The best for me of 2008

Here's a highlight of the best of what I experienced in 2008:

I assisted in the delivery of our fourth child, Emmerson Caroline Griggs

I baptized my oldest daughter Chandler after she gave her life to Christ

Wake Forest made their third consecutive bowl game and I've been there for every one

I read the Bible cover to cover

I read more books cover to cover than any other year in recent memory

2 of my 4 kids are in school every day

I have completed my 8th year of ministry at the church where I serve

All six of us flew out to Seattle together and survived the round trip

Five Sided Coffee came to a close (but I still roast a little here and there)

In spite of all the financial mess, the Lord has blessed me and I can pay my bills

My wife is still the greatest wife ever and my kids are still the greatest kids ever
