Hello Everyone. I hope you all had a blessed Easter. I know we did. For the second year in a row we found ourselves moving, right at the beginning of April. Thankfully this move was only an across-town-move, but it was a move just the same. With my husband at work today, I found myself alone in a new house with stacks of boxes waiting to be unpacked. It could become an overwhelming, stressful task, if I let it. Instead, I chose to be thankful today for this beautiful new house that we’re living in. Yes, it’s a rental, but for once we’re the first people to live in it, how great is that? I’m also thankful for the chance to sort through all of our stuff and un-clutter a bit. We’re both packrats, so the un-cluttering is very needed. In the military I’m sure I’ll spend more hours than I can count unpacking boxes. Sometimes those days unpacking will be extremely lonely. But the truth remains that God follows us through each and every move. As David in Psalm 139 so beautiful puts it: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast” (vs. 7-10, NIV).
Aren’t you glad that God follows us wherever we may go in this life? What are you thankful for today?
