Hello readers! Like I’ve said before, time really flies. Exactly a year ago on this day, I announced and launched Fool’s Bench with my first 4 posts. And since then, it has become a weekly rhythm of mine to write something fun or inspiring to just share it with all of you.
At times, ideas came easy and I would have a lot to write about. On other occasions, I struggled to even type a word. But no matter what, I am so glad and thankful for all the support and encouragement I got in the past year from my friends and readers – you.
Thank you for your kind words, affirmation and comments every single week. It is because of you that I know I am making a little difference through the Internet. And that keeps me writing.
So I can’t believe it, but this is my 63rd post! And what’s a better way to celebrate this day than to look back at some (well, actually 30 ) of the posts that were written here in the past year? Come on, let’s travel back to a year ago.
Written exactly a year ago at the launch of Fool’s Bench, this post describes what my church is to me.
Originally a sermon by Pastor Lia, “Ambidextrous Faith” talks about having faith in our battles and finding strength in God.
One of my first few attempts at writing something creative, haha.
Written out of a personal revelation, this post shows you from just ONE chapter alone, how amazing the Word of God can be.
On Thanksgiving last year, I wrote about my incredible pastors & leaders in church.
One of my personal favorites, “Star Wars for Beginners” is to this date, the most read article on Fool’s Bench.
Never too late to read my first post of 2016.
My favorite movies from 2015!
More than just a song.
“Every saint has a past; every sinner has a future.”
“You never get what you want in life. You only get what you prepare for.”
“Why I Enjoyed” is a series of posts where I talk casually about recent movies I’ve watched. “Zootopia” is still one of the best in 2016.
On Good Friday, I wrote a short post about our imperfect world and what we can do about it.
The April Fools’ joke that pranked hundreds of people.
Every 3 months, I write about upcoming movies that I am looking forward to.
I believe. Do you?
A post dedicated to Pastor Lia on her birthday this year.
This is the second guide that I’ve written about a fictional universe. I’m such a geek.
Don’t just breathe. Live.
One of the funniest posts I’ve written. Or at least I think so.
The 50th post on Fool’s Bench.
First post after a one-month break. These people are awesome.
Witness how “funny” me and my friends are.
Could our current pain have a future purpose?
Heroes can rise out of the most unlikeliest of places.
Probably the most read post so far in 2016, this post like the movie, was a surprise hit among my friends.
A new series of short posts that literally kills time with jokes – around 1 minute to be specific.
Give with the right heart; give cheerfully.
The last post of Year One describes the journey of a dream.
And that’s it for Year One of Fool’s Bench! Once again, thank you for reading and sharing, and I’ll see you in the next post.
