Two and a half of these months, we were out of our previous apartment in Evanston. Staying with friends, family, and even at an Airbnb. Now, we are in the house, and we are starting to get everything in order. Just in time for the recent work from home order, as requested by the session. We’re here! We did it.
The tiredness set in almost immediately. I make extra sharp, mental markers of these moments because they don’t happen often. It’s time to fill my cup up again. I wrote a devotional back in March about embracing an Ecclesiastes 2.0. I suppose I’m writing this devotional to myself as much as anyone else. The time of transient living is behind us. Now, it’s time to settle. It’s time to build ourselves up again.
The long and winding road has finally led my family to this home’s door. Throughout our journey, we relied on no less than 20 or so family members and friends. It took a lot of cooperation to make this happen. Whatever journey you are on, whatever struggles you are facing, I hope you will find the courage to carry on and grow in the process. I also hope you will reach out to others if you are in need of help. No one is alone in our church family.
