Apr 19

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for helping me get a good early start to my day again, a few days in a row — but this time even better! Perhaps I will actually get some time to work on my favorite little pet project today, although I AM far behind schedule on more serious work […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for this awesome day, and all the fun and closeness with my Mate. Thank you for giving us the pair of scissortail flycatchers to admire while they were hunting in the field in front of our truck. Thank you for the chance to hear a tiny bit about how my daughter […]

Apr 17

Hello, Father! Thank you for this peaceful crazy day and thank you for my Mate’s new phone and the ability to talk to my son — and for him to be humored by my silly Mate and his antics! 😀 Thank you for helping me thrive despite less than optimum sleep, and thank you for […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you so much for all that you have blessed me with, especially your presence in my life, letting me know you are there and you care. Thank you for my Mate and my children, and please continue to nurture and grow each one of them, faithful Shepherd. Thank you for the […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for the awesome progress on my pet project, and thank you for the balance achieved between working and giving. Please help me to know when I need to take a break, and please help me understand better all the time how to refresh my brain, body, spirit, and emotional stability. Teach […]

Hello, Lord. Thank you for this nice peaceful Sabbath day, and thank you for encouraging me to take a day off to relax and restore my soul a bit. Thank you for holding our little camper together through these rough winds that have returned, and thank you for being the ONE to decide how much […]

Apr 13

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the nice cool rain this morning, and thank you for giving me a big project to work on today. Please help me balance work and relaxation and time spent giving to others. Please help me to be patient and loving and yet not get too drained out. Show me […]

Apr 12

Hello, Father. Thank you for the night off again last night, and thank you for the company and good lunch out yesterday, time to get to know some new peeps. Thank you for the breeze that is keeping the ninety-degree weather bearable, and thank you for the awesome blessing of shade for me to hangout […]

Apr 10

Hello, Father! Thank you for this blessed peaceful day, and all the pleasing contrasts between simplicy and nature vs. technology and “sophistication”, lol. I don’t think I am very sophisticated myself — actually quite SIMPLE — but I AM learning to use rather sophisticated “industry standard” apps to produce video, audio, photo, and other graphics. […]

Apr 9

Lord, I feel weary and my head is hurting again. I thank you for blessing me with peace and nice weather, a safe place to sleep, and even electricity and decent food. I lift all four of my children up to you and ask you to bless each one with a personal relationship with you […]

Apr 8

Lord, you see all the contents of my heart and mind, all my struggles and triumphs, every depth of every breath (pneuma). Thank you for always being with me, every step of every day, and through every day of this difficult life I’ve been given to live. Thank you for working in me to help […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for helping us survive through the crazy high winds that blew through here last night and this morning! Thank you for holding the little popup camper together, and thank you for keeping us safe to drive into town to warm up after the temperature dropped 50 degrees in less than 24 […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for helping my Mate work on our diesel pickup truck, and thank you for the kind people who drove him to the parts store. Please be with him as he continues to work on it today, and please let your will be done for us, our vehicle, and our living […]

Apr 5

Hello, Father. Thank you for your enduring patience with little me, as I struggle through this world. Thank you for encouraging me, giving me hope, giving me support from a few individuals without whom I would probably have given up. Thank you for growing me in your lovely garden, faithfully pruning me so that my […]

Apr 4

Good morning, Father! Thank you for encouraging me in so many little ways, both yesterday and already today! Thank you for helping me climb the learning curve of Adobe Animate CC and release my third little YouTube video yesterday, even if it is only a little 6-second long animation on the Spanish color AZUL, lol. […]

Apr 3

Lord, please hold my heart and my mouth, so that I can just pass through this hard time without making it worse — for however long it lasts. At least I have finally learned that it does no good to speak my troubles out loud, for they are only ever taken as problems to be […]

Apr 2

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for getting me up and going so bright and early today, and thank you for an awesome, much-needed night of sleep! Thank you for the positive start to this day — looks like it will be a good one! Thank you for giving me several projects to work on today, […]

Good evening, Lord. Thank you for your mercy in getting through this long and stress-filled day, and thank you for allowing me a break from things a bit this evening. Please restore me, build me back up, and help me to get a very good night of sleep tonight. Please help my Mate and my […]

Mar 31

Oh my, I almost forgot to post AGAIN!! LOL. 😆 Thank you, Father, for these last couple very busy days, a good balance between spending time with my Mate and working on art and other projects. I adore this little snapshot of today, complete with Texas flag Durango boots and my sleeping Mate in the […]

Mar 29

Hello, Father! Thank you so much for all the little encouragements of the last few hours, especially my new Patron but also my more chestnutty hair, lol. Thank you for helping me through the physical struggles of last night, having to run to the bathroom so many times in the chilly wet evening. I am […]
