Good morning, Lord! THANK YOU for the last 4 days off in a row! It is AWESOME to be down to working just 2 or maybe 3 days per week at the facility, and having the rest of the days to concentrate on my online business… and it is AWESOME to have a plan for the next two months or so! Since my Mate is NOT coming up to Michigan due to the situation with his truck, I have made plans to work just 4 more weeks here, leaving Michigan in mid-October and going to visit my sister in Iowa for one to three weeks before heading to Texas to stay with my Mate for the winter. He promises to have the place nice and homey for me… but to be honest, I really am not expecting much. The property has NO running water, no septic, and limited electricity. I do not know how much reception I will get there, but it looks like it will be little to none. I will have to drive to take a shower or to do much work online. However, it WILL be Texas-warm all winter long, allowing me to avoid the snow and ice that will overtake my northern HOME. And of course best of all, my MATE will be there, and I will get to see him and touch him and interact with him every single day, which is the absolute BEST part about being in Texas!! :D It is hard, hard, hard to be away from my best friend and lover this long… but I try not to think about how much I miss him, and just concentrate on whatever is before me at that given moment. :) More and more, I am learning to trust YOU, Father, for your perfect timing and provision. Amen. Lead on, Faithful Shepherd!
