Last week Anahi turned four. Her birthday coincides with the beginning of spring in the southern hemisphere. After our recent sabbatical we are excited about entering into a new season of our own.
On Sunday, September 21, we spent a couple of hours celebrating Anahi. We sang, laughed, and blew out the candles, knowing that every new year and every new season is a wonderful gift from God. It was a sunny and ideal spring day. I ordered two cakes, one for our family birthday celebration and one to share with Anahi's friends at preschool.
As Anahi and I enter into a new year of life and embark on a new season, we are both in expectation of God's leading in our lives. While Anahi is growing into a beautiful, smart, godly little girl, I am moving toward beginning to minister, live, and embrace a new chapter and a new season in my life.
Happy spring to my southern friends, and a colorful fall to all of you north of the equator.
Norberto and Anahi Kurrle
