Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for helping me through that pretty rough day yesterday!! My mind and body were both rather distraught, and even when I went to bed I still felt pretty lousy. But you rescued me all night long, every barely-awake moment reminding me to be thankful to you for something, […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for these last two extremely productive days, and thank you for giving me work to do to keep me sane and hopeful! Thank you for waking me up today with a fire under my feet, motivated to put up a Craigslist ad and notices on Facebook, to try to basically […]

Feb 14

Good morning, Father. I thank you that life is full of ups and downs, so that when we have down times, we can feel pretty certain that they will not last. I thank you for teaching me about yourself and your own struggles, and I ask you to help my heart and mind and body […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for all your patience with us crazy humans and all our problems. Thank you for having an interest in us, even as individuals! Thank you for the deer in the forest that I know are still there, waiting to be encountered some day when I make it back to the […]

Good morning, Father. I thank you, Lord, that you are ENOUGH to sustain me — no matter what is going on around me, no matter what is going on, inside me. Thank you for holding me up, keeping me going, giving me strength to pour out to others even when I feel like I have […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the awesome warm weather lately – 80 degrees yesterday, in January!! And now it is already 69 degrees, while I sit on the porch, typing on my phone and listening to birds sing and the distant train rumble. Father, you see that my computer is on the fritz again, […]

Good morning, Father. Lord, I ask you to please be near your people as they return to work and their everyday lives, after the holidays and winter break. Teach them how to “Fight off the Post-Vacation Blues“! Thank you, Lord, for teaching me how to enjoy the Little Things, the tiny pleasures of warm water, […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the strength and positive attitude I’ve had these last couple days while surrounded by much despair. This morning, it feels like it is cascading in on my heart, threatening to suffocate me. But you are my breath, Lord, and I trust you to sustain me. Please help me to […]

Good morning, Father. Well, it was definitely the gratitude yesterday that helped so much, not just the fresh air and exercise. I know this for certain because once again I had a struggle last night, woke up grumpy and down on myself. But I did even a little more exercise than yesterday, and went for […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for reminding me to be thankful this morning as I started my day! Wow, that REALLY makes a difference!!

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for helping me get a good night’s sleep and yet already getting some work done, so I feel motivated. Lord, please help me to be patient and kind and merciful and loving. Help me to stay healthy and not fall any further into this feeling of sickness. Help me to […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the awesome insights into the power of appreciation! It seems like a verification of what I learned recently about how to be prepared for anything — that all you need is to pray and be thankful! And it reminds me of so many verses I’ve read that reiterate some […]

Oct 18

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for this most awesome start to my day – time with the hubby, warmup exercise at home, then a 50-minute walk to the post office and back, passing up a few hundred cars stuck in the local traffic jam (and thus having ample opportunity for gratitude!!!). Thank you for my […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for giving me a bit of time with my husband in the early morning today, and thank you for helping his body fight off the sick he was getting. Please help me be patient today, Lord, for I feel like I’ve taken a step backwards with the hormones and am […]

Oct 12

Good morning, Father. I feel crampy and crabby this morning, quite uncomfortable, with the hormone thing again. But I trust you, Lord. I know you will get me through this difficulty, and you will keep me stable and sane. Please help me do my work and not be too distracted today, Lord. I thank you […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you so much for the fellowship time with my husband, and for helping him become more experienced at work so that it is finally becoming easier for him.

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for this awesome beautiful day, and for all this nice warm weather we’re having lately!
