fornicators and adulterers God will judge

It is 8:35 AM Wednesday morning in the flow. I have been up since 5:35 AM this morning. Outside it is 37 degrees and gray. I already miss the warm days of Autumn.

I have had thus far a normal morning. Carol left around 8 o'clock AM to have her car repaired/a minor problem. I have been messing with our main computer and listening to the new Mouse on Mars album.

I have been reading this morning for morning worship a book titled, "Building a Godly Home" Volume 1 'A Holy Vision for Family Life' written by William Gouge (1575-1653). Gouge and his wife had 13 children. Carol and I have known families with 10 children. One of Carol's Aunts had 10 children. My mother had five children, I am the oldest. I have two sisters and two brothers. Carol and I are thinking of visiting next year my oldest sister Robin who lives in Maryland. My other sister Danielle visited us a couple of years ago, she lives in California. My youngest brother Robert lives in Texas and my other brother Mike lives in Washington D.C./Maryland.

Last night we watched television and went to bed early. I read before going to sleep a book titled, "Reappraisals: Reflections On The Forgotten Twentieth Century" essays by Tony Judt. Yesterday I received by UPS a book by Tony Judt titled, "Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945". I also received the second volume of "Building a Godly Home' Volume 2 'A Holy Vision for a Happy Marriage' by William Gouge. We all should have a holy vision for a blessed marriage. Sad to know today the marriage bed is profaned. "Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge" Hebrews 13:4.

Well I suppose I will close to face the new day.

"[12] And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
[13] I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
[14] Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
[15] For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
[16] I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
[17] And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
[18] For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
[19] And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
[20] He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus." Rev. 22:12-20
