We have a home!


We have done the almost impossible:
We have moved and unpacked our entire household in 4 days.
It is such a great thing to have space. The children are like inmates who have been set free; they have been running around inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs...
It has been a long two years living in teeny tiny spaces. A fenced yard is such an indescribable blessing. We all have space to be together and to get away from each other. The 4 kids and I actually happily cooked dinner together tonight--there was enough space for all of us!
The luxery of having an office that is just an office...sigh.
We are discovering things that we haven't seen because they have been in storage for two years. It is so much fun.
It seems to be all coming together. We can see that there is indeed a reason for all that we have given up. How can you measure trifles like home ownership against the beauty of the people that God puts in your path? We are truly blessed and now we have a place that is big enough to comfortably spend time with said blessings!
