Good morning, Father.
Thank you for taking care of ALL things, Lord. Thank you for giving me some very vivid imaginationings (heehee, I like to make up my own lil words) of MY special lap drums which I daydreamed during the church music yesterday. The hippie chick in me can sooooooo just sit and pad out a beat to the other people’s music — when there IS a beat, lol. It was encouraging to imagine both the feel and the sound of my OWN music, my own way of praising you with other people around! I look forward to creating those lap drums with my awesome Creator!! Thank you also, Lord, for selling our spare camper and giving it to a family that can really use it — even if we got quite a bit less than we asked for it. THANK YOU for encouraging my Mate with that deal, and giving him a way to make some cash and get new (used) tires for Mr. D (our big Diesel pickup)! Since his birthday is already only 3 days away, I imagine he will be spending his Big 50 in Texas. Kinda makes me sad, but I would MUCH rather see him spend the day with his mom or hanging out with his new buddies at the RV park, than to spend it packing or driving…! I trust your timing completely, faithful Shepherd. I give my heart and all its contents to you. Amen.

Psalm 16:5-11 ERV

LORD, you give me all that I need. You support me. You give me my share. 
My share is wonderful. My inheritance is very beautiful. 
I praise the LORD because he taught me well. Even at night he put his instructions deep inside my mind. 
I always remember that the LORD is with me. He is here, close by my side, so nothing can defeat me. 
So my heart and soul will be very happy. Even my body will live in safety, 
because you will not leave me in the place of death. You will not let your faithful one rot in the grave. 
You will teach me the right way to live. Just being with you will bring complete happiness. Being at your right side will make me happy forever.

Lord, I feel like that Psalm is exactly how I feel. You ALWAYS come through for me, and for my Mate. I ask you to also reveal your mercy and your faithfulness to each of my four children, and to my Mate’s son as well. THANK YOU for giving us five awesome, amazing children to watch grow and learn and develop into wonderful people that we enjoy and love. Please also touch my good friend in New York — bless her with your closeness, your breath upon her heart. And please heal my sister-in-law in Michigan — heal her body and show her what she can STILL DO in her current condition — some way she can reach out and encourage others, because she is soooooo good at it! Father, please also touch the lives and hearts of my two mothers-in-law in Texas — show yourself to them as their near and dear eternal Husband, comforting and encouraging their hearts. Amen. Thank you, Lord Jesus! 😀
