Good morning, Father! Thank you for the ups and downs of life, which teach me so very much about myself, my Mate, my Lord, His creation, and all the awesome peeps I get to meet and interact with! Thank you for the opportunities to serve, and all the projects I get to work on. Please […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for helping me get up and going early this morning so I can use the “free internet time” before 8am — especially since the library’s internet crapped out on us almost immediately yesterday, AND the changes I’m trying to make on the OMP site are much more complicated than I […]

Hello, Lord! I cannot believe how FAST the time is dissipating lately!! THANK YOU for helping me to get firmly settled into the new camper, and my new office space inside it.

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the five-fold blessing of my awesome Mate and four children, Lord.

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for helping me get a good early start to my day again, a few days in a row — but this time even better! Perhaps I will actually get some time to work on my favorite little pet project today, although I AM far behind schedule on more serious work […]

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 […]

Lord, I feel weary and my head is hurting again. I thank you for blessing me with peace and nice weather, a safe place to sleep, and even electricity and decent food. I lift all four of my children up to you and ask you to bless each one with a personal relationship with you […]

Oh my, I almost forgot to post AGAIN!! LOL. 😆 Thank you, Father, for these last couple very busy days, a good balance between spending time with my Mate and working on art and other projects. I adore this little snapshot of today, complete with Texas flag Durango boots and my sleeping Mate in the […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the loving compassion shown to me yesterday when I really needed it, and thank you for helping me “bounce back” and not linger too long in that state of mind. Thank you also for the ability to have FUN with my Mate, wherever we are, whatever the time of […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you, Father, for the awesome family day, all day yesterday from the end of my internet time, all the way through to bed at night.

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for helping me with my sore neck, and please continue to show me how to manage my dizziness. Thank you for helping me be strong enough to walk to Walmart and carry back 4 bags of groceries for the family. I don’t feel so very lively this morning, so I […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the crazy snow yesterday, and for keeping my family warm and safe. Thank you for the HOPE that is 70 degree weather coming back in a few days! Thank you for giving us just enough food to make it, while it is so cold and hard to walk to […]

Hello, Father! Thank you so much for how smoothly all the Thanksgiving preparations have gone so far, Lord. Thank you for getting my husband’s truck home safely, parked in the driveway alongside my own non-working vehicle. Please guide my husband what to do for transportation — open the right doors and close the right doors, […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for helping me through the shot and the stomach pains yesterday, and helping my husband through his looooong day!

Hello, Lord! It seems strange to be writing this so late in the day. Thank you for blessing us so much: awesome times with my husband last night and this morning, plus peaceful and productive time at the horse place with my daughter today. Please help me to get a little time alone, so I […]
