I'll say this: I can't believe how many things we had here that were perfectly useable that we did not use. Now that the end is in sight, and we can see the walls and inside of closets plainly, I for one don't want a repeat of that kind of collecting in our new residence in Cuenca. Our life is not to be about "stuff". . . but of what the Lord wants us to be about, namely His Kingdom and the people he has created in His image. . . so we need to be free to respond to His call when he does so, including the breaking free from years, even decades worth of stored "stuff." It feels great already. . . and we hope to enjoy that kind of freedom on a permanent basis in the months ahead.
