A New Home

The furniture, refrigerator, washer, dryer, and lots and lots of boxes have been moved to our new to us home.  There has been much to do and ponder this week.

* Organized labeling makes it easier to locate items.
* Treasures sometimes take time to find because they are hidden inside other items.
* Priorities needed to be established to choose what to unpack and set up first.
* Perseverance and persistence are the mottos for the day, week…
* It is worth finding the right place for the item and not just sticking it anywhere and having to find a place at another time.
* Sometimes you need to stop the unpacking and take care of other important tasks.
* It’s enjoyable and beneficial when others help with the move.
* Someone else’s expertise in decorating/room arrangement is a welcomed gift that can make a big difference.
* There is a process in learning which switch turns on which light and how some of the switches work, as well as how to load the dishwasher from the left instead of the right.
* Even when you’re not all moved in, the call of family takes precedence.
* It’s family that makes a house a home.

This has been a week of continuing to be overwhelmed with how much God has blessed us with our new home, even more than we could ever ask or imagine.  In the future, there will be another new home that God will provide that we will love and enjoy even more than this one.  We won’t need to pack or unpack boxes, be concerned about the décor or placement of furniture, or be responsible about learning how everything works.  Jesus already has it ready for when the time comes.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?

John 14:2
