Good morning, Father! Thank you for providing your Word and your Spirit, both of which help us make it through this life, growing and becoming more like you, more aligned to your way and your truth and your will! It is awesome how you continue to give me new little plumblines (new to ME), concepts […]

Good morning, Father. I am so very grateful that I do not have to face this life alone. I have an awesome, capable Mate, wonderful children, a couple good friends, and even a sister that helps me so much. And above all, I have your ever-present Holy Spirit who constantly guides me, comforts me, teaches […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for giving me peace and reassurance, so that I do not get too stressed out worrying about how we are going to get money and a place to sleep and food to eat. Thank you for some really awesome moments with my husband, finding unexpected joys in unique ways and […]

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 […]

Hello, Father! Today I am celebrating one full year without a working vehicle, because one year ago today the inspection/registration ran out on my car, and I refused to have it pass inspection by illegal means, still knowing I could not afford to have it repaired enough to pass legally. That same car still sits […]

Hello, Shepherd! I fall more and more in love with you every day, Lord. This is another of those times in life when I look around me at all the ways things CAN improve, and yet I wonder how I can hold any more joy than I already have, living my last days/weeks in a […]

Hello, Father! Thank you for the wonderful, peaceful, invigorating walk in the cool of the early morning today.

Good morning, Father. Thank you for a good night of restorative sleep, and thank you for helping me feel quite a bit better today. I am antsy, Lord, as I wait for my new laptop to arrive. To be honest, I am kinda weepy. I wish I was not so sensitive! I have been so […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for hope again this morning, showing me in my mind’s eye what COULD happen. It seems impossible, Lord, but I know you are the God of impossibilities, and it really seems that you enjoy rescuing your people at the last moment some times. Thank you for your presence in our […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for growing me past that horrible, difficult day of despair yesterday. Thank you for healing my husband and bringing out the sunshine, so it will be a bit warmer in this house today — physically and emotionally, lol. Father, I thank you for making me unable to give up or […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you so much for taking care of me while I go through this hormone stuff again — AND everything else, like no heat and confusing computer stuff! Thank you for the joy that still lives in my heart and how I get all excited about certain “little things”. It surprises me […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the awesome time of fellowship and growth, both last night and again this morning.

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for giving me a few ways to help my husband without getting toooo overwhelmed. Thank you for helping my body to be strong enough to do all this walking to carry groceries and such home from the stores, and please help this hormone down-cycle to not be toooo bad this […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the awesome warm weather lately – 80 degrees yesterday, in January!! And now it is already 69 degrees, while I sit on the porch, typing on my phone and listening to birds sing and the distant train rumble. Father, you see that my computer is on the fritz again, […]

Dec 18

Good morning, Lord. Father, please sustain me, as I know that you will, even if I didn’t ask. I only do ask because I know that it pleases you. I know that you are faithful and although I FEEL all alone and hurting, like there is no tomorrow, no hope, I know that you ARE […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for this day, and thank you for the opportunity to learn, and grow, and become stronger and more pleasing to you, Lord! Please watch over my family and my dear friend in New York today, Shepherd. Touch each of our hearts in a unique way special to us. Thank you […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for getting me up this morning and getting right to my wake-up exercises! Thank you for reminding me that diligence is “doing what you need to do, when you need to do it, whether you FEEL like it or not”. LOL — I need a lot of practice, […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the peaceful day of learning and relaxing yesterday, and thank you for motivating me for a nice 3+ mile walk after the sun went down!

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for loving me, caring for me, leading me. Thank you for protecting my husband and my children, and for keeping us all safe and healthy. Thank you for helping me heal, more and more, the hole that my Tiny Friend’s death left in my heart — one month ago today. […]
