Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you, Until we meet again! ~~ author unknown
Moving from one city to another can be taxing on the physical body as well as the emotional. I am so thankful that my hope and trust is in the Lord for I wouldn’t have known how to handle such a large move as this.
It’s been 21 years since I’ve moved. Back then, all I had were clothes and a few possessions. It took two large U-Haul trucks to move our possessions across the state of Texas. Abraham had donkeys and I couldn’t imagine how many donkeys and days it took him.
I’ve spent the last two months packing and then unpacking. We’re finally into a home with most aspects of it functioning (with a garage full of boxes that we’re not even sure what’s inside them—if that says anything). We have too much stuff!
While the stuff took a physical toll on us, the emotional toll tugged at me for those that I left. I’m so thankful for unlimited long distance, skype, email, facebook and texting. Though I can no longer physically see those I’ve bonded with over the past years, it is so much easier to keep in touch these days. With these technological advances, the distance has shortened. Twenty-one years ago, these techy gadgets were not available.
Thank God I can stay in touch with all of you! I’ll miss you my dear friends, but we will meet again. Stay in touch!
Now that things have settled a bit for me and a regular routine is starting to take shape, I should be back to my weekly postings. Thank you for all your prayers, comments, emails, and FB updates through this transition!
