Good morning, Lord. Thank you for being near me, encouraging me, giving me CALM. I thank you that no matter what, you are ENOUGH. I need nothing else at all. Still, Lord, I ask you for your continued mercy, upon myself and my Mate and my children and my other dearest loved ones. Sustain us, […]

Lord, I feel weary and my head is hurting again. I thank you for blessing me with peace and nice weather, a safe place to sleep, and even electricity and decent food. I lift all four of my children up to you and ask you to bless each one with a personal relationship with you […]

Good evening, Lord. Thank you for your mercy in getting through this long and stress-filled day, and thank you for allowing me a break from things a bit this evening. Please restore me, build me back up, and help me to get a very good night of sleep tonight. Please help my Mate and my […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for helping me to NOT get too excited about moisture inside the little camper, condensing ON the plastic bags that were supposed to be protecting my art supplies and clothing from the outside drizzle. Thank you for two days straight of lighthearted play and conversation with my Mate, hardly even […]

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 […]

Oct 9

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me yesterday through the super-grogginess of nighttime and daytime cough syrups, lol. Thank you for helping my cough improve radically through so much sleep, and please continue to heal me and my Mate and protect my sister from what we are struggling with. Thank you for your enduring […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for helping me “sleep in” until after 4am!! Thank you for helping me finally get some good, solid sleep after almost 2 days without. And thank you for helping me get soooooo much work done during that time, actually making up for much of the time lost to […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your awesome care, keeping my Mate and I safe from excess stress and harm during this time of mourning our loss. Thank you for peace between us, for closeness, for hope. I thank you for being the faithful Shepherd that you are, so that even though there seems no […]

Aug 14

Hello, Lord! Thank you for three days in a row begun by talking to my best friend and Mate, once for almost 2 hours and yesterday for over 3 hours straight, lol. And although today was short, I got a couple new pics by email, so I am feeling more in touch with him and […]

Aug 10

Ouch ouch ouch. Another intense time of feeling for my Mate. I cannot save him, not from the world, not from himself. I cannot even help him, except to pray. All I can really do is just trust our Shepherd to take care of him. Jesus knows. He sees. He cares. And He is at […]

Aug 3

Hello, Lord. Thank you for this busy day, and thank you for keeping my husband and my children safe and peaceful. I haven’t had contact with my sons in almost a week, but I trust that you are taking excellent care of them, Father, thank you. The day is getting closer when my Mate arrives […]

Aug 2

Hello, Father. Thank you for this nice day, all the good-for-me food like fresh cherries and fresh corn on the cob, and thank you for a good talk with my sister this evening. Lord, I ask you to please be with my husband and guide him faithfully. Show him what to do with the camper, […]

Jul 30

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 […]

Jul 26

Hello, Father. I am not sure if you want me to keep posting here every day, but I figure when I think about it, I will do it. I give my thoughts to you, knowing you can so easily lead me, and so often do. You are the Mover of my Heart, and you move […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for landing us in ER land — Emergency Recovery from our most recent adventures, lol. Thank you for the way you are moving in my oldest son’s life, even giving him a new place to live for his 28th birthday — yay! Please continue to touch the lives of my children […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for supreme peace and joy, even in the face of disaster and the Unknown. Thank you for strength of heart, for courage, for Love. Thank you for the invaluable learning, especially the wisdom that comes of losing your life in order to find it. Thank you for fellowship and friendship and […]

May 31

Hello, Father. Thank you for this quiet moment to sit and write my post. My body is antsy, restless and ready to spring into action. Thank you for my health and my energy, and thank you for excitement and hope. Thank you for clean body and clean clothes! And thank you so much for the […]

May 2

Good morning, Lord. I am starting to get little twinges of fear and self-doubt, now that the time is near to leave this place and be homeless nomads. I don’t really feel any regret, and I do have a measure of excited anticipation, but the negative emotions do seem to have increased in the last […]

Apr 28

Lord, I am so shocked that we are still in this house. Thank you for our landlord’s mercy, for I can see how much it helps my husband. As for me, I seem to be getting used to the roller coaster ride of holding my breath and letting it out. I think facing the Unknown […]

Apr 20

Hello, Father. Thank you for the silly and fun times, and lots of practice using my phone for video. I still feel like I really need a good camera in order to do all the work my husband and I are hoping to achieve in the coming months, but I trust you to either provide […]
