What have I learned in 2009?

I have experienced much in 2009 and I have learned much in 2009. 

The actual list is way too long (and way too boring for most folks to care about and read), but there are three highlights worthy of mentioning here.
  • I learned that journaling as a Spiritual discipline is really hard.
  • I learned that being a grandfather is unbelievably awesome!
  • I learned that God is still in control.
What have you learned this year?

What do you think next year will be like?

Wow! More than a month!

Wow! More than a month has gone by since my last post.  That has got to change.  I have so many things running through my head.  And I need to express them  Yet, there doesn't seem to be the time to put them down on paper or on the blog.

But that is one of the changes that I am looking to make in this coming year.  I am going to try to be more frequent in posting.  I am trying to be more disciplined in jotting down my thoughts into my journal for ease of reference later.

And, as an aside, I am going to try to read more this year.  For those who know me personally, you know what a major challenge that will be for me this coming year.  But, nevertheless, that is what I am hoping to do in the coming days, weeks and months.  In fact, I picked up a book from my shelf this morning while I was enjoying my 2nd, 3rd and 4th cups of coffee.  I made it through the introduction and the first two chapters.  A fairly good start I would say.
