Well Lord, it looks like there are a bunch of good working days coming — cloudy and cooler (highs in the 50s) with nothing that I know of to get done outside, not even any errands to run or anything like that for awhile. My Mate should be busy with his projects, and I hope to make some good progress on my own stuffs. THANK YOU for the gorgeous weather yesterday, the light rain included, lol. Thank you for closeness with my Mate, even though I did get a bit too emotional, talking about my dream of buying a mixed-use building in West Michigan. It seems like he heard my heart speaking, in my most imperfect words. Father, please prepare us BOTH for the coming changes. I know things will NOT turn out like I expect them to — they never do. Yet another reason why I feel so grateful to be cared for by you, led by your Spirit, able to trust you to be my faithful Shepherd who prepares me and provides for little me every day. I know what my heart wants, but only you have the ability to know what I truly NEED. I give you my heart’s contents, with all my hopes and dreams, my fears and dreads… and all my little ideas and projects and plans. THANK YOU for the nice art play time again last night, working on my 5 different small canvasses, from a rustic Texas, fleurs-de-lis, and a cross… to my winged cross on Yupo paper. THANK YOU for my ability to find joy in the little things, seeing art and beauty even in the tabletop covered in art supplies, and all the little steps of works-in-progress. I truly do enjoy the process of art — the journey. Sometimes I even desire to leave an unfinished piece sitting out where I can see it, slightly concerned that in taking the next step, I may not like it quite as much. Please help me to grow even more bold and courageous, as I follow you and learn to trust you more all the time, Lord.
