Happy 87th birthday to my dad, if he were alive. And to my true Father: Lord, I am daring to hope. I have contacted over a dozen different peeps in the area, looking for a possible temporary sublease arrangement, now that I have possible help from my family. What an unexpected surprise!! I don’t know if this is how you will provide for me, Lord, but I am staying open to all possibilities and I pray that you help me stay humble, teachable, and willing to do things YOUR way, in your timing. Thank you, kind Shepherd, for encouraging me and protecting me. Thank you for allowing me time to recover in my son’s apartment, out of the Texas summer heat, while I rest my “poor tootsies” as my mother used to say. Please make my blisters heal up enough that I can walk a couple more miles this evening again. Thanks for helping me be strong, helping me to believe in myself and in life again!! 😀

 
Malachi 2:17 KJV

For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. 

 
Lord, I thank you for how my relationship to this chapter of the Bible has changed and grown over the past several years. I thank you for MERCY between husband and wife, between brothers and sisters, between children and our heavenly Father. I thank you for the beauty of this one verse, how the wife is a garment that you have designed to “cover” (kasah = “fill up”) and adorn her husband (Hebrew leboosh = garment, literally or figuratively especially in application as a WIFE). Father, you see all that has passed between my husband and myself since we met 33 years ago. You see what destruction the enemy has attempted in our relationship this last month, and over the past years. I thank you for preserving us through it all, and I ask you to help us grow ever closer and more wise and kind and patient and supportive in our dealings with each other. Please watch over my husband in this heat, as I once again have no contact with him whatsoever. Please show your mercy and give him a phone to use, or lead him to where I am at, so we can check in with each other. Please shower your mercy and peace upon him, Lord. Let him feel the comfort of your presence. Amen.
