Head 'Em Up, Move 'Em Out

Today is Moving Day.

Kevin should be getting the truck this very moment and then the loading of all our possessions will begin. I really really hope that we won't have to do this again any time soon.

All of the "lasts" have been hitting me hard this week:

  • the last time I'll walk the dog on the golf course in the evening
  • the last time we'll see friends at our parish
  • the last time Kevin can safely drive past the shack of armed guards into work
  • the last time we'll sleep in our bed in our first home
  • the last time I'll take a shower in the bathroom we designed and remodeled (I love that bathroom!)

It is a bittersweet day. But I take comfort in this:

"For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare, not for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope." Jeremiah 29:11
