I am often inspired by my friend Suzanne, although she probably doesn’t know it. I wish you could all know her, but I suppose that’s what Heaven will be for: meeting each other’s wonderful friends. With props to Suzanne, here’s my own link to favorite posts from the past.
In January, I was rather contemplative about the amount of control we have in our own lives. I seem to get rather introspective during the winter. I suppose it has to do with having more down time. By the way, I have pretty much the same goals this year. How about you?
In February, I caved in and did the 25 things you may not know about me thing that went around blogs and Facebook. So . . . here are 25 things you may not know about me. Well, unless you read them the first time . . . and then you should know them. 🙂
March means Spring Break! Here’s what I did on mine last year.
April is spring and things coming back to life which makes me want to get up and dance! Seems like these people wanted a little celebration too.
In May, I also wondered about coloring my hair. THAT was fun!
June was Daniel’s birthday, but it’s on the 14th, not the 13th. I also attended the Christian Scholars’ Conference, an event which had a profound impact on me. I had a hard time putting it into words, but I tried.
In July, I was still pondering thoughts from CSC. Seeking truth is very important to me. I want to be able to say that truth-seeking is the focus of my life. However, sometimes reality hits and it’s hard to be all ivory tower philosophical, even for a thinks-too-much person like me.
September was mostly a series of reposts from Scot McKnight’s blog. I took advantage of the theological discussion to include some of my favorite words from Bono.
In October, I took my boys to a pumpkin patch and was able to get some beautiful pictures of sunflowers. I love sunflowers for many reasons. They add some light to the time of year when things begin to darken. They were a favorite of my grandmother too. I love my Grandmother and still miss her.
In November, I paid tribute to my dad in the midst of trying to post every single day. That was challenging since I didn’t have functional internet connection at home. I also took time to remember my Grandmother’s favorite Thanksgiving hymn.
December already? I mostly posted Christmas songs and I hope you enjoyed them, but my favorite post is the one just before this one. I love the prayers and the idea of new beginnings.
So that was 2009. Wow. No wonder I’m tired.
