Good morning, Father. Thank you for the progress made yesterday, despite the mild case of food poisoning. Thank you for helping me feel so much better this morning, and please help my Mate continue to feel better throughout the day today. Thank you for our heaters and insulation in our little camper, so that this […]

Hello, Father! Okay, I am firmly back into nerd land, lol! I cannot seem to stop LEARNING, and building my understanding of so many different things at once, from history, religion, and anthropology to acoustics, engine technology, and materials science! There just doesn’t seem to be any limit to my interests and ability to LEARN! […]

Romans 14:17-23 ERV

In God’s kingdom, what we eat and drink is not important. Here is what is important: a right way of life, peace, and joyβ€”all from the Holy Spirit. Whoever serves Christ by living this way is pleasing God, and they will be accepted by others. So let’s try as hard as we […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for a good night of sleep, and thank you that it is decently warm this morning, with the promise of sunshine today. Please help me follow you this day, please guide me in how to spend my time, and please help me be humble and teachable and willing to serve. […]

Feb 23

Hello, Father. Thank you for good sleep and good relaxation time, actually taking some time OFF and enjoying some entertainment outside of the daily amusement my Mate provides, lol. I can see how binge-watching a favored series could be addicting, but I am already eager to CREATE something, rather than just being entertained by something […]

Feb 21

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the peace that pervades all this morning. Thank you for the humid, semi-warm air with overcast skies that may threaten our barbeque later today but right now just seems absolutely lovely! Thank you for the cat nestled against my hide, and the cedar waxwings whistling their feeding sounds in […]

Feb 19

Good morning, Father. I need to kinda cling to you for support right now again, staying close to HOME for help, lol. Noises are overwhelming me, echoing loudly, rattling my sore brain, and I feel a bit vulnerable, like I am standing on a precipice. I am trusting you to help me be strong enough […]

Feb 18

Good morning, Father. Thank you for all the small triumphs and all the learning opportunities in the past several days. Thank you for closeness and silliness and adventure with my Mate, and thank you for the awesomeness of the ability to slip off into the woods by myself at any time of any day, to […]

Feb 17

Good morning, Father. Once again, I feel like a wounded soldier, making my way HOME to my Creator, my King, my Shepherd — for healing and sustenance. THANK YOU for teaching me, over and over, that you are ALL that I need. Please give me patience with the process of letting GO of my foolish […]

Feb 16

Hello, Father. Thank you for bringing me through that difficult day, to safely emerge on the other side of it, stronger! πŸ™‚ Thank you for growth and change and variability, heehee. Thank you for variety, even while certain stability and SAMENESS remain. Thank you for HOPE, and thank you for JOY that surpasses all understanding. […]

Lord, sometimes I really resent having emotions. I know you CHOSE to have them yourself, AND they are also just part of being human, but it can be VERY frustrating and discouraging to pick myself up over and over, ten times in a morning, and just keep getting knocked back down or just flat-out pissed […]

Feb 14

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me move slowly through that stomach-flu day yesterday! Thank you for the patience of my Mate and the provision of my Lord, making sure I had enough crackers to eat… and not much else, lol. I thank you that although I don’t feel quite like myself this morning, […]

Feb 12

Good morning, Father. Thank you so much for the awesome HSL color project I’m working on, and my enthusiasm for it! That is really keeping me from breaking under the negative pressures surrounding me right now. Thank you for the encouragement and reassurance I receive from your Spirit, helping me keep going forward and never […]

Feb 11

Good morning, Lord! It is so cool to wake up early and get right to work on my favorite “pet” project, heehee! Please do help me to stop and take breaks and exercise and work on OTHER projects as well, Lord. THANK YOU that I have been doing well so far, still giving lots of […]

Feb 10

Good morning, Father! THANK YOU for leading me to a project that I can work on for hours every day, totally exhausting myself… and wake back up the next morning craving to do MORE!! THANK YOU for preserving me a little niche in this world, in this modern age of technology and digital-everything! THANK YOU […]

Feb 8

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the fun times hanging out with my Mate yesterday evening, and all the awesome time I spent learning and playing with the mathematics of COLOR before and after that — and already this morning, heehee! Thank you for giving me a FUN and intuitive and transferable way to manipulate […]

Feb 6

Oh my, Lord, you have created me to be SUCH a Nerd!! LOL, yesterday when I was watching one of my Great Courses, I saw a chart showing the relationships between the sequencing of different codons in DNA — relative to all the different amino acids (protein building blocks) — and I was THRILLED to […]

Feb 5

Lord, I don’t think I can be much more content than I am right now, heehee. πŸ˜€ Outside of being broke and needing contact lenses, everything seems to be awesome — the weather, progress in my work, all my relationships… and mostly my health (just minor complaints). I LOVE having my Mate nearby, working outdoors […]

Feb 4

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the good time with extended family last night, hanging out with my Mate’s “baby mama” and her two other children. Thank you that I feel absolutely no competition with her — probably less than any other female, in fact. Strange. But totally cool! πŸ˜€ Thank you that I sincerely […]

Feb 3

Hello, Father! Wow, I’ve been doing so much today, that I almost forgot I didn’t post here this morning, lol! THANK YOU for such a lovely warm day, Lord!! I hear from several people that it is unusually warm all across the nation today. Here, it was a delightful breezy warm morning for exploring the […]
