the skull crushing seed of the woman

It is 9:56 AM Saturday morning here in West Michigan. It is a icy cold day. I expect it to snow today.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up made myself some oatmeal and made a fresh pot of coffee. It is the simple things that makes life bearable. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer.

After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read for awhile from a book titled, 'God's Glory In Salvation Through Judgment" A Biblical Theology' by James M. Hamilton. Carol called around 8:50 AM telling me she was ready to come home after working 12 hours.

So the morning has gone by. After Carol went to bed this morning I fed the birds and now I am writing in my online diaries.

Last night after I drove Carol to work I made a video and read till my bedtime from a novel titled, "Darkmans' by Nicola Barker.

Today I will watch professional football playoffs. Carol works tonight. Existence keeps zooming by faster and faster!

I will close to drift.

"[18] Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
[19] If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
[20] But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
[21] How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
[22] Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
[23] Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
[24] Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
[25] And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
[26] And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellers as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
[27] Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
[28] And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed
." Isaiah 1:18-28
