CHRISTMAS IN PARIS?
Christmas in Paris sounds romantic, doesn’t it? For two newlyweds separated by the military it was exactly that: A chance for a romantic honeymoon. The only issue would be my passport. I only had three weeks to meet by husband, but usually passports took six weeks. If I don’t have that passport, I can’t go, I prayed. Please, Lord. Make this happen. Yeah, I know. People all over the world were praying to God for help in a time of war, or starvation, or government oppression and here I was praying to go to Paris at Christmas. Sigh. But we were married back in July, and didn’t have much money, so we really hadn’t had much of a honeymoon. Scott had left one week after the wedding to board the aircraft carrier. My boss at work was very understanding and gave me the time off even though I was a rather new employee. My coworkers were so supportive and gave me books on how to speak French. Of course my family was thrilled for us. But I needed that passport. Every day after work I checked the mailbox of my apartment…every day for two weeks. Nothing. No passport, no Paris… Learn More About Ruth http://thedragonforest.homestead.com/HomePage.html
