You've got me beat... I've moved 13 times :o) Six times growing up, twice as a single young adult, and five times since I've been married.Fun question!
Wow! You're a mover and a shaker! Well, I moved once down the road when I was three (we live on a farm and literally switched houses with my grandparents).Then I moved away to college (does that count?) My husband and I moved three times in our first three years of marriage. Yikes. We finally settled down for awhile then moved again back to where I grew up on the same familiy farm (but in a new house). I'm hoping to never move again until I move to my eternal Home. We'll see what God says . . . ;)
We moved a little bit when I was growing up...let's see...from Memphis to Mississippi (x 2), back to Memphis (x 3), to outside Memphis in the county (x 3), then I moved out back to Mississippi (x 3), then got married and we have moved once since being married 15 years ago (still in Mississippi just outside Memphis). So, all in all I've moved 12 times. Wow. Didn't think it was that many! : )
I actually lived in the same town from the time I was five, until I was 21...I didn't move until I married my husband and moved to a new town with him! Since then, he and I have lived in three different rentals within the same town!
Wow - I don't think I have every stopped to figure it all out. but I THINK it is 10 or 11 times. I can't remember exactly! A lot of those were often to a different house in the same towns. Before College I had only lived in 3 towns, but many different houses. We have moved 3 times since we have been married. I often say that I can't even imagine what it is like to have lived in the same place your whole life. We actually have a couple in our church that now live in the house that the husband grew up in (they are in their late 40's). That just fascinates me!
If I don't count college I've moved 15 times. I agree with Emily that it fascinates me when I meet people who live in the home or even the town they grew up in. I love history and used to really grieve the lack of "roots" until the Lord helped me to realize that this world isn't my home anyways. Moving helps me to remember that I am truly a citizen of heaven. :) And ... I LOVE friends like you who have helped us move!~ Julie@comehaveapeace
