by- Posted on Dec 29, 2014
Congratulations to Virginia Fisher from Owensboro, Kentucky, who was selected as the winner of our Joys of Christmas 2014 special issue.
“‘A Lifesaving Drop In’ is one of my favorites,” Virginia wrote. “I love anything by Guideposts. I'm very fortunate that my grandchildren keep buying me the Guidepost magazine and any of the books they can find.”
We received some great responses to my last post, “What Miracles Moved You This Year?”
Mary McKeever: “My favorite was the story of the truck driver who saved the little girl and the Grandmother's life.”
Christy Christopher Toney: “My favorite is the story of the truck driver. My daddy drove trucks for many years, quite a bite of it from Jackson, MS, to L.A.
“He would make a trip and a half a week. The other reason this is my favorite is because of my husband who is a recovering Meth addict. He' s been clean for over 10 years and together we are finding our faith again.”
Virginia Tobias: “It is hard to choose a favorite, but I really liked ‘Walking Miracle’ in the latest edition.”
Carol Reynolds Kyle: “Every article is good and inspiring, but two showing how animals help us stand out–the dog that appeared out of nowhere to help, and the cat that found the elderly woman in a nursing home.”
Bonnie: “I'm always in awe of the wonderful stories. I loved ‘The Beacon in the Night,’ there's something about being at sea that touches my heart. God is so good.”
Kim: “I think it was called ‘A Journey to Heaven’ about Eben Alexander.”
Susan Catron Linkous: “ALL of them, seriously!”

Thank you so much for sharing your true stories of miracles and wonders with us. We publish as many as we can, but even the ones that we can’t feature have the power to amaze us.
This year has been full of ups and downs, tribulations and triumphs, sadness and joy.
Through it all, we’ve been reminded, time and time again, that despite the things that challenge us, there is a higher order and purpose to everything, one we’re only beginning to discover.
