the New World

It is in the flow of existence here where I am 1:38 PM Friday Eastern Standard Time. It is a hot day so we shut the house up and turned on the central air system.

I got up this morning in a cold sweat and we went out for breakfast to celebrate my birthday. After breakfast we went grocery shopping. When we got home from grocery shopping we put away the supplies and I left to do errands and to visit thrift stores/celebrate my birthday by buying old used books/my hobby.

I found these used books today to ADD to our book collection.

There is not much else to report this afternoon. I went to bed and read late into the night a book titled, "Forbidden Territory And Realms Of Strife" memoir by Juan Goytisolo. I slept poorly and was up around 6:30 AM this morning.

I will close to face what comes next.

(This afternoon UPS delivered a book I had ordered from Amazon pre-ordered titled, "The Love of God: A Canonical Model" by John C. Peckham.)

It is now in the flow of Now 8:35 PM Friday night Eastern Standard time. I had a normal day, which was a divine blessing.

I spent the day mainly doing nothing. After coming home from errands and visiting thrift stores I mainly read my books and wrote in my diary. It was a quiet afternoon. I mainly read this afternoon the book I got today from Amazon titled, "The Love of God: A Canonical Model" by John C. Peckham. I got out these two books from the lower level this afternoon to look at.

"God Is Impassible And Impassioned: Towards a Theology of Divine Emotion" by Rob Lister

"Nothing Greater, Nothing Better: Theological Essays on the Love of God" Edited by Kevin J. Vanhoozer

Carol could not sleep this afternoon so she was up early. She is going to feel like crap when she gets home from work in the morning.

This evening our oldest son Caleb and his wife Emily called to wish me a Happy Birthday. I am now officially 63 years old. That reminds me I need to make an appointment with my doctor for my yearly physical next week.

Tomorrow is a Saturday so I have to volunteer once again at the Herrick District Public Library Used Books Store from 10 AM till 1 PM. When I get home tomorrow afternoon Carol will be sleeping. It is suppose to be 90 degrees tomorrow. This morning we shut up the house and turned on the central air system.

Carol made a fresh blueberry pie today for my birthday. It is a blessing having fresh blueberry pie with a couple scoops of cold vanilla ice cream.

I want to go to bed right now, but it is way too early so I am writing and listening to the music of Wovenhand. I suppose I will close to wait to crash. Existence keeps speeding by.

"[28] And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
[29] For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
[30] Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
[31] What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
[32] He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
[33] Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
[34] Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
[35] Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
[36] As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
[37] Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
[38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
[39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:28-39
