exhilarating taste of freedom from the constraints of rationality

It is 11:48 AM Tuesday late morning here in west Michigan. It is a hot hazy day. We still have the house closed up and the central air system blowing cold air into our living space. It must be frightening to be forever locked in dead space.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got made a pot of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'John' Interpreted by Early Christian and Medieval Commentators. I also made a very short video for my Youtube channel. Carol got home around 8:40 AM and went to bed around 9:30 AM, she is off from work for two nights now.

I left the house this morning to vote. When I got back I left the house to visit north side thrift stores. I only found one used book this morning to add to our library-

'Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates' a novel by Tom Robbins

Last night I made a video and read late into the night from a book titled, 'I Will Be Complete: A Memoir' by Glen David Gold.

Well I am falling asleep so I will close to drift into the afternoon hours. There is no way of escape.

Amazing love!

And can it be that I should gain
An int'rest in the Savior's blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me?

Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me!

2 'Tis mystery all! Th'Immortal dies!
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine!

'Tis mercy all! let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more. [Refrain]

3 He left His Father's throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace;
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam's helpless race;

'Tis mercy all, immense and free;
For, O my God, it found out me. [Refrain]
