Though all love originates in God and is for that reason God's own love, yet we are permitted to catch and reflect back that love in such manner that it becomes our love indeed, in much the same way that sunlight reflected from the moon becomes moonlight. - A.W. Tozer

We are now officially RV owners. With the help of a few trusted relatives we purchased a 2007 Jayco Jayflight. It has two bunks in a "room" at one end and a master bedroom at the other. In the middle is one couch, one little table with just enough room for four chairs, and a tiny kitchen. (Don't worry, there's a bathroom set-up as well.)

Aaron and I haven't actually seen it yet, but our parents have all had the opportunity to check it out, and we have complete faith in their judgement and knowledge. I will go to join our children at their Grandmas' houses in one week, and will start taking pictures, making measurements, and possibly despairing over how little room there really is in a 32' 5th wheel.

We have read many books, watched online videos, searched blogs and RV websites, and communicated with other "full-time families" to prepare ourselves as much as possible, but I hope that we are under no illusions as to how different this life will be than anything in our previous experience.

I look forward to the experiment, anyway. Regardless of the outcome, we will have learned and grown, and if we can be used by God as something other than a parable of caution to the unwise in the midst of our endeavors, then whatever comes will be worth...well...whatever comes.
