I shall yet learn, and grow beyond the immaturity of adulthood. I shall again laugh, and learn the wisdom of a child.

Good morning, Father!
Thank you for this chance to grow FREE from the guilt of “failing” the site and its customers due to lack of interest on my part. My heart just has not been into the Spanish language for a few years now, and my creativity has been crippled by trying to force something that just wasn’t in me. Please raise up the community of Spanish educators who have grown accustomed to using my printables over these past dozen years that I have made them available to the public. Please bring a single buyer or a group of buyers to the forefront, someone(s) who are able to raise the money to purchase the site and all my resources on it, and add their own materials and enthusiasm to make the site GROW for all its members and visitors. Lord, I give to you the site and all the hard work I’ve put into creating the thousands of pages of materials on it over the past dozen years. Please protect it from anyone who would use it only for a source of income, with no real concern for the materials themselves or the Spanish educators all over the world who have come to depend on it. And above all, please give me wisdom to choose the buyer that you want for it, Lord, and please help my husband to be patient with the process and not put pressure on me to sell quickly or foolishly. I desire to be led of you in this thing as much as in everything else. Help me to be a wise stewardess and to make decisions according to your will and purpose, Lord. I put it in your hands, so that I do not screw it up.

Psalm 119:129-138,140,145-7 ERV

Lord, your rules are wonderful. That is why I follow them. 
As people understand your word, it brings light to their lives. Your word makes even simple people wise. 
My desire to hear your commands is so strong that I wait with open mouth, gasping for breath. 
Look at me, and be kind to me, just as you always are to those who love your name. 
Guide me, as you promised. Don’t let evil rule over me. 
Save me from those who want to hurt me, and I will obey your instructions. 
Accept your servant, and teach me your laws. 
I have cried a river of tears because people don’t obey your teachings. 
LORD, you do what is right, and your decisions are fair. 
The rules you have given us are right. We can trust them completely. 
I love your word. Time and again it has been proven true. 
LORD, I call to you with all my heart. Answer me, and I will obey your laws. 
I call to you. Save me, and I will obey your rules. 
I get up early in the morning to pray to you. I trust what you say. 

Lord, you see all that is in me, all that has happened to me, all that I have made happen. I thank you for making me strong, able to depend upon you instead of upon other people or even my own little self. I ask you to honor my obedience and willingness to do things your way, and make it plain to me, not only to whom to sell the website, but also what to do to replace the ongoing income, and how to fill my time with projects that YOU want me to work on, Shepherd. You see my heart, my desires, my skills and abilities and limitations. There are soooooo many things I WANT to do, that I would only be able to feel completely accomplished if I had a millenium to pursue them all. Help me to choose wisely in how to spend my time and energy, Lord. And please bless my efforts and let them bear whatever fruit YOU desire, my Lord. I give you my time, my hands, my mind, my heart, my life. I lay myself, my husband, and all those whom I love in your hands and ask you to guide us and protect us and grow each one of us like plants in your garden, Shepherd. And at the end of all, I ask that I be found faithful to you, as much as any simple human can be. Amen.
