Moving to a new country or just across town is filled with hope and fear, ups and downs, excitement and anxiety. There are both new things to learn and pain for the things that will no longer exist.
Yet we know we are not alone in this experience, for human migration is as old as Creation. Remember Adam and Eve leaving the garden? Or Abraham? Moses and the people of Israel? Even Jesus himself was a refugee! Although factors vary, we read throughout Scripture about movement and displacement due to famine, slavery, and in some cases death.
