The new year has come. 2011 was a big year for me. 2012 was also a big year. What will 2013 bring? I don’t know. I do know Anna will grow older, celebrate her first birthday, and become more like a toddler than a baby. I will gain experience, laugh, cry, and grow.
I don’t have a list of resolutions for myself
this year, just the desire to become more like Jesus every day. I want to serve my family and grow the
Kingdom in my own small way. Whether I
am preparing a meal, giving Zachary a listening ear, rocking our baby, or
tidying our home, I want to be cheerful, thankful, and encouraging.
Zachary and I hope to visit my grandmother in
the spring and continue on to finally see the Grand Canyon. These are dreams – our plans. What will our
reality look like? What unexpected blessings and challenges will we face? Our lives are in the Lord’s hands. I do know I am looking forward to 2013!
