Year in Review

Sunday’s ser­mon was a year in review of the last year’s ser­mon series and a pre­view of next year. I had been kind of think­ing along the same lines for this post even before hear­ing the ser­mon so here goes, a year in review.

I tried to com­mit myself to sev­er­al things and well, I haven’t done all that well in some areas and have done ok in oth­ers. I have done ok as a “house hus­band” and doing web devel­op­ment and serv­er main­te­nance for clients. I was doing pret­ty good for a while with regards to try­ing to take care of my health although towards the end of the year I have real­ly strug­gled not hav­ing health issues.

I have real­ly done a lousy job in keep­ing up on this blog. I don’t know if I ever said it out loud but I real­ly want­ed to post at least twice a week.  I am gonna try real hard to achieve two post­ings a week aver­age next year.

But where I have real­ly fall­en off the wag­on is the one area that I want­ed to be real­ly con­sis­tent. I am part of the research team at Flatland Church. As my health fell apart so did my focus on the research team. This is one area that I have to improve on seri­ous­ly now. First of all, this is a min­istry that I believe God has pre­pared me to do. It is a way to par­tic­i­pate in the “life” of Flatland Church even though it is pri­mar­i­ly an invis­i­ble min­istry. It is my prayer that God will give me the health to recom­mit myself ful­ly to this min­istry and/or what­ev­er oth­er min­istry He may want me to do to give to the church.

Finally, one thing that I want­ed to do dur­ing 2008 was get back into pho­tog­ra­phy and my cam­era has sat idle way too much. In fact, I don’t believe I have tak­en a pic­ture with it since late spring.  I lis­ten to sev­er­al pho­tog­ra­phy pod­casts and a cou­ple of them have assign­ments, “Take a pic­ture with this theme.” I am going to try to do these assign­ments — get out of my cave — and I will post the best of these pic­tures on this blog. I would look for­ward to any com­ments peo­ple might have regard­ing these pho­tos. And no, the snap­shots I am tak­ing with my iPhone dur­ing Sunday ser­vices do not count.
