He gives them the thirst, and he gives them the drink

It is 8:19 AM Saturday morning here in West Michigan. It is still dark outside. I am trying to wake up to this day.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up Carol, Emily, and Josie were up. Carol had cooked pigs-in-the blankets so I got a cup of coffee and ate one pig for a morning meal.

Caleb got up soon after I did. So the morning goes by. I am tired, but I keep will going. I volunteer at the Herrick Public Library used books store this morning. The day will go by.

I did write in my paper diary this morning. I messed with baby Josie this morning. Carol got an Smart phone or is it a I Phone? Do not know for sure what kind of phone she got. Caleb has been showing her how everything on the phone works. We are going to get a new computer today.

Last night is a blur to me. We got take out pizza last night. Caleb and Emily went to bed early. Carol took care of baby Josie during the night. I went to bed early last night. Sometimes I feel I am just coasting through time. I can always gather my wits next week. I am sure I am still there someplace deep inside my body.

The last book I attempted to read last night was titled, "Moral Reflections on the Book of Job" Volume 1 "Preface and Books 1-5" by Gregory the Great.

Well I will close to feel wasted. Existence keeps zooming by! No way out.

I am home from 2:30 PM Saturday afternoon in the flow. I am home from the library book nook. The library used books store was normal. While at the book nook I read from a book titled, "My Times of My Life and My Life with The Times" a memoir by Max Frankel. I brought home from the book nook three used books to ADD to our book collection-

"A Dead Hand: A Crime In Calcutta" a novel by Paul Theroux

"The Portable Jung" Edited by Joseph Campbell

"The Artist, the Philosopher, and the Warrior: Da Vinci, Machiavelli, And Borgia And The World They Shaped" by Paul Strathern

When I got home Caleb had already set up the new main computer. I am right now sitting in my main study using my newest lap top computer. Carol uses the main computer more than I do.

When I got home I ate lunch and played with our granddaughter Josie. Carol got up from a nap. Existence keeps flowing by.

I will close to listen to the rain and the wind blow. I am tired.

I am sitting in my main study feeling absolutely wasted! I am falling asleep. And it is only 5:25 PM Saturday evening. Everybody is in the living room talking. I tried watching college football, but my mind could not focus. I need to feel empty. I have eaten too much junk today. I need to go on a fast next week. Tomorrow is a Sunday. We found out today that Caleb, Emily, and Josie are leaving early Monday morning for the Detroit International Airport and flying back to their home in Boston Mass.. Tomorrow Caleb and Emily have an appointment to look at a house to rent in Grand Rapids MI. Carol and I will babysit baby Josie while they are in GR.

I have been reading when able from a book titled, "God Has Spoken: A History Of Christian Theology" by Gerald Bray. Earlier I did mess with our new computer. Carol bought today a Dell desk top computer at Staples. Now she has a new computer and a new iphone. I plan to keep using my lap top in my main study. I kind of like it in this study writing words for billions of people to read and ponder.

I should bush my teeth and lay down in the dark in our bedroom. The lower level is now where Caleb and Emily abide while they are visiting us with little Josie. This house Caleb and Emily might rent has four bedrooms and a study. Caleb needs a study because his job is on a computer (he works from home).

Well I will close to feel blown out. Soon it will be over.
