Top 10 Posts of 2011

I'm really having a hard time believing 2011 is nearly over.  This has definitely been the fastest I remember a year going by.  I'm once again reminded of doing my best to not waste the time God has graciously given to me.  The picture above is one of my favorite youth ministry pictures taken this year.  It pretty much describes how I feel sometimes ... having lots of fun, feeling pulled in many different directions, but feeling blessed and loved all at the same time.

Below I've listed my 10 favorite posts from 2011 (there are a few extras in there.  It's sort of like getting a baker's dozen.)  I continue to enjoy typing out some of my thoughts.  It's often very therapeutic for me to do so and, I hope, enjoyable and encouraging for others to read.
