Beginning the list at number five is “Lessons From Job, Part 6,” published on January 10. This was the last installment of a six-part series on truths that had impacted me greatly from the book of Job.
Number four on the list is “Living (and Dying) in Hope,” posted September 8. I wrote these words after receiving the news that a dear high school music teacher of mine, Gary Fiscus, had succumbed to his long battle with cancer.
The third most popular post of 2012 is “Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting,” published December 15, written in the wake of the terror in a school in Connecticut.
Coming in at number two is “Time for a (Real) Change,” posted on April 10. This post delves into a realization I came to shortly after my wife and I moved to a new house. While all my surroundings were new, it turned out I was the same ol’ guy.
And the most popular post made to this blog in 2012 is “Shots Fired,” written and published on November 23. This post recounts the events that took place while my wife, mom, and mother-in-law were at a mall in Omaha, NE, early in the morning on Black Friday.
