It is time for my annual list of the most popular posts for the years. All posts were posted this year. I re-posted videos for posts that features just a video. Three of the most popular posts for the year featured videos. Another trend was that three Top 10 lists were among the most popular posts this year.
Today’s top 10 is in honor of Sesame Street’s 40th birthday. As a child we would watch Sesame Street right before watching my dad on the evening news. Sesame Street and later School House Rock contributed greatly to my education. Today’s list is a combination of favorites and things I learned from Sesame Street. More

When I post videos I like to include something about the artist or song. I think Andrew’s description of the inspiration for this song is better than anything I might write.
In December of 2009 my wife and I celebrated fifteen years of marriage. A few days later, we got in a silly argument and I wrote this song after she went to bed. Marriage, see, was God’s idea.

To the contrary, it’s fraught with peril. Any good marriage involves a thousand deaths to self—the good news is, in Christ that marriage involves at least as many resurrections.
