We have officially moved in and with that came a tad bit of discouragement with the realization of the things we really don't have and the awareness of things we brought too much of (like our clothes, at least too many of the wrong things to wear)....
But, on the other hand, we have our own place and it feels good to be figuring out what life can look like for the Guckenberger family. I have been in the word a lot and in the study it was talking about our circumstances around us are sometimes for us (which maybe that is a no brainer for you, but it is hitting me harder this week) and maybe living here will show me maybe more of what God created me to be, it might even unearth some things that are there that I might not even be aware of at all.... My hope and prayer is that with the loss of my conveniences I might find a different Corrie, a more selfless one I hope, and I can get encouraged and excited about that.
One last thought, with our move to our home, we currently do not have internet, but our hope is to get it in our home within the middle of next week. So, you might not hear from us for a few days, but please pray as my house still feels like a house and not a home. Please also pray for us to learn to live life without and know it is not only okay, but good because the truth is We REALLY do LOVE living here!!!
