I've just finished packing everything I own in about 10 boxes and all my clothes are in my suitcase for the next month. I'm sitting in a very empty apartment. I'm actually in Candace's old room with nothing but my laptop. I'm actually about to unplug the internet and put the modem in a box to deliver back to Time Warner in the morning. Moving day is tomorrow. I'll move my stuff to "storage" aka Hope and Elias' garage. They have graciously offered to store my stuff for the next month as I wait patiently for the Lord to provide a place for my roommate and I to live this Fall. I'll be staying with friends as I wait for my roommate to return home from the DR at the end of August. Tomorrow marks a day where everything that is "mine" will be stored away, and I'll literally be living out of two suitcases. I kind of feel like I'm going on vacation but I'm not. This next month is going to be a month full of changes, and my heart is surprisingly at utter peace. While others are busy freaking out for me, I have a sense of peace that everything I'm about to experience in this month of being in limbo will just make me cling more to the Lord to provide for me. I should live out each day of my life this way. I pray that He would teach me that nothing I have here is really mine, and in a moment it can all be taken away from me. I'm thankful that the only true constant in my life each day is Jesus. I know that He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. With that truth I am confident that He's got my life in his hands for the next month.... and for eternity.

Over and Out forever from Apartment 1432.

Here's to a new stage of life, a wonderful new roommate, a new place to live (wherever that might be), a new community, but most all a new season of life with my precious Jesus. Amen.

To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.

ecclesiastes 3:1-8
