Closing down home in a far place is not without its stresses. How to decide what to keep from our far away home of 13 years. Yes, we moved from one city to another in that far away land but we did not have to decide what to keep or ship for a final move. Not only were we closing down a home, we were closing down a work that was dear to our hearts. We took care to let the love gals pick what they wanted to keep. They even made selections from the china cabinet! And the rock chosing, well, Dear Dad laughed. Love Princess insited so all were packed.
We couldn’t bear to part with the Japanese style tall tea cups we used for coffee many weeks for our Sunday fellowship group, studies and meals. I must admit it gave me and our family great pleasure to not have to put them up. They sat ready on a Thai tray for any guest. They are in a box ready for shipping.
As our oak table with leaves went out the door so did a satisfying lifestyle of an open table for
food, fellowship, folks from far and near, family and dear friends.
But you know what? Just this morning Love Princess told me how much she liked having folks over for dinner. We had some new friends over last night for lots of spaghetti and cherry cobbler. Guess our lifestyle hasn’t changed so much after all, just the location. And I am smiling over His faithfulness to us!
It was the 5F’s!
Yeah! We are making new memories.
