Good morning, Father.
I feel crampy and crabby this morning, quite uncomfortable, with the hormone thing again. But I trust you, Lord. I know you will get me through this difficulty, and you will keep me stable and sane. Please help me do my work and not be too distracted today, Lord. I thank you for my patient husband, and my ability to act out some of my frustration in a silly, fun, childlike way this morning — rather than resisting it and trying to be more “mature” and ending up just being irritable…! I thank you for my sympathetic daughter nearby, and I thank you for the increased communication with my youngest son lately, out of the blue! Thank you for the nice visit I had with my middle son last weekend, and please do guide me if and when to take a bus trip out to visit my oldest son soon. I really miss him, Lord. I do pray that you let me have a good visit with him soon. Thank you, Father. Amen!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 ERV

Always be full of joy.
Never stop praying.
Whatever happens, always be thankful. This is how God wants you to live in Christ Jesus.
Don’t stop the work of the Holy Spirit.
Don’t treat prophecy like something that is not important.
But test everything. Keep what is good,
and stay away from everything that is evil.
We pray that God himself, the God of peace, will make you pure–belonging only to him. We pray that your whole self–spirit, soul, and body–will be kept safe and be blameless when our Lord Jesus Christ comes.
The one who chose you will do that for you. You can trust him.

These seem good verses for me today, to fight off the crabbiness. I have much to be grateful for! My family is all pretty healthy and happy, I have work to keep me busy and art to keep me growing and Great Courses and books to keep me learning and happy! Any weepiness I feel is just due to silly hormones and such, and those feelings are not true reflections of reality. I can confidently hold onto my Shepherd and trust Him to bring me through this little valley safely and fruitfully. Thank you, Awesomely Faithful One! 😀
