It is 2:32 PM Monday afternoon and it is cold. Where is Spring? We had a lot of cold, gray, and rainy days lately. It is hard to believe Spring will soon come to a close and we will be in the Summer Season once again.

Today I volunteered at the local library used books store The Book Nook. When I got home Carol had just gotten home from having coffee with one of her cousins. I cooked a meal for lunch and then ate it. After eating lunch I cleaned the kitchen and now I am writing in my online diaries. Carol went to bed, because she works tonight.

I have no plans for the rest of the day. I am extremely tired so I will close to drift.

At the Book Nook there was no business so I mainly wandered the bookstore and read from a book titled, 'The Beauty of The Lord-Theology As Aesthetics' by Jonathan King Foreword by Kevin J. VanHoozer. I brought home from the Book Nook these two old used books to add to our Family Library-

Last night I read till bedtime from a book titled, 'The Bookshop of the World: Making and Trading Books in the Dutch Golden Age' by Andrew Pettergree & Arhur der Weduwen.

I am not sure what I will read this afternoon since I am completely blown away! I need to sleep.

Josie & Carol

Cora, Josie, & Carol

Cora
It is 12:33 PM Sunday morning in the order of reality in the Divine Economy. A rainy gray damp humid afternoon here in Western Michigan. Everything is blooming right now.

Carol and I both got up this morning around 6:10 AM to face another day. We exchanged Anniversary cards I LOVE YOU. I pray Carol and I celebrate many more wedding anniversaries in the unknown future. Does death dissolve the marriage covenant?

So Carol and I got up. Carol made a fresh pot of coffee and I ate breakfast. Carol read her Bible and I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'Romans Disarmed: Resisting Empire/Demanding Justice' by Sylvia C. Keesmaat & Brian J. Walsh. I also messed with our main computer this morning and filmed a video for my Youtube channel. Carol went downtown this morning and got Sunday newspapers.

Carol left for Covenant PCA around 9:55 AM and she plans after church to go to an Open House and to visit Pam. Sometime this afternoon Carol and I will go down the street to have hamburgers with our oldest son and his family. I am sure Carol will go back to Covenant PCA this evening.

Last night I read most of the evening from a book titled, 'The Beauty of The Lord: Theology As Aesthetics' by Jonathan King. Carol and I watched taped television shows. Carol went to bed and I stayed up to read and write in my paper diary. Now it is another day, a new week.

Well not much else to report this afternoon. I will close to sit and doze.

I failed to mention that yesterday afternoon Caleb, Cora, and Ollie the puppy came by around Noontime. Emily was at a meeting yesterday most of the morning. Josie spent the night with us Friday night.

'The Most of S. J. Perelman' by S. J. Perelman
It is 6:50 AM Sunday morning here in West Michigan. Carol and I celebrate today our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Where did all those 40 years go? It absolutely amazes me realizing Carol and I have been married 40 years! Time has flown by so quickly! It would be a blessing if Carol and I had ahead of us another 40 years of marriage, but that is not possible. If Carol and I live to be a 100 years old we could have another 33 years together in this earthly life. Our days are in the hands of the Lord.
