May 31

Hello, Father. Thank you for this quiet moment to sit and write my post. My body is antsy, restless and ready to spring into action. Thank you for my health and my energy, and thank you for excitement and hope. Thank you for clean body and clean clothes! And thank you so much for the […]

May 30

Lord, my heart is weary. I long for a compassionate, understanding hug and reassuring words. I wish someone besides you had a clue what I am going through, how strong and resilient and trusting I’ve been. But instead I feel like I am supposed to do everything perfectly, and not have any needs or weaknesses. […]

Hello, Father. What a day! Thank you for helping me endure all the stress of this day and its challenges, and thank you for the pleasant surprise this evening of finding homes for some of my things inside the biggest metal toolbox on Mr D! Heehee, sometimes I am so silly, I amuse my own […]

May 28

Lord, I thank you for your awesome mercy, your tender care, and your miraculous sustenance. Thank you for this wonderful day of peaceful rest, like an oasis in the desert, actually 20 degrees cooler than it has been, giving my body time to recover and not have to stay wet just to endure. If the […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the peace and calm I have this morning, feeling much better, more hopeful and less stressed. It does suck that people and their bogus treatment cause way, way more stress than having no electricity, no real home, and very little food we can eat without heating capabilites. I am […]

May 26

Lord, it is hot, almost 100 degrees. I thought we would be out of Texas weeks ago. Help me to not get too irritable, and to just stay light and supportive and sensitive to all my husband’s needs, and less sensitive to my own. Thank you for helping me get a full night of sleep, […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for taking such awesome care of me, gently guiding me how to get thoroughly clean and refreshed this morning despite having no electricity or hot water. I feel great! Thank you for the peace I have this morning, not worried about anything, able to focus on the present moment instead […]

May 24

Hello, Lord! Thank you for teaching me how to more efficiently post to this blog, using as little mobile data as possible. There are still sooooooo many details about life without electricity that I need to learn in the coming days and weeks. Please help me to discern what are actually legitimate, immediate needs, and […]

May 23

Hello, Father! Thank you for this extremely busy day, not even having a chance to write until I am fixing to go to sleep for the night! Please teach me how to be more efficient at using my phone to write, and being super frugal with my tiny bit of mobile data, now that I […]

May 22

Hello, Lord! Thank you so, so, so much for the awesome loving family that has helped us out these past couple days, and thank you for causing the repairs to Mr. D. to be finished early enough that I could still take a hot shower and cook one last meal before our electricity is turned […]

May 21

Hello, Father! Haha, my first time posting from someone else’s home! Thank you, Lord, for awesome people who love you and delight in helping others, even total strangers. Thank you for everyone who has helped us out this past week, even those who weren’t even quite aware of the help they gave. Thank you for […]

May 20

Hello, Lord. Thank you for sustaining me through these difficult days, while we sit helpless, waiting for Sunday and the hopeful promise of our vehicle (our home!) to be repaired. Please help me to hold together, not to break down or take my frustrations out on others. Help me to be patient and kind and […]

May 19

Lord, please help me remember that if I go too long without MUSIC, I go a little crazy!! Thank you for helping me find my way BACK — to freedom, to courage, to JOY. Thank you for the awesomeness of Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin. Thank you for the 500+ OTHER songs […]

May 18

Good morning, Lord. Father, I am really struggling to keep looking to you and keep shining the light of your Love out through my eyes and heart and actions, to whomever I come in contact with. It really SEEMS like not only Love is dead in this world, so rare an expression, but also that […]

May 17

Hello, God. Thank you for helping me through all the painful moments of yesterday. Thank you for all your tender mercies and comforts throughout it all. Thank you for showing me mercy, and helping me to show mercy as well. Thank you for your Word that sustains me. Thank you for easing the pressure on […]

May 16

Good morning, Father. Thank you for carrying my heart through this difficult time. Thank you for providing so many little joys and comforts along the way. Please help my heart to be strong, as the enemy tries to undermine my strength from within, once again pummeling me with SHAME and making me realize just how […]

May 15

Good morning, Lord. Thank you so very much for your awesome tender and thorough care of little me! Even though I don’t even know where I will be sleeping tonight, I have peace and can rest in your arms, knowing that you will be with me and I will be comforted by your presence. I […]

May 14

Hello, Father! Thank you for the thousand and one little blessings you’ve given me during this time of preparation for becoming a homeless nomad! Thank you for the hundred and one blessings of this past week alone! Thank you for the dozens even since I awoke from nine hours of sleep, at 7am this morning […]

May 13

Oh, Lord, Lord, Lord, you are taking such awesome care of me! Even though I’ve only been getting 3 to 5 hours of sleep each night and I keep getting little moments of fear, you keep showing me over and over your gentle kindness and care, leading me faithfully what to do next, and next, […]

May 12

Hello, Lord! Thank you for teaching me so very much in the last day or two, especially what I’ve learned about SHAME! Your Holy Spirit is such a patient Teacher and Comforter! Thank you for showing me, first in Hebrews 12 how Jesus IGNORED shame, then in 1 Corinthians 13 how LOVE ignores shame! How […]
