They're here, they're here!

It's just stuff, really...but it's our stuff and has memory-labels stuck all over it. Yesterday our three worlds finally came together as our goods from South Africa (in storage for four years) and St Helena (in transit for four months) joined with the household stuff we have acquired so far in NZ. Now we are longer aliens using brand new or borrowed stuff, we can slip comfortably into our old shoes which have walked many a road with us. We are so very thankful to God who we know had a hand in the safe shipping and arrival of our 68 boxes. I found myself shedding silly tears over a two-year-old mug! The boys were just as excited, exclaiming over their toys, and "hey, remember this"-ing each other. It's hard work getting unpacked, like moving into a house for the first time, but oh such joyful labour.

Ah...finally! I would imagine that many boxes will take a while to unpack but that you will feel truly settled when it is all said and done now that nothing is left in limbo.
