Good morning, Lord. I am grateful there are hard days like yesterday, so that I can better appreciate the simpler, less complicated days. Thank you for protecting me while I am weak, and please help me to remember how strong I am in you, and how FREE!

Good morning, Father! I thank you for this beautiful day, another chance to live close to you and learn more about you, about myself, about your people, about your creation. I thank you for peace and joy and the mental and physical energy to accomplish many things each day — even if it is never […]

Sep 8

Hahahaha. Just after two o’clock in the morning, staring at my reflection in the mirror, fixin’ to put in my contacts and start the day. Moments ago, I struggled out of bed, grateful that I listened to the prompting of the Spirit once again and laid myself down to sleep about eight in the evening, […]

Good morning, Lord. I still don’t feel so great, but I am GRATEful, lol. I thank you for my Mate, who also is feeling a bit “under the weather”. I pray that you make our BBQ today go well despite our low energy and achy bodies. I pray that you give each of my loved […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for healing and recovery and growth, Lord God. Thank you for teaching me, more all the time, how to just be myself and not struggle to try to make things happen, to make myself heard or understood, or even to understand things or make sense of them for my own comfort. […]

Lord, I thank you for placing my best friend, Mate, and husband upon this earth 49 years ago today! Thank you for giving me a choice, so that I could choose him above all others, for he is truly my favorite of all your creations, and I enjoy him more even than trees and mushrooms […]

Lord I thank you for the cooler weather today. Thank you for creativity and art. Thank you for my love of learning and my appreciation for words and for people. Please strengthen my heart and help me to be strong and keep looking to you. Amen.

Hello, Lord. Thank you for touching me, healing me, growing me. Thank you for resisting my pleas to come Home, so that I can continue to serve you in the days ahead. Please help me to find joy again, to see beyond the difficulties of life. Thank you for the written word, and thank you […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for hope, of the kind that is independent of circumstances. Thank you for fellowship with your Spirit, something I have enjoyed since I was such a small child who had more connection with nature and its Creator than with people and their world which seemed so cruel and dirty. Thank you […]

May 27

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the peace and calm I have this morning, feeling much better, more hopeful and less stressed. It does suck that people and their bogus treatment cause way, way more stress than having no electricity, no real home, and very little food we can eat without heating capabilites. I am […]

May 26

Lord, it is hot, almost 100 degrees. I thought we would be out of Texas weeks ago. Help me to not get too irritable, and to just stay light and supportive and sensitive to all my husband’s needs, and less sensitive to my own. Thank you for helping me get a full night of sleep, […]

May 7

Hello, Lord! Thank you for the awesome day yesterday, even though I did get rather stressed at the sluggish internet connection I had, which may have helped me detach even more from this place, LOL. I will be very grateful to not have to pay for such unreliable internet service as we have here, but […]

Hello, Father! Today I am celebrating one full year without a working vehicle, because one year ago today the inspection/registration ran out on my car, and I refused to have it pass inspection by illegal means, still knowing I could not afford to have it repaired enough to pass legally. That same car still sits […]

Mar 13

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, […]

Feb 17

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 […]

Feb 12

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 […]

Feb 1

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 […]

Jan 12

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, […]

Jan 3

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, […]
