Hello, Lord. Thank you for my joy and excitement lately, and thank you for giving me somewhat of a direction for my work this day. Thank you for the boldness of my husband, and thank you for leading him to a possible free camper for us to fix up right here a few miles away! […]

Aug 30

Good morning, Father. So much to do, so much to DO!! Thank you, Lord, for giving me so very much to occupy my time, from simply snuggling and spending time with my Mate, to creating all types of digital products and designs, to watching some of the awesome NEW Great Courses Plus videos, hopefully squeezed […]

Lord, I have so very much to be grateful for! I have joy and peace in abundance. I have so few earthly goods that I am able to appreciate the smallest things, from a single book to a little box of my favorite tea bags. I have a husband who is an absolute delight to […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the peace in this household, and the miraculous acceptance of us crazy people by my “normal” sister, lol. It is good to feel welcome, not a burden but an asset. Father, I also thank you for the excitement I have in my work right now, eager to create new […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for your awesome care and even your miraculous timing, able to pull things off in time so that I get to see how you are indeed taking good care of us! Thank you for strengthening my body and helping me to accomplish much outdoor work yesterday evening, even though I […]

Good morning, Lord. Father, I really need you. That’s no surprise. Nothing has happened, I just feel really in need of your touch, your closeness. I crave your Word, your Hand upon my life and my mind and my heart and my spirit. I crave a moment of decision, when I stand in the fulcrum […]

Aug 25

Good morning, Father. Thank you for flexibility of mind and body, helping me to be so free and light that I can let go of most of my expectations, and just roll with anything you put before me. It is nice to be awoken by my Mate during “free internet” hours, able to just let […]

Aug 24

Hello, Father! Thank you for healing and recovery and growth, Lord God. Thank you for teaching me, more all the time, how to just be myself and not struggle to try to make things happen, to make myself heard or understood, or even to understand things or make sense of them for my own comfort. […]

Aug 23

Lord, I thank you for placing my best friend, Mate, and husband upon this earth 49 years ago today! Thank you for giving me a choice, so that I could choose him above all others, for he is truly my favorite of all your creations, and I enjoy him more even than trees and mushrooms […]

Aug 21

Good morning, Father! Thank you for giving me peace and reassurance, so that I do not get too stressed out worrying about how we are going to get money and a place to sleep and food to eat. Thank you for some really awesome moments with my husband, finding unexpected joys in unique ways and […]

Aug 20

Good morning, Father. Thank you for healing my crazy husband and thank you for the opportunities we have been getting already, to help my sister in small ways around her house. Father, there are a great many things that remain Unknown — such as where we will be sleeping in the coming weeks and months, […]

Aug 19

Good morning, Father! Thank you for a lovely first day back together with my Mate! Thank you for the awesome unbelievably blessed comfort of sleeping with skin contact and friendly warmth and closeness, and thank you for helping us both start to catch up on lost sleep. Thank you for my health and energy, and […]

Aug 18

Good morning, Lord! Thank you, thank you, thank you, because my Mate is only about one hour away…! I don’t even know if I will get to finish this post and publish it, before I have to leave to meet him at the nearby gas station and have him follow me back to my sister’s […]

Aug 16

Good morning, Father! I didn’t get a post in yesterday — I really need to start doing it during “free internet time” 2am to 8am, to be even more frugal with my sister’s internet. Please help me do that, Lord. Thanks!!   Lord, this is the first time that my husband has said he is […]

Aug 14

Hello, Lord! Thank you for three days in a row begun by talking to my best friend and Mate, once for almost 2 hours and yesterday for over 3 hours straight, lol. And although today was short, I got a couple new pics by email, so I am feeling more in touch with him and […]

Aug 13

Hello, Father! Thank you for healing and restoration of hope. Thank you for providing some very interesting timeframes, especially my son being in a town almost exactly halfway between myself and my husband, right along the path he must travel to get here. It will be very interesting to see what you have in store […]

Aug 12

Lord, I thank you for profound insight and new understanding! Truly those were the darkest hours before the dawn, and you faithfully delivered me through them. Thank you for giving me something solid and stable to remind myself of, when things get hard. Thank you for giving me honor through YOU, and thank you for […]

Anger (and acceptance)

Okay, Lord, I am no longer heartbroken, I am ANGRY! I am fed up with people taking me for granted, and taking advantage of my faithfulness and compassion and kindness! I feel like I have gone past my limit of endurance now, and I have had ENOUGH! It really does seem like I am the […]

Aug 11

Lord, I thank you for my health, my stamina, my growing muscles and decreasing fat reserves, lol. I thank you for my desire for fresh foods and my growing dislike for fried, greasy, or otherwise unhealthy foodstuffs. I ask you to keep teaching me how to take better care of my body, and please keep […]

Aug 10

Ouch ouch ouch. Another intense time of feeling for my Mate. I cannot save him, not from the world, not from himself. I cannot even help him, except to pray. All I can really do is just trust our Shepherd to take care of him. Jesus knows. He sees. He cares. And He is at […]
