Lord, I thank you for making me to know you as Creator when I was VERY young — before I even had a word like “God” to use, and I only thought of you as something similar to “He who OWNS all this”. Thank you for the beautiful morning air trickling in my window right now, and thank you for my simple, frugal life that allows me to live peacefully with my Mate, slowly building my new website, struggling to be patient with that process, but content to just follow your lead, and accept your timing. Thank you for the ongoing process of healing and growth, and thank you for your Spirit that sustained me when I was that tiny, abused little child — and all through my life until I am the maturing woman I am today. Thank you for your life-giving Word, and thank you for the peace with the Father, provided through the death of the Son on the cross. Thank you for your awesome patience and mercy, Lord. Amen.
