Good morning, Father. Thank you for the awesome rejuvenating outdoor work yesterday, and thank you for providing warm clothing, even some fun and silly new hats, lol. Thank you for the health of myself and all those whom I love, and please bless my friend in New York and those in Denton, Texas. Give us […]

Lord, I have so very much to be grateful for! I have joy and peace in abundance. I have so few earthly goods that I am able to appreciate the smallest things, from a single book to a little box of my favorite tea bags. I have a husband who is an absolute delight to […]

Lord, I thank you for my health, my stamina, my growing muscles and decreasing fat reserves, lol. I thank you for my desire for fresh foods and my growing dislike for fried, greasy, or otherwise unhealthy foodstuffs. I ask you to keep teaching me how to take better care of my body, and please keep […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for getting my husband and my stepson over to visit my father-in-law and perhaps soon (or now) to my mother-in-law as well! Thank you for providing the time and circumstance for those visits, and please bless all peeps involved with peace and joy. Let the visiting be FUN and light and […]

Good morning, Father. Lord, I really don’t know where I’m at today, I am just trying my best to follow you and not try to critically analyze or overthink things. I trust you, Shepherd. You have never let me down. Thank you for your faithful care. Amen.

Lord, as you know, today is the one year anniversary of the passing of my Tiny Friend, my constant companion of 12+ years. I still miss him, but I thank you for all the healing and all the wonderful memories and lessons learned. He will never be forgotten or replaced. Thank you so much for […]

May 16

Good morning, Father. Thank you for carrying my heart through this difficult time. Thank you for providing so many little joys and comforts along the way. Please help my heart to be strong, as the enemy tries to undermine my strength from within, once again pummeling me with SHAME and making me realize just how […]

Mar 14

Good morning, Faithful One! Thank you for protecting my heart in so many ways, so that when betrayal strikes, it does not destroy me. Thank you for helping me by infusing me with your strength, not having to count on my own. Thank you for teaching me so many valuable lessons already this day that […]

Dec 5

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for your patient care. Thank you for helping me through the panic attacks this morning, for enabling me to just get up and take a shower and let you protect me. Thank you that I will not ALWAYS be helpless before my own changing hormones, that some day […]

Oct 26

Good morning, Lord. I thank you for this most awesome weather we’ve been having lately! Thank you for being with me during the night, when I really needed a friend, a companion, and someone to help me stay calm and see the bigger picture. Thank you for reminding me of all the notes I have […]

Sep 5

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the very deep, deep sleep lately. It is amazing how long and deep I’ve slept these last couple nights. I don’t know if I am fighting off something like a cold (I AM a bit stuffy), or if pushing myself to finish the next set of Spanish Trading Cards […]

Aug 14

Good morning, Father. Thank you for giving my husband time to vent while still making it short enough that my ears did not get overwhelmed. Please be with him today, and move him forward in your plan for his life. Bring him very close to you and reveal to him whatever he needs to see, […]

Aug 12

Good morning, Father. Thank you for getting me up before the sun and going for a three-mile walk! Thank you for the breeze, the pinky sunrise, the birds, and all those crazy Canadian geese! Thank you for making it so that I was back home for my husband to vent to about his work, and […]

Aug 11

Good morning, Father. I really don’t know how I am going to make it through this day — or even the next few months — but I know that the ONLY way to do it is to hang on tight to YOU! I’m tired, Lord. I want to go back to being oblivious, NOT knowing […]

Aug 10

Lord, I really feel like I can’t take any more. I give you my heart, my broken, abused heart, and ask you to keep it safe in your hands until I can make it OUT of this sad place of despair and feeling trapped and so very low. If I can just be alone, in […]

Aug 2

Hello, Father! Thank you for making me more stable, when I most need it! Thank you for giving my husband and I time to talk, and I ask that you give us time to listen to that audiobook together — soon! Please do not let the enemy steal that away, Lord. Please protect my husband’s […]

Jul 1

Good morning, Father. Thank you for this beautiful morning, giving me opportunities to serve you and to grow! I give this day to you, my Shepherd, and ask you to lead me in it. Show me what YOU desire for me to do, and help me to be humble and faithful and follow you like […]

Jun 25

Hello, God. I feel really BROKEN today. Almost lifeless, empty, stuck in something that I cannot even SEE. I give myself to you, Lord. I ask you to help me, and I KNOW that you will, because you are Faithful. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, if this is part of mourning, part of […]

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 18

Good morning, Father. In some way, I feel like I have betrayed my Tiny Friend, for I have made it past the two things that were holding me to him. I took down his outdoor pen and mowed in the front yard, and I took a shower and (what feels like) washed him all off […]
