to bring redeemed sons into full conformity with the redeeming Son

It is 12:36 PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is 52 degrees and sunny today. It looks like we will not have snow this month. I hope we have a mild winter this year (the year 2018).

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. My wife was already up preparing to make potato soup. I ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast and then messed with our main computer.

Carol and I went grocery shopping early this morning. When we got home we put away the groceries and I left to go pick up a prescription and to visit local thrift stores.

I did not find any used books this morning at thrift stores to add to our library. I have been reading today when not falling asleep from a book titled, 'Sons in the Son: The Riches and Reach of Adoption in Christ' by David B. Garner.

Yesterday I basically watched professional football all day. I did read a little from my Reformation Commentary on First Corinthians.

Since I am falling asleep I will close to drift through the day. Carol goes back to work tonight, so she will sleep this afternoon. I might sleep also this afternoon since I feel like I am going to pass out from exhaustion.

Tis Not That I Did Choose Thee

’Tis not that I did choose Thee,
For Lord, that could not be;
This heart would still refuse Thee,
Hadst Thou not chosen me.
Thou from the sin that stained me
Hast cleansed and set me free;
Of old Thou hast ordained me,
That I should live to Thee.

’Twas sov’reign mercy called me
And taught my op’ning mind;
The world had else enthralled me,
To heav’nly glories blind.
My heart owns none before Thee,
For Thy rich grace I thirst;
This knowing, if I love Thee,
Thou must have loved me first.
