Jun 4

Lord, I can’t believe how excited I am to have INTERNET again!! How perfectly delightful to be able to access this site and write this post from my Lenny rather than from my phone — WOOT! But way better than that is the awesomeness of having something that has been taken for granted in the past be morphed into a source of sheer delight!! Already there are so many things that I have adapted to NOT having — or having a much less convenient version of them — that every little improvement, no matter how temporary is simply delightful! How amazing to be so joyous and cheerful! What an opportunity for growth, for humility, for exploration and learning — and GRATITUDE!! Thank you, awesome Shepherd, for giving me this awesome chance to serve you and to be like you and have no home on this earth, just a traveler. Lead on, Lord! 😀

 
Luke 6:33-36 ERV

If you do good only to those who do good to you, should you get any special praise for doing that? No, even sinners do that! 
If you lend things to people, always expecting to get something back, should you get any special praise for that? No, even sinners lend to other sinners so that they can get back the same amount! 
“I’m telling you to love your enemies and do good to them. Lend to people without expecting to get anything back. If you do this, you will have a great reward. You will be children of the Most High God. Yes, because God is good even to the people who are full of sin and not thankful. 
Give love and mercy the same as your Father gives love and mercy. 

 
Wow, Lord, I am actually spoiled on the little conveniences of using my PHONE to post here, rather than my laptop, using the internet! What a surprise! I never expected to actually find such advantages, haha! This is actually so FUN, not knowing what each day holds, in advance — absolutely NO “same ‘ol same ‘ol” — yippee! Thank you so much, Father, for your awesome care and fellowship. Thank you for all your mercies and protection, and thank you a thousand times for the wonderful peeps we got to meet today, who blessed us with their appreciation and open friendship, while we also got to bless them with a carload full of free stuff from our old home — pet supplies, craft supplies, kitchen stuff, tools… and they even said our stuff would be really the ONLY stuff in their brand-new apartment, until they go back north to get their things… how cool! Lord, I may be inside the c-c-c-cold air conditioning at this moment, but I am still aware that it is June and I am still in Texas. Please help me endure the heat as well as I have endured having no electricity — or else please show us when and where and how to LEAVE Texas (please?!) and go further north where it is cooler. Please also heal my husband of all his aches and sorenessess from all the lifting and moving and bending and squatting of this past week or two, especially the last couple days. Thank you for this awesome mini vacation, allowing us time to rest and lick our wounds in safety and peace. Please heal us and restore our spirits as well as our energy. Please help us both to actually SLEEP tonight! 🙂
