Lord I thank you so, so much for having my husband call me last night, and letting him be LIGHT…!! How very awesome to laugh with my best friend again! Lord, you see everything inside and behind and ahead of each of us, and you know what we each need most. I keep saying that the one thing I want most is to be found faithful to the end, and the second thing is for those I love to be FREE and to know you personally. Lord, I thank you for making my Mate seem free again! That brings me so very much joy…! Please keep us both close to you, Lord, no matter how far apart or close together our physical bodies are. I love him so much, Lord. I think he still loves me quite a bit, too. I give him to you, Father. I chose him, but he is not mine. I pray that you do whatever he needs, so that he may continue to be this free and light, or even more so. I put our relationship in your hands, and I ask you to not allow either one of us to destroy it, or to bring each other down. Teach us to treat each other better, to be an example to others, and a miraculous support to each other. Amen. I trust you with my very best friend, Shepherd, with my favorite of all your creations. Help me to help him, Lord, even as I remain faithful to YOU. Amen. Thank you for hearing my heart, Lord Jesus, and coming to my rescue. You have never let me down.

 
Psalm 51:10-17 ERV

God, create a pure heart in me, and make my spirit strong again. 
Don’t push me away or take your Holy Spirit from me. 
Your help made me so happy. Give me that joy again. Make my spirit strong and ready to obey you. 
I will teach the guilty how you want them to live, and the sinners will come back to you. 
God, spare me from the punishment of death. My God, you are the one who saves me! Let me sing about all the good things you do for me! 
My Lord, I will open my mouth and sing your praises! 
You don’t really want sacrifices, or I would give them to you. 
The sacrifice that God wants is a humble spirit. God, you will not turn away someone who comes with a humble heart and is willing to obey you. 

 
Lord, I thank you for humbling me over and over in so many ways, through so many trials over the past years. I thank you for the new insights and instructions you’ve given me in the last several hours. Please help me to remember your teachings, both those provided through your written Word, and those you’ve given me through your Holy Spirit, which dwells in me richly. Please bless my dear friend in New York with peace, please bless my sister for her amazing ability to put up with little me, and please be with my son today as he moves to his new apartment while trying to maintain his grade point average in his triple-paced summer class. Thank you also for the amazing people I’ve met recently, both those here in Iowa and those I barely got to know in Denton, Texas. Please show me how to give back to your awesome people. Help me to NOT try to figure things out, for I suck at that. Instead, empower me to just enJOY the things that ARE, and let go of control. I give it all to you, my Lord. Amen.
