Wow! Ladies and gents, has it really been one year already? Actually, it’s been one year, one month and one week. How cool is that, I waited to write this post so all the ones would align! 🙂 is One Year Old

To be completely honest, the last month or so has been a blur. I started a new position as associate pastor at new church, I renovated my office there, my wife and I are looking for a house, and we are deciding what to do with our cars and commuting situation… oh ya, and on March 9. 2012, turned one year old.

For a long while I was thinking of a grand way to celebrate our one year, like giving away the New iPad, hosting a free drum clinic, or doing a massive blog giveaway. But before I knew it, it was April and I totally missed the month altogether.

But that’s OK!

You see, you don’t need to wait for the passing of one year to celebrate something good. We should be able to take time to count our blessings anytime we stop and think about it.
