Moving to nowhere is much more difficult than moving somewhere. There are so many decisions to make regarding possessions, paperwork, etc. that your mind starts to shut down and be unable to process even the most simple tasks. The only way our family has gotten through the past few days is with the help of our church family and their love and support. I have been pondering the outpouring of love we received. It can only be explained as a Biblical phenomenon. Sadly, I can say that I have rarely witnessed scenes such as the one at our apartment Tuesday evening. Over thirty people showed up to help us move, and when they had packed our truck they proceeded to spend time packing our neighbors' truck, too. Things like that should be happening all the time! It also makes me determined to actively seek opportunities to minister to others in a similar fashion.

So we're off on a grand adventure. More posts coming....

Alice,
I'm looking forward to hearing thoughts from a "biblically minded woman's perspective." Thank you for allowing us to be the church in your life. We look forward to years and years of participation in the gospel with you!

"They'll know we are Christians by our love", the song goes...yet I've also noted how few acts of love seem to be around. Thought maybe it was just me, but then, Christians are also supposed to love the unloveable...

From a fellow woman blogger...not sure I have a brain, though.

Alan--thanks! I'll try to sound intelligent most of the time.

Isabel--I'm looking forward to more dialogue with you--the fact that you read my blog shows you do, indeed, have a brain. :)
