Wonderful Words Of Life

1 Sing them over again to me,
wonderful words of life;
let me more of their beauty see,
wonderful words of life;
words of life and beauty,
teach me faith and duty:

Refrain:
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
wonderful words of life.

2 Christ, the blessed One, gives to all
wonderful words of life;
sinner, list to the laving call,
wonderful words of life;
all so freely given,
wooing us to heaven: [Refrain]

3 Sweetly echo the gospel call,
wonderful words of life;
offer pardon and peace to all,
wonderful words of life;
Jesus, only Savior,
sanctify forever, [Refrain]

It is in the divine flow of the Plan of God to save or restore the cosmos Wednesday 10:04 AM southwest Michigan Time. We are still in the midst of a severe Winter storm here in Michigan. Hopefully by this weekend the weather will clear up.

I got up this morning around 5:55 AM. A weird dream drove me out of bed this morning. Once my brain is awake it is almost impossible for me to stay in bed. So I got up made myself oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read my Reformation Commentary on the Gospel of John chapter 6.

Carol called around 8:30 AM to tell me she was ready to come home after working all night. So I drove over the hospital and picked her up. Carol has gone to bed for the day. She works tonight and then is off from work. After Carol went to bed I fed our birds and cleaned the kitchen. I have been reading this morning for devotions from these books-

Last night I made a video for my Youtube channel and read late into the night from a book titled, 'Ninth Street Women Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art' by Mary Gabriel.

Well I suppose I will close to drift. I am tired as usual. It looks like it will be a day of watching the snow fall and listening to howling winds. There is no way of escape.

"[64] But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
[65] And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
[66] From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
[67] Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
[68] Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
[69] And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
[70] Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
[71] He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." John 6:64-71
