Lord, I am so shocked that we are still in this house. Thank you for our landlord’s mercy, for I can see how much it helps my husband. As for me, I seem to be getting used to the roller coaster ride of holding my breath and letting it out. I think facing the Unknown is not even affecting me so much. Not knowing where I will be a week from now has gotten so old that I really don’t even care so much anymore. It’s more like just a basic fact of life at this point. I just thank you for the energy I have, my heightened appreciation for dancing as an excellent workout, and the peace I dwell within almost every moment. I ask that you help me to use wisely the little bit of clothing and little bit of fabric that I have to produce a wardrobe I can take on the road — enough to not have to worry so bad about laundry. Help me turn what’s inside my head into useable, wearable reality. Help me not to go too crazy and embarass myself too badly with my uncategorized fashion etiquette. LOL

Luke 10:38-42 ERV

While Jesus and his followers were traveling, he went into a town, and a woman named Martha let him stay at her house. 
She had a sister named Mary. Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet and listening to him teach. 
But her sister Martha was busy doing all the work that had to be done. Martha went in and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 
But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are getting worried and upset about too many things. 
Only one thing is important. Mary has made the right choice, and it will never be taken away from her.”

Lord, I thank you for rescuing me from being uptight, from taking myself far, far too seriously — like Martha. I thank you for giving me four awesome children who are now each at least two decades old, able to be independent and not needing me to care for them. Thank you for this time of freedom when I can relax and sit at your feet — or beside my husband for countless hours while we just enjoy music and fellowship and exploring your world and whatever within it you have for us at that moment. I give you all my needs — for bodily nourishment and exercise, for shelter and clothing, for protection and provision of all kinds. Help me to so completely trust you for all those things, that I develop a reputation for being a Mary rather than a Martha. And if it be your will, help me to reach some other women out there somewhere, sometime, and encourage them to relax and enjoy you and what you have for them, as well. Help me to be a beacon of YOUR peace and love wherever I go, little Hippie Chick that I am, lol. 😛
Lord, please help me figure out why my sewing machine is not working, now that I really seem to need it! 😯
