a sucker punch to the groin

It is in the flow 11:53 AM late Thursday morning. It is going to get in the 90's today here by Lake Michigan. A good day to cook your rotting human flesh in the sun. America is filled with sun worshipers. Let us dance before the sun before we cook in fiery furnace.

This morning I got up at 6:15 AM. When I was walking to the bathroom to wash my face I stepped in dog shit. Rudy sometimes decided to make my life miserable today by shitting before our bathroom door. After cleaning up dog shit I made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. When Carol got up I made us oatmeal for breakfast and then we went grocery shopping.

So the morning has gone by. Not much else to report. It will be 12 o'clock Noon soon. I am extremely tired so I will close. I did read this some more of Volume 1 "Moral Reflections on the Book of Job" Preface and Books 1-5 by Gregory the Great.

I will close to feel out of it. Josiah texted from Grand Rapids telling us they are driving back to Holland.

We had a good time celebrate Josiah's birthday last night in Grand Rapids. We were home by 8:30 PM and we went to bed early. Yesterday I mainly read the novel "Pinkerton's Sister" by Peter Rushforth.

It is 5:58 PM Thursday evening in the death flow. Outside flesh is cooking at 93 degrees. In the light one can not hide.

I have had a normal day. Carol, Josiah, and Hannah went downtown to watch street performers. I stayed home because I do not like crowds. I have been reading the novel, "Pinkerton's Sister" by Peter Rushforth.

I do not remember doing much else today. Carol and I did go grocery shopping this morning. Josiah and Hannah came back here for the night. They are going back to Grand Rapids tomorrow to hang out with Caleb. Carol works Friday and Saturday. I plan to go into a contemplative state Friday and Saturday. I am waiting to go to Heaven.

I did take a nap this afternoon. So existence has gone by. I have no plans for the evening hours. I suppose I will close to wait for darkness to come.

lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth

"[19] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
[20] But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
[21] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
[22] The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
[23] But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
[24] No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
[25] Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
[26] Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
[27] Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
[28] And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
[29] And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
[30] Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
[31] Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
[32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
[33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
[34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." Matthew 6:19-34
