It is in the flow of this day 4:24 PM a cold snowy Monday here in West Michigan. This day has gone by like a slow icy cold winter wind. It seems I have been up forever! I can't seem to get into anything today. I am completely out of it. Do not know why. Weird.

I broke my Yamaha Natural Sound Compact Player CDC 5-Disc player this afternoon. It is a long complex story how it happened. So I had to buy myself a new one, which was a bummer. But I had to get a new Yamaha CD-C600BL 5-Disc CD Changer (Black) because I have a huge CD collection and I listen to music when I get tired of silence and listening to my inner voice.

I really have done nothing today but wander the house and watch birds from our kitchen window. Carol was gone all morning and got home around 12:30 PM. She went to bed to sleep this afternoon, because she works tonight. She works the next three nights.

I have been trying to read this afternoon from a book titled, 'Schlesinger: The Imperial Historian' biography by Richard Aldous.

Like I wrote I am out of it. Maybe I am already feeling the effects of extreme Winter weather today. I will have to drive Carol to work tonight since she does want to dig our car out of the snow when she gets out of work in the morning.

Well I will close to drift into the night time hours.

I bought my present stereo in February 2012.

It is in the flow of the Plan of God for the cosmos 9:48 AM Monday morning here West Michigan. Outside it is snowing and it is cold.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up I found my wife making sugar cookies. I made myself a pot of oatmeal. Carol left this morning to have breakfast with a friend and then to visit another friend in a Rest Home. She took cookies to give to these friends. My wife at this time of year makes tons of sugar cookies and peanut brittle to give to family and friends. My wife is constantly giving. There is joy in giving.

After Carol left around 7:55 AM I fed the birds and wrote in my paper diary. I then made video for my Booktube channel and have been reading from these books this morning for devotions-

'God has Spoken in his Son: A biblical theology of Hebrews' by Peter T. O'Brien [New Studies In Biblical Theology]

'Hebrews, James' New Testament XIII [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Ronald K. Rittgers

There is not much else going on right now. I have nothing to do today but wait.

Last night Caleb, Emily, and Josie Joy left around 5:25 PM for their home in Grand Rapids. Carol and I watched professional football. Carol went to bed early and I wandered the house till I got sleepy. I went to bed around 10:30 PM and now it is another day. Existence keeps zooming by full speed.

I will close to watch the snow fall and to seek the Lord.

"[1] I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
[2] My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
[3] O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
[4] I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
[5] They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
[6] This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles." Psalm 34:1-6

It is in the death flow 10:10 AM Sunday morning here in West Michigan. It is a cold Winter morning. It is going to start snowing this afternoon. We will have white out conditions in the roads today. I am sure people today will die in car wrecks on ice snow covered roads.

Carol has already left for Covenant PCA. I have been sitting in our dining room waiting it out.

Late this morning our son Caleb and his wife Emily with their little girl Josie Joy are driving over from Grand Rapids for brunch.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. Carol was already up when I got up reading her Bible.

Last night I watched a taped movie and went to bed early. All I have attempted to read today is 'Moral Reflections on the Book of Job' Volume 4 Books 17-22 by Gregory the Great. I am almost finished reading the novel 'Blindness' by Henry Green. I am thinking of going back and trying to finish a novel I was reading awhile back titled, 'The Night Ocean' a novel by Paul La Farge.

Not much else to report. I am really not a busy individual. I am waiting it. Existence keeps decaying faster and faster. It will soon be over. Well I will close since I am falling asleep.

It is in the flow of the will of a sovereign God 12:09 PM Saturday afternoon. Here in West Michigan it is a cold snowy gray day. Winter is upon us once again.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. Carol was already up when I got up, she was getting ready to go shopping downtown. I got myself a cup of coffee and then made myself a pot of oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read for morning worship from a book titled, 'Moral Reflections on the Book of Job' Volume 4 Books 17-22 by Gregory the Great Translated by Brian Kerns, OCSO.

I have not much else today but read my books and dozed. It is too cold and snowy to leave the house. I did fed our birds this morning while Carol was out. She is now home doing stuff in the kitchen. She made a cranberry cake for tomorrow when our oldest son Caleb and his family visit us for early an brunch. Caleb and his family leave over in Grand Rapids MI. Caleb is married to Emily and they have one daughter named Josephine Joy. Emily is pregnant with a baby girl and is due in February 2018.

Last night I did nothing but lay around the house and read 'Hebrews, James' Reformation Commentary On Scripture and from a novel titled, 'Blindness' by Henry Green. Carol and I went to bed early. Now it is another day.

I have nothing pressing on my mind this morning. Existence keeps flowing by. I just remembered I made a video this morning while Carol was gone and in this short video I quoted Gregory the Great-

"The one who has been subdued by the love for worldly things by no means has and pleasure in God. The soul can never be without pleasure. It delights either in the lowest things or in the highest. So the more intense the zeal by which it reaches for the highest reality, the greater is the loathing with which it shrinks from the lowest things." Gregory the Great pg.65 Book 18 IX.6 'Moral Reflections on the Book of Job' Volume 4 Books 17-22.

Well I suppose I will close to drift through the day. I plan to sit in silence and pray. I plan to read some more of 'Blindness' a novel by Henry Green and maybe something else. It is all up in the air.

"[8] Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
[9] And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
[10] That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
[11] If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead." Phil. 3:8-11
