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)
