Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for my excellent beginning with GOUACHE last night! Thank you for guiding me to new, fun, and more MOBILE art supplies and techniques! Thank you for encouraging my art, and thank you also for the new awesome system for my work as well! Thank you for giving my […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for getting me up bright and early and getting right to work. I’m still pretty excited by all the changes and the new system you gave me! Lord, I lift my husband up to you and ask you to please help him, give him something to DO, encourage his heart […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for all the encouragement in my work lately! I am LOVING how it is just flowing along: writing, writing, writing — and slowly learning to use Adobe Illustrator CC — the industry standard in desktop publishing. That ought to come in handy! 🙂 But even more so, Lord, […]

Dec 28

Good morning, Lord! This is my 364th post this year! Thank you, Father, for providing enough money for me to renew this domain (website) for another year, so that I still have a place to praise you every day. I’m not sure if you will have me continue to write every single day, but seeing […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for helping me get my computer working better, and thank you for helping me get through that horrible eye pain yesterday. Please perform a miracle and make my old contact lenses last until I can afford the several hundred dollars to get a contact lens exam and new lenses. Thank […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the awesome, delightful, most perfect weather yesterday! I felt like I was HOME, in Michigan — it even SMELLED good! So peaceful, so comforting, to have it 70 degrees and humid! With the front door wide open and fresh air pouring in the windows, I felt blessed beyond measure! […]

Dec 25

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for this awesome warm weather! How nice it was to stay out on the porch last night, just sitting quietly or listening to an audiobook, until almost midnight! Even that late it was still quite warm — about 70 degrees! AND it was pleasantly humid, like my “home” […]

Dec 24

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for giving me so much sleep last night — perhaps even too much, if I were to quantify it! 😛 Please help me to rely less and less on the CLOCK and more and more on looking to you for guidance and timing. Thank you for encouraging me in my […]

Dec 23

Lord, I thank you for the good rest, even though I have been having so much trouble actually sleeping, letting go, being unconscious, lately. 🙁 Father, please heal my Little Ones and their fears, as I truly do not know how to help my own self in that way. My everyday adult working self seems […]

Dec 22

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the awesome night of sleep, and thank you for my new work structure and focus! Please guide me in my work today, and help me to find a balance between art, website building, and other tasks. Please help me to develop a healthy balance between input and output, and […]

Dec 21

Father, there are so many things to thank you for, that I only hope I can remember them all…! Thank you so much for leading me gently into the new capability and mindset of doing my work from my phone and from my Kindle. Thank you for helping me find the right apps to use, […]

Dec 20

Lord, I thank you for making me able to see light, even when surrounded by darkness — to be aware of how much awesomeness exists in this world, even right after being pummeled by negativity. Thank you for reminding me that all I have to do is spend 10 minutes praising other artists on DeviantArt […]

Dec 19

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for bringing me safely through that emotional and mental storm yesterday! Thank you for shaking me up enough that I finally just sat still for an hour or more, just being aware and asking questions, seeking clarity. And thank you for giving me such a clear-cut breakthrough, and […]

Dec 18

Good morning, Lord. Father, please sustain me, as I know that you will, even if I didn’t ask. I only do ask because I know that it pleases you. I know that you are faithful and although I FEEL all alone and hurting, like there is no tomorrow, no hope, I know that you ARE […]

Dec 17

Wow! I almost missed a day! It’s been almost an entire year, and I almost didn’t post on one of the last few days, lol. Well, no biggie, my bad. It just was a crazy day. The high today was supposed to be 71 and the low 17, and when I got up, my husband […]

Dec 16

Hello, Father! Yay! I am finally feeling better! Thank you for helping me past the worst of that cough-and-sore-throat thing I’ve been fighting off this past week, and thank you for giving me back my brain! Haha, now I can finally see the sun again, hope for building things, motivation to do so! Father, please […]

Dec 15

Good morning, Father. Thank you for reminding me this morning to start the day with gratitude, to help chase away those worries! Thank you for caring for me, holding me up when I feel weak and faint, either inside or outside. Thank you for working with my husband and children, even when I see no […]

Dec 14

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the lovely dream, and for the good night of sleep. Thank you for helping my chest and throat get better, and please help my body to continue to get stronger and heal up. Please help my daughter to not get any sicker, but to just rest and fight off […]

Dec 13

Good morning, Father! Thank you for helping me to NOT cough, so my throat can heal — yay! Thank you for teaching me about cough drops and the difference between pectin and menthol, and the difference between congestion and whatever-this-is that I’ve been fighting off. Thank you for teaching me about my own body this […]

Dec 12

Hello, Lord. Thank you so much for giving me a respite from coughing, and allowing me a good night of sleep! Thank you for giving my husband patience and not letting him tease me toooo badly while I am without speech, letting my throat rest and heal. Father, I fear to eat, but I am […]
