It is 1:51 PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is raining as I type these words outside.
I have had a normal day thus far. I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. Carol my wife was already up when I got up. I made for breakfast a bowl of oatmeal and also a fresh pot of coffee. Carol ate breakfast and then left to do errands.
I messed with our main computer after breakfast and then wrote in my paper diary.
I left for the library used bookstore The Book Nook around 9:40 AM to volunteer from `10 AM till 1 PM. The Book Nook was normal meaning it was not slow and it was not busy. When not helping people I read some more of the novel 'Everybody's Fool' by Richard Russo.
When I got home from the Book Nook Carol was sitting in the living room. I ate lunch and Carol went to bed for day since she works the next couple of nights. There is no mail today because it is President's Day.
I brought home from the Book Nook two used books-
'Nine Lives: In Search of the Sacred in Modern India' by William Dalrymple
'The People Called Shakers: A Search For The Perfect Society' by Edward Deming Andrews (I found out when I got home I already had this book in our book collection.)
Last night is too long ago for me to remember right now. Well I will close to drift through the rest of the day.
" But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
 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;
 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit." Ephesians 2:13-22
