the Pauline experimental theology

It is 10:07 AM Sunday morning. It is 33 degrees and sunny this morning. A good day to rake leaves and wait for snow fall.

I got up this morning around 6:20 AM and did the usual activities.

Carol left for church around 9:55 AM this morning. She works the next couple of nights.

Not much else to report. I have been reading this morning a book titled, "History and Spirit: The Understanding of Scripture According To Origen " by Henri De Lubac.

Last night I read and watch some college football. I went to bed early. Now it is another day.

Yesterday I basically wandered the house and watched college football. The Library book nook was not super busy yesterday. My friend Tim came into the store and we talked till it was time for him to go to his AA meeting. We might get together this coming Wednesday or Thursday and go for a walk someplace-enjoy the autumn colors before everything turns brown. This week Carol goes up north over night with a friend to visit a friend. She will be back the next day Lord willing. We never know when death will attack.

I suppose I should mention the used books I brought home from the library used books store to add to our library-

"Emile, Or On Education" by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

"Prayer for the Dying" a novel by Stewart O'Nan

"1876" a novel by Gore Vidal

While at the book nook I read a long essay on the techo scene in Berlin Germany in the March 24, 2014 issue of a New Yorker magazine, 'Berlin Nights' The Capital's techo scene'.

Well, I suppose I will close to drift through existence. No way out.

River Bluff Park

Carol and I this afternoon took a long walk at River Bluff Park. We wish it could have been more sunny, but it was nice to be out in the woods.

who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies

When I think about my wife and the kind of woman she is I always remember these words of Proverbs chapter 31.

"[10] Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
[11] The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
[12] She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
[13] She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
[14] She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
[15] She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
[16] She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
[17] She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
[18] She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
[19] She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
[20] She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
[21] She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
[22] She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
[23] Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
[24] She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
[25] Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
[26] She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
[27] She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
[28] Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
[29] Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
[30] Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
[31] Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates." Proverbs 31:10-31
