Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Moving Day

Got home from camp on Saturday. It was a great week, and I have no words for what a gift it was, to spend time with all those good folks. A couple of them are moving away as well-- so Godspeed and good wishes also to some dear and godly friends: Brian, Tamisyn and the clan as they head to Mississippi, and to Jason as he starts a new adventure in West Virginia.

More hard goodbyes on Sunday, as we celebrated Jesus and each other at St. A's on Sunday, with a potluck after church-- and then St. Paul's surprised us with a small going away party Monday night.

Then yesterday finally arrived; and it took a whole lot longer than we had planned. The moving truck got stuck trying to back into our driveway, and it took a few hours to extricate it before the guys could start loading our stuff onto it.

But at last all was loaded. The house is now very empty, and the truck is very full, and we are on the road. With the late start, and some extra time spent at my sister's house, we only drove for a couple of hours before we collapsed.

And now, it's time to start again. Goodbye, Indiana - and Westward, ho!

I remember leaving Indiana. It's entirely survivable, especially since you are going where God has called you.

And, you get to come back and visit.
