"[10] Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
[11] Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
[12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
[13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
[14] Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
[15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
[16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
[17] And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
[18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
[19] And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
[20] For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak." Ephesians 6:10-20
It is in the death flow 1:19 PM Sunday afternoon. It is a cold extremely windy afternoon. I am feeling somewhat better today, which is a blessing. I suppose I had some 24 hour virus, but who knows. I am sure someday most of the human race will be killed off by some plague. We can only hope.

I got up this morning around 7:45 AM which was odd, because I usually do not sleep that late. I then looked at the other household clocks and it was 6:45 AM. We went forward and hour during the night. So I changed all the clocks in the house to the correct time (I still have the change the time on the clock down in our library.) I made for myself oatmeal for breakfast and a fresh pot of coffee. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer and I then wrote in my paper diary diary. I have been mainly seeking to read this morning from a book titled, 'Embracing Contemplation: Reclaiming A Christian Spiritual Practice' Edited By John H. Coe And Kyle C. Strobel. I also made a short video this morning on Christian spiritual warfare.

Carol called around 11:10 AM our time, her time was around 8:10 AM. We talked on the phone for a few minutes, she is having a nice time. She sent me a picture of a used books store they visited yesterday. While she was at this used books store she called me and asked if I had certain used biographies. I can't recall the titles of the biographies except one was on the life of Philip Dick, but she got me three used biographies from this used books store.

Last night I watched some television and read from a novel titled, 'The Age Of Light' by Whitney Scharer. I slept ok, but had weird dreams all night. Now it is a new week. Well not much else to report this afternoon, so I will close to drift.

Here is the photo Carol sent me of the used books store they visited yesterday.
For my Jonny who would have spent all day here!

05:57 pm - FEEL NOTHING


We are alone
You're not the only one

You're like the rest of us
Oh, you will become undone

We are alone
Alone with every one

We want our soul to burn
We want to tell the hurt

'Til we don't feel nothing

Why should we try so hard
Let's get numb
'Til we don't feel nothing

There's comfort in the dark
Let's get numb
'Til we don't feel nothing

Here alone
We didn't choose to be born
Under a dying sun
Just let us cool the burn

'Til we don't feel nothing

Why should we try so hard?
(Let's get numb)
'Til we don't feel nothing

There's comfort in the dark
(Let's get numb)
Till we don't feel nothing

Enough for us to sleep at night
We try so hard to hold on
Just for us to sleep at night

Till we don't feel nothing
