a fight against terrorism

As I type these words I hear off in the distance a flock of crows cawing. It is a cold gray day here in West Michigan. A good day to sit my a wood burning stuff and write ones last will and testament.

I volunteered today at the Herrick Public Library used books store from 11 o'clock AM till 2:15 PM. I covered for someone today at the library book nook. When not helping people were their used materials I read from a novel titled, "Almanac Of The Dead" by Leslie Marmon Silko.

I brought home from the library used books store three used books to ADD to our library-

"NOS4A2" a novel by Joe Hill

"Party of One: The Loners' Manifesto" essays by Anneli Rufus

"The Kite Runner" a novel by Khaled Hosseini

When I got home from the library book nook I ate lunch and then wrote in my paper diary. My wife is sleeping this afternoon, because she goes back to work tonight.

I feel tired, but not in the mood to lay down in the lower level this afternoon. I have elected to just sit and wait for night to come falling on top of me.

Last night I watched television and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I read earlier once again from a book titled, "The Gray Notebook" by Josep Pla.

Well I am running on empty so I will close to wait it out.

Being is eternal; existence is temporal

It is now in the flow of reality 5:44 PM Tuesday evening. I will soon wake up my wife so she can get ready to go back to work. She works tonight and tomorrow night then she is off four nights from work.

I have been reading this afternoon “Almanac Of The Dead” a novel by Leslie Marmon Silko. I did not take a nap this afternoon. I am sure I will go to bed early tonight since there is nothing on TV worth watching. Of course I could watch a TV show on our Amazon Prime station.

There is nothing pressing on my mind tonight. I do feel slightly depressed inside, but nothing major. I sometimes hate my Self, which I think is normal. We all I think get sick of living with ourselves. It is a blessing when you totally forget yourself. When you get lost in something like God or love.

Today I was looking back into my Past my days when I was young. Back in those days I had no true understanding of what life was all about. I suppose wisdom or enlightenment comes with age. Now I am 62 years old I look back when I was young and shake my head in disbelief on how blind I was or just plain dumb. I was a prisoner to my flesh/lusts. My lusts blinded me to what was real. I was too caught up satisfying my fleshy desires to really come to terms with reality. I was just a slave to my lusts and not a slave to godly love/Truth. I did not want to look Reality in the face because my lusts wanted me to ruin my soul. I do not know how to explain where I was at when I was young. I date my coming to terms with reality in America when I was working at the Egg Pit. Maybe I am coming into contact with more and more truth Light as I get closer to dying and going to Heaven/New Creation.

Well I got to close to wake up my wife and tell her time to face existence In Christ Jesus.

Jesus, Thine all victorious love

Jesus, Thine all victorious love
Shed in my heart abroad;
Then shall my feet no longer rove,
Rooted and fixed in God.

O that in me the sacred fire
Might now begin to glow;
Burn up the dross of base desire
And make the mountains flow!

O that it now from Heav’n might fall
And all my sins consume!
Come, Holy Ghost, for Thee I call,
Spirit of burning, come!

Refining fire, go through my heart,
Illuminate my soul;
Scatter Thy life through every part
And sanctify the whole.
