the intellectual act of apprehending the divine essence

It is 10:02 AM Tuesday morning in the death flow. Outside this morning it is raining and gray. It stormed all night. Parts of Michigan are without power due to the storm.

I got up this morning around 7:30 AM. I got up made a fresh pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. While I was reading from a book titled, 'Seeing God: The Beatific Vision in Christian Tradition' by Hans Boersma Carol came home from work.

Carol went to bed for the day around 9 o'clock AM. I have been writing in my diary and reading, 'Seeing God'. Time crawls by.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. It is too wet and stormy to go anywhere. I do not feel safe driving my old Dodge van in bad weather. The world is a dangerous place for drivers.

Last night I made a video for my Youtube channel and read late into the night from a novel titled, 'Busy Monsters' by William Giraldi.

Do not know what else to report on this rainy wet gray day. My life keeps going by.

happiness means to find satisfaction in the ever-progressing desire for more of God

It is in the flow of divine providence 8:47 PM Tuesday night here in west Michigan. I thought I would list the used books I found today at local thrift stores. Late this morning I left the house to get bird food and to visit thrift stores in search of reading matter. I always need something to read before the final curtain falls. I found these used books today to add to our midbrow library-

'The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage'

'Faith & Power: The Politics of Islam' by Edward Mortimer

'Sea Of Gray: The Round-The-World Odyssey Of The Confederate Raider Shenandoah' Civil War History by Tom Chaffin

'Endless Frontier: Vannevar Bush, Engineer Of The American Century' biography by G. Pascal Zachary

A Royal Affair: George III And His Scandalous Siblings' biography by Stella Tillyard

'Unto the Sons' a novel by Gay Talese

So this day has gone by. When I got back from my errands I drift through the afternoon. Around 3 o'clock PM our oldest son called asking if I could help him move boxes around the house. Emily and Caleb moved into their new house today, so I drove down the street and helped our son.

Anyway this day has gone by. I read this afternoon before helping our son Caleb from a novel titled, 'Pinkerton's Sister' a novel by Peter Rushforth. I also read this afternoon from a volume titled, 'Modernism The Lure Of Heresy: From Baudelaire To Beckett And Beyond' by Peter Gay.
