'Edith Wharton An Extraordinary Life' An Illustrated Biography by Eleanor Dwight
It is in the death flow 10:55 AM Saturday morning. It is a cold snowy day here in West Michigan. Right now there is sunshine mixed with clouds and snow. Weird weather patterns is one of signs telling us we have entered the end of days.There are drought throughout the world. Cities are running out of clean water to drink. Americans have a moron for a president. On and on it goes, so prepare for the world to go up in flames.

I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. I got up made myself a portion of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. I downloaded this morning a video I made last night for my Booktube channel. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. Carol arrived home from work around 8:39 AM and soon went to bed for the day. I made a fresh pot of coffee and have been reading for morning worship this morning from a book titled, 'The Sermon on the Mount and Human Flourishing: A Theological Commentary' by Jonathan T. Pennington.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me but read my books and write in my diary. Lately it has been too cold to go for walks plus my back has been bothering me and my legs.

Last night I made a video and read late into the night from a book titled, 'North of Now: A Celebration Of Country And The Soon To Be Gone' by W. D. Wetherell. What else did I read yesterday? I read also some more of the novel 'Can You Forgive Her?' by Anthony Trollope.

Well, I suppose I will close to drift through the day. Existence keeps speeding by.

"[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
[43] But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
[44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
[45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
[46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
[47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
[48] But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
[49] And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
[50] The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Matthew 24:42-51
