God wants us to be aware of what is happening in our lives and what spiritual lessons we may learn as we face various physical challenges and circumstances that arise. Moving after 19 years in one home and in one area is a monumental task and many spiritual lessons may be learned and reemphasized through the course of pulling up stakes and moving on in life.
