Good morning, Lord.
Thank you for giving me the stamina early this morning, before the rain, to get the entire front yard mowed besides where there is water, in the ditch. Thank you also for helping me get the last of the super-tall grass by the house mowed, too…! I am looking forward to a nice cool, refreshing shower, and some quiet moments with you, Father. I give you this day, and my heart and mind — and my time. Thank you for caring for me, and thank you for choosing me!
Psalm 145:8-13 ERV
The LORD is kind and merciful, patient and full of love.
The LORD is good to everyone. He shows his mercy to everything he made.
LORD, all you have made will give thanks to you. Your loyal followers will praise you.
They will tell how great your kingdom is. They will tell how great you are.
So others will learn about the mighty things you do, about the glory of your kingdom–how marvelous it is!
Your kingdom will never end, and you will rule forever. The LORD can be trusted in all that he says. He is loyal in all that he does.
Lord, please help my tiny dog, Rusty. I know he is getting very near the end of his life, but I ask you to comfort him and don’t let him suffer. When it is time, take him gently. My heart hurts and my eyes cry, but I thank you for giving me such a sweet and faithful companion for all these years. He has helped me understand what faithfulness and loyalty are. He has helped me countless times to be more cheerful and look on the bright side of life. Father, I give him to you. I put his aging body and mind into your strong, capable hands, and I TRUST you with him, Lord. Thank you.
