leaving the ruined Temple means being debarred from the Tree of Life

It is 8:37 AM Monday morning in the death flow. Outside this morning it is damp and cloudy. Maybe we will see the Son today. Carol is out walking Rudy right now. My wife tries to walk five miles a day.

I got up this morning around 7:34 AM. When I got up I made oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. I got into our dentist office at 11:40 AM to have one of my crowns glued back on.

Carol has to finish emptying the kitchen of stuff so the builders can start ripping out the kitchen cabinets this afternoon.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I will help Carol packed everything in our kitchen. We have to get a local thrift store haul away our stove. Our stove is not that old but Carol wanted a new stove to go with her new kitchen.

Last night I read "The Village: A History Of Greenwich Village" by John Strausbaugh and watched taped TV shows with my wife.

I also read yesterday the book, "The Day The Revolution Began: Reconsidering the Meaning of Jesus's Crucifixion" by N.T. Wright. I did not go anywhere yesterday.

I suppose I will close to face what is coming down the turn pike.

"[33] And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
[34] Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
[35] And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
[36] And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
[37] But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
[38] And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
[39] Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
[40] And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
[41] And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
[42] And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
[43] And he took it, and did eat before them.
[44] And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
[45] Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
[46] And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
[47] And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
[48] And ye are witnesses of these things.

[49] And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
[50] And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
[51] And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
[52] And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
[53] And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen." Luke 24:33-53

who needed to see the national legends and symbols brought to life

It is now in the Life Flow 3:53 PM. I know eternal life is flowing through me because I am in Christ Jesus and Jesus Christ is in me. He is the Vine and I am one of the branches. The Christian doctrine of mystical union is what I am writing about. How many Christians know with heart knowledge they are in union with Christ Jesus the Savior?

I went to my dentist appointment at 10:35 AM. My dentist glued my crown back on. I made an appointment to have this crown replaced in December 2016. After the dentist I visited two local thrift stores to look at their used books. I found these used books today to ADD to our library-

"The Heart Of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend" biography by Bob Drury & Tom Clavin

"Gun Guys: A Road Trip" Firearm ownership/non-fiction by Dan Baum

"The Private Lives Of The Impressionists" biography/Art History by Sue Roe

"The Confederate Republic: A Revolution Against Politics" Civil War/American History by George C. Rable

"Bitter Fame: A Life of Sylvia Plath" biography by Anne Stevenson (I found out when I got home I already at this biography in my Sylvia Plath Collection. I will take this biography of the poet Sylvia Plath to the library book nook this coming Saturday if I am not dead.)

This afternoon I have been reading, "The Village: A History Of Greenwich Village" by John Strausbaugh. This morning I got out of our library this book to mention in a BookTube video, "New York 1913: The Armory Show And The Paterson Strike Pageant" by Martin Green.

I will close to read and wait.

"[1] I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
[2] Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
[3] Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
[4] Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
[5] I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
[6] If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
[7] If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
[8] Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
[9] As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
[10] If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
[11] These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
[12] This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
[13] Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
[14] Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 15:1-14

"[7] Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
[8] He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
[9] In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
[10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
[11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
[12] No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us." First John 4:7-12
