Good morning, Father. Thank you for taking care of ALL things, Lord. Thank you for giving me some very vivid imaginationings (heehee, I like to make up my own lil words) of MY special lap drums which I daydreamed during the church music yesterday. The hippie chick in me can sooooooo just sit and pad […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for a fresh new day, and some good sleep at last! Thank you for my awesome Mate and our closeness… AND our new little home that he is cleaning and fixing up for us to come back to Texas to live in together in a couple months! Please watch over […]

Jul 22

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 […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your awesome closeness, tenderly leading me through each day. It is such a miraculous honor to know you, and to be known of you! I have done nothing to deserve your love and the companionship of your Holy Spirit, yet in your mercy you Touch me, Heal me, Feed […]

May 30

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the beautiful rain yesterday and already this morning. Thank you for the lovely and productive walk in woods and field between the rains as well, with so many awesome shots of wet foliage — and the dog fetching his ball endlessly, lol. I now have so much footage of […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for this awesome day, and all the fun and closeness with my Mate. Thank you for giving us the pair of scissortail flycatchers to admire while they were hunting in the field in front of our truck. Thank you for the chance to hear a tiny bit about how my daughter […]

Apr 16

Good morning, Father. Thank you so much for all that you have blessed me with, especially your presence in my life, letting me know you are there and you care. Thank you for my Mate and my children, and please continue to nurture and grow each one of them, faithful Shepherd. Thank you for the […]

Hello, Lord! Thank you for encouraging me with fresh ideas and helpful apps! Thank you for healing my knee more and more every day, so that today I am spending more time without the wrap on it than with it all wrapped up — AND I am doing gentle little exercises to strengthen it again […]

Feb 22

  Hello, Father! Thank you for the warmth of the little heater that is keeping us cozy in the little popup camper, which looks like this:

And thank you for keeping us safe and even giving us enough money — and an address to use — so that we could purchase a little […]

Nov 19

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 […]

Sep 22

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 […]
