"[1] God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
[2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
[3] Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
[4] Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they." Hebrews 1:1-4

faith makes everyone equal before God

It is in the death flow 12:33 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan, It is a cold gray windy day. No sunshine today here by Lake Michigan. At least it is not snowing or raining today. We need to count our blessings one by one before the ax falls.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up I found my wife reading her Bible and devotional books in the living room. I got myself a cup of coffee and sat in our dining room waking up to another day during the Last Days. After I woke up I messed with our main computer and then made oatmeal for breakfast for my wife and I. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and read my Reformation Commentary On Scriptures on The Epistle to the Hebrews.

Carol left this morning around 9:30 AM with two of her oldest girlfriends to go out for breakfast and shop. I left this morning to visit local thrift stores to search for used books to add to our library. I found these books-

'At The Bottom Of Everything' a novel by Ben Dolnick

'A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams' non-fiction by Michael Pollan

'The End of the Hunt' a novel by Thomas Flanagan

After visiting local thrift stores I came home to eat a meal and drift through the day. Existence keeps speeding by.

Last night I basically read from a novel by Henry Green titled 'Blindness' and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. Now it is another day to wait for it to happen. I suppose I will close to do what comes next.

Breathe on me breath of God

Breathe on me, breath of God:
fill me with life anew,
that as you love, so I may love
and do what you would do.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until my will is one with yours
to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God;
fulfil my heart's desire,
until this broken part of me
glows with your heavenly fire.

Breathe on me, breath of God;
so shall I never die,
but live with you the perfect life
of your eternity.

Breathe on me breath of God
