Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for the crazy start to this day, and thank you for the “day off” yesterday, not forcing myself to work, work, work, just fixing a few things on the site that were annoying to me — little alignment issues and such. Thank you for making my brain good enough to hunt down bits of code that are similar to what I am looking for, clipping and combining “puzzle pieces” to create my own customized code that does exactly what I need it to do. Sometimes it is sooooooo frustrating — and yet so encouraging when it finally works. I am grateful to be able to create with the Creator, and I look forward to getting the last 130 files up on the site, consolidating them into printable packets for members as best I can. THEN, if you allow me, Lord, I hope to start filling out my main topics with subtopics and INTERACTIVES!! THEN the FUN can begin — WOOT! Truth be told, I am sure I could work a bit each day on what I HAVE TO get done, and a bit each day on the more fun stuff — but you know better than me how bad I SUCK at doing that, Lord. Still, I see how it would be a benefit if I could find that balance, turn off the “get it done NOW!” mode and turn on the more creative mode for at least part of the day. So, Lord, I lay that at your feet and ask you to help me learn better balance. My Mate sooooo enjoys my lightness and freedom, and it really helps him a lot, as his does for me. I have gotten ENOUGH done on the site now that I am not frightened and frazzled. So Lord, I am asking you to help me GROW, help me learn balance, help me learn an even deeper level of trust in you and your provision and your timing, Lord. THANK YOU for hearing me and helping me. THANK YOU for your awesome mercy and grace. Amen. 🙂

 
Hebrews 4:14-16 ERV

We have a great high priest who has gone to live with God in heaven. He is Jesus the Son of God. So let us continue to express our faith in him. 
Jesus, our high priest, is able to understand our weaknesses.
When Jesus lived on earth, he was tempted in every way. He was tempted in the same ways we are tempted, but he never sinned. 
With Jesus as our high priest, we can feel free to come before God’s throne where there is grace. There we receive mercy and kindness to help us when we need it. 

 
Lord Jesus, I thank you for the amazing gift of mercy and being able to come before the throne of God and be helped by the Creator at all times, in all seasons of my life. I thank you for your continuous, enduring and longsuffering care of little me, no matter where I am, no matter how strong or how weak I feel. THANK YOU for being my faithful Shepherd, my High Priest, and my eternal Husband. Thank you for giving me a crazy earthly husband, my Mate that I adore. Thank you for healing us, and drawing us closer together again. Thank you for your awesome playfulness and kindness and coolness and awesomeness, Jesus. Thank you for saving me, and growing me in your garden. 😀
