May 21

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your closeness, your intimate guidance, step-by-step through each of my days. Thank you for the mirrors yesterday, helping me see myself through others’ eyes, even though I do feel a little bit embarrased at being so very different, not quite fitting in this world, definitely too spiritually sensitive, or […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for your Touch, for the awesomeness of your comfort, your encouragement… and the promise of growth, through your mercy and intervention. Thank you for giving me an awesome Mate and children, even though I am far away from them at this time. Please be with my youngest son who is […]

Lord, I honestly feel like I do not DO enough to “earn my keep” — to be allowed to keep living in this world, especially here at my sister’s peaceful nature retreat. Besides that, I feel kinda lost. Yesterday was intense (but disappointing) outdoor yardwork and end-of-internet-cycle day, and today is a rainy Sabbath with […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the good exercise I’ve been getting, and thank you so much for holding my knee together so that I CAN work outside doing the mowing and hauling of brush and such! Please help me to keep working for you, helping my sister while building the strength and health of […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for being near me, encouraging me, giving me CALM. I thank you that no matter what, you are ENOUGH. I need nothing else at all. Still, Lord, I ask you for your continued mercy, upon myself and my Mate and my children and my other dearest loved ones. Sustain us, […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me be awake and strong enough — physically and mentally — to have had a good time with the family yesterday. It was delightful to spend so much time and energy in playing with the four youngest children, to see their different personalities, and to encourage each one […]

May 12

Hello, Father. I’m feeling a little exhausted. Please help me make it through this day with all the family over, all the chatting and catching up. I don’t feel up to it, guess I haven’t had adequate “introvert time” nor adequate sleep lately. But I am so very grateful that my knee is doing better […]

Today I am skipping my prayers and verses and instead posting something different… ————————-   May 8, 2018 – on the bus ride to my sister’s:

Sometimes I think my heart is just toooooo sensitive for me to be livin’ in this world.

I see a young woman struggling, hear her story, pray for her […]

Good morning, Lord! WOOT! It is beautiful to be back up north again, spending time with my sister and enjoying the nature here! Thank you for giving me a chance to see spring wildflowers in at least two different states this year — how awesome!! I got to see the whole procession of spring flowers […]

May 7

Good morning, Father. Well, you will have to sustain me as the only Husband with me for a little time again. Within 12 to 26 hours I will be getting on a bus and leaving my heart behind in Texas. Back to my sister’s in Iowa I go. I trust you with my Mate, Lord. […]

May 5

Hello, Father. I am starting to get that panicky feeling again, a little bit more often now, so it must be getting close to time to relocate to a new place. For which I am glad, because it is getting HOT in Texas, which makes me want to cry and give up. I sooooo much […]

May 3

Hello, Father. Thank you for blessed relief, no matter how temporary. Thank you for giving me a characteristically positive outlook, so that my “norm” is optimism and only rare days are depressing. Thank you for making me simple, yet with a vast array of interests, so that I am perpetually interested in something, except during […]

May 1

Okay, Father, I suppose I am feeling a little better now, thank you. I still feel a lot of shame and general emotional turmoil, and there is still my greatest fear looming over my head, causing me to question all things in my future, but at least my clothes are clean and I have gotten […]
