Hello, Father.
Thank you for helping me make a little girl’s dream come true today, LOL. My young niece (actually grand-niece or whatever) KK has been dreaming of creating her own YouTube channel. Since she and her two sisters are staying at their Nana’s — my sister’s — while I am staying here as well, I have been blessed with the chance to help her turn her dream into a reality. When the girls were all outside taking turns on the tractor and the riding lawn mower, KK found that she was too small to ride the mower, and she was upset. I suggested she video tape her sister riding it, and she’s been creating videos almost nonstop ever since, lol. I took two clips and worked my magic using Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Media Encoder, and produced a simple first video for her channel, and she is overjoyed, along with her sisters who have sent links to the video to their friends and family, lol. You won’t see my name on the video anywhere, but I am in it, showing her some tricks…

Thank you, Father, for giving me a new skill that I can use to bring people joy and delight and encouragement! 😀

 
2 Corinthians 9:6-13 ERV

Remember this: The one who plants few seeds will have a small harvest. But the one who plants a lot will have a big harvest. 
Each one of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give. You should not give if it makes you unhappy or if you feel forced to give. God loves those who are happy to give. 
And God can give you more blessings than you need, and you will always have plenty of everything. You will have enough to give to every good work. 
As the Scriptures say, “He gives generously to the poor; his goodness will continue forever.” 
God is the one who gives seed to those who plant, and he gives bread for food. And God will give you spiritual seed and make that seed grow. He will produce a great harvest from your goodness. 
God will make you rich in every way so that you can always give freely. And your giving through us will make people give thanks to God. 
The service you are offering helps God’s people with their needs, but that is not all it does. It is also bringing more and more thanks to God. 
This service is a proof of your faith, and people will praise God because of it. They will praise God that you freely share what you have with them and with all people. They will praise him to see you following the Good News about Christ that you openly accepted. They will praise God because you freely share with them and with all people. 

 
Lord, I have NO money to share, to help others, or even to provide for myself at this time. But I know that you see how I freely give everything I DO have — my time, my skills, my labor, and all my thousands of pages of printables I’ve made for teachers all over the world. Lord, you know my heart better than I do myself. You see my needs, my desires, my own dreams. I ask nothing for myself, for I have everything I need and am quite content. However, I do ask that you be very, very near to my husband right now, Lord. I am concerned for him. I haven’t heard from him in about 24 hours now, and he seems to be struggling emotionally, mentally, physically. It is nearly driving me crazy not being able to be with him, to help him, to encourage him, to massage his sore muscles and comfort his weary heart. Father, I know you love and care for him more than I do myself. Please be there for him while I cannot, and bring him to me safely in your timing. I trust you completely, my Shepherd. I even trust you with my best friend and Mate. Let your will be done in our lives. Amen.
