Good morning, Lord. Thank you for letting me hear from my youngest son last night, cuz the best “mother’s day” gift I can receive is to know that my children are safe and pretty happy. Thank you for helping me in my work, guiding me how to make all the infinitismally small adjustments to design […]

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 […]

Lord, I don’t think I can be much more content than I am right now, heehee. 😀 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 2

Good morning, Father. Weirdness. I am constantly oscillating between awesome contentment and scratchy irritation. I feel joyous… with an undertone of angst. Peace and frustration seem to be occupying the same space. What a strange morning! Oh, well. As always, I just give it all to you, faithful Shepherd. Thank you for all the progress […]

Thank you, Father, for this fresh new day in which to serve you and grow and learn and accomplish whatever YOU would have me to do. Please help me to feed my body well today and get plenty of exercise, help my knee that was acting up a bit yesterday… and I THANK YOU that […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for total peace, and even a cozy feeling that I have absolutely everything that I could possibly need — or even want!! Even the weather is awesome today, with a light rain and a perfect 70-ish temperature. 🙂 Thank you for giving me a wide variety of projects to work […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the amazing peace and even delightful JOY I have, despite having all our money stolen and our dream home smashed and burned. It is truly amazing, the level of positivity I still have despite all that and various other negatives in my life at this moment, in my business […]

Lord, you see every inch of this struggle I am living through. You know its history as well as its future. You know how deeply I am hurt, how alone and nearly hopeless in this one thing at this moment. Still, I believe in the healing power of your wings, Lord. I believe in the […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for this nice hot soup on my sore throat. Thank you for the warmth in the house today, and for the increasing temperature outside — up to 70+ degrees again tomorrow, they say! Yay! I only wish I could feel better that quick, so I could go for a long walk […]

Oct 16

Good morning, Father! It is nice to be up and going, going, going long before sunrise, two days in a row! I didn’t even need to TRY to get up early, because you are so faithful and prodded me to do so. How cool is that?! Already got some work done, already went for a […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for humbling me, helping me to see how very little I need in order to be content. It seems all I REALLY need is you, and perhaps some quiet time to sit with you and gather strength. I am grateful that I am not dependent upon very many luxuries of […]

Aug 13

Good morning, Father. Thank you for this little bit of cooler weather we are having, along with some rain! I am really looking forward to moving back north some day, if your will allows it, and growing a garden — a real garden that doesn’t have to shut down for most of summer in the […]

Jul 31

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for all the joy and hope you have placed in my heart, the excitement of knowing that YOU are in control and watching over me, guiding my path. Thank you for your awesome mercy, Lord, for I certainly do not deserve such loving care. Thank you for redemption, […]

Apr 26

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for the wonderful joy in my heart this morning! I can think of a dozen or more reasons to be upset, and my husband is super-upset and being very negative and angry, but yet I feel such bubbling joy! And it’s all because of YOU, Lord! I look […]

Mar 31

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the delightful, timely surprise of money borrowed from kindhearted people who love you! I am so much relieved to know that we will not be kicked out of our home and that my daughter can continue going to school, graduating here in two months’ time. Thank you […]
