2010 Year End Review

Posted by Emma on December 30, 2010 at 6:28 pm | Filed under:Random

As 2010 draws to a close I have spent time thinking over this past year. It has been a good year in many ways. God has worked out amazing experiences for me to have and opened the door for me to do many crazy things. Recently I made a list of all the crazy or new things I have done this year and could still remember. It is quite the list.

Crazy or New Things I’ve Done this Year:

  • Welcomed the year in with Ultimate Frisbee
  • Jumped in Lake Michigan on January 1st
  • Played over 24 hours of Ultimate Frisbee during the first week of the year
  • Got licensed as an EMT-Basic
  • Played Ultimate Frisbee on the ice and in snow many times
  • Hiked 20 miles, 10 of which where through pouring rain with the temperatures being in the low 50s.
  • Hike 40 miles in a day
  • Played Ultimate Frisbee the day after hiking 40 miles
  • Was the STEP Advanced Group Leader
  • Logged over 50 dives in a month
  • received 5 new dive certifications
  • Dove in 55 degree water in a missile silo
  • Got mild hypothermia
  • Saw God work in powerful ways as he enabled me to swim 400m in a faster time than I ever thought I could. (Considering I couldn’t swimming 400m prior to that any time would have been good with me.)
  • Went on a two day backpack trip with two of my brothers which ended up being one day.
  • Almost ran out of water on top of a mountain.
  • Ran into a thunderstorm on top of the same mountain
  • Came upon a forest fire on the other side of the mountain.
  • Was mistaken for being the wife of one of my younger brothers.
  • Hike 44 miles in a day
  • Worked registration for Family Camp (That was a blast)
  • Spent almost half the year in Texas
  • Ran a 5k
  • Wrote a book in a month
  • Shopped for 12 hours in a single day (from 3am to 3pm)
  • High-fived Bango at a Buck’s Game.

Yep, it has been a year of crazy and new experiences. I have enjoyed this year with all it’s craziness and I have seen God work in many ways. He has showed Himself to me in big ways and small ways. He gave me the strength to get through STEP Advanced and all the trials that came with it and He worked out seating and power needs on a train ride. He provided for my every need and brought me through many circumstances. I thank God for all that He has done for me this year. He is amazing and I am once again wowed by how small I am and how much He loves and cares about me.

What has your year looked like? What new experiences have you had? How has God shown Himself to you?
