New Year Blessings and Farewell...

Hello dear friends!!  Happy New Year!!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing the pictures from the rest of our trip to Germany.  I also hope that this finds you all doing well.  We are doing well here.  God is so good and life stays full.

As we prepare to enter 2014, we've been discussing goals, our family's future, etc. and we've come to an important decision that I wanted to share with you.  After some thinking and discussion, my parents and I have decided that it is time to say "goodbye" to "The Family Cochran".  We're very thankful for these years of blogging and think that they've served a good purpose too.  We also believe though that we're entering a different stage of life for our family.  As you've probably noticed, I simply don't have the time to keep up with it anymore!!

It's definitely a bittersweet decision.  I am going to miss it!  I want to thank each of you who have followed us, for the comments, and taking time to read the posts - I pray they've been a blessing to you!!

So with this, I bid you all a final farewell.  I pray those of you who read this that know our Beloved Savior will continue to grow nearer to Him every day...and for those of you who read this who may not know Him yet, I pray you'll begin to seek Him with your whole heart - He will be found by you!!

"And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." - Jeremiah 29:13

I also want to leave you with one of my favorite verses from this past year (actually brought to my remembrance by a dear friend - thank you!).  Such a wonderful promise from our ever faithful LORD: 

"And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

May the Lord be with you!

I'm sorry to see you ending the blog. I just started following it about 2 weeks ago. I have really enjoyed reading your posts. God Bless you all.

Aww, I'm going to miss y'all's blog!! Thanks for all the work you've put into it over the years, though, Savannah--it was so nice to be able to keep up with your family in that way. :) Got your note in the mail, by the way :) I'll be writing soon!! <3
