Hello, Lord. Thank you for the many opportunities today to show mercy and compassion to others, and thank you for the chance to help my mother-in-law prepare her new house for holiday guests. Thank you for all the humbling learning experiences I have had lately, and thank you for helping me to not get as […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the crazy chaos inside my head these last 24+ hours, for I know that you must have SOME purpose for it, lol. I know it keeps me from trying to do anything tooooo serious or seriously difficult, so perhaps it is part of a little forced break after working […]

Lord, I feel pretty raw, emotionally and mentally exhausted, and even pretty scared. I fear the coming cold, and not having a place to call home, a warm place to work and to live where I do NOT burden anyone else. I fear that there will be more days like yesterday, when my Mate and […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for helping me find my way back to my normal happy self, my “set-point” of joy that I return to over and over whenever I am not crushed by some new tragedy — life’s crazy “set-backs”, lol. Thank you for making me a generally happy person, a “free spirit” as […]

Lord, I am fixing to leave Texas in a couple hours, first time out of this state in about 6 or 7 years… and to be honest, I’m feeling pretty nervous. I really don’t understand why. I could guess, and I can be lenient on myself and self-compassionate and make all kinds of understanding and […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for the breakthroughs of the last day or so! Thank you for leading us to a truck that seems to be the one you have for us. Thank you for providing enough money for us to purchase the truck, and even getting to meet one of your children, […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for the awesome progress on learning to use Illustrator CC yesterday, and thank you for waking me up all excited to learn and do MORE, early this morning! Father, please bless my son with a good birthday today, and help his heart to find joy and peace. Lead him into […]

Lord, it is hard not knowing what is happening to my husband and daughter. It is hurtful of them not to respond to my texts, not to send me even one single line in all these hours, letting me know they are okay. They could have gotten in a car accident or pulled over by […]

Sep 21

Good morning, Father. Thank you for my excitement and motivation yesterday. Thank you for helping me remember to look at things with new eyes, like everything is new and good and deserves a chance. Thank you for teaching me to withhold judgement on any event or circumstance, just letting things play out as they will, […]

Jul 25

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me endure these emotions lately, and not taking them out on anyone around me. Thank you for helping my daughter and I get her all ready for her big trip, and please have mercy and keep her safe. Do the little extra for her, that is in my […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the fun time I had last night, making my crazy art — even though I stayed up later than I had planned. Thank you for the freedom I’m starting to feel more frequently, and thank you for the courage to create, to not try to conform to some ideal […]

May 17

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for the fun and peaceful time together with my husband last night. Thank you for giving me a little bit more structure for my day, too! I am excited about growing and learning and doing new things with you, Lord! Please help me to be faithful and keep […]

May 16

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your enduring patience with me. I thank you that I can count on you to grow me and keep me faithful and strong — I don’t need to do it all by myself. Please help me look to you to meet my needs, instead of foolishly trying to push […]

May 12

Good morning, Father! Thank you for leading me, guiding me, helping me to not get overwhelmed or discouraged with all the busy-ness as of late. Thank you for teaching me, Lord. Please help me to learn quickly enough to accomplish all the tasks I need to here in this place, before we move — whenever […]

Apr 17

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the nice rain and darkened, cozy house today. It feels like the atmosphere is much more relaxed than it has been on my husband’s other Sundays off, and he is even resting — yay! Please let your peace reign in our home today, and let us all feel your […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for helping my husband find the ladder levelers he needs to stay safe. Please continue to be with him in his work, growing him in wisdom and understanding and patience. Thank you for watching over all my children, and thank you specifically for prodding my oldest son’s heart, giving him […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for giving me a good night’s sleep, including a little time with the hubby. Please be with me & my daughter today as we meet with the DARS lady. Go before us and prepare the way for her to initiate whatever help you would like her to provide for my […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you for taking care of me last night, when I was so very uncomfortable. Thank you for holding me, comforting me, letting me feel your presence. Please be with me today, help me remember to act in love rather than aggitation or impatience. Help me to be a real help to […]
