14th-Nov-2019 09:03 am - the mystery of God
It is 8:57 AM Thursday morning here in West Michigan. I assume it is the same time in East Michigan as is here in West Michigan. I really don't know for sure. I know the time is different in Chicago and Denver then it is here. Who has the correct Time? What Time is it really? Does it matter what time it is because in the end Time pays attention no one.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up and immediately cooked myself a big breakfast. I ate breakfast messing with our main computer. I wanted to see if there was any response to the video I filmed last night.

After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read my books on The Revelation of Jesus Christ. After reading books on the Last Things I fed our birds and cleaned the kitchen. I am now waiting for Carol to call me from out West.

I plan to do nothing today. Outside this morning it is cold and there is ice on the ground. Time will go by.

Last night I already talked about in my last video, so why repeat myself. I will close to drink coffee and wait for the phone to ring. I do not have a cell phone. I would never get a cell phone.

I read from these books this morning for devotions-

It is 1:05 PM Wednesday afternoon here in the wilds of Michigan. It is a bitter cold day. There is a coat of snow and ice covering everything outside. It is predicted to rain this coming Friday, so assume the warm rain will melt the ice. Once the ice melts there will be flooding.

So here I sit once again talking to myself. Carol left this morning around 4 o'clock AM to catch a plane ride out to Denver CO to visit our dauther and her family for a week. Carol called this morning around 9:30 AM to tell me she had landed safe in Denver.

I have mainly spent the day wandering the house. I should go take a nap since I have been up since 3 o'clock AM. I did doze for an hour this morning in the living room easy chair.

I have written a couple of pages in my paper diary today. I also read today from a book titled, 'Prisoner Of Love' by Jean Genet. I just remembered I have already written today in my online diaries. Now I know I am tired!

I find when I am alone for long periods of time I become crazy. I talk to myself and write nonsense.

Well since I have already written in my online diaries I will close to feel wasted.

It is 4:08 AM Wednesday morning here in West Michigan. I am up super early because I got up to tell my wife good-bye as she left to drive to the Grand Rapids Airport. This morning Carol flies to Denver CO. to visit our daughter and her family for a week. When Carol left I made myself a fresh pot of coffee and ate plastic waffles for breakfast. I can always go to bed sometime today. Plus last night we went to bed early so I have basically slept six hours. I plan to lay low today anyway. I will sit and listen to silence. It is not snowing right now.

I already wrote a page in my paper diary this morning. I did get off my desk to read this morning a book titled, 'Psalms Old And New: Exegesis, Intertextuality, and Hermeneutics' by Ben Witherington III.

Last night I finally got back into my Flickr site, which was an answer to prayer. The only book I attempted to read last night was a book titled,'Prisoner Of Love' by Jean Genet. I did get in the mail yesterday a used book I had ordered titled, 'Kensington Gardens' a novel by Rodrigo Fresan Translated from the Spanish by Natasha Wimmer.

We did have over for dinner yesterday evening our oldest son Caleb and his family. Caleb lives just down the street from us. Carol wanted to see them before she left for Denver CO.

Well, I suppose I will close to sit and wait for the light of dawn. I doubt if I will see sunlight today. It is predicted to be a cold dark Winter day.

It is 10:47 AM Tuesday morning here in the wild snow country of West Michigan. Outside this morning is a raging Winter storm. We contacted our snow plow man this morning asking when he can come and clear our driveway so we can get out into the dead American world. Our plow man told us he was behind schedule, but would be out sometime this afternoon to dig us out.

This morning I got up around 6:30 AM. Carol told me she had gotten up around 3:15 AM this morning. When I got up I poured myself a plastic glass of apple cider and wandered into our dining area space to drink and pray for a sunny disposition. I hate always feeling like a black stormy cloud inside. Where is the joy of the Lord? Where is my happy face?

Carol wanted to go grocery shopping this morning, so we did that. It was a divine miracle we made it to a grocery store and back in one piece.

I have been basically doing nothing since we got back from grocery shopping. Carol left to get her hair cut and do other errands. Tomorrow morning Carol flies out West for seven days and seven nights.

I have not found the ability to read anything this morning. I did though find the strength to write in my paper diary this morning. I do want to leave behind some last words after I am dead and gone to Heaven.

Last night we watched professional football. Carol went to bed early and I went to bed around 10 o'clock PM. I read last night while watching professional football from a book titled, 'Prisoner Of Love' memoir by Jean Genet Translated from the French by Barbara Bray.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I will watch the snow fall and pray for a quick recovery from this soul sickness.
