Yes, I know it’s only Friday. I had tried to “schedule” the post, and it kept wanting to post N-O-W, so I gave up. Impatient little thang. And besides, no one else but me is checking blogs on a Friday night. Though it’s awfully quiet at my house. Boys are at a baseball game. Meg is sleeping over with The Giggle Gang. Just me. By myself. Kinda like it. And there is a pan of brownies in the kitchen with my name on it. I’m thinking this could be a glorious evening.
What? Oh, yes. The post. Here it is : Lives of Doctor Wives – Moving
We were a little bit lucky and only had to move three times, but as I say in the post, each time was really hard. I wouldn’t do a thing differently, though. Everything always turned out better than I could have ever imagined.
So even if you are not married to one of those crazy doctor people, there are lots of nuggets o’wisdom in this post for anyone who has to relocate. It’s an excruciating process, but I’ve learned that God always goes before us to “prepare a table.” Did you know that in Psalm 23 (“the Lord is my Shepherd…”) the original language alludes to a loving shepherd going into the pasture before the sheep enter to make sure that there are no poisonous plants or dangerous predators? The Shepherd literally prepares the land for His sheep – just like God goes before us and prepares the land where we will live.
That’s all. My brownies are calling. Good night.
