Good morning, Father. I am feeling yucky today. Yucky body, yucky attitude, sucky outlook on life. The weather is awesome, I got more sleep than usual… so what is my DEAL?! Yes, I have been dealing with a female whom I find extremely irritating. But that really shouldn’t be enough to make me feel like […]

Hello, Lord! It seems strange to be writing this so late in the day. Thank you for blessing us so much: awesome times with my husband last night and this morning, plus peaceful and productive time at the horse place with my daughter today. Please help me to get a little time alone, so I […]

Hello, Father! I am excited to see how this day turns out. There are so many things I THINK I need to get done, but I give it ALL to you, and ask you to guide me in what I actually work on. Please be with my husband today as he repairs the wall that […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for making it possible for me to sleep in until almost 9am this morning — I really needed it! 😀 Thank you also for encouraging me to read yesterday, and writing instead of just vegging out again, wasting time being caught up in despair like I was the day before. […]

Good morning, Father. Well, today is my mother’s birthday. She’s been dead 7 years now, I can’t believe it!! She would have been 83 years old today, I believe. Happy birthday, Mom! I hope you are in a good place. I bet you are. 🙂

Hello, God. I think this is the lowest I’ve felt so far this year. I pray that you send me some type of encouragement, because I feel like my heart is too heavy to lift, to write, to work, to live. Please heal this hole in my heart, Lord God, and give me hope again.


Jan 25

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for giving me such a productive day yesterday with a new record — 10 new posts across 4 websites in 1 day — yay! I pray that you bless my efforts, Lord, and show me if I am doing anything that is NOT part of your plan and […]

Jan 24

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for helping me write, write, write — almost 100 new posts across all my websites in 3 1/2 weeks! Please help me to not only keep writing, but also to get materials ready for printed books through CreateSpace. Thank you so much for making me flexible and with broad interests, […]

Jan 23

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for letting me start my newest website yesterday! Somehow, I feel more complete, more fully alive. Like I can breathe out fully now. The pouring forth of my soul in writing deeply about my life and experiences feels like a sigh or a healing exhalation. Perhaps that is […]

Jan 22

Good morning, Lord. Thank you so much for the awesome close fellowship with you this morning! Please be with my husband today, very very closely, and give him your peace and joy in his heart. I do not like it how he takes out his frustration on me when he gets stressed, but I am […]

Jan 21

Good morning, Lord. Thank you again for your awesome patience! Some days I feel like I am taking a step back for every step forward, and I seem to go nowhere. Yet I trust that YOU are bringing me forward, keeping me humble and teachable before you. I don’t feel rebellious like I have much […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the awesome time in Southlake yesterday, for the innocence and delight and people-watching, too! 😀 Thank you for this nice quiet morning, and the ability to just stay home OR go out to the gym later today. Please guide me today in my work, show me what […]

Jan 19

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the nice birds singing on my front porch this morning, bringing the outdoors to my ears as I write and work. Thank you for the cheery wrens, both yesterday and again today already! 😀 Thank you also for letting my computer recover from whatever glitch it just suffered, moments […]

Jan 18

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for helping me past that terrible stomach trouble yesterday! I thought I was going to throw up, and for a while there I wondered if I was even breathing right. But your mercy was upon me, and I got better. I still feel like I am fighting something […]

Jan 17

Hello, Father. I am sorry that sometimes I grieve your heart, taking things into my own hands instead of doing it your way, keeping my eyes and heart on YOU. Please help me to choose you much more often, and to grow in wisdom and faithfulness.

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for getting me up bright and early on this Sabbath morning. Please let today be productive and peaceful, and help me to do your will today. Lord, I would like to take my daughter out to get a dictionary she’s been wanting, and maybe a couple fish. Please protect us […]

Jan 15

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for your patience (again)! I feel like I am stumbling along, making good progress in some things, while experiencing ongoing failure in others. Truth is, I never really know how I am doing — income is the only real feedback I ever get, and that is pretty low […]

Jan 14

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for providing for both myself and my husband yesterday! Thank you for letting me get some work done — enough so that I felt better about spending the rest of the day helping my husband do his work. It turned out very well — thank you! 😀 Now, […]

Jan 13

Good morning, Father! Thank you for giving my hubby and I some time to “hang out” this morning, and thank you for blessing his socks off yesterday! Thank you for giving him patience in his work, and blessing our family with a new go cart — how fun! 😀

Lord, I am frightened. Or at least parts of me are. I mostly know that it is safe for me to go to the landlord’s house this morning and give them money. But since it is only half what we owe them, I fear they will not let me leave. My husband says they are […]
