"which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all" Ephesians 1:20-23

It is in the flow of the Plan of God for the cosmos 9:48 AM Monday morning here West Michigan. Outside it is snowing and it is cold.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up I found my wife making sugar cookies. I made myself a pot of oatmeal. Carol left this morning to have breakfast with a friend and then to visit another friend in a Rest Home. She took cookies to give to these friends. My wife at this time of year makes tons of sugar cookies and peanut brittle to give to family and friends. My wife is constantly giving. There is joy in giving.

After Carol left around 7:55 AM I fed the birds and wrote in my paper diary. I then made video for my Booktube channel and have been reading from these books this morning for devotions-

'God has Spoken in his Son: A biblical theology of Hebrews' by Peter T. O'Brien [New Studies In Biblical Theology]

'Hebrews, James' New Testament XIII [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Ronald K. Rittgers

There is not much else going on right now. I have nothing to do today but wait.

Last night Caleb, Emily, and Josie Joy left around 5:25 PM for their home in Grand Rapids. Carol and I watched professional football. Carol went to bed early and I wandered the house till I got sleepy. I went to bed around 10:30 PM and now it is another day. Existence keeps zooming by full speed.

I will close to watch the snow fall and to seek the Lord.

"[1] I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
[2] My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
[3] O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
[4] I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
[5] They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
[6] This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles." Psalm 34:1-6

Yamaha CD-C600BL 5-Disc CD Changer (Black)

It is in the flow of this day 4:24 PM a cold snowy Monday here in West Michigan. This day has gone by like a slow icy cold winter wind. It seems I have been up forever! I can't seem to get into anything today. I am completely out of it. Do not know why. Weird.

I broke my Yamaha Natural Sound Compact Player CDC 5-Disc player this afternoon. It is a long complex story how it happened. So I had to buy myself a new one, which was a bummer. But I had to get a new Yamaha CD-C600BL 5-Disc CD Changer (Black) because I have a huge CD collection and I listen to music when I get tired of silence and listening to my inner voice.

I really have done nothing today but wander the house and watch birds from our kitchen window. Carol was gone all morning and got home around 12:30 PM. She went to bed to sleep this afternoon, because she works tonight. She works the next three nights.

I have been trying to read this afternoon from a book titled, 'Schlesinger: The Imperial Historian' biography by Richard Aldous.

Like I wrote I am out of it. Maybe I am already feeling the effects of extreme Winter weather today. I will have to drive Carol to work tonight since she does want to dig our car out of the snow when she gets out of work in the morning.

Well I will close to drift into the night time hours.

I bought my present stereo in February 2012.
