Good morning, Father!
Yay! This morning it feels like there is a bit of a breakthrough, and I am excited for change and the future! It is only 3 1/2 weeks until my awesome Mate’s momentous 50th birthday, and I feel pretty certain that he will be here by then. I am already starting to mentally prepare for returning to living in the camper with him and continuing our life together. It looks like we may end up staying in this area for a time, and perhaps adopting a little part of my sister’s property as our temporary cozy nook. I am not sure how things will turn out, and what the exact timeframes may be, but no matter what, Thor’s Woods will always feel like a piece of Home to me now. 🙂

 
Luke 15:1-10 ERV

Many tax collectors and sinners came to listen to Jesus. 
Then the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to complain, “Look, this man welcomes sinners and even eats with them!” 
Then Jesus told them this story: 
“Suppose one of you has 100 sheep, but one of them gets lost. What will you do? You will leave the other 99 sheep there in the field and go out and look for the lost sheep. You will continue to search for it until you find it. 
And when you find it, you will be very happy. You will carry it 
home, go to your friends and neighbors and say to them, ‘Be happy with me because I found my lost sheep!’ 
In the same way, I tell you, heaven is a happy place when one sinner decides to change. There is more joy for that one sinner than for 99 good people who don’t need to change. 
“Suppose a woman has ten silver coins, but she loses one of them. She will take a light and clean the house. She will look carefully for the coin until she finds it. 
And when she finds it, she will call her friends and neighbors and say to them, ‘Be happy with me because I have found the coin that I lost!’ 
In the same way, it’s a happy time for the angels of God when one sinner decides to change.”

 
Lord, I thank you for your delight in the lost being found, and I thank you for making a way for us to come Home to you! I thank you that you are bringing my Favorite of ALL your creations Home to ME, and I ask you to intervene in both our lives and situations and help us to accomplish all that you have for us to do before we meet back up and continue our life together. Show us what we need to get done, and give us the wisdom and courage and patience to do everything in your perfect timing. Thank you, faithful Shepherd! Amen.
