"[10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
[11] Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
[12] That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
[13] But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
[14] For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
[15] Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
[16] And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
[17] And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
[18] For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
[19] Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
[20] And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
[21] In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
[22] In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit." Ephesians 2:10-22

the inner life of God

It is in the death flow 12:50 PM Tuesday afternoon here in Western Michigan. I never knew when I was a baby that when I would be an old man I would be living near Lake Michigan. I was born in Oakland California August 14, 1952. My mother had me outside of wedlock when she was 17 years old. My mother had sex with a Navy sailor and I was conceived. My mother is dead and I never knew my Dad. I often wonder if when I am in the New Creation will the Lord give me some personal time with my father and mother. I would like to have a chat with my dead parents and ask them why they brought me into the sin cursed world. It must be wonderful to know as a person that when you were conceived you were conceived in holy matrimony/conceived in love and not lust.

I got up this morning (which is a miracle) around 6:30 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. I down loaded this morning a video I made for my BookTube channel. After messing with our main computer I ate a bowl of cereal and then wrote in my paper diary. As I was reading from a book titled, 'The Deep Things Of God how the Trinity Changes Everything' by Fred Sanders. Carol was home from work this morning around 8:28 AM.

After Carol went to bed I decided to go get bird seed and cracked corn for our birds. While out getting bird food I stopped at thrift stores to look for used books to ADD to our library-I found these used books today-

I failed to mention that I also took a walk this morning around Hawthorne Natural Pond Area. While on my walk I took pictures with my newest camera.

Well I will close to face the sinking sun.
