Thank you, Lord, for good people in my life. Thank you for freedom — body, mind, and spirit. Thank you that I am not addicted to any substance, but please help me to be patient and kind to everyone who IS addicted to something. Thank you for beautiful people like Vivian who do their best […]

Good morning, Father! Yay! This morning it feels like there is a bit of a breakthrough, and I am excited for change and the future! It is only 3 1/2 weeks until my awesome Mate’s momentous 50th birthday, and I feel pretty certain that he will be here by then. I am already starting to […]

Good morning, Father. Lord, this morning my heart is heavy. It is early on Sunday morning and I do NOT want to go to my sister’s church today. I have gone there more times in the last few months than I have been to a church in the last 2 decades combined, yet my “attendance” […]

Jul 26

Good morning, Father! I think it is kinda kooky how I keep being wide awake at 2am, and sometimes have so much energy for so long that I wonder if I will ever sleep “normally” again! But you just keep on taking care of me, Lord, so I just keep on chuggin’ along, making new […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for your awesome daily care, your encouragement and strengthening of my body and spirit. Thank you for peace, and thank you so much for all the interactions within my family this week! Thank you for giving me an awesome Mate who can be a strong male role model and encourage […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for this absolutely beautiful weather we are having here in Iowa lately!! It is so nice to experience a “normal” summer instead of the blasting heat of Texas! Please continue to shower your mercy upon my Mate who IS still in the Texas heat, and please help him finish up […]

Jul 21

Thank you, Father, for blessing my socks off soooooo much in the last 24+ hours!! Yesterday morning I was JUST going to go out and take a little film of how much our little potted garden has grown… and thanks to your miraculous mercy and “creating with the Creator”, I have TWO extraordinary Thor’s Woods […]

Jul 20

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping us sort out some of the internet problem, so that I could get back online and do my work. Thank you for this extremely busy week that seems like at least twice as long as it has actually been. Thank you for the fourteen or so hours that […]

Jul 16

Father, this morning I am very grateful that the Spirit can pray for me, because I don’t know what to ask for, what to speak on behalf of myself, my beloved ones, or our situations. Last night I found that something has drained several GB of internet allowance over a few hours — for at […]

Jul 15

Lord, I thank you for encouraging me, helping me to get one “major” and three “minor” videos finished last night/this morning, and post them all to Facebook and YouTube, so that I really feel like I AM capable of making progress, of finishing projects! 🙂 Thank you also, for allowing me time to be in […]

Jul 14

Ugh, Lord, I am sooooo frustrated!! It was delightful to wander around taking photos and vids in patina paradise today, and to talk to all the awesome peeps, and to be of help and service to the community and the church, but I want so bad to get ON with my “homeless nomad” lifestyle WITH […]

Jul 13

Lord, please help all the peeps who are obsessed with or intimidated by the number 13 today. Please also give a special hug to my nephew, whose birthday is today. I no longer have a way to contact him and wish him a happy birthday, since he has left Facebook. My heart goes out to […]

Jul 12

Hello, Father. I am sorry I have been ignoring this little blog for the last few days. It is funny — I still have a tab open from two days ago, where I was gathering pics of barracudas, and stopped halfway down the page after gathering 57 pics. I still want to continue, but I […]

Jul 9

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for these last couple days, blessed with family and closeness — and more video production! Taking an inventory (so I can snicker at it in years to come, lol), I now have released a total of 17 videos to YouTube (some of which are private, not public — […]

Jul 7

Hello, Father! Well, today my earthly father would be 88 years old, if he were still alive. Alas it has been close to ten years since he died — on MY birthday… and exactly 41 years since HIS father died on HIS birthday — 7-7-77 — how crazy is THAT?! Lord, you sure have a […]

Jul 5

Hello, Father. Lord, I am feeling a bit discouraged. I keep being told this situation is pretty hopeless, but I know that is without YOUR intervention. Yes, perhaps man cannot accomplish this task, but God can, even by using mankind. For you ARE the mover of men’s hearts, Oh Lord. I will just do my […]

Jul 3

Lord, my heart is heavy, and you know why. I am asking you to just let me escape to the library today and focus on my work. I have done all I can do about the other thing, especially since tomorrow is a holiday. Father, I take my vulnerable little heart and put it safely […]

Jul 1

Good morning, Father! Thank you for this brand-new month, full of fresh days and new opportunities to serve you! Thank you for helping me through an entire month of being apart from my beloved Mate, going on TWO months now! I miss him, Lord. Please intervene in his situation in Texas, help him accomplish all […]
