he is able continually to answer Satan with Scripture

It is in the flow 10:48 AM Wednesday late morning. It is a cold dark rainy day. This morning we went grocery shopping. I have been up since 5 o'clock AM so I am not functioning normally. I am running on empty today. I was up early because I was having a head pounding dream. Now I am feeling the effects of exhaustion.

I really do not know what to report since my brain is not working this morning.

When I got up this morning I drank coffee made yesterday. When Carol got up around 6 o'clock AM I made for us oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and then put away clean clothes. I caught a chipmunk this morning in our chipmunk trap. We set the chipmunk free this morning while we were out on errands. We set the chipmunk free where I set free a bunch of chipmunks last Summer, which was VanRaalte Farm county park.

Last night I looked at my books and went to bed around 10:15 PM.

I read for devotions this morning from a book titled, "Baptism In The Early Church: History, Theology, and Liturgy in the First Five Centuries" by Everett Ferguson.

Well I will close to feel totally out of it. Everybody from GR will be here this afternoon for lunch.

sublime moment of creative fusion

It is in the time flow 4 o’clock PM Wednesday late afternoon. Outside it is gray and wet. The kids are playing a board game. Carol is feeding Josie mashed potatoes. I am trying to not fall asleep and reading “Leaving The Atocha Station” a novel by Ben Lerner.

It has been a day for me drifting in a fog of exhaustion. I got up too early this morning and I should have taken a nap this afternoon.

I have done nothing today but wander the house seeking to keep myself awake. Carol and I did go grocery shopping this morning. We also did some other errands while we were out driving around.

Nothing came in the mail today. Yesterday I received in the mail these books-

“After The Tall Timber: Collected Nonfiction” Renata Adler

“Sight-Readings: American Fictions” essays by Elizabeth Hardwick

“Words Without Music: A Memoir” by Philip Glass

I do not know what else to report. I will post some family pictures taken last night when we were at Caleb and Emily’s apartment in Grand Rapids.

Keen family
