lover of pleasures more than lovers of God

It is in the death flow 9:52 AM Thursday morning here by Lake Michigan. It is very humid so I have this belief that it is going to rain-it just started raining.

I got up around 6 o'clock AM this morning. I got up made a fresh pot of coffee and messed with our main computer.

When Carol got up I made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. Carol left this morning around 9:30 AM to attend a Woman's Bible Study. I have been wandering the house.

I did write a few pages in my paper diary this morning. I read some of William Perkin's Exposition of the General Epistle of Jude. Not much has happened thus far to make it into the national newspaper headlines.

Last night was like any other night.

I have nothing to do today. I did make a video last night for my BookTube channel. Well I suppose I will close to drift through Time.

This morning our daughter Beth and her family leave for a new start in Denver Colorado. May the Lord grant them traveling mercies. Carol is already planning to fly out to Denver this coming August for a visit. I like to go but I am scared the death of flying in a plane. I am scared of everything, because we live in a dangerous world. There are killers every where ready to bounce on you.

"[1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
[4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
[6] For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
[7] Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
[8] Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
[9] But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was." 2 Timothy 3:1-9

'The Path Of Christianity: The First Thousand Years' by John Anthony McGuckin

Now things might change as I drift through next month, but right now the above books are the ones I want to read.

I might find something else to get into as the month of July progresses, but that is all unknown to me tonight.

Well could be written, but I am tired so I will close for now. Tomorrow is a Friday in the death march. Do not know what Carol and I will do tomorrow.
