man was made to contemplate the uncreated Light

It is 11:49 AM late Monday morning in the holy roll flow. I am rocking and rolling.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. My wife was already up cooking and baking. Carol is getting food prepared to eat when Caleb, Emily and Josie visit this week for a couple of days. Caleb is our oldest son, he is 33 years old. He will be 34 years old in January 2015. Caleb, Emily and Josie live right now in Boston Mass. Emily is interviewing for a job here in West Michigan.

This morning Carol and I went grocery shopping. After we put away the groceries I decided I would take Rudy for a walk at Window on the Waterfront city park, but my old Dodge van would not start. I had AA Auto Service come and start it and then drove it to Maplewood Auto to have it looked over. Carol right now is at a meeting at the hospital. She works tonight so she will sleep this afternoon. Existence keeps flowing by.

I have no plans for the day. I will drift through the day in silence.

Last night I watched professional football and read from a book titled, "Lectio Divina: The Medieval Experience of Reading" by Duncan Robertson. Carol went to bed early last night. I got to bed around 11 o'clock PM. Now it is another day. "Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure" Phil. 2:12,13.

It is 4:40 PM late Monday afternoon. It is already getting dark outside. Right now it is rain ice snow water. I am glad I am not getting off some low paying job and having to drive home in this dangerous winter weather. I am sure some people will die tonight driving home from work. All the time people are dying and going into a fixed eternal state. I have burning in my heart a longing to be with the Lord. "Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith" Phil. 3:8,9.

I just got back from picking up my old Dodge van from the auto repair shop. My van needed a new battery, nothing major. Carol took her car in this morning for an oil change before we went grocery shopping.

I spent the afternoon messing with our main computer, writing in my paper diary and reading my books. Not much else to report. I might watch tonight a professional football game. I am sure I will go to bed early tonight. Existence keeps speeding by!

Today I mainly read from these two books-

"Lectio Divina: The Medieval Experience of Reading" by Duncan Robertson

"Moral Reflections on the Book of Job" Volume 1 "Preface and Books 1-5" by Gregory the Great [Translated by Brian Kerns, OCSO

Well I will close to look at a book titled, "Reading To Live: The Evolving Practice of Lectio Divina" by Raymond Studzinski, OSB.
