he will inaugurate a New Covenant in his blood

It is 10:25 AM Sunday morning. A cold windy gray morning here in West Michigan. It might snow today.

I got up this morning around 6:48 AM. When I got up I let Rudy out of his crate, went outside and got one of our two Sunday newspapers off our cracked cement driveway came in the house and made a pot of coffee. After making coffee I toasted myself a raisin muffin and walked over to our main computer. I messed with our main computer for awhile, listened to the music of Woven Hand on YouTube. Next I wrote in my paper diary and read "The Colossus Of Maroussi" by Henry Miller. Carol got up, looked through the Sunday morning newspapers and then she made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast.

Carol left for Covenant PCA around 9:55 AM. I have been wandering the house trying to not fall back asleep. I have not been sleeping soundly lately.

Last night I read my books and watched television. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM and now it is another day.

I can not stay awake so I will close to go back to bed. Maybe I will write some more later when I feel more awake.

a reminder that he had wasted his life

This day has gone by for me quite normal. I had a normal morning. I did go back to bed this morning around 10:38 AM and got up when I heard my wife arrive home from church at 12 o'clock Noon. We ate lunch and I drifted quietly through the afternoon wandering the house and reading Henry Miller's book "The Colossus Of Maroussi" and also reading "Making Things Better" a novel by Anita Brookner.

Carol and I took Rudy for a walk at Hawthorn Pond Natural Area and then drove over to Window on the Waterfront for another walk before coming home. So has gone existence. Carol went to church this evening and I had been reading "Making Things Better".

Tomorrow is a Monday and I believe we are going grocery shopping in the morning. I need to call my dentist because Saturday while I was eating a piece of hard candy a broke off a side of one of my teeth. My teeth are covered in metal.

Well I will close to have a cup of tea and wait for darkness to cover me.

Have you ever wondered if you have wasted your life. As a Christian I believe my life is the all according to the will of God my heavenly Father. All I have ever wanted as a Christian is to do the will of God. One can not speak of a wasted life if all one has sought to do is to live for the glory of God. I remember these words of the Lord Jesus Christ, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing" John 15:5.

I am living the abundant life. I am experiencing the life of Christ. I am richly blessed with all the riches of Christ. The apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians 1 verse 3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ."
