As I look ahead to 2013 and back at 2012, I wanted to share with you 10 of my favourite blogs and videos from the past year. As you will see, it’s a nice mix of family, ministry, and the Vancouver Canucks. Enjoy!
(For the written blogs, click on the title to read them).
This was my most-viewed blog of the year and for good reason. Sean left me a total of 23 text messages imploring me to bring some toilet paper up to him. The messages were a nice mix of ALL CAPS orders and emoticons. It turned out that there was a full roll next to him in the bathroom that he didn’t see. Ultimately, I’m glad he didn’t…otherwise we wouldn’t have this beauty of a blog.
My much-anticipated catch-up session with a youth minister got off to an auspicious start this evening. Upon entering my favourite Japanese restaurant, I told the owner that I would need a table for two. As one of the waiters led me to a table, a woman who I didn’t know entered the restaurant immediately after me. Somehow, the waiter thought that the woman was with me (my wife wouldn’t have been too happy) and somehow the woman remarkably didn’t see me sit in the booth first. Once she sat down she finally looked at me across the table. Slightly embarrassed, she gasped “Oh sorry…I thought that he was seating ME.” She quickly made her way to another table as I tried to stifle my laughter.
An honest mistake to be sure. And in retrospect I don’t blame her for wanting to sit with me. Kidding. Sort of.
