those who do not keep the faith will not enter heaven

It is 2:36 PM Monday afternoon in the Flow. It is a sunny day here by Lake Michigan. We are coming to the end of another Summer season here in West Michigan. The trees are already changing color.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. When my wife got up I made us oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and read some of the book, "The Race Set Before Us: A Biblical Theology of Perseverance & Assurance" by Thomas R. Schreiner & Ardel B. Caneday.

Carol left this morning around 9:11 AM for the hospital and I left the house around 9:30 AM to do errands and to visit thrift stores to search for used books to ADD to our library. I bought these used books today-

"The Children's Blizzard" American History by David Larkin

"The God Who Is There: Finding Your Place in God's Story" Biblical Theology by D. A. Carson

"Morality Play" historical fiction by Barry Unsworth

"The Harmony Silk Factory" a novel by Tash Aw

These are the used books I bought today to add to our library. When I got home from wandering the earth I mowed the lawn.

I am tired so I will close to drift.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - 'Distant Sky' (Official Audio)



Let us go now, my one true love
Call the gasman, cut the power out
And we can set out, we can set out for the distant skies
Watch the sun, watch it rising in your eyes

Let us go now, my darling companion
Set out for the distant skies
See the sun, see it rising
See it rising, rising in your eyes

They told us our gods would outlive us
They told us our dreams would outlive us
They told us our gods would outlive us
But they lied

Let us go now, my only companion
Set out for the distant skies
Soon the children will be rising, will be rising
This is not for our eyes
