Good morning, Father!
I’m already having a good day — thank you! I am really enjoying adding to my two new just-for-me websites, Bahasa Saya (Indonesian) and Taxoni (Relationships in Nature)! Even though they are just little fledgling sites with a lot of kinks to work out, and even though they are not designed to make me money or anything of “value”, I am enjoying being able to have some simple success, so totally separate from the debilitating discouragement of my Spanish and other sites that feel like they are flat-out failing. The new sites are super-easy to add to, and they hit spot-on my interests. A couple of them, anyways, lol. Thank you, Father, for the much-needed encouragement, during this time when I feel betrayed by my own digital “children”. Still, I give this day to you, put my mind and hands and heart in YOUR hands, Lord, and ask you to guide me in my work and play. I want to be pleasing to you, way above feeling like any kind of “success” in this crazy world. Thank you for your enduring patience with me, Shepherd! πŸ˜€

 
Exodus 34:4-7 ERV

So Moses made two more stone tablets like the first ones. Early the next morning Moses went up Mount Sinai, just as the LORD had commanded. Moses carried the two stone tablets with him.
Then the LORD came down to him in a cloud, stood there with Moses, and spoke his own name.
That is, the LORD passed in front of Moses and said, “YAHWEH, the LORD, is a kind and merciful God. He is slow to become angry. He is full of great love. He can be trusted.
He shows his faithful love to thousands of people. He forgives people for the wrong things they do, but he does not forget to punish guilty people. Not only will he punish the guilty people, but their children, their grandchildren, and their great-grandchildren will also suffer for the bad things these people do.”

 
I love this! This is God telling us about Himself! Before He gets down to the business of the Ten Commandments — telling us His rules — He first wants us to know these things about Him: He is kind, merciful, and slow to anger (longsuffering!). He is full of great love and can be trusted. To me, all this repeats what my heart and spirit know so well: God is Faithful. What an awesome King we serve!!! 😯
