Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the extra two days with my sister and with my Mate, and even the time we had with our new good friend — one of your sons and Little Ones — here in Iowa! Thank you for all the Little Things you have provided to nurture and support us […]

Oct 2

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your awesome care, guiding us forward each day. Thank you for an entire day of fellowship, analyzation, and mental processing with my Mate, with just the right amount of time spent with my sister and brother so as not to completely overwhelm them with our hyperactivity, lol. Lord, I […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the beauty of healing and restoration of peace and joy! Thank you for helping me get some sleep at last, and thank you for the productive day yesterday, even allowing us to minister to a stranger for a couple hours, and meet several new people as well. Thank you […]

May 22

Hello, Lord! Thank you so, so, so much for the awesome loving family that has helped us out these past couple days, and thank you for causing the repairs to Mr. D. to be finished early enough that I could still take a hot shower and cook one last meal before our electricity is turned […]

Dec 29

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for all the encouragement in my work lately! I am LOVING how it is just flowing along: writing, writing, writing — and slowly learning to use Adobe Illustrator CC — the industry standard in desktop publishing. That ought to come in handy! 🙂 But even more so, Lord, […]

Dec 26

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the awesome, delightful, most perfect weather yesterday! I felt like I was HOME, in Michigan — it even SMELLED good! So peaceful, so comforting, to have it 70 degrees and humid! With the front door wide open and fresh air pouring in the windows, I felt blessed beyond measure! […]

Dec 23

Lord, I thank you for the good rest, even though I have been having so much trouble actually sleeping, letting go, being unconscious, lately. 🙁 Father, please heal my Little Ones and their fears, as I truly do not know how to help my own self in that way. My everyday adult working self seems […]

Dec 2

Good morning, Father! Thank you for all the awesome walks lately — six walks in 3 days and over 5 1/2 miles yesterday alone! WOOT! I feel good, knowing I have made good use of the sunshine and the last part of the warm weather this season. Thank you for helping me use the weather […]

Nov 25

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the gift of having 3 of my 4 children here in my home with me, and having time to talk to the fourth on the phone yesterday! Thank you for giving us a peaceful Thanksgiving Day, and thank you for keeping us all safe and in good […]

Nov 14

Hello, Lord! How strange it is to have already gone for TWO walks today, and it is just barely past noon! Haha, I am very grateful to live within a mile of Walmart and the post office — even if they are in different directions! So even if I do not have a car to […]

Nov 11

Good morning, Lord! OOOOOOh, I am excited because my youngest son has texted me and wants to visit for Thanksgiving!! Due to my car situation, I have not seen him since he graduated boot camp last summer…! AND I haven’t seen my oldest son since a few months before that, even! So Lord, I am […]

Nov 10

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for your tender mercies! For enveloping me in warmth and comfort this morning, for telling me when it was time to get up, for showing me how to keep warm in the house with no heat, and even for showing me how to solve an urgent situation with […]

Nov 3

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the work I’ve already accomplished today, and thank you for helping me find my daughter’s glasses QUICK, so she didn’t have to be without them all day! Please provide enough money for both my daughter and myself to finally go to the eye doctor after 2 years without eye […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for removing all traces of the curse of this “holiday” from me. Thank you for safety and joy and peace and awareness of all the little things I have to be grateful for. Thank you for the health of my family and my own self, and thank you for your […]

Sep 25

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the chance to visit my son again today, and please guide me in the best time to go, to catch a break from this storm. Father, I thank you for the deep, powerful sleeps I’ve been having lately, and please heal my body and help me know how to […]

Jun 23

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the fun time I had last night, making my crazy art — even though I stayed up later than I had planned. Thank you for the freedom I’m starting to feel more frequently, and thank you for the courage to create, to not try to conform to some ideal […]

Jun 20

Good morning, Father. Thank you for being near me, directing me, showing me that I am not to add things to myself, but allow you to do so. If I pick something up and expect myself to carry it, I may fall or just not be able to carry the things YOU want me to. […]

Jun 12

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for your awesome mercy, Father! Thank you for forgiveness, for understanding, for patience, for encouragement, for direction! Thank you for choosing me, and never leaving me alone and lost. Thank you for reaching out to me, even when I am certain I do not deserve it. Thank you for teaching […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for taking care of myself and my family! Please be with my friend in New York and help her have a good weekend. Show her how much you love and care for her, comfort and protect her, mighty Shepherd! Thank you for being with my oldest son, helping him make […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for encouraging me, and thank you so much for the awesome visit with my son the last couple days.
