I Will Post This Before February, I Will Post This Before February...2010 Year in Review

Is it really true? Have I not posted ANYTHING since August? let's fix that.

It has been a crazy year. Have you ever really sat and thought about the last twelve months of your life? It's a lot...

Good things, Great things have happened, and also horrible things have happened.

So, here, in no perticular chronological or other order is

2010: Year in review

In May of this year, I graduated with my Bachelors, immediatley, of course, the questions followed: "So...when are you atarting your M.Div?"

I celebrated a full year of marriage to a wonderful, amazing woman.

I went to Myrtle Beach and saw the Ocean for the first time in my life.

I experienced the worst road trip circumstances EVER on the way back from Myrtle Beach...

We moved from Cambridge to Kitchener to begin to follow God's call on our lives to plant a church in the city.

I began to understand what true panic was when my wife had a car accident and I wasn't there with her. I don't exactly remember how I got to where she was, but I'm pretty sure it involved stealing my pastor's car and driving fast enough to alter the rotation of the Earth.

As a result of this accident, we bought a newer, better car.

And I learned to drive stick, thus becoming more of a man.

I tranferred to a new store and regained the love I once had for my job.

This was the year that we lost a dear aunt from my wife's side.

We lost a dear friend in South Korea.

2010 was the year, THE YEAR that I have been waiting for all my life. It was the year I got my father back. My dad got sober this past year. I got to go and see him in the late fall and tell him that I was proud of him. Something I never expected, but always hoped I was going to be able to do.

Finally, 2010 was the year that my wife told me I was going to be a father myself.

looks like 2011 will be an interesting year...



  1. Indeed, 2010 was eventful. 2011 will be even more so...

  2. Doesn't it make our year as roommates seem so loooooooooong ago....?

  3. 2010... If ever there was a year I wish I could redo, that's probably it. But considering that 2010 brought me the fulfillment of my greatest dream, I cannot say that it is a total loss.
