I love looking back over the year and seeing what I’ve accomplished (or not so great, what I haven’t) and learned. I’ve shared a lot of these things with you all throughout this past year, but I wanted to reminisce a little.
So for starters, here are some of the top devotional posts from this past year. If you just started following my blog, take a moment to read through the ones you’ve missed. Or, if you’ve been with me for a while, refresh your memory. Maybe God has something for you in one or two of them:
- Spirit Filled Homes – guest post by Joy-Filled Days
- Rethinking Halloween – where does God draw the line?
- Set Apart for the Gospel – a look at Romans 1
- November Challenge – all about being thankful!
- My Invisible Illness – God’s sovereignty through long-term illness
- Proposition for 2012 – join me in reading the entire Bible in 2012!
- Missionaries are People Too – how you can best help them
- Christmas Card Intercession – start a new Christmas tradition
Of course, I also started sharing recipes with you all! And those have been quite popular posts… here are the top 5 recipes, in case you missed them the first time around.
- Ranch Oyster Crackers
- Pumpkin Gingerbread
- Tomato Alfredo Chicken
- Zucchini Alfredo with Bacon
- Just Right Chocolate Chip Cookies
And finally, I wanted to re-share the best 3 books I reviewed this past year. Unfortunately, I didn’t get through all the books on my list – but if there hadn’t been a list, I might not have read any of them!
- From Pride to Humility, by Stuart Scott
- A Place of Quiet Rest, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
- Slave, by John MacArthur
While I try to keep my focus on writing for God’s glory, and not for popularity or likeability, I do have to thank all my readers for so faithfully following and commenting and giving feedback. This is a place for me to record God’s work in my life, but it is also an avenue of ministry, and it certainly encourages me to know that God is encouraging you through my words. So thank you for reading and sharing and helping to build up the body of Christ!
