"Go and tell my servant David, 'Thus says the LORD: Would you build me a house to dwell in? I have not lived in a house since the day I brought up the people of Israel from Egypt to this day, but I have been moving about in a tent for my dwelling." 2 Sam 7
Ok if the God of hosts could live in a tent, and move all over, so can I! :)
This is what we condensed our lives down to this weekend. About two palates worth. It's going to sit at the harbor for a week to make sure there are no bombs! (seriously!) and then will make it slowly across the atlantic to South Africa. We should get our stuff by December 23rd, or late January, depending on what ship it goes on. Its weird condensing your life into boxes. Our apartment echos when we talk now! :) But the Lord is soooo good. We really feel upheld by prayer. And its a big relief. Packing is over!
