the unity of the Bible requires the illumination of the Holy Spirit

It is 10:31 AM Saturday morning here in West Michigan. It is a sunny morning and I can hear birds outside. We have the windows of our house open to let in air. Is this air fresh, that remains unknown.

Carol and Josie left this morning to do errands. I have been reading for morning worship from a book titled, 'Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition: Recovering the Genius of Premodern Exegesis' by Craig A. Carter. (Carol and Josie got home from their errands.)

Last night is a blur. Carol and Josie got home from Grand Rapids around 6:30 PM. We ate dinner and went through the evening hours. Carol and Josie went to bed around 9 o'clock PM. I slept down in the lower level because Josie slept with Noni. I made a video before going to bed.

I mainly read yesterday from a book titled, 'Night Walking: A Nocturnal History Of London' by Matthew Beaumont.

Well I could write more but there is too much going on around me to zero in on my inner voice so I will close.

We do not know when Caleb, Emily, and Cora show up this afternoon.

It is in the ongoing death flow 3:02 PM Saturday afternoon. Caleb, Emily, and Josie went downtown Holland. Carol and I are home babysitting baby Cora Leigh.

Today I did leave our house for a short period of time and visited a nearby thrift store to see if I could locate any used books to add to our library. I found these used books this morning-

'Middlemarch' a novel by George Eliot

'The Forest for the Trees: An Editor's Advice to Writers' by Betsy Lerner

'The Parables: Understanding the Stories Jesus Told' by Simon J. Kistemaker (When we were at Reformed Theological Seminary Jackson Miss. I had Dr. Kistemaker for one of my New Testament Professors.)

'Paris Trout' a novel by Pete Dexter

'Literary Landscapes Of The British Isles: A Narrative Atlas' by David Daiches & John Flower

'Edith Wharton: A Biography' by R.W.B. Lewis

'New Year's Day' a novella by Edith Wharton

'Baghdad Without A Map and other misadventures in Arabia' travel memoir by Tony Horwitz

'Knowing God' by J. I. Packer

'Frog Music' a novel by Emma Donghue

'The World Of The Vikings' by Richard Hall

When I got back from the local thrift store Caleb, Emily, and Cora were here from Grand Rapids. We ate lunch and sat around talking and holding Cora. Right now Cora is taking a nap and Carol is picking up the house. I am fighting to stay awake since I slept poorly last night. I suppose I will close to feel full of Mexican food and exhaustion.
