the divine shape of history

It is 10:13 AM Wednesday morning in the rate of decay. Outside it is sunny and cold. I am having a typical morning. I am having a difficult time keeping myself awake so I decided to talk to myself.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I got up drank coffee made last night and made myself oatmeal for breakfast. I messed with our main computer and then I wrote in my paper diary. I read a little of the book, "A Manifesto for Theological Interpretation" Edited By Craig G. Bartholomew & Heath A. Thomas. Carol got home from work around 8:35 AM. She has gone to bed for the day and Jim the builder is down in the lower rebuilding our second bathroom. So existence is slowly rotting.

Last night I made another video for my BookTube channel, listened to music and read "The Other Paris" by Luc Sante. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. Now it is another day. This afternoon I cover for someone at the library book nook from 3 o'clock PM till 5 o'clock PM.

I got out to read, "The Novel: A Biography" by Michael Schmidt this morning. I am so sleepy! I need to move this old body. Get myself going. Well I will close to face what comes next. It is all beyond my control. God is on the throne.

It is 10:37 PM Wednesday night. It is getting that time when I should go to bed. I pray I get a good nights sleep. Carol is off for four nights and I know I won't get much sleep then. Now is the time to get rested up for existence in a dead American world.

Tomorrow Carol and I celebrate 37 years of being married. Love never dies, but lives on into eternity.

I had a normal day. I did go to the library book nook around 2:55 PM to cover for someone till 5 o'clock PM. While at the book nook we made $2.75 in cash. I bought $2.50 worth of used materials from the book nook today. I bought these used books today at the library used books store-

"The Woman in White" a novel by Wilkie Collins

"The Struggle For Europe: The Turbulent History Of A Divided Continent 1945-2002" by William I. Hitchcock

When I got home it was 5:05 PM. Now it is bed time. I mainly read this evening from the book, "American Smoke: Journeys To The End Of The Light" by Iain Sinclair.

Well, I do not know what else to write so I will close to face the darkness. There is nothing.

"[1] And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.
[2] And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
[3] And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
[4] And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
[5] And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
[6] But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
[7] For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
[8] And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
[9] What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." Mark 10:1-9
