I was inspired by Elizabeth Esther's post last week where she listed her top 15 posts of 2011. I am nowhere near the level of EE with regards to writing, readership and the like, but I thought I'd look through my posts from 2011 and highlight the ones that stood out on their own.

Some of these inspired more feedback than others. In reviewing these, I see that I write more reflection and confession than controversy. I guess that's par for the course for my personality as I prefer to profess my faith and state my position rather than take a defensive and protective stance braced for a fight.
I rather enjoyed reading through these again. Sometimes I think, "Wow, I wrote that?!?" and on some things I think..."Uh...wow...I wrote that" while shaking my head. :)
If you have any comments to add, please do so. I read every comment faithfully and earnestly.
