countless local wars as barbarian tribes fought for dominance

It is in the death flow here in West Michigan 12:27 PM Saturday afternoon. The sun is shining this afternoon and it is not burning hot outside. Also there are no snipers shooting at people as they flee the city.

I have had a normal middle class day. I just finished eating two hotdogs for lunch. Before that I was out in my old Dodge van visiting thrift stores in search of used books to Add to our library. I found these used books this morning-

'The BFG' children's book by Roald Dahl

'The Compleat Angler' by Izaak Walton & Charles Cotton

'Elephas Maximus: A Portrait Of The Indian Elephant' by Stephen Alter

'The Last Of The Savages' a novel by Jay McInerney

'Imperial Bedrooms' a novel by Bret Easton Ellis

'Selected Writings' By Frederic Remington Introduction by Peggy & Harold Samuels complied by Frank Oppel

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up to find no little Rudy to greet me. I made a pot of coffee and ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I then messed with our main computer, wrote in my paper diary and read for morning worship from a book titled, 'The Benedict Option: A Strategy For Christians In A Post-Christian Nation' by Rod Dreher.

a conversation with Rod Dreher

Carol got home from work 8:44 AM and went to bed around 9:27 AM. So my private little death party keeps rocking.

Last night I made a video for my BookTube channel and read my books late into the night. I read 'Walden' by Thoreau and other stuff.

Well I suppose I will close to face the death squad.

The Carnal Mind is Enmity Against God - A. W. Pink

"[5] For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
[6] For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
[7] Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
[8] So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
[9] But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." Romans 8:5-9
