Lord, I thank you for the growing trust and warmth between my Mate and I again. This morning he seems more upbeat than he has in many days, more further along in healing, in moving past the recent events. Thank you for that, Lord. Meanwhile, I feel like it hurts more than ever for me. […]

Lord, I thank you for your mercy. You see every single thing that has transpired between my Mate and I and the people here at this RV park. I cannot even go into details because it is packed with things that only Mates and our awesome Shepherd could ever know. Please help me to give […]

Lord, I feel so raw, so physically sick, so emotionally wounded. It is hard to have much hope today. Things feel very dark and harsh, and your Love and kindness feel too far away in the future to be of much encouragement right now. Thank you, though, for reminding me over and over that I […]

Hello, Father. Lord, I feel useless, worthless, a failure. I cannot provide for my children, was not able to rise above the damaging effects of a torturous childhood to become a “success” enough to be financially stable and supportive of my family. This is one of those days when I wonder WHY oh WHY you […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the good cry I had this morning, and thank you for not leaving or forsaking me. I give myself to you, Lord, and I ask you to help me to be a little bit closer to your kingdom tomorrow, than I am today. Help me to be more free, […]

Good morning, Father. In some way, I feel like I have betrayed my Tiny Friend, for I have made it past the two things that were holding me to him. I took down his outdoor pen and mowed in the front yard, and I took a shower and (what feels like) washed him all off […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for the warmth and encouragement in my heart this morning. Thank you for letting my daughter stay here today, instead of either going to her friend’s for a week (as originally planned) or going to work with my husband (as is normal). It really seems like I need her more […]

Lord, this hurts, and I guess it’s only going to get worse. I have to put my tiny dog down today. After 12 years of faithful and loyal companionship, all I can give him is a peaceful end. But you could have done that, Lord! I still don’t know I’m making the best decision. Yet […]

Good morning, Lord! It seems like longer than a day ago since I did my last post. I stayed up most of the night with my tiny dog, feeling almost certain he was going to die, and I just wanted to comfort him, let him know he is loved and cared for. He seemed more […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for your constant care and growing me for you, Lord. Thank you for the recent contact with each of my adult children, and thank you for bringing us all safely through the season when I had school-age children, for today is my youngest child’s LAST day of high school…! That […]
