It is in the death flow 4:20 PM Thursday afternoon. It has been one of those days you soon forget. It is still cold and gray outside as type out these words. I wonder if in November it will snow. Our daughter Bethany and her family plan to visit us next month. I hope when Beth, Andy and the kids come it is nice weather.
I did mow the lawn and rake leaves this afternoon. After working outside I came inside cleaned up and dozed. I have not heard from Carol since this morning.
Yesterday I mentioned I found only two used books while visiting local thrift stores. One of the used books I found was titled, 'Leonardo's Mountain Of Clams And The Diet Of Worms: Essays On Natural History' by Stephen Jay Gould. I got out of our library the books we have by Stephen Jay Gould. I collect Gould's writings, because even though I do not agree with his views on creation he is an interesting writer. Here is a list of books we have by Gould-

So this day crawls by. I am finding the days to be very long and empty with my wife being near me. Well I suppose I will close to read 'Ascent of Mount Carmel' by St. John of the Cross. All one can do is wait for the New Creation. It will soon be over.
" But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." Second Peter 3:10-14
