BLESSED IN STRONG CITY



OUR 14TH ANNIVERSARY WAS AMAZINGLY SPENT IN PARIS WHEN RETURNING HOME FROM UGANDA AFTER OUR DEAR UGANDAN SON, SAM'S, WEDDING, IN SEPTEMBER, '99.

WE STAYED NEARBY THE DOWNTOWN AREA WITH A FRIEND OF DAVE'S WHO HE HAD MET AT WORK A YEAR EARLIER.  WE WERE BASICALLY THERE FOR FREE, AND TAKEN AROUND AND ABOUT BY THE FAMILY WHO THEN LIVED IN PARIS, HAVING SHIFTED THERE FROM THE STATES.  

 THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN FROM THE EIFFEL TOWER.  HAD NEVER BEEN TO PARIS BEFORE, WON'T BE AGAIN.  BUT IT FILLED MY HEART WITH JOY, BLESSING OVERWHELMING.

A beautiful photo for sure! I've seen pictures looking up at the tower but never from it. It is a breath tasking view! #SundayCommunity
