kick rocks, 2008

2008 has been a year of revolution for me. I don’t think I have experienced as much clarity of life as I have this year. This December 31, 2008, I am reflective in a myriad of ways. Celebratory while sad, reminiscent while looking ahead, mournful while hopeful, and excited while nervous.

I won’t join the mass bloggers making top 10 lists and whatnot. What I will do is say thank you to all of you who have seen some obscure reason to read my words and thoughts in 2008. I am deeply appreciative for each and every one of you. I hope that something that I shared was as encouraging to you as your participation (both public and private) was to me.

I have grown immensely as a man and as a father. I have made many mistakes and learned a lot about relationships – healthy and otherwise. I have seen hello almost as much as I have dreaded goodbye. I have witnessed a revolution as I have been given to want to be a part of that revolution.

2009 looms with so much hope and the unexpected as many of my friends and family and fellow Americans are jobless or near homeless. I join you in petitioning God to not forget us. I join you in thankfulness. I join you in glaring hope.

Kick rocks, 2008.

Welcome, 2009.

    revolution: a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure. esp. one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence

    matthew 11:12 …the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

    not that I’m advocating violence…

    Truly the whole of creation is crying out for the winds of change to come, we must be resolute in
    recapturing not only our country but the world as a whole. Our whole world view has to change, the way we as americans live has got to change . We can’t look to our leaders…not even Obama…but within. That change that happens inward and is acted outward. We The People.

    Freedom, hopes, dreams–I
    am the sea
    washing over
    Arid, vast, empty–I
    am a country,
    a land, aching to be
    damp, moist, fertile

    On a more personal note, this slacker actually worked today so truly the
    winds of change are coming. Lol.

    raising my fist high with you Kenn!
