I have spent the first of 2013 in bed, watching Big Bang Theory, drinking coffee, and all-in-all enjoying some quiet time. Zach is playing x-box and the kids are playing nicely together in Zoe's room. Soon, I will get up and fix lunch, black-eyed peas and ham!
I've been reflecting, not so much on the past year, but instead on what this new year will hold. Lots of changes are coming up for this Bechtold family. May will bring the addition to our little family as well as the beginning of Zach's back-to-school endeavor. In the coming months we will also see what changes come with Zach's path to becoming a local pastor. Things will never be the same as it is now. I love that!
As our lives continue to grow and evolve I'm able to see the great promise that comes with change. I feel confident in God's plan for our family and that brings me comfort. Times may become difficult this year, but I know we will get through it. This is our path!
I pray that each of you will also see God's promise in change, for in it, we all will truly grow...
