finds God in the simple ground of its own being

It is 9:23 AM Monday morning here by Lake Michigan. Outside it is 20 degrees, but the sun is shining.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. When I got up I let Rudy out of his crate and made coffee. Next I messed with our main computer and then fixed myself breakfast. After having breakfast I cleaned the kitchen and wrote in my paper diary. Now I am writing in my blogs.

Last night I watched television for a couple of hours. Carol called me last night around 9 o'clock PM. I went to bed my usual time and now it is another day.

I do not plan to do anything today but read my books and wander the house. Existence keeps going by.

It is 6:40 PM Tuesday night. I had another super quiet day. I did not go anywhere or really do anything. I basically wrote in my diary, read, and wandered the house.

I did take a short nap this afternoon from 2 o'clock PM till 3:45 PM.

I plan watch television tonight and go to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I have nothing to do tomorrow. Existence keeps speeding by.

I got two new books in the mail today. These books will enable me to study the Acts (New Testament).

"Acts" [Baker Exegetical Commentary On The New Testament] by Darrell L. Bock

"A Theology Of Luke And Acts: God's Promised Program, Realized for All Nations" by Darrell L. Bock [Biblical Theology Of The New Testament]

Well I suppose I will close to wait it out.

"[29] Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
[30] Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
[31] He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
[32] This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
[33] Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
[34] For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
[35] Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
[36] Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
[37] Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
[38] Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Acts 2:29-38
