Good morning, Father. Thank you for a dozen small mercies and helps before even 8am this morning. Thank you for reaching out and touching me right where I am, not expecting me to heal myself and come to you spotless. I soooo love the way you Love, Father. My heart aches for peeps I have […]

Aug 14

Lord, I am really trying to hang in there, to hang onto my faith and believe that you will come through for me. But I grow more discouraged and farther into “survival mode” each day. I bounce out of it and feel certain that you will provide… but then I just sink right back into […]

Aug 13

Good morning, Lord. Father, I am sorry to admit that I feel a little nervous, almost neglected lately. I have a bill going unpaid and not even a single dollar to my name, having given every quarter and dollar to my Mate to pay our rent and to others just to help them out. I […]

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 […]

Aug 8

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me get over 7 hours of sleep in one night!! I even thought I was super-sleeping in, and was quite surprised it wasn’t even 8 hours, when it felt like over 10! I still have this horrible cramp between my shoulders, with a stiff neck — probably from […]

Aug 5

Lord, I thank you for helping me choose gratitude and trust rather than bitterness and despair. Yet I still linger right on the EDGE. You know ALL of my situation, and you know how easy it would be for me to give up right now, how justified I would be to be angry, even suicidal. […]

Aug 4

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me make it through that torturous day yesterday. I really wasn’t sure I’d make it. Thank you for giving me good friends to talk to, and thank you for bringing my Mate home safely last night. Please heal us both, Lord. Everything still hurts. I have put my […]

Aug 3

Lord, you see all. Thank you for that. As much as I went through earlier this year… and last year… whatever… (that train of thought is USELESS)… it FEELS like this is somehow harder, more heart-crushing. But yet not. Because you are shielding me, breathing on me, protecting me, encouraging me to not give up, […]

Aug 2

Good morning, Father! THANK YOU for the last two days of progress and PLAY! After 2 1/2 months of slowly making my way through thousands of pages of my printables, much of which I haven’t even touched since 2005-6, yesterday I finally finished going through the last of them, so that they are ALL updated […]

Jul 29

Hoooray! It’s official! There is NO MORE PrintableSpanish.com!! Every person who ever visits that old domain will now be forwarded to the Spanish page on my NEW site! I have set up a little messaging system, one of those little talk bubbles that appears in the bottom right corner of every page on the site… […]

Jul 28

Father, I have such a chaos of emotion inside me this morning, that I can’t even sort it all out. I feel hurt, disappointment, helplessness, shame, and regret. I feel like the lowest person on the totem pole this morning, serving everyone around me, yet just wanting to sob with alone-ness. I pray that you […]

Jul 26

Hello, Father. Thank you for the beautiful weather yesterday, cool enough even to have the window and door open wide until after noon! Thank you for helping me find where the ants were coming from and what they were attracted to, and please let the poison stuff I put out for them work, because these […]

Jul 24

Good morning, Lord. THANK YOU for the little bit of nature out my window right now (7am). The peace it brings me is very welcome, standing in stark contrast to some of the other things in my life right now. I love the little toads that hop across the road towards our camper each morning, […]

Jul 22

Father, this is a very trying time for me right now, while I race to get things done on the new ONE site, during the time of the year when I make almost no money and get the least amount of visitors and feedback. All I have is YOU to guide me… but that is […]

Jul 21

Good morning, Father. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed again this morning, having promised my Spanish peeps big changes coming a week from tomorrow. I WANT to have everything transferred over to the new site, but I keep running into problems, not least of which is a lack of money to purchase a plugin I […]

Jul 20

Good morning, Father! Thank you for helping me get so very much done these last few days, and not get all bent out of shape when I was extremely limited on what I could do. I figure you were just using the temporary limitations to guide me to work on certain things, and leave others […]

Jul 17

Good morning, Father! Thank you for a good night of sleep at last, and THANK YOU for helping me hang in there yesterday, working my way through that blind spot, breaking through to a new season in building my new ONE site!! I didn’t see that coming, and I am glad I just trusted you […]

Jul 16

Father, I honestly do not know how to take care of myself through this difficult time when life feels full of work and burden and deadlines… and I feel like all I can do is stumble forward, trying my best even if I doubt my best will do. I know you will sustain me through […]

Jul 13

Lord, I feel like I am letting you down. You gave me a beautiful gift yesterday, and this morning I am so exhausted from lack of sleep — and too frazzled to try to sleep in the daylight — that I can’t even find enough brain power to work. It was nice to give myself […]

Jul 12

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the last few highly productive days, and THANK YOU for the breakthrough yesterday — FINALLY getting to the point where I have a large enough percentage of my products updated — both Spanish and PreK-1 — that I feel comfortable enough to put a little more time and effort […]
