the unitive knowledge of God

It is 11:02 AM Sunday morning. It is a cold gray day here by Lake Michigan. I do not know when we will see the sun again. Hopefully we will get some warm weather before Winter.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I got up when I heard Josie waking up in her crib in Beth’s old bedroom. When I heard Josie getting fussy I went in and got her. Josie was not expecting me to get her so she was looking around for her Dad/Caleb or her Mother. I took her down in the lower level so she could see her Daddy. Jose felt better seeing her Dad. We came upstairs and soon Caleb came up and got her morning bottle.

After Josie had her bottle I ate my oatmeal and then played with Josie the rest of the morning. Right now Josie is taking a nap.

I wrote in my paper diary earlier this morning. I want to make a video today for my YouTube channel before the day comes to a close. I am trying to make videos on Wednesday and Sundays. I would like the videos I make on Sundays to be on Christian literature or my Christian life.

Carol called this morning and said she would be home late this afternoon. Caleb and Josie plan to leave this afternoon when Emily’s plane lands at the Grand Rapids Airport.

Last night we watched college football and went to bed around 10 o’clock PM. I can’t remember what I read yesterday. I think the last book I attempted to read was titled, “The Complete Stories of J.G. Ballard”.

I suppose I will close to face the rest of the day.
