getting to the summit brought on godly thoughts, brought intoxication

It is in the death flow 12 o'clock Noon Thursday. I can see sunshine hitting the snow covered roofs. We are getting a break from the snow this afternoon it seems. The Good Lord is in charge. "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God" Psalm 20:7.

I left this morning to go buy bird seed and to visit thrift stores in search of used books. I found these used books today to ADD to our book collection-

"The Summer He Didn't Die" a novel by Jim Harrison

"The Leftovers" A Novel by Tom Perritta

"Savage Beauty: The Life of Edna St. Vincent Millay" biography by Nancy Milford

"Solzhenitsyn: A Biography" by Michael Scammell

"Was" A novel by Geoff Ryman

"The Stone Diaries" A novel by Carol Shields

"The End of Mr. Y" A Novel by Scarlett Thomas

"East Is East" A novel by T. Coraghessan Boyle

"Cancer Ward" A Novel by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Not much else to report this afternoon. I am tired because once again I slept poorly last night. Last night I read late into the night from a titled, "Nabokov In America: On The Road To Lolita" biography by Robert Roper.

This morning for devotions I read my Reformation Commentary on Psalm 20. I picked up my wife when she got out of work at 8:15 AM this morning. My wife is now off four days from work. Our lives are speeding by!

I will close to watch our birds. When I got home I unloaded two sacks of birdseed and one bag cracked corn and then fed the birds. I like watching birds because they are so natural. There is nothing fake about the behavior of birds.
