today is Carol and I's 40th Wedding Anniversary

It is 6:50 AM Sunday morning here in West Michigan. Carol and I celebrate today our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Where did all those 40 years go? It absolutely amazes me realizing Carol and I have been married 40 years! Time has flown by so quickly! It would be a blessing if Carol and I had ahead of us another 40 years of marriage, but that is not possible. If Carol and I live to be a 100 years old we could have another 33 years together in this earthly life. Our days are in the hands of the Lord.

the order of reality is the divine economy

It is 12:33 PM Sunday morning in the order of reality in the Divine Economy. A rainy gray damp humid afternoon here in Western Michigan. Everything is blooming right now.

Carol and I both got up this morning around 6:10 AM to face another day. We exchanged Anniversary cards I LOVE YOU. I pray Carol and I celebrate many more wedding anniversaries in the unknown future. Does death dissolve the marriage covenant?

So Carol and I got up. Carol made a fresh pot of coffee and I ate breakfast. Carol read her Bible and I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'Romans Disarmed: Resisting Empire/Demanding Justice' by Sylvia C. Keesmaat & Brian J. Walsh. I also messed with our main computer this morning and filmed a video for my Youtube channel. Carol went downtown this morning and got Sunday newspapers.

Carol left for Covenant PCA around 9:55 AM and she plans after church to go to an Open House and to visit Pam. Sometime this afternoon Carol and I will go down the street to have hamburgers with our oldest son and his family. I am sure Carol will go back to Covenant PCA this evening.

Last night I read most of the evening from a book titled, 'The Beauty of The Lord: Theology As Aesthetics' by Jonathan King. Carol and I watched taped television shows. Carol went to bed and I stayed up to read and write in my paper diary. Now it is another day, a new week.

Well not much else to report this afternoon. I will close to sit and doze.

I failed to mention that yesterday afternoon Caleb, Cora, and Ollie the puppy came by around Noontime. Emily was at a meeting yesterday most of the morning. Josie spent the night with us Friday night.
