Hello, Father.
Well, the newness of having consistent internet has already worn off, and I find myself with just a little bit of confusing “What now?” feelings. I am grateful for having all my files backed up online now so that if I ever were to lose everything I have (like in a fire or other disaster), I really don’t actually lose it all. And now I have at least performed the minimum upkeep chores on my main dozen websites, so I am moving into the territory of making NEW stuff — what a relief!! 😀

1 Thessalonians 5:3-11 ISV

When people say, “There is peace and security,” destruction will strike them as suddenly as labor pains come to a pregnant woman, and they will not be able to escape. 
However, brothers, you are not in the darkness, in order that the Day of the Lord might surprise you like a thief. 
For all of you are children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to darkness. 
Therefore, let’s not fall asleep like others do, but let’s stay awake and be sober. 
For people who go to sleep, go to sleep at night; and people who get drunk, get drunk at night. 
But since we belong to the day, let’s be sober. We must put on the breastplate of faith and love, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 
For God has not destined us to receive wrath but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, 
who died for us in order that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 
So then, encourage one another and build each other up, as you are doing.

Lord, I look at the weather forecast for the coming weeks, and I see rain almost every day until well into March. I am so very grateful that you have so faithfully prepared us, even showing me how to line the edges of the camper with contractor garbage bags — thick plastic — so that we don’t have to pull everything inwards to protect them from getting wet. I feel so cared for, so loved, so hopeful. I want to do everything all at once, make progress on all my sites and all my other projects as well. And yet I just want to watch and read and learn, learn, learn at the same time. Thank you for all the opportunities I have right now, Lord. Please help me use my time wisely, to “stay awake” and alert to the prompting of your Spirit. Help me to just float forwards, eagerly going from one task to the next, unconcerned about the passage of time or the weather outside. Help me grow inside, even as I work to grow my little digital empire, lol. 😉
