It was our 12th move in 11 years, and I was hoping that our first house purchase would be a lasting one. Now that we’re entering our 7th year, I’m still hoping.
We still have a lot of work to do. A thirty-year old house is in need of some serious renovations, and the plummeting US dollar when we bought the house meant that our investments would not cover the costs of hiring professionals.
There has never been a time when I’ve taken assistance from friends for granted, but neither have I stopped to commemorate the extraordinary loving kindness of so many sweet souls.
This is a rapid-fire assortment of 200 photos from our move-in December 2002 until December 2006.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:2-6
