Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele

We are praying for all the victims of the explosions at the Boston Marathon. I can’t imagine what all these families are going through right now. Hats off to the first responders and the people of Boston who were so ready to help. May God comfort the suffering.

I’m winding down on my Milan posts and today I’ll share shots of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele which is named after the first King of the Kingdom of Italy and the oldest mall in Italy.

I didn’t go for the twirl on the Bull but I enjoyed watching others twirl on their heels.

I guess I’m not a design shopper as I didn’t feel tempted to go into any of the shops.

No shopping in the oldest galleria but I really enjoyed all the old Architecture and details in the Galleria.

The country we will be visiting with our oldest and his lovely lady is England. Josh and Laura have never been there and it will be fun exploring some old sights with them and discovering some new ones while we celebrate Dear turning 60. 2013 is fast becoming a major travel year for us between Dear’s conferences, family events, and the Mennonite Girls book launches. Praying already for God to go before us.

Psalm 121:8

The Message (MSG)

7-8 God guards you from every evil,
he guards your very life.
He guards you when you leave and when you return,
he guards you now, he guards you always.

She Qualified for the Boston Marathon!

And she’s visiting me and I’m trying to keep up with her. My niece Debbee will be here till Wednesday. You probably won’t be hearing much from me till later in the week.

We are all so happy that Debbee gets to run in the Boston Marathon next April. It sure would be fun to go and cheer her on.

Debbee is gluten intolerant and was so excited when we found this gluten free bakery in Seattle. She has treats stored up in the refrigerator for her time here. She said it was like Christmas looking at all the gluten free baked goods in this shop!

We’re off to Downtown Seattle for Happy Hour at Boka’s on our way to the Mariners Baseball game. Blessings!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
