pleading to gnaw the bones of Moses

It is in the death flow 3:12 PM Friday afternoon. It is another cold damp gray day here in southwest Michigan.

I got up this morning around 5:55 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. When my wife got up I made for breakfast a pot of oatmeal. After I ate my oatmeal I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'Grounded In Heaven: Recentering Christian Hope and Life on God' by Michael Allen. Carol left this morning for appointment and I made a video for my Youtube channel. After making a video I got ready to go to the library used bookstore The Book Nook where I volunteer from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM Fridays and Mondays.

The Book Nook was not slow nor busy so when not helping people I read from these two books-

'Grounded In Heaven: Recentering Christian Hope and Life on God' by Michael Allen

'Puritan Piety: Writings in Honor of Joel R. Beeke' Edited by Michael A.G. Haykin & Paul M. Smalley

I brought home from the Book Nook these used books to ADD to our library-

'Carl W. Peters: American Scene Painter from Rochester to Rockport' biography/Art History by Richard H. Love

'The First World War: A Complete History' by Martin Gilbert

'Plain, Honest Men: The Making of The American Constitution' American History by Richard Beeman

'Two Americans-Truman, Eisenhower, And A Dangerous World' by William Lee Miller

When I got home from the Book Nook Carol was home eating lunch. She is now sleeping because she works tonight.

So Time keeps speeding by. Not much else to report, so I will close to drift.

    Wovenhand 'Refractory Ordurate'

Masonic Youth



away and what to us O nazarite
you have to destroy
we know who you are
holy one of God
"COME FORTH OUT"
PLUCKED UP AND DOUBLE DEAD
what is done
what is said
from deathbed to deathbed
the paste faced men
a collection collective
bedside manner grin

this darkness does not want me
it refuses to hold me
who will hide me in the fowl air
of my own hearts desires

you've the most beautiful thing
i've even seen
in all four directions
i, learning who you have been
he is not you, this strawman
let me take a look
let me take a stab at it
pitch black
He has stood my ride
hey living symbol
living symbol
girl come inside
who is this to speak before Him
pleading to gnaw the bones of Moses
"be ye quiet and come forth out"
plucked up and double dead
holy one
churning up a foam sea
be ye quiet shipwreck inside of me
