I Know, I Know. Will it Ever End. Q & A Part 3...

There is still time to ask a question in my give away post. You have until February 13th. Probably you don't want to add anything else to that so that these questions will stop, huh? But it's for a good cause, so at least go leave a comment there if you haven't done so yet. Now on with the excitement...

What would a "perfect" day look like in the life of a completely healed Sheryl? the day only 24 hours long? Okay, let's assume it is and I am also going to say that it is summer. The perfect day would be one spent at the beach with my friends and my kids. (we are 3 minutes from Lake Michigan) After a day of becoming a bronze goddess we would come home and shower (since it's a perfect day, my hair would straighten itself) Off to a night out to dinner, followed by some shopping and DQ. I really wouldn't have any big plans. Just want to do the ordinary things - believing that one day I will get my healing and I'll tell you about my day!

My question is this what has GOD taught you about yourself during this past year?

I am stronger than I thought I was. My relationship with God really is the most important thing in my life. That may seem odd but after this past year & a half I know now for sure that Jesus really is number one. He has also taught me that I am okay alone. I don't need a man to make me feel complete or wanted.

What moment or event would you change in your life if you could?

WHOA! This is tough because a couple of things came to my mind. However, if I changed them then my life would not be what it is today. Does that make sense? But if I had to pick something it would be one that wouldn't change the outcome of the rest of my life. I would like to go back to my childhood and know to be "more present". If I really understood that my dad was going to die I would have spent more time really getting to know him.

Question... what are you doing right now that requires faith? ;)

That is the question from the book Crazy Love that really hit me. I felt like my answer was: NOTHING. There is nothing I am doing that really requires faith. That was part of why I wrote the give away post. That required faith that God would provide the money to give to the Mossy Foot Project. I know He will. On a daily basis I know that I am living by faith as I need the Lord every moment of the day. But I wanted to be doing something tangible.

Do you think learning dependence on God is possible without the struggles in life?

True dependence? No I don't think it's possible without the struggles. I've often said that being born in America is both a blessing and a curse. Because of our lack of daily struggle for food, safety, religious freedom, etc. we do not NEED God like others around the world. I believe that we come to really know Him, love Him, depend on Him when we need Him. When there isn't something driving us (maybe it's just me) to Jesus I honestly don't believe we depend on Him.

What would you doo-oo-oo for a klondike bar?

Ok, thanks for the laugh. This is probably against the rules but I am going to change the klondike bar to a dairy queen blizzard with heath and butterfinger, no chocolate syrup. Yes, I am addicted. It's a problem and I am not planning on getting help for it. Almost every night I get a large one. (I am working on cutting down - those things are expensive) But I would do almost anything for one. Okay that is a bit dramatic. I have been known to bribe my son to drive up there and get me one right before they close.

That's it for now. Sorry to leave you hanging. But that's all I can take of myself. There are still several more to get through, so if you'd like to stay away for a few days cuz you're sick of hearing about me...I will completely understand. This has been fun for me though, see you again soon.

"I don't need a man to make me feel complete or wanted." I love this statement. I find myself wondering if I would think the same thing. Definitely something to ponder.

I am enjoying this too! It's been fun getting to know you a little better. May you have a blessed weekend my friend!

I love your thoughts on living in America being a blessing and a curse! I couldn't agree more!

Courtney and the Boys said...

I love this whole Q & A getting to know more about you...even though I already "know" you, you know? :)

I'm totally craving a blizzard right now...thanks a lot.

What great questions! I really like the one about dependence. How spoiled I am to want greater faith with no challenges, but of course, that is how we grow. I am growing so much just through daily struggles with my little ones. Right now, I am depending on HIM to help me out with all of the discipline questions that are so critical to the faith and character of my own children. How do people do it without Jesus to lean on?

I'm glad my Target story could make you laugh. I'll admit it is hard for me to think about it now and not giggle!

These are great! Makes me dig deep down about how I would answer them, and what can be changed to better my own walk:)
Sharing is a good thing

Great answers. Wouldn't you say your believing in God to cure you and heal your marriage takes faith? Maybe that's not my place to say but I know for me it takes a lot of faith for me to believe God will restore my marriage.

I totally agree that is very hard if not impossible to be totally dependent on God without struggles.

A large blizzard every night? Man, you must have high metabolism. I'd blow up like a balloon. I like me some ice cream and blizzards too. I tend to get them more often in the summer but my more often would be like once a week. hehe

You are so cute! Good questions and great answers

Sharon said...

I can't think of a question to ask, if I do, I'll return to the original post and ask it.

I just wanted to say, I'm enjoying the chance to get to know you better through the questions everyone else are asking.

God Bless,
