the mind of a wise man is always free from every kind of disorder

It is 10:10 AM Monday morning in the divine flow. It is a sunny cold day here by Lake Michigan. It is a 11 degrees right now out there in the Wasteland. A cold day in Hell.

Carol left around 20 minutes ago to kook up with Emily and Josie in GR. I stay home to wait it out. I am not going anywhere. There is no mountains to climb. I remember these words of the apostle Paul, "Know ye not, that they which run in a race, run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air; But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a cast-away" 1 Corinth. 9:24-27.

I got up this morning around 7:47 AM. When I got up I found Carol in the kitchen making raisin muffins. I got a cup of coffee and messed with our main computer. The world is in a terrible mess. Carol made oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal and then wrote in my paper diary. I live such an intense hectic life!

I have been reading this morning for devotions a book titled, "God Has Spoken: A History of Christian Theology" by Gerald Bray.

Last night I watched television with Carol and went to bed around 11:15 PM. There was no perfume in the air when I went to bed.

Well I will close to wait it out. I am not a friend of this corrupt world system. "Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins" James 5:20.

It is 10:16 PM Monday night in the flow of existence. Another day of my life has gone by the wayside. Life continues on without my permission.

This evening I watched television from 8 PM till 10 PM. I renewed my Flickr account not realizing it is now free.

I drove my wife to work around 7:48 PM tonight. Lord willing I won't die in my sleep tonight and will awake tomorrow morning. If I awake tomorrow morning when my wife calls for me to come and get her I will be able to do that errand. Life is not something we can count on.

I really did not do much today. I mainly read during the afternoon hours a novel titled, "Almanac Of The Dead" by Leslie Marmon Silko. The day went by like a classic movie.

Carol got home from Grand Rapids around 3 o'clock PM and went to bed and slept till 6:20 PM. Emily and Josie are doing fine. Maybe Emily and Josie will drive over to our place this coming Wednesday.

Not much else to report. In the mail today I receive materials from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary/Dutch Puritan American Spirituality.

"What is Resurrection?" a pamphlet by Joel R. Beeke

"How Men Lead Their Families" a pamphlet by Joel R. Beeke

"Puritan Reformed Journal" January 2015 Volume 7 Number 1

Well I suppose I will close to brush my teeth and get ready to hit the sack. Tomorrow will soon be here screaming for blood.
