one way of salvation for the church going back to that time of Adam

It is 12:40 PM Wednesday afternoon here in West Michigan. Once again it is another cold gray damp day. It has been predicted to be sunny tomorrow.

I got up this morning around 5:35 AM. I got up early because of a weird dream that I could not shake off. So I got up to find Carol having morning devotions. I sat near Carol slowly waking up to another day, a new month April 2020.

Carol left for a doctor's appointment around 7:50 AM. I ate breakfast and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read. I also took pictures of my April 2020 diary and posted them. This morning I read from these books for devotions-'Theoretical-Practical Theology: Faith in the Tiune God' Volume 2 by Petrus Van Mastricht, 'Unity And Continuity In Covenant Thought: A Study in the Reformed Tradition to the Westminster Assembly' by Andrew A. Woolsey, and 'The Works of William Perkins' Volume 8. Yesterday I bought Volume 9 of 'The Works of William Perkins'.

Carol and I made a video this morning for my Youtube channel. When we got back from our walk I ate lunch and wrote in my paper diary. Now I am writing in my online diaries. No plans for the rest of this day. In the afternoon and evening hours I have been mainly reading from these two books-'A Novel Bookstore' a novel by Laurence Cosse and 'American Radicals: How Nineteenth-Century Protest Shaped The Nations; by Holly Jackson.

Well I suppose I will close to drift.

2. How do you organize your library?

3. Do you ever get the urge to re-organize your library in a different way?

4. Who’s your favorite small/finer press publisher?

5. Can you recall every book you have in your library? Or, are there books you find on your shelves that seem to have just showed up?

6. Do you collect bookmarks?

the original earth was void

It is 11:21 AM late Tuesday morning on the last day of March 2020. Tomorrow will be April the 1st 2020. What will April 2020 be like in the history of the world/mankind. Will this Pandemic slow down and in time disappear?

I got up this morning around 6:20 AM. I have spent the morning writing in my paper diary and reading my books. Right now I am reading from a book titled, 'Our Reasonable Faith: A Survey Of Christian Doctrine' by Herman Bavinck Translated by Henry Zylstra.

Carol is sleeping presently, she said this morning that the hospital was not busy. All we do is see if in the next two weeks the Coronavirus hits us here in West Michigan. Carol is now off eight nights from work so I do not have to worry about her getting exposed to COVID-19 at the hospital.

These days are extremely quiet since we are in shut down mode. I am afraid to leave the house and also all the thrift stores are closed. so I can't go searching for used books to add to our library.

Last night I mopped the floors, read from a novel titled, 'A Novel Bookstore' by Laurence Cosse, and filmed a video for my Youtube channel. I went to bed around 11:10 PM but did not fall asleep till sometime after Midnight.

Well I suppose I will close to drift into the afternoon hours. I will continue to read this afternoon the novel, 'A Novel Bookstore'.

'The Wonderful Works of God' by Herman Bavinck

'A Novel Bookstore' a novel by Laurence Cosse Translated from the French by Alison Anderson

COVID-19 Update

"For His glorification of Himself, too, God does not need the world, for it is not the creature who is independently and self-sufficiently exalting His honor; rather, it is He Himself who by means of the creature or without him glorifies His own name and revels in Himself. God, therefore, never seeks out the creature to find something there that He is lacking. No, the whole world in its length and breadth is for Him a mirror in which He sees His excellencies at play. He always remains resting in Himself as the highest good, and He remains eternally blessed by His own blessedness." Herman Bavinck 'The Wonderful Works of God' pg. 151
