On Church: We witness the baptism of 4 teens in John Fellowship and the growth of their friendships. It has shown us that "success" in ministry is not what we do or don't do, but through the power of prayers that we bring people to Christ. Thank God for a wonderful team of counselors, serving with them has been a joy in 2007!
On Marriage: It's been 2 years since we tied the knot. Learning the principle of "Two becoming one" has been a pleasure. Spring has been considerate, supportive and wise as usual, thank you wife! One of my favorite proverbs coming from Spring this year: "We now adults ga la, so toughen up and learn to deal with problems that adults face!". Oh, and she's starting the pick up the ability to read my mind... which can be dangerous.
On Fun: 2007 was a fun year! We had a good ski season, where we managed to hit the maintain about 5 times. Last year I predicted that Spring would conquer black diamonds in 2007, and she did not disappoint! And of course, what's a "fun-filled" year without a vacation? The trip to Spain and Portugal definitely left many good memories for us. Mmm.... did we mention the yummy food?
On Career: We continue to enjoy our work. Ben's super thankful for the support that he receives from his company in pursuing his degree and the chance to attend the conference in November 2006. Spring on the other hand, got her wish in moving to a Business Unit Analyst position.
On Major Mistakes: People make mistakes. I do that lots. Driving the Mazda3 into an ultra-deep puddle is one mistake that I'll never make twice (see June entry). Seeing my near-new Mazda3 in the salvage yard is a sight that I will not forget. The sight of the Mazda3 surrounded by cars that had been crushed in traffic accidents made me thankful for being alive... as not too many former owners of cars in that yard could probably tell the tale without a single broken bone.
