilometres. (37 = Word of God)3. The date it was sighted was Saturday (Jewish Sabbath) the 8th of May, the 5th (Grace) month.Oddly enough, from May 8th to Sept 11th is exactly 18 weeks!Interesting indeed!Blessings,Phil.
