Emily & Josie

This morning our daughter-in-law Emily posted pictures of her with Josie. Next week Emily and Josephine will be visiting us because Emily has a job interview in Grand Rapids. Carol and I look forward to spending time with Emily and little Josie. Emily is married to our oldest son Caleb.

the end of order

It is now in the Flow 1:14 PM Wednesday afternoon. This afternoon the sun is shining, which is a blessing from above.

I got up this morning around 7:05 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I made myself a bowl of oatmeal. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary. As I was writing in my diary my wife came home from work. She went to bed around 9:05 AM and I read from a book titled, "Salvation Applied By The Spirit: Union With Christ" by Robert A. Peterson. Around 10 o'clock AM this morning I left the house since the roads were clear and the sun was shining to visit thrift stores in search of used books to ADD to our library. I found these used books this morning for our book collection-
