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 […]

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.

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for the amazing peace and even delightful JOY I have, despite having all our money stolen and our dream home smashed and burned.

Good morning, Father! I thank you, my Creator, for making me a happy person! I watched a learning show yesterday on emotions, where the professor was encouraging people to “cultivate a character” that makes positivity a habit. I know there is a LOT of truth in the fact that we may not be able to […]

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 feel absolutely spoiled, like I am the luckiest, most blessed woman in all the world! I am homeless, have no money, and haven’t seen my husband in 3+ weeks. BUT I have the best home and the best rewards and the best TWO husbands (one eternal, one temporal) in existence — couldn’t ask […]

Hello, Father! Thank you, my Shepherd, for answered prayer. Sometimes we pray particularly for one thing with our mind and tongue, and yet you bless us with something that is even closer to our hearts, something we perhaps did not pray in words but within our heart’s desire. Or there might be a desire that […]

Hello, Lord! Thank you for this peaceful day, and thank you for leading us to an eye doctor that can see my husband immediately.
