What’s really important?
Viewing my social media feed over the past couple days, one of the things that has caught my attention are people posting their Top 10 Blog Post of 2015. Periodically, I look back at statistics to see which post seem to be the most popular; however, it doesn’t tend to overly influence my writing. So, the thought of sharing this information with my readers isn’t necessary one that really has resonated in that past. That being said, this morning, it was something that I kept coming back to and thought I’d share. Here they are:
Chris Arnold – Top 10 Post – 2015
- “toughest kid I know!”
- Would you pray for my Dad?
- “I wept”
- “I can now see so clearly!”
- “magnificent performance yet to come!”
- “Raining On The Inside”
- “hidden cost with a lack of trust”
- “getting the word out”
- “would you please excuse the dress?”
- “Let You Be Mine”
As I look at this list of my Top 10 Post, one of the things that it affirms is, while I do a fair amount of blogging on leadership, teams, and other business related topics, these aren’t the post at the top of my readers list. By far, the two categories that top the list year after year are: Faith and Family. Yes, it seems that what’s really important to you, my readers, is the same thing that is truly most important to me: my faith and my family.
Friends, 2015 was a year of transition for our family for which I may recap a bit in a post in the weeks to come. As we enter into 2016, God is leading us in a direction of some pretty cool stuff which aligns with “what’s really important” to us and also seems to be what’s really important to you. Please continue to pray that he’ll make our next steps clear and we’ll hopefully have an update in the weeks to come.
Thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement in the journey! May 2016 be a year that, when we all look back upon, we are able to say we grew in that which is really most important, our faith and our family relationships. As always, let me know if I can ever serve you more specifically in the journey.
