Here is almost free of boxes...
in the house anyway.
The patio is another story.
Here is the biggest home we've ever lived in...
with more closets to fill, more carpet to vaccuum, twice as many windows as our last home and more counters to clean.
But I'm not complaining.
Here is lots of phone calls...
church business, a refrigerator that doesn't quite work and we haven't really given the number out yet.
There's still a lot to wrap up - pictures that need homes, an empty space behind the dining room table that I'm stumped by, and lots and lots of organizing. And with a new home comes a new normal, a new daily order...something I've yet to discover.
All in all, we feel very settled - perhaps the quickest I've ever felt settled in a home.
Here, I have a sense like I've never had before that God has placed us in this home for a reason and a purpose, and I look forward to exploring it.
Here is wonderful.
Here is home.
