May God bless you in this season. I know that not everyone believes in God. I pray that God reveals Himself to those that don't.
For you all, I pray that Jesus comes into your life in a meaningful way this year. That you may understand for the first time, or understand more deeply, the meaning of Christmas, the birth of God's one and only Son.
It was an incredible year for me. I married a true blessing, the most wonderful woman in my life, Patty. We were married on Valentine's day of this year. We spent our honeymoon in Martha's Vineyard (an island off the coast of Massachusetts). I am blessed each day that I get to spend with my wife. God is working in our lives, drawing us closer to Him and to each other. We have been through so much together. There were other weddings that we went to this year and more to come. We have been attending a weekly Monday night Bible study (with a recently added Facebook group). Through these experiences and through our daily lives we are learning so much. We have been strengthened in our never-ending pursuit of balancing spirit, mind, and body.
We took and were in a lot of pictures this year:
More still to come, Picasaweb is running low on space and Flickr has an monthly upload limit that we somehow always seem to hit :)
I even wrote a few blogs:
On the wedding
On looking back at high school after 10 years
On changing hearts vs. changing minds
On being nice
On Google Chrome OS
And also on other things and saved lots of links on my blog.
I am also trying to write more, including on my dissertation, and in a prayer journal. If you have any prayer requests, let me know.
Have a wonderful Christmas season and a Happy New Year!
With lots of love,
