The winner of Day 2's giveaway (Meander Scar, The Seeker, A Love of Her Own) is:
What is one thing or area where God has been changing you in 2010? Do you have any scriptures to go along with/support that?
Vickie: He’s been teaching me to lean on him more and to not do things on my own. Do you have any scriptures to go along with/support that? Proverbs 3:5 & 6: Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Susan: This has been a year of changes and new perspectives. Many times I’ve asked God to show me what is important in His eyes. Micah 6:8 tells us, “He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Tell one thing that God did for you this year just to show He loved you.
Vickie: I don’t know that I could pinpoint one single thing, because He did many things.
Susan: We have adopted two animals this year (a cat and a horse), and both have brought joy to our family.
What is your favorite memory from 2010?
Vickie: My husband and I, our four boys, my dil, and our granddaughter went together and rented a cabin on Table Rock Lake for two days. One day we all went to Silver Dollar City. It’s the first time since our oldest son married and our boys were grown that we’d all gotten away together. It was a very special time, especially since our #3 son was leaving. He is now deployed to Egypt for a year.
Susan: Entering our new home together.
Do you have any New Year resolutions in mind?
Vickie: Yes, I have a number of books to write this year, and my goal is to get each one done and turned in on time.
Susan: Not really. Every year I just want to do my best as God allows me to. I don’t make formal resolutions, but I always have goals.
What is one goal you have set (or God has put on your heart) for 2011 apart from New Year resolutions?
Vickie: To do a better job in having a daily devotional and time in prayer. I’m the kind of person who jumps out of bed and gets right to work, so I have a habit of thinking I’ll do my devotions later in the day, but work tends to keep me busy, and I forget. I want to do better in that area.
