the Bible demythologizes the ancient cosmologies

It is 8:42 AM Friday morning here in West Michigan. It is a sunny day, but outside this morning it is 20 degrees. It is freezing cold! We are entering another Ice Age.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I got up and made a pot of coffee and got oatmeal ready to make when Carol got up. I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary. Carol got up around 7:30 AM and I cooked for breakfast a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. Does one cook oatmeal or boil oats? There are so many mysteries in life to ponder as we speed to a cold grave.

I ate my oatmeal and then read till I came here to write from a book titled, 'Echoes of Exodus-Tracing a Biblical Motif' by Bryan D. Estelle. Now I am writing in my online diaries. This morning I will leave the house around 9:40 AM to volunteer for three hours at our local library used bookstore from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM. Carol plans to visit her elderly friend this morning and take her out for lunch. This day will go by like all other days.

Last night I read my books and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I read last night from these two novels-

'The Royal Family' a novel by William T. Vollmann

'Tomas Jonson Best-Seller' a novel by Gudberger Bergson Translated from the Icelandic by Lytton Smith

I got in the mail yesterday this novel by Godberger Bergson.

Well not much else to report. I do not know where I will walk today. I might just walk around our neighborhood today. I am running out of local places to walk. I do not want to take pictures of the same places I have already taken pictures of.

44 years this month March 21, 1974

My wife Carol has been a nurse now 44 years. All her nursing friends from Nursing School are now retiring. Soon my wife will be retiring from being a professional nurse. My wife's life is speeding by! We will all soon before the Judgment Seat of Christ Jesus.

In this photo of my wife on the day she graduated from Nursing School is her mother and her niece Wendy (Wendy will soon be 50 years old.) Carol's parents have passed away.
