There is much unpacking (well, it’s really unloading as we don’t pack everything in bags now that we’re traveling in the bus) and settling down that is happening now that we’re home. Sarah has the most, because she does the trip “aftermath” for the ministry.
We wereÂ excited to be back home after being gone for six weeks. There are many aspects about house living that one finds they forget, and then appreciate when they are back home. It isÂ amazing not bumping into each other all the time – or waiting for the hallway to clear before walking back to get something! We don’t have to watch our water usage like we did on the bus. It feels strange to go to the cupboard and get out a real plate since we have used paper products for the whole trip. We have to lose the habit of opening a drawer a short distance and then pushing down on the baby latch since we have become accustomed to that with the bus drawers. Even drinking from a normal cup seems unusual since we have been drinking bottles of water for so long.
â€œ…O Lord GOD…let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.â€ (2 Samuel 7:29)
