page 1000 2016 Diary
It is 8:47 AM Saturday morning here in West Michigan. It is a cold snowy day. My wife and I just got back from grocery shopping. After we put away the groceries my wife left to go downtown to buy new shoes for work. I thought I should sit down now and write an entry for my online diaries. I leave this morning around 9:45 AM to volunteer at the Herrick District Public Library Used Bookstore from 10 AM till 1 PM. Existence keeps flowing into the Void.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. My wife was already up when I got up eating a grape fruit. I made us oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast we went grocery shopping. So goes my life thus far.

Last night I did nothing and went to bed early. The last book I read was titled, "Bear: The Life and Times of Augustus Owsley Stanley III" biography by Robert Greenfield.

There is not much else to report right now. I will close to drift. I am not going anywhere.

This afternoon as I was on our main computer I looked out the window on my right I saw our neighborhood hawk in our neighbor's back yard. I grabbed my camera and took some pictures of him before he flew away.

It is 11:40 AM Friday late morning on a cold snowy day here in West Michigan. This morning I asked my wife of 37 years "Will my life be the same till the day I die?" I do the same things each day and I do not see any changes in the days to come. I do the same things each day, I get up and go through the same routine. Is this God's plan for my life. I am living I suppose the life most dream of living. I am blessed but should I be out blessing others. But then I remember it was the Lord who closed the doors for me living the life of gospel preacher. I wanted to die preaching the glories of Christ, but God put me on the shelf. I am gathering dust, while the world continues to go down the drain.

I got up this morning around 8 o'clock AM. When I woke up my right hand was numb. Did I suffer a stroke during the night. Soon my right hand was functioning once again. I got up got a glass of cold water to clear my throat. I put on my house shoes and went outside into the snow covered earth to get the morning newspaper off the walkway leading to our front door. I do not read the morning paper, but place it on the dining room table for my wife to look at when she gets home from work. My wife likes reading newspapers. I get my News off the internet.

I messed with our main computer and then Carol got home from work. She is off tonight from work. I spent the morning reading, writing, watching birds and messing with our main computer. Carol went to bed for the day around 9:35 AM.

I have been reading mainly this morning the book, "The Triune God" by Fred Sanders.

Last night is a blur so I won't try to describe what I did last night. I usually do the same things every night.

I have no plans for the afternoon hours. I am waiting it out. Well I suppose I will close to watch the snow fall.

"Therefore we make it our aim whether present or absent, to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and also trust are well known in your consciences" 2 Corinth. 5:9-11

It is 9:42 AM Thursday morning here by Lake Michigan. It is snowing outside and the wind is howling. We are having our first major snow storm here in West Michigan. Around this time of year it would be nice to have a wood fire going in our fireplace, but Carol is allergic to wood smoke. In the past I spent many a cold nights by a fireplace or a campfire. I always thought that in my 60's I would be living out in the woods and have a potbelly store blazing. Instead I am sitting in a nice cozy middle class house in Holland Michigan waiting to go home.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then made myself some oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. Carol came home from work and has gone to bed for the day. She goes back to work tonight. After Carol went to bed I fed the birds and cleaned the kitchen. Now I am writing stuff into my online diaries. I plan to read this morning for morning worship a book titled, "The Triune God" by Fred Sanders.

Last night I read my books and went to bed early. Carol got up around 3 o'clock AM to go back work. She worked this morning from 4 AM till 8 AM.

There is not much else to report. It looks like it is going to be another super quiet day for me. I will read my books, watch birds and write in my diary. I live a simple life of a old man.

I finally finished reading last night the novel, "The Castaway Lounge" a novel by Jon Boilard. I wrote out a two page reflection on this novel to read on my BookTube channel someday. I started reading yesterday a novel I bought couple of months ago titled, "Stone Arabia" by Dana Spiotta.

Did I mentioned I received in the mail yesterday a used book I had ordered titled, "Browsing: A Year Of Reading, Collecting, And Living With Books" by Michael Dirha.

Well I will close to read and ponder.
