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 your awesome closeness, tenderly leading me through each day. It is such a miraculous honor to know you, and to be known of you! I have done nothing to deserve your love and the companionship of your Holy Spirit, yet in your mercy you Touch me, Heal me, Feed me. There is nothing I can do to repay what Jesus did for me, or for all your daily kindness. I can only just do my best to serve you with this short life I’ve been given. Help me to do that better all the time, Lord. Mold me and renew me, so that slowly I become more YOU than my own self. Amen.

Matthew 5:1-10 ERV

When Jesus saw the crowds of people there, he went up on a hill and sat down. His followers came and sat next to him. 
Then Jesus began teaching the people. He said, 
“Great blessings belong to those who know they are spiritually in need. God’s kingdom belongs to them. 
Great blessings belong to those who are sad now. God will comfort them. 
Great blessings belong to those who are humble. They will be given the land God promised. 
Great blessings belong to those who want to do right more than anything else. God will fully satisfy them. 

Great blessings belong to those who show mercy to others. Mercy will be given to them. 
Great blessings belong to those whose thoughts are pure. They will be with God. 
Great blessings belong to those who work to bring peace. God will call them his sons and daughters. 
Great blessings belong to those who suffer persecution for doing what is right. God’s kingdom belongs to them. 

Lord, my husband is truly the most humble person I know (also the most arrogant and proud, which tickles me) — I ask you to give him land in this world, this life, so he can have a “home base”, somewhere to stockpile to his little heart’s content, lol. And I desire to please you above all else, so I thank you for always satisfying me with the journey towards that goal. I thank you for all the HOPE you give to both of us. THANK YOU for keeping my Mate clean and joyous despite working in the ‘hood. Please make his time there short, protect his body and mind and heart and spirit, Lord. Preserve him, help him to remain untouched by the negativity and vileness that surrounds him. And bring him home to me in your perfect timing, Father. Thank you. Amen.
And in other news…
LOL, thank you so much for helping me be brave at my sister’s church yesterday AND for creating a FUN new brand, Thor’s Woods!

Thank you for all the awesome exercise I’ve been getting as well, Lord. My knee seems stronger than it has in months — PLEASE help me not mess that up! Thank you for helping me to have an awesome dinner and dessert ready for my weary sister when she returned home yesterday from her seventh day in a row of work. Please help me to make enough money this week to pay my bills and send my packages to my Mate and my birthday son in Colorado. I miss them both, Lord. Thank you for giving me such an awesome family… never thought I’d say THAT!!! 😮
