Hello, Father, and thank you for helping me make some progress so that I feel a bit less stressed! Thank you for giving me a tiny project that I could complete in a morning, including a fun little graphic:

Lord, I am still a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, but given all circumstances and […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for sustaining me, helping me stay calm and mellow — even rather groggy, lol. Thank you for giving me patience and helping me to just let things go and not get worked up over anything, even my own little disappointments. Thank you for the cold front moving in, cooling things off, […]

Good evening, Father. I thank you so much for being my stable anchor, my root, my Rock upon which I stand. Thank you for the comfort of your Holy Spirit, and thank you for your Son who made it all possible. Thank you for giving me time off from my computer, and thank you for […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for the perfect weather, and lots of time for both work and play. Thank you for healing my knee a little bit more each day, and thank you for making it so that I do not have to stress it with excess bending or walking. Thank you for sunshine and peace […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for helping me find my way back to a more calm and peaceful state of mind today. Thank you for the lightness and hope that I feel, and thank you for the good times with my Mate and even all the time I had today to learn and to contemplate many […]

  Hello, Father! Thank you for the warmth of the little heater that is keeping us cozy in the little popup camper, which looks like this:

And thank you for keeping us safe and even giving us enough money — and an address to use — so that we could purchase a little […]

Feb 21

Okay, Father, I am appreciating your sense of humor! Thirty-some hours ago it was a balmy 70 degrees, overnight. It started raining and getting cold a few hours after that, and hasn’t stopped. This morning the canvas on the little popup camper was already so waterlogged that there were tiny rivulets forming on the INSIDE, […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for the nice hot shower, and thank you for this friendly laundromat with free wifi! Thank you for getting my daughter settled into her new life, safe from harm and any stagnancy! And thank you most of all for the peaceful lakeside campsite, the popup camper, and the wildlife and BBQs […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for this brief time of internet access, and thank you for the amazing closeness and growth between my Mate and myself these last couple days. Please intervene in our situation, give us patience, wisdom, and courage to know and do your will. We do not know where we will be […]

Hello, Lord. Thank you for the many opportunities today to show mercy and compassion to others, and thank you for the chance to help my mother-in-law prepare her new house for holiday guests. Thank you for all the humbling learning experiences I have had lately, and thank you for helping me to not get as […]

Thank you, Lord for such an awesome visit with my son, and thank you for getting us safely back to Texas. Thank you for making me so flexible in mind and body, and please help me sleep well enough in the cab of the truck tonight with my Mate. Thank you for not only peace […]

Nov 19

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the extra two days with my sister and with my Mate, and even the time we had with our new good friend — one of your sons and Little Ones — here in Iowa! Thank you for all the Little Things you have provided to nurture and support us […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the good time with my sister yesterday, exploring your creation all around this part of the country. I am so impressed with the awesome variety of this landscape, Lord! I didn’t take a single video or stillshot, but I really don’t think either one could convey the awesomeness of […]

Oct 19

Good morning, Father! Thank you for providing your Word and your Spirit, both of which help us make it through this life, growing and becoming more like you, more aligned to your way and your truth and your will! It is awesome how you continue to give me new little plumblines (new to ME), concepts […]

Oct 14

Good morning, Father. Thank you for healing and growth, and thank you for even the in-between days when not much seems to happen, but there is still peace and not-always-so-obvious progress. I am grateful to live in this age of technology, with all its myriad ways of learning and sharing, but I do wish that […]

Oct 2

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your awesome care, guiding us forward each day. Thank you for an entire day of fellowship, analyzation, and mental processing with my Mate, with just the right amount of time spent with my sister and brother so as not to completely overwhelm them with our hyperactivity, lol. Lord, I […]

Sep 22

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the beauty of healing and restoration of peace and joy! Thank you for helping me get some sleep at last, and thank you for the productive day yesterday, even allowing us to minister to a stranger for a couple hours, and meet several new people as well. Thank you […]

Sep 19

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!

My brothers and […]

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, […]
