A new year, a new post

Well 2008 is far in the rear view mirror and 2009 is here, huzah!

I think that my thoughts of 2008 reflect a lot of what I have been hearing from friends - it's been a tough year. Here are some things I'm looking forward to this year...
  • New possibilities - you never know what great opportunities could be up ahead
  • New friends - living in another state away from most of your friends is tough going, I'm looking forward to meeting new kindred spirits this year
  • New president - I'm no Bush hater, but I do look forward to seeing the change that Obama brings to our country and to it's image/influence around the world (hopefully good change)
  • New Technology - I'm stoked to see what new technology emerges this year, I'll probably be getting a new cell phone and with it either an iPhone or an Android phone.
  • New revelations in my walk with God - I'm always learning new things about who God is, I would love for God to blow my mind this year
Some other things I'm enjoying right now:
  • I'm getting my new stereo installed in my car today - goodbye CD's hello iPod
  • I just got a bunch of new music I'm enjoying such as Coldplay, Deathcab for a Cutie, Wild Sweet Orange, and Trace Bundy to name a few
  • I'm speaking at our district winter retreat at the end of the month
  • I'm continuing my trip to the geek-side and installing a full Linux installation on my 2 gig flash pen-drive ($5 at Walmart!)
That's it for now, what are all of you looking forward to this new year?


  1. Looking forward to a lot of the same stuff. I'm looking forward to the books I will read, which will then give me a better perspective on God, myself and Fatherhod. I will be a daddy come April, so I am looking forward to that DEFINITELY!

  2. Looking forward to similar things and am praying you experience a year full of God's richest blessings!
