THANK YOU, Lord, for some of the most awesome closeness with you and with nature that I have had in a good long while! Not only did I have the delight to spend most of the day outside yesterday, but for all the 4 days before that, I had at LEAST several hours after dark to sit outside and enjoy the sounds, smells, and sensations of the outdoors. :D Thank you again for an awesome visit with my youngest son — that did this Mama’s heart good. :D Thank you for peace and closeness with my Mate and so many good friends and family members. Thank you for my health, and the ability to start working my knee back into a more healthy alignment, slowly stretching those injured ligaments, following the prompting of your Spirit and using what is available to me to use as points of resistance to work against. I feel blessed beyond measure, and although I lack full confidence in myself and my work and my ability to make enough income to support us, I have faith enough to make up the difference, trusting my awesome faithful Shepherd to provide and protect. THANK YOU, Lord, for making me just how I am, and giving me this simple, frugal lifestyle. I feel VERY happy and content and hopeful. Amen.
