Good morning, Father. Lord, I thank you that everything that absolutely needs to get done before my Mate arrives has already been done, so that anything ELSE I accomplish in the remaining days is just a bonus. No pressure, no hurry, no worry. I still don’t know the details of his coming, and there are […]

Hello, Lord. Wow, what IS it about Fridays this month? Heehee, I almost missed the third Friday in a row, and I have no idea why. Guess it’s just a little funky coincidence. Well, I thank you, Lord, for humor and lightness and HOPE and growth and learning and awesome new perspectives. I thank you […]

Good morning, Lord. Thank you, faithful Shepherd, for helping me find PATIENCE once again. Thank you for CALM, and peace, and security. Thank you for providing for ALL my needs and those of my beloved ones, so that I can feel free from all worry and upset. Please be with my Mate as he visits […]

Ugh, Lord, I am sooooo frustrated!! It was delightful to wander around taking photos and vids in patina paradise today, and to talk to all the awesome peeps, and to be of help and service to the community and the church, but I want so bad to get ON with my “homeless nomad” lifestyle WITH […]

Jul 7

Hello, Father! Well, today my earthly father would be 88 years old, if he were still alive. Alas it has been close to ten years since he died — on MY birthday… and exactly 41 years since HIS father died on HIS birthday — 7-7-77 — how crazy is THAT?! Lord, you sure have a […]

May 19

Lord, I honestly feel like I do not DO enough to “earn my keep” — to be allowed to keep living in this world, especially here at my sister’s peaceful nature retreat. Besides that, I feel kinda lost. Yesterday was intense (but disappointing) outdoor yardwork and end-of-internet-cycle day, and today is a rainy Sabbath with […]

Apr 27

Father, today I feel like NOT myself. I feel very small, cringey, and vulnerable — like a bug on a carcass in danger of being devoured by a lion. I know that sounds weird, but so is this feeling. I just feel kinda junky, but not entirely junk… kinda in the way, but yet not […]

Mar 23

Good morning, Father. I am sorry I have been ignoring this little prayer blog for a few days, even though I really didn’t have a reason other than just not doing it, lol. I thank you for all the progress — and R&R time — that I have had these last few days, and I […]

Feb 25

Hello, Lord. Thank you for the opportunity to learn and grow some more today. I feel ever so slightly lost, unsure what I am supposed to be doing. Probably from being stuck inside this little camper for several days straight while it rained, rained, rained, froze, and thawed. Now the sun is shining and it […]

Dec 20

Lord, you see my fears, my hopes, my vulnerabilities. You see what I am facing today, and I thank you for what you have already lead me through. I know I can trust you, and that you are truly the only thing I need to be safe, and fulfilled, and joyous. I thank you for […]

Hello, Father. Thank you for giving me such incredible peace this morning, and thank you for helping me to calmly and happily compose a nice long snail mail letter to my oldest son today, despite all the craziness of change going on around me. Please bless the package I send to him, protect it and […]

Nov 12

Good morning, Father. Thank you again for my love of learning and exploration, often the only things besides my love for you and my Mate and my children, which keeps me striving forward. Lord, I am feeling a bit discouraged, but I also feel the encouragement of your Spirit inside me, and I choose to […]

Nov 2

Hello, Father. I’m not sure why you want me to rest so much when I have so very much to do, but I accept your will for me, and ask that you help me feel good enough, soon enough, to stand and take a shower instead of just trying to sit up and absorb sunlight, […]

Jul 2

Good morning, Father. Lord, I really don’t know where I’m at today, I am just trying my best to follow you and not try to critically analyze or overthink things. I trust you, Shepherd. You have never let me down. Thank you for your faithful care. Amen.

There is a right […]

Apr 27

Good morning, Father. Today I find myself about half way between curious speculation (what are you up to? what are you planning for us? why is it taking so much longer than anticipated?) and patient optimism (well, I can do this… and this.. and this… while I wait). I honestly do not know what is […]

Apr 26

Okay, Lord, you know how much I HATE to procrastinate and leave things to the last minute… yet I am still trusting you, and doing my very best to just let it all go, give it all to you, and accept your will and your TIMING. Please help me to be patient with your timing […]

Mar 12

Hello, Father. Thank you for taking care of me. I feel weary and frazzled and worn OUT right now. Please make a way for me to rest and recover in my own crazy introvert way that YOU made me, Lord. Thank you for nature and nature shows. Thank you for time and the fact that […]

Nov 9

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the motivation I feel this morning, and thank you for giving me a backlog of things to get done, to move forward in many areas! Please help me to pace myself today, Lord, so that I do not get burned out. Show me YOUR way of managing time and […]

Oct 2

Good morning, Father! Thank you for both a good night’s sleep and time with my husband! Thank you for allowing me to take things a bit slower this coming week, my birthday week! I hope to do more art and perhaps more reading this week, and definitely put less pressure on myself to work, work, […]
