Here’s a different take on my reflections of the past year.
Decision of the year:
Deciding to lead a Lifegroup at GodFirst Church Fourways. For some reason it was a nerve wrecking decision at first, but in the end it was such an extremely blessed experience. We laughed, we cried, we ate, we wrestled, we made great friends, but most importantly, we got to know more of God through doing life together.
Event of the year:
Finding out that we’re going to have a baby.
Person of the year:
Although Time magazine has named Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg Person of the Year, my vote for person of the year goes to my wife. For putting up with my 15-hour work days, for creating a wonderful home for us and for always supporting me in the changes we made this year in how we live our lives.
Sports moment of the year:
South Africa successfully hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup was undoubtedly the biggest event of the year.
Mother Nature’s moment of the year:
Mother nature certainly flexed a bit this past year, causing some devastating earthquakes around the world, most notably the ones in Haiti, Chile and New Zealand.
F-up of the year:
Neglecting my body half-way through the year, putting my back out and busting a knee – probably comes from 15-hour work days, overall bad diet and lifting of heavy boxes while getting rid of clutter….which is a story for another day.
Thanks to Miriam for the idea of this post.
