Good morning, Father!
Thank you for the ups and downs of life, which teach me so very much about myself, my Mate, my Lord, His creation, and all the awesome peeps I get to meet and interact with! Thank you for the opportunities to serve, and all the projects I get to work on. Please continue to guide me, as I look to you for how to fill my time and use my resources (including time!). 🙂

 
Genesis 49:1-10 ERV

Then Jacob called all his sons to him. He said, “My sons, come here to me. I will tell you what will happen in the future. 
“Children of Jacob, gather around. Come listen to Israel, your father. 
“Reuben, my first son, you are my strength, the first proof of my manhood. You were the most honored and powerful of all my sons. 
But your passion was like a flood you couldn’t control. So you will not remain my most honored son. You climbed into your father’s bed and slept with one of his wives. You brought shame to my bed, to the bed you lay on. 
“Simeon and Levi are brothers. They are violent with their swords. 
I will not join their secret meetings. I will not take part in their evil plans. They have killed people out of anger and crippled animals for fun. 
Their anger is so strong that it is a curse. They are too cruel when they are angry. They will not get their own land in the land of Jacob. They will be spread throughout Israel. 
“Judah, your brothers will praise you. You will defeat your enemies. Your brothers will bow down to you. 
Judah is like a young lion. My son, you are like a lion standing over the animal it killed. Like a lion, Judah lies down to rest, and no one is brave enough to disturb him. 
Men from Judah’s family will be kings. The sign that his family rules will not leave his family before the real king comes. Then many people will obey and serve him.

 
Lord, I thank you for family, and for my own three sons. I thank you for their health, and the HOPE that they will know you and walk safely beside you, where there is joy despite all circumstances. I ask you to bless my work and bring work to my Mate, so that we can some time have enough money to visit my sons and spend time with them. I miss my children, Lord — but I trust you with them. THANK YOU for loving them more than I do myself!

 
THANK YOU, Lord, for helping me create the graphics for my six categories of art stuffs, and please help me to finish out the first pages linked to by each, so that I can release them for peeps to enjoy. I look forward to working on this and so many other projects with you — creating with the Creator!
