but it wasn’t to be, and we can see the Father’s hand in this move. Being closer to the friends that we have made here means more opportunity to share and learn together. The only down side as far as we can see is that the house is a bit smaller, but we’ll adjust. After all, this time on earth is only temporary, and it is important to remember not to get too comfortable and forget that our home is actually in ‘another country’. I love this war time analogy from Catherine Booth;
A barracks is meant to be a place where real soldiers were fed and equipped for war, not a place to settle down in or a comfortable snuggery in which to enjoy ourselves. I hope that if ever, they, our soldiers do settle down God will burn their barracks over their heads!
Father, help us to remember that our true home is with You.
