It is in the flow of existence 10:03 AM Thursday morning here in West Michigan. It is a cold damp sunny morning.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up made myself oatmeal for breakfast and ate my mush messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read some more of the book, 'Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition: Recovering the Genius of Premodern Exegesis' by Craig A. Carter.

When Carol got home from work this morning I was sitting in the living room dozing. She has gone to bed to sleep a couple of hours. I have been wandering the house not sure what I want to do today. I would like to leave the house and go for a walk someplace since the sun is shining, but there is no where I want to go for a walk at. It is all so ugly out there among the living dead. I could walk around our neighborhood instead of driving someplace for a walk.

Last night I basically listened to music, read, and messed with our main computer till I went to bed. I mainly read all day yesterday the book, 'Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition' by Carter.

Well there is not much else to report this morning. I suppose I will close to drift. I might just sit someplace with my eyes closed to wait for the end.

Here is some literary news-

"Mexican author and translator Sergio Pitol has died. His novels include Mephisto’s Waltz, and he translated many English and Polish authors—Jane Austen, Henry James and Joseph Conrad, Kazimierz Brandys, Witold Gombrowicz—into Spanish."

I have been reading off and on lately a book by Sergio Pitol titled, 'The Art Of Flight' Translated From The Spanish By George Henson.
It is 12 o'clock PM Wednesday Noon here in West Michigan. It is another cold gray day. Still no evidence that it is Spring here where we live out our lives.

I have had thus far a normal day. I got up this morning around 6:30 AM and made myself a portion of oatmeal for breakfast. Since I stopped eating processed cereal I have been losing weight. If I was to just live on oatmeal and fruit I might lose more weight. What I need to do is to stop eating all together. Many many years ago I hardly ate food. I am still not into food, but since being married I have become accustomed to eating food regularly. It scares me how richly we are blessed when it comes to having food to eat. I do not deserve food. Food is a gift a gracious gift from the Creator God.

Basically all I have done today is write in my paper diary and read my new book which is titled, 'Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition: Recovering the Genius of Premodern Exegesis' by Craig A. Carter.

Carol got home around 4 o'clock AM this morning from work and slept till 11:10 AM. She left around 11:35 AM for a class at the hospital. After Carol's class she will come home and go back to bed. She works tonight and then is off for four days. Our lives are rushing by! We are here only for a moment and then we are in the Eternal State heaven or hell.

Last night I made a video and read my books. There is not much else to report this side of Paradise.

I am not sure what I will do next. I should go fed our birds. I am not in the mood to leave the house. I got out these books out of our library this morning to remind me to read and meditate on the Word of God Holy Scripture before I die and face the Final Judgment.

'Reading Scripture With The Reformers' by Timothy George

'Participatory Biblical Exegesis: A Theology of Biblical Interpretation' by Matthew Levering

'Scripture As Real Presence: Sacramental Exegesis in the Early Church' by Hans Boersma

Well I will close to face what comes next.

"[10] But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
[11] Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
[12] Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
[13] But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
[14] But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
[15] And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
[16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
[17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
" 2 Timothy 3:10-17

It is 12:24 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is another cold winter day. It has been snowing all night and all day.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up got a cup of coffee and messed with our main computer. I downloaded a video I made last night for my Booktube channel. After downloading a video I read some News and checked my e-mail. After messing with our main computer I made myself a small pot of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal and then had a piece of corn bread with fresh coffee. I then wrote in my paper diary and have been reading all morning and now into the afternoon hours from these two books-

'The Sermon on the Mount and Human Flourishing: A Theological Commentary' by Jonathan T. Pennington

'Studies in Matthew: Interpretation Past And Present' by Dale C. Allison Jr.

I took a break from studying the Bible to write in my online diaries. Time keeps emptying into the Now.

Last night all I remember doing is making a video for my Booktube channel and watching the 10 o'clock News. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. And now it is another day to wait for the End.

Carol worked last night and now sleeping. She works tonight. Well I suppose I will close to watch the birds by our bird feeder and see what comes in the mail this afternoon.
