I'm beginning to believe that I have mastered the art of moving. Since we came here in KSA last year, we've moved to two houses already and now, we're moving again. Our search for a new house ended when God provided one that's near to grocery stores, remittance centers, and my kids' school. It isn't too far from my workplace and its proximity to two hospitals will give me the chance to walk and flex those leg muscles again.
With moving comes the stress of packing things, mentally organizing things which are least used and which should go. With moving also comes the expenses like the rent and the purchase of furniture and appliances. Like the split-type aircon we needed to buy for our new room which amounted to SR1,700 (Php 18,000++ / US$ 450++).
Because we're still a little new here, we haven't really settled. Really settled for me means we already bought all the things we need for the house. Compared to others who have been living here for more than five years and have completed their appliances already, we haven't. Aside from those need-to-buy things, we still have to pay so many things here and in the Philippines - the kids' tuition fees (which are more than twice their fees back home), our monthly amortization for our house (click here to see how it looks like - yes, I'm proud of it), the rent for our other house in the city (which we're planning to let go once we've transferred our things), among others.
But I am not worrying. I know God will provide. Financially, yes. And I know He will also give me unfailing love, a sound mind and the power to do all the things He wants me to do. Thank you, Lord.
