Good morning, Father! Thank you for your awesome provision and protection, for getting me home safely last night through all the crazy traffic and construction. Thank you for the joy in my heart this morning, and my excitement to make progress on my goals, both work and personal. Father, I pray that you be very […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the humbling experience lately, and thank you for your enduring patience and lovingkindness. Father, I ask you to help me to speak less and more mindfully, and to watch my thoughts and prune those as well. I believe this is what you are giving me to do, to grow […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the nice visit with my son yesterday, and please help him on his first days back to classes. Please bring people into his life to encourage him and give him feedback. Help him enjoy some of his learning, even the political science. Restore him in your favor, Lord, and […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the peaceful day of learning and relaxing yesterday, and thank you for motivating me for a nice 3+ mile walk after the sun went down! Thank you for all the awesome exercise I’ve been getting lately, and the motivation of recording my home exercises on my phone app. I […]

Good morning, Father! I am excited to have this nice Sabbath day! Thank you for hiding my own fears far from me, so I can focus on whatever you have me to do today. I would like to do some learning and some art, and to fellowship with you and perhaps my family. However, more […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the nice time of fellowship and fun yesterday, and thank you again for helping me overcome some of my fear and to therefore be able to feel so hopeful and lighthearted this morning. Father, I am a bit discouraged on the lack of response to the Spanish Trading Cards […]

Aug 25

Hello, Father! What a strange day so far. Thank you so much for helping me face my fear and overcome such huge obstacles in my silly little worry-mind! Thank you for your awesome care and enduring patience with me, Lord. Please help me to complete my next Spanish project to put up on the site […]

Aug 24

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for choosing me, Lord. Thank you for your constant care and pruning and nurturing in the “garden” that is me. I look forward to some day being able to be a gardener with you! Thank you for the awesome progress and peaceful day yesterday. It was good to […]

Aug 23

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the peaceful comforting of my heart by your Holy Spirit early this morning, and thank you so much for the strong assurance that you’ve got my husband covered on his birthday! Please be with him everywhere he goes today, Lord. Give him a surprising measure of peace and joy […]

Aug 22

Hello, Father. Thank you for the progress made last night, although it appears that it will be too little, too late. It appears that we will be kicked out of our home ASAP, and although this does not make me sad, it makes me worry. The biggest obstacle seems to be that I have no […]

Aug 21

Hello, Father. I feel so “off” today, and I am getting a bit frustrated with myself now. I write, erase, write, erase. My head feels funny. I know that my head has been stuffy, and it was even bad enough to take a sinus pill last night. So perhaps that’s the problem — I just […]

Aug 20

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for helping me sleep in just a bit today, to make up for this crazy last week! Even though I was up and moving by 8:30, I feel very much refreshed, as if I’d slept even later — thank you! Father, I thank you also for dealing with […]

Aug 19

Good morning, Father! Thank you for all the changes that are happening and fixing to happen, even though some of them are quite scary. But that is okay, because it is forcing me out of my comfort zone. Growth always seems to be a good thing, even when it has a cost. Thank you, Lord, […]

Aug 18

Hello, Father! Thank you for the awesome healing and restoration and growth and learning in the last 30 hours or so! And whoever is reading this who has been praying for me and my family, thank YOU, too! 😀

“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing […]

Aug 17

Good morning, Father! Hey, this is pretty cool, being up and already having two new blog posts done by 5:30 am (on ArtStudioIdeas and CreatorsHeart)! It sure surprised me that when I let my body lead, telling me when to get up without looking at any clock, that I actually was up before 4am. Now, […]

Aug 16

Good morning, Father. Thank you for a good night’s sleep and getting up and working pretty early today. Please help my heart not to fall off the edge of this cliff, Lord. I am doing my best to cling to you and not look back or down or even immediately ahead. I have hope for […]

Aug 15

Lord, I feel my heart growing bitter and attempting to put up a big wall of self-preservation. It is scaring me. I am not going to make it if you do not intervene. I will become like those who do not know you, with an angry heart where love and peace cannot dwell. Please take […]

Aug 14

Good morning, Father. Thank you for giving my husband time to vent while still making it short enough that my ears did not get overwhelmed. Please be with him today, and move him forward in your plan for his life. Bring him very close to you and reveal to him whatever he needs to see, […]

Aug 13

Good morning, Father. Thank you for this little bit of cooler weather we are having, along with some rain! I am really looking forward to moving back north some day, if your will allows it, and growing a garden — a real garden that doesn’t have to shut down for most of summer in the […]

Aug 12

Good morning, Father. Thank you for getting me up before the sun and going for a three-mile walk! Thank you for the breeze, the pinky sunrise, the birds, and all those crazy Canadian geese! Thank you for making it so that I was back home for my husband to vent to about his work, and […]
