Good morning, Lord. Thank you for your enduring care, the way that I can always trust that you are near and watching over me, whether I can feel you or not. I thank you that I can always find things to be grateful for, always cheer up a bit by donning an attitude of gratitude, […]

Good morning, Father! I didn’t get a post in yesterday — I really need to start doing it during “free internet time” 2am to 8am, to be even more frugal with my sister’s internet. Please help me do that, Lord. Thanks!!   Lord, this is the first time that my husband has said he is […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for healing and restoration of hope. Thank you for providing some very interesting timeframes, especially my son being in a town almost exactly halfway between myself and my husband, right along the path he must travel to get here. It will be very interesting to see what you have in store […]

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 […]

Father, I thank you for this peaceful slow day that all of a sudden seems to be ending before I realize much time has passed. I feel like I didn’t do much today beyond listening to music and sorting little girls’ clothing in preparation for the visit of my sister’s granddaughters here. Father, I thank […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for preserving me and keeping me FREE. Please be with each of my children this weekend, and help us all to remain firmly planted in your peace and protection. Thank you again for my awesome husband and also for my friend in New York. Please help them both to feel your […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the nice talks and fellowship yesterday, and thank you for helping me create four new webpages for my husband on my namesake website yesterday, so he forever has an online portfolio to show his work (and whatever else he wants me to add in the future, lol). Thank you […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for your care, and for strengthening my husband and myself and my children. Thank you for keeping us all safe and nurturing us, Father. Thank you, awesome Shepherd, for leading me gently each day, showing me where you would have me to walk, and how to do things your way. […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for this nice hot soup on my sore throat. Thank you for the warmth in the house today, and for the increasing temperature outside — up to 70+ degrees again tomorrow, they say! Yay! I only wish I could feel better that quick, so I could go for a long walk […]

Dec 7

Hello, Father! Thank you for helping me get so much done yesterday, and thank you for encouraging me to sleep in today so my body does not succumb to the respiratory troubles floating around here lately. Thank you for the kindness of my husband, making me peppermint tea — which actually helped quite a bit! […]

Dec 4

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me through such a brainless day yesterday, just taking it easy and enjoying being caught up on things. Father, please help me to be patient and kind and supportive today. Please motivate my husband into action, getting his things listed that he wants to sell to get up […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for this nice peaceful day and thank you for being near me, growing me, and pruning things out of my life that get in the way! Please be with my husband and daughter in Oklahoma today, keep them safe and bring them home safely. Let their work go well and […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your awesome, merciful protection yesterday. I had no idea that the furry little caterpillar I picked up — twice — was the most venomous caterpillar in America! I was just delighted to have something to show my daughter, as she is always bringing nature stuff home to show me. […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for getting me up and going this morning, with some brisk exercise to wake me and warm me! Thank you for the cooler weather, and the nice walk I had in it last night. Thank you for my enthusiasm and determination this morning, and thank you for giving my husband […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for your awesome provision and protection, for getting me home safely last night through all the crazy traffic and construction. Thank you for the joy in my heart this morning, and my excitement to make progress on my goals, both work and personal. Father, I pray that you be very […]

Aug 21

Hello, Father. I feel so “off” today, and I am getting a bit frustrated with myself now. I write, erase, write, erase. My head feels funny. I know that my head has been stuffy, and it was even bad enough to take a sinus pill last night. So perhaps that’s the problem — I just […]

Aug 14

Good morning, Father. Thank you for giving my husband time to vent while still making it short enough that my ears did not get overwhelmed. Please be with him today, and move him forward in your plan for his life. Bring him very close to you and reveal to him whatever he needs to see, […]

Aug 9

Good morning, Father. I feel rather down and despairing this morning. But I know that you understand my heart even more than I do myself, and you are still caring for me. Thank you, Lord. I will not give up, will not give in, will not lay down and declare the battle won. I know […]

Aug 1

Good morning, Father. Thank you for being such a reliable, stabilizing force while I endure the rollercoaster of premenopause! Yesterday morning I was so up, and today I am just plain skittish — not sad, not really fearful, definitely not angry or anything else quite recognizable. I just feel vulnerable, like I want to put […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the nice way of waking up this morning, and already having done some work on my art! Thank you for my husband’s lightness and cheerfulness this morning, and thank you so much for taking awesome care of him! Please help him in this heat, Lord. Protect him and help […]
