I try to take time at the end of a calendar year and jot down the big stuff, which helps me get an overall sense of what’s different from the year before. So many things have changed, and I dare not try to capture it here. However, even with the difficult stuff, I am looking forward to the whole routine. Seeing again that God has been faithful for another year always leads to this becoming, ultimately, an act of worship. Plus, gaining a 365 day perspective helps me figure out the places where I need to improve. Webber said that “the road to the future runs through the past”; countless organizational strategists have said “you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been.” Throw in that “the unexamined life is not worth living” and you’ve got some motivation to look deep and wide. Deep and wide. There’s a fountain flowing. Deep. And wide.
Here’s to the revelations at hand.
