Good morning, Lord! Thank you for closeness and warmth — and warm clothes!

Heehee — I guess it’s the […]

Good morning, Father! I think it is kinda kooky how I keep being wide awake at 2am, and sometimes have so much energy for so long that I wonder if I will ever sleep “normally” again! But you just keep on taking care of me, Lord, so I just keep on chuggin’ along, making new […]

Hello, Father. I’m feeling a little exhausted. Please help me make it through this day with all the family over, all the chatting and catching up.

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the awesomeness of my simple, frugal life. I already had to interrupt this post in order to grab an empty cereal box to hand to my Mate to start the fire for our breakfast. I love the way he makes eggs and how they are so much tastier cooked […]

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 […]
