I don't really know how I feel about it yet. It's like when you're walking out of the movie theater after a really good movie that had so much in it that you have to reserve judgement until you're far enough removed from it that you can think about it clearly.
So basically my feelings about 2012 are the same as my feelings for my recent experience with Les Miserables. I can't talk about that yet, either.
This year had ups and downs, as all years are accustomed to have. It had painfully hard moments layered in with blissfully sweet ones. It had stretches of growth tempered with patches of falling down and getting back up again.
I thought I would do a recap of 12 of my favorite posts I wrote from 2012, although that's a little odd because I only really started blogging this year. But here are some of my favorites:
- If the Lord is with Us
- When Others Define You
- What Superheroes and Fairy Tales Have in Common
- 5 Reasons You May Have Lost Followers (and Why You Shouldn't Be Too Upset)
- Top Ten Tips for Creating Top Ten Tips Lists
- Z is for Ze Accent
- T is for Tortured Artists
- E is for Ebooks vs. Books
- B is for Books vs. Ebooks
- What's the Point?
- Lauren and the Post About Titles
- Five-part Avengers review
Also, don't forget that I have spaces open for guest posts on Word Art. I'm currently open from February and onward.
- Part 1 - We Shall Gain the Universe: Avengers, Plot & Structure
- Part 2 - Sort of Like a Team: Avengers, Characters & Continuity
- Part 3 - I Understood That Reference: Avengers, Humor & Nerdiness
- Part 4 - Can You Wipe Out That Much Red? Avengers, Themes
- Part 5 - Burdened with Glorious Purpose: Avengers, Conclusions
I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to 2012 yet. On Monday I'll be posting my New Year's resolutions - and some New Year's repentance as well.
If 2012 is the movie we're walking out of, then 2013 is the sequel that we are all forced to see. On the one hand, it's a good year ahead, because God is good. On the other hand, I see dragons in the path before us. But this just means we've been given the chance to rise up, to wrestle the dragons to the ground and cut off their heads. I'll write more about this on Monday. For now, hope you had a happy Christmas, and hope you have a happy New Year.
How do you feel about 2012? Did you have a good Christmas?
