Thank you, Father, for more breakthroughs and more growth! Thank you for giving me opportunities to practice some of the new concepts you have been teaching me, and although I behaved FAR from perfect, it was awesome just how calm, easygoing, and QUIET I could be, while still remaining free and light and very, very […]

Good morning, Father. Once again, I feel like a wounded soldier, making my way HOME to my Creator, my King, my Shepherd — for healing and sustenance. THANK YOU for teaching me, over and over, that you are ALL that I need. Please give me patience with the process of letting GO of my foolish […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for a good night of sleep and a good, HOT shower yesterday! Thank you for waking me up with a clear idea of what I need to work on today for the BackAcreRVPark.com website — even if I haven’t been able to quite start on it yet, lol. Lord, I […]

Lord, I am really battling the shame monster this morning. Feel like everything I am, everything I do, is bad, wrong. The things I haven’t done creep up and bite me, drawing attention to projects I started and ignored. I wish there were two of me — I could really use some Fran nurturing right […]

Jan 16

Good morning, Father! Thank you for such a full and productive work day yesterday, basically nonstop from 6am until after 1am this morning! And silly me, I’m back to work at 7am this morning, lol. Lord, please help me stay balanced, help me take breaks, help me to avoid burnout and the negative outlook that […]

Ok, Lord, I am fixin’ to pack up my Lenny laptop for at least several days, up to a week or two — depends on how long it takes my Mate to unbury my table in the camper, lol. BUT, I can still post from my phone… IF I have wifi/internet… Lord, please strengthen our […]

Hello, Lord. I am feeling a little sorry for myself this morning, I must admit. I think it is mostly this disheartening COLD and WET blanketing Iowa for the last weeks or so. THANK YOU that next week is supposed to be sunnier and a little warmer!! Until then, Lord, please help me to just […]

Jul 5

Hello, Father. Lord, I am feeling a bit discouraged. I keep being told this situation is pretty hopeless, but I know that is without YOUR intervention. Yes, perhaps man cannot accomplish this task, but God can, even by using mankind. For you ARE the mover of men’s hearts, Oh Lord. I will just do my […]

Lord, my heart is heavy, and you know why. I am asking you to just let me escape to the library today and focus on my work. I have done all I can do about the other thing, especially since tomorrow is a holiday. Father, I take my vulnerable little heart and put it safely […]

May 7

Good morning, Father. Well, you will have to sustain me as the only Husband with me for a little time again. Within 12 to 26 hours I will be getting on a bus and leaving my heart behind in Texas. Back to my sister’s in Iowa I go. I trust you with my Mate, Lord. […]

May 3

Hello, Father. Thank you for blessed relief, no matter how temporary. Thank you for giving me a characteristically positive outlook, so that my “norm” is optimism and only rare days are depressing. Thank you for making me simple, yet with a vast array of interests, so that I am perpetually interested in something, except during […]

Apr 15

Hello, Father! Thank you for the awesome progress on my pet project, and thank you for the balance achieved between working and giving. Please help me to know when I need to take a break, and please help me understand better all the time how to refresh my brain, body, spirit, and emotional stability. Teach […]

Mar 28

Good morning, Lord. I am low on hope today, and I wonder just how much it is due to incessant rain and being trapped inside a tiny popup camper for three days straight. I thought it was going well enough when I went to bed last night, but while trying to wake myself this morning, […]

Mar 27

Hello, Father! Thank you for this nice rain, even the torentuous blowing and thundering and pounding rain of last night and early this morning. Thank you that all my things stayed more-or-less dry, and that it is warm this time instead of icy cold! Thank you for the break in the rain, the peaceful drippings […]

Feb 17

Hello, Lord! Thank you again for consistent internet (wifi)!! I actually almost forgot to post, seeing as I am not used to being able to do so two days in a row, lol. Thank you for my new level of organization, and thank you for motivation and learning and forward progress! Thank you for THREE […]

Dec 8

Hello, Father! Thank you so much for the healing and growth and encouragement this day. Thank you for helping me sleep for nine hours pretty straight right through the coldest night, down into the low twenties, sleeping in the popup camper. Thank you for helping me prepare with layers of clothing and blankets and hoodie […]

Dec 6

Hello, Father. Thank you for being near me, guiding me through each step of each day. Thank you for tender moments shared with your Spirit, sometimes with my Mate as well. Thank you for challenges and growth, and opportunities to serve you and your people. Father, please help us through the next couple days with […]

Thank you, Lord, for bringing a bit of deliverance and hope. Thank you for fellowship and growth today. Thank you for caring for me all night long while I struggled with sleep and despair, and thank you for the comforting sound of the two owls communicating nearby.

  Psalm 32:7‭-‬10 AMPC

You are a hiding […]

Nov 12

Good morning, Father. Thank you again for my love of learning and exploration, often the only things besides my love for you and my Mate and my children, which keeps me striving forward. Lord, I am feeling a bit discouraged, but I also feel the encouragement of your Spirit inside me, and I choose to […]

Nov 9

Lord, please help me not to fall into the trap of anguish and concern over things I really cannot contol. In fact, there seems to be very little I CAN control right now, and we are spiralling toward the Unknown at break-neck speed. Things seem to be getting worse instead of better right now, and […]
