Filed under: Move to SC
This is what Elijah now calls our home at 1508-B James Avenue, Charleston AFB, SC 29404. For a while he called hotels and billeting “our new house” so I’m relieved to establish a little more reality in his and Merry’s life with a new home of our own.
I feel disjointed, out of place, like I don’t fit . . . but I guess that’s how it goes. Even though it is beautiful here, it still is earth. I’m trying to just let that feeling sit with me, instead of fighting it – perhaps I should ALWAYS feel a little disjointed here on earth – since I don’t really belong to it. However, it has hit me harder with this move than any. Today we finally got a stove, washer and dishwasher that work. . . we’ve been kind of camping out because those items weren’t working.
God has been so very good to us – when we decided to take on-base housing (the day before our goods arrived) I called my sister Roseann who lives 3 hours away and she drove down that very evening to be here when the movers dropped our stuff off the next morning. She has a 2-month-old, and her husband is deployed. PRAISE GOD for SISTERS!! She has been a lifesaver and a huge help. Everyone needs a Roseann (to borrow a Dr. Seuss line).
I will write more when we get internet (tomorrow hopefully) and talk with some of you when we get our phone (which should be on the 3rd or 4th of October)
