This is the time of the year when I, like so many others, reflect on the closing of a year and start to catalogue the highlights of the previous twelve months. But I don't think I've ever thought of it exactly the way John Piper does. Check out his thoughts on the passing of time in this short film--it starts out on a sober note but ends in a burst of joy. Despite the numerous times I watched it during post-production, I always found myself smiling back at John Piper as he gets excited about the future.
(Bonus: You also get to see some fun historical footage of John and Noël Piper early in their marriage; Noël and Talitha making pie together; and scenes from their home. It was a lot of fun to film this with them!)
