Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for helping me to NOT get too excited about moisture inside the little camper, condensing ON the plastic bags that were supposed to be protecting my art supplies and clothing from the outside drizzle. Thank you for two days straight of lighthearted play and conversation with my Mate, hardly even noticing the passage of time during which the moisture dripped down upon our little dwelling each and every hour, lol. Thank you for the nice hot shower, and thank you again for our new little microwave, so we could at least heat and eat some simple items to warm our insides, heehee. I feel truly blessed, and I look forward to whatever you have in store for us in the coming weeks and months. Thank you for your awesome care, faithful Shepherd!!

Ephesians 5:22ā€­-ā€¬30 AMPC

Wives, be subject (be submissive and adapt yourselves) to your own husbands as [a service] to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife as Christ is the Head of the church, Himself the Savior of [His] body. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, That He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]. Even so husbands should love their wives as [being in a sense] their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. For no man ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and carefully protects and cherishes it, as Christ does the church, Because we are members (parts) of His body.

Lord, I thank you for teaching me how to adapt myself to my husband, my Mate, more and more all the time. I see how this is particularly important now that we are sharing the close quarters of a little popup camper and a one ton pickup the majority of our time, lol. Even when we go to our overstuffed storage unit, there is high tension between us two extremely volatile and super-intense and independent individuals. LOL! I bet you have a blast watching us, Lord. And I’m sure we’ve worn out many “guardian angels” as well, hahaha. Still, I would not trade in the extremest lows and lose the miraculous highs, for I accept the bad with the good. We always, always grow. He always earns back my respect. And we always are FREE to just “go down the road”. Thank you for teaching me about forgiveness, wisdom, and honorable submission through the last nine years of living with this man who has been my soul mate since I was twelve years old. šŸ˜€
