To One of the Rare Ones...

Dave, second from left, sitting with Bedouins and Tuareg of the Sahara, aka Blue Men, in their tent, in the Moroccan Sahara Desert, about 9 clicks from the Algerian border.

"Thou art my life--I the brook, thou the spring.
Because thine eyes are open, I can see;
Because thou art thyself, 'tis therefore I am me."

Blessings ~ 22 years of friendship and love, including 16 years of marriage ~

Dave looks like a very interesting fellow. I would love to have talked to him about this experience. Were you there? Did you trust these Bedouins?

Charlotte Wilson said...

Forgot to say that this is a lovely tribute to a husband that is sorely missed. I love, love, love the song "At Last". I had it played at my wedding reception.

Marsha, was and am blessed.

Kathy, thanks for visiting.

Karen, I tried.

Mildred, it was a hard day but God got me thru.

Karen, thank you.

Gail, he was and he did, thank you.

Lisa, thank you.

Sparky, I do too...every day!

LindaSue, bet they're having some good times, really good times.

Sara, thank you.

Val, thank you.

MK, at least 2 -grin-.

Lea, thank you.

Vicki, you blessed us with that week in Florida; we had such a sweet time.

Ginny, would if I could -grin-.

Charlsey, thank you for visiting and commenting.

Debbie, thank you and I tried to remember to deep breath all day.

Charlotte, I took the photo and yes, we did trust the Bedouins. It was a tourism trip and like I told one of the young men, "hurting tourists is bad for business." Braheim's mother was concerned because her son was spending the weekend with Americans. It was so funny! Perhaps I should blog about that, eh?

That's so cool about At Last at your wedding. Etta James sings it so greatly.


Ah sweet Sandra ... what a wonderful Dave you had.


Lisa said...

My goodness - what was he doing there? The Bedouin are an interesting people to me.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Glenda, he was a wonderful Dave!

Lisa, we were vacationing in Marrakesh and spent a few days camping in the Sahara Desert.
