Moving







Hello,

We are writing from our new home. I am sitting at my desk looking out the window at the Anglican church in our little village. What makes it special is the belltower was constructed in the 15th century and the church still retains some of its medieval stained glass. Most medieval stained glass in England was destroyed during the Reformation as "images of God" were destroyed by the Protestants.

They say that moving is one of the most stressful events that transpires in a persons life. You would think that after 16 or 17 moves in our life we would be accustomed to it. We are blaming the struggles of the last 30 days on old age. With only 8 hours of sunlight a day, rain and hail, and most of our built in labor force having relocated to America it made for a long week of moving our things from the various storage locations to the house. You never really miss your sons who have left home until it is time to move the heavy stuff.
We are in and most of the boxes have been unpacked. The three week wait for internet has ended and we have stopped driving to our old place out of habit. After a year of being in limbo it is nice to be surrounded by our things again.

We have been blessed to have had a number of nice houses to live in during our tenure here in Cornwall. We pray we never grow ungrateful.

Our new address:

Taey Sekul
St. Neot, Liskeard

  1. Yes, where are those boys? On our trip back to Mexico yesterday from taking Pastor Randall back to the U.S. from his visit with us, I had to load another three church pews to bring into Mexico. My wife and daughter had to help in my old(er) age strugles! I feel your pain.
