Good morning, Father! THANK YOU for protecting my Mate last night while he faced down a rattlesnake and killed it. Thank you for giving him wisdom and speedy reactions, and thank you for the huge encouragement and boost to his vitality! Thank you for all the work he has gotten done down there in Texas, preparing things for us when we both return for the winter. Please help him finish up all his tasks down there, and have an excellent visit with his mother, before he heads up here to be with me in Michigan. I don’t know what all you have planned for us, Lord, but I do know that my heart delights in being with my Mate, and it also delights in being here in my HOME state of Michigan, surrounded by green and water. I have never had the privilege of having BOTH of those delights at once — being with my Mate IN MICHIGAN — so I am feeling a bubbling joy of excitement!! Thank you also, Lord, for all the awesome exercise I’ve been getting lately! My body is already feeling stronger and more supple and flexible. Please continue to lead me in how to take good, good care of my body, and please teach me more all the time about how to best feed and care for BOTH my own body and that of my Mate. Amen. Thank you, Lord Jesus!
