Good morning, Father! It is so very nice to have internet and time to write again, after about a week without!! I do not know why my phone’s mobile data is no longer working, but if it be your will, I ask you to show me how to fix it (again), so I can be […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for a nice shower, some good time with my Mate, and lots of good times with his family. Thank you for giving my daughter a new direction in life, and thank you for helping me be patient in my own work and growth. Father, I thank you for awareness, for sensitivity […]

Lord, I thank you for the measure of hope you have given me this morning. Thank you for visible progress in some areas, and thank you for providing me with a break in the most painful area. Please help my heart recover and gain some lightness and joy before I meet the rest of my […]

Hello, Father. You see my heart, my tears, my sorrows, my struggles. They don’t seem very important to anyone, they just hurt. No matter how freely or cheerfully I give to others, there always seems to be a desperate need for me to run to you for comfort and encouragement. I guess that’s the way […]

Lord, you see my fears, my hopes, my vulnerabilities. You see what I am facing today, and I thank you for what you have already lead me through. I know I can trust you, and that you are truly the only thing I need to be safe, and fulfilled, and joyous. I thank you for […]

Thank you, Father, for another opportunity to spend a day at the library, and thank you for helping me concentrate and finally finish a task that I have been working on at various times over the past few months! Now, I fear there are new obstacles and frustrations and hangups, but I trust that you […]

Lord, I gotta admit, these lessons I am learning lately are pretty intense, and I am not even sure I understand much of any of it. When I think I see something clearly, it seems that a contradiction occurs and I am back to simply not knowing, feeling lost. I thank you that you are […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you, Lord, for helping me through that rather tortuous day, and thank you for counseling me in my bed this morning before I got up, leading me into a healthy mindset and focus for this day. Please help me to stay faithful to your leading, and not be blown off course […]

Dec 15

Lord, I feel so raw, so physically sick, so emotionally wounded. It is hard to have much hope today. Things feel very dark and harsh, and your Love and kindness feel too far away in the future to be of much encouragement right now. Thank you, though, for reminding me over and over that I […]

Hello, Lord. Thank you for the many opportunities today to show mercy and compassion to others, and thank you for the chance to help my mother-in-law prepare her new house for holiday guests. Thank you for all the humbling learning experiences I have had lately, and thank you for helping me to not get as […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for almost two full years on this blog, the first year without a single missed day, the second not quite that perfect, lol. Stll, despite missed days, I really think I have grown more these last two years than during any other time period of my life thus far, and […]

Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for this awesome time at the LIBRARY!! I am excited to have several hours to devote to my own work and learning privileges again — WOOT! Father, I give you my time, my mind, my hands, my heart. Please guide me in how to pace myself and to […]

Hello, Father! Thank you so much for the healing and growth and encouragement this day. Thank you for helping me sleep for nine hours pretty straight right through the coldest night, down into the low twenties, sleeping in the popup camper. Thank you for helping me prepare with layers of clothing and blankets and hoodie […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for being near me, guiding me through each step of each day. Thank you for tender moments shared with your Spirit, sometimes with my Mate as well. Thank you for challenges and growth, and opportunities to serve you and your people. Father, please help us through the next couple days with […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me through these days of up and down emotions and levels of exhaustion and feeling LOST. Thank you for joyful moments with my Mate, and thank you for helping me LET GO of moments that have not been so joyful. Thank you for helping me make it through […]
