So tomorrow, when we leave Nashville for Arkansas, we will also be leaving Nashville for St. Louis. We will stay in Arkansas with my sister and her family, including brand new baby Gavin, and then drive to St. Louis from there. We will move in with George's mom instead of my mom and be homeless and unemployed in St. Louis instead of Nashville. But, we hope to find more opportunities to serve, more people to love, and more hope for our future there. If nothing else, at least we will be back in our old church community and (maybe?) school community where there will be people to think about besides ourselves. I think the worst of this all has been how selfish I have been almost without being able to help it. There is no one else in my day to day life, no one else with whom to regularly interact and of whom to bear the burdens. So, quite frankly, I am disgusted with myself, with my attitudes, with the way I have handled this situation, not outwardly so much as inwardly. But I have done my fair share of outwardly thrashing about too. Just ask the people who got that email!
Well, we still surely would appreciate your prayers. I guess everyone has their yuck in life, and our current yuck just happens to be four months without a job, and two without a home. Well, I am sort of rounding up to the nearest month on those, but it's not like it won't be that in just a couple of weeks. I mean, we know that for sure, the situation will not resolve itself completely for some time. But, we'll let you know when it does.
