the sectarians see themselves as the vanguards of a renewed Israel

It is 7:50 AM Saturday morning in the flow of existence. I got up around 7:05 AM this morning. I got up to find that Carol had gotten up during the night and gone to bed in our daughter's old bedroom. Carol was going to visit a friend today, but he friend called to cancel their visit because he father was dying. So Carol will now be here all day stuck in the house with Rudy and me. Carol is already sick of the winter weather and longs to be outside. I volunteer at the Herrick Public Library used bookstore today from 10 AM till 1 PM. The day will go by like the winter wind.

Last night I read a book I got in the mail yesterday titled, "The Long Voyage: Selected Letters of Malcolm Cowley, 1915-1987" Edited By Hans Bak & Foreword By Robert Cowley.

Not much else to report this morning. It has been raining all night. During the night we could hear sheets of ice sliding off our roof due to the warm weather. This morning it is in the 40's outside. Tomorrow it is suppose to be sunny.

Well I suppose I will close to eat breakfast. Last night I ate for dinner pancakes and sausages. It always amazes me that when Carol and I go to the store and buy a ton of stuff there is never any food to make a meal with at meal times. We should plan out meals throughout the coming week. At the same time I do not like to eat food. I do not like to eat food or sleep. Carol always tells me there is food to eat, but I do not like to cook. I can cook, but I am not into food. I find food boring. I am thankful for food though and do not take any of God's blessing for granted. Carol and I have been richly blessed by the Lord with an over abundance of material blessings.

I am going to close to write in my paper diary and eat something. I will leave here for the library book nook at 9:45 AM.

Breathe on me, breath of God,

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Blend all my soul with Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.
