It is 9:57 AM in space and time on a Sunday morning. Time is filled with space. How to fill up time with space? How to fill time with activity that will land me in the heavenly Canaan? Activity and movement is always going on in Time. So here I sit down in the basement writing in my diary listening to the music of Red House Painters. Carol is about to leave for Covenant PCA (church). It has been a long time since I have sat in a PCA building on a Sunday. I am not PCA. I want to be a lover of God (the Trinity).
I woke up early this morning. I woke up because I was tired of dreaming. Carol had gotten up at 4 o'clock AM this morning. When I got up Carol was cooking meat loaf for a meal. I went and sat in our living room near Rudy to wake up. I sat there in the living room struggling to wake up to another day. I finally got up and walked to the kitchen and got a cup of coffee.
Carol cooked a big Sunday breakfast for us. I ate and looked through the Sunday morning newspapers. The world is going to the dogs. "We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true-even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life." 1 John 5:19,20
Carol has left for church and the wall clock tells me the time is now 10:08 AM.
This morning Carol and I took Rudy for a walk at Window on the Waterfront (near downtown Holland). Carol wanted to see the tulips. So we went for a walk and took pictures of the tulips. The tulips have not all come up yet. We need a couple of days of warm Spring weather for the tulips to all open up.
Yesterday I mainly wandered the house and read "The Magic Mountain" by Thomas Mann. I am coming to the end of this novel. I am still thinking of reading "Ulysses" a novel by James Joyce. I could also read Roberto Bolano's novel "2666" (also Bolano's novel "The Savage Detective" I could read during the Last Days).
I watched some television last night, but went to bed early and read "The Magic Mountain" till late.
So my life goes by normal. I have much to be thankful for in this sin cursed world.
What I should do is read The Book of Judges/OT and pray for the Lord to save my household and mankind.
I lost my train of thought searching for a verse in the Gospel of John. I always have the Word of God on my mind. I SEE Reality through the eyes of the Bible. I want to have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16 "But we have the mind of Christ").
I will close to regroup.
