the soul is joined to Christ through love

It is in the ongoing death flow 11:12 AM late Wednesday morning here in southwest Michigan. Outside this morning it is cold and gray. It is predicted there could be some sunshine sometime this afternoon.

I just got back from visiting a local thrift store to look at their used books. I found these used books this morning to ADD to our library-

'Cromwell The Lord Protector' biography by Antonia Fraser

'Washington: The Indispensable Man' biography by James Thomas Flexner ( a biography on President George Washington)

'Eight White Nights' a novel by Andre Aciman

'The Vintage Point: Perspectives Of The Presidency 1963-1969' autobiography by Lyndon Baines Johnson

So existence keeps decaying. Carol has gone to bed for the day. I am not sure what I will do next to keep myself awake. I got up this morning around 6:17 AM. I spent the morning doing the usual things like messing with our main computer, writing in my diary and reading my books. I read from these books this morning-

'Introducing Medieval Biblical Interpretation' by Ian Christopher Levy

'John' Interpreted by Early Christian and Medieval Commentators

Last night is ancient history so I won't seek to write it all down. It is another day to wait for another day to come.

I suppose I will close to wait it out. There is no way of escape.

It is in the speeding death flow 7:21 PM Wednesday night. My wife just left for work, she left early because her older brother was admitted to the hospital today with a broken hip. Carol wanted to visit with him and his wife before starting her shift as a Rapid Response Nurse. After tonight she is off four nights. My dear wife is still very sick with a cold. I am doing normal right now. I do not know about next moment in the Now. We never know what shit life will throw at us. All we can do is rest in the fact God is Sovereign.

I did get around to mowing the lawn early afternoon today. I had to rake leaves also while outside. I did not mow our back yard because there is always tomorrow. Well hopefully I will still see tomorrow. The world could come to an end tonight. I could die in my sleep tonight. Maybe Trump will cause a Third World War so as to win the upcoming November elections. America is presently being ruled by Republican shitheads.

I basically spent the day wandering my cell and reading from these books-

'Asymmetry' a novel by Lisa Halliday

'The Vintage Point: Perspectives Of The Presidency 1963-1969' memoir by Lyndon Baines Johnson

'American Audacity: In Defense Of Literary Daring' essays by William Giraldi

Carol got up around 5 o'clock PM. So Time keeps flowing by. Do not know what I will do tonight. I suppose I will listen to music and maybe film a video for my Youtube channel. One has to make hay while the sun shines.
