I must say...
Again, that God is so faithful. He provided the sweetest friends (namely Debra & Kelly) to devote an entire day to packing all of our things. You can't imagine how much peace and relief I felt after all of that help. (Packing and unpacking are at the top of my list of "Things I Don't Like Doing"). So, our house has been a maze of boxes for the past week (we move tomorrow), we've been confined to our bedroom, eating random leftovers (like turkey steaks and jello. and cutting those turkey steaks with a plastic (barely serrated) knife), drinking water out coffee cups
---and you know what---this has been one of the best weeks of our marriage. We are together. And I've decided that I'll "live in a tent" with Stephen just as long we're together, loving each other. And I thank God that He does things in such an upside down way. In the most unlikely of circumstances (ie; living in a cardboard wonderland, moving in with the parents), my heart safely trusts Him with the outcome of this whole thing...and that in and of itself is a sign and wonder.
