"A nation prospers under a righteous and just King!"
A great remembrance.. except the part about the return trip of your wife and daughters. Having been one of the three I can say it was flat out scary!! We took a puddle-jumper to Jeddah and then a big 747 first class to Houston, thanks to the Saudi government. The scary part was when we arrived at the Jeddah airport which was rudimentary at best. Think the Peanuts comics strip with Lucy at her roughly-made psychiatry stand... that was about the extent of a flight check-in point. I was frantic to make sure they knew we were there, had our tickets and would be allowed to board. God in his mercy saw us through... it was a wonderful experience to live in Saudi Arabia for a month but getting home and driving my own car was a luxury.
That was such an interesting read. That’s the most I’ve read of Saudi Arabia. Thank you for sharing!
I really enjoy your newsletters with coffee in the morning. Thank you!
Amazing perspective. We Americans are so full of ourselves. We fail to see or try to understand, respect or learn from any other culture…the good and the bad. We were blessed to live close to Mexico and get to know their culture (all current cartel events aside). We need to learn from the world, if we don’t….that will be our undoing.
