Thank you, Lord, for giving my birthday-boy son a good Mate and career and good experiences and friendships on both sides of the Atlantic! Please give him things that I cannot give him… than no human can give him… blessings that only YOU can provide, Lord. Thank you for blessing each of my other children in many ways as well. Please bring good Mates for them in your perfect timing, and please help each one of them come to know you and get to experience the FREEDOM you provide, Lord!

Psalm 119:41-52 ERV

LORD, show me your faithful love. Save me, as you promised. 
Then I will have an answer for those who make fun of me for trusting what you say. 
Let me always say what is true. I depend on your judgment to be fair. 
I will follow your teachings forever and ever. 
So I will live in freedom, because I do my best to know your instructions. 
I will discuss your rules with kings, and no one will embarrass me. 
What joy your commands give me! How I love them! 
Not only do I love your commands, but I also honor them. I will study your laws. 
Remember your promise to me, your servant. It gives me hope. 
You comfort me in my suffering, because your promise gives me new life. 

People full of pride are always making fun of me, but I have not stopped following your teachings. 
I remember the laws you gave us long ago, LORD, and they bring me comfort. 

Thank you, Lord, for the good fellowship yesterday, and thank you for helping me accomplish things that I needed to, despite my earlier emotional turmoil. Thank you for stengthening me and making me able. Please help me to finish up all the “chores” today — tasks that take me away from my everyday work, but that also provide enough distance, enough time away from my work to gain new perspectives and insights and ideas and plans. Please help me ease back into a friendly routine of work, help me to make good decisions and create good visuals and interactives and other elements of the new site. Help me prepare for the coming HEAT, and thank you for the nice COOL days that are coming in the week ahead, so that I get this little “breaking in” period with only a few hot days followed by several cooler days. I feel very blessed and very grateful! I trust you completely, faithful Shepherd. Lead on! 🙂
