    Signs of the Swarm 'The Disfigurement of Existence'

all sin is infinitely heinous

It is 12:09 PM Saturday afternoon in the flow the Now. It is another hot humid day here in West Michigan. I was falling asleep earlier so I decided to finish mowing our lawn. I mowed our backyard and then cleaned up. Now I am cooling off and decided to write some words. I might not be able to write words later due to being out of It. But right Now I am in It so I will write about It.

I got up this morning around 5:50 AM. A crazy dream woke me up early. I was hoping I would sleep at least till 7 o'clock AM, but it did not happen. So I got up made a fresh pot of coffee and then toasted frozen waffles for a morning meal. It is nice to wake up to no screaming grandchildren. I am a lover of peace and order. After breakfast I messed with our main computer, wrote in my paper diary and then made another video for my Youtube channel.

Carol got home from work around 9 o'clock AM. When she got home I was reading for morning devotions from these two books-

'Trinity Without Hierarchy: Reclaiming Nicene Orthodoxy in Evangelical Theology' Michael F. Bird & Scott Harrower Editors

'The Beauty of The Lord: Theology As Aesthetics' by Jonathan King

After Carol went to bed I downloaded the video I made this morning and read. As I was reading I felt sleepy so I decided to finish mowing the lawn. So has gone my day thus far.

I plan to drift through the afternoon hours enjoying my last hours on earth.

I do not remember much about last night. I do remember making a video last night for my Youtube channel. I remember going to bed. Now it is another day in the flow of existence. I will close since I am falling asleep.

the Son sent by the Father into the world to fulfill a salvific mission

It is 9:55 PM Saturday night here in west Michigan. I have been figuring out how much money I have charged on one of our credit cards. I used one credit card for Amazon and another credit card for Paypal. I tend to spend a lot of money at Amazon Online store. It is amazing how in a 30 day credit card cycle how much money one can spend on books! Credit cards are not good. One should learn how to live on cash and not credit. Carol always pays off our credit cards each month. She hates to pay interest on credit cards. Carol and I live within our reasonable limits. We are simple working class folk. We live off the riches of Christ. We are heirs of the kingdom of God.

I think I already mentioned that I did some yard work today. I think I have not mentioned that I did finally decide to go to Staples Office Supply Store to get ink for our printer. I also got pens and paper at Staples. While out running around I visited Goodwill Thrift Store and Salvation Army Thrift store in search of used books to ADD to our library. I found these used books today-

'Taken Care Of The Autobiography of Edith Sitwell' Edith Sitwell

'The Erasers' A Novel by Alain Robbe-Grillet Translated from the French by Richard Howard

'Pagan Babies' A Novel by Greg Johnson

'Why Americans Hate Politics' by E. J. Dionne, Jr.

'America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' by Sarah Bradford

'The Fifty-Year Wound: The True Price Of America's Cold War Victory' by Derek Leebaert

'A Doubter's Almanac' A Novel by Ethan Canin

'Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius' by Sylvia Nasar

When I got home from my errands it was going on 4:30 PM. Carol decided to get up early so she was up around 4:35 AM. She usually gets up around 6:30 PM. She said she could not sleep any longer so she got up. It is going to be a very long work shift for my wife tonight. Carol works 12 hour shifts at a near by community hospital. Carol is a Rapid Response nurse.

It seems these days hospitals are filled with suicidal people and alcoholics. It is crazy that most hospital beds are taken up with people who either want to commit suicide or drink themselves to death.

Amazon delivered to our door this evening two novels I had recently ordered-

'Tears Of The Trufflepig' a novel by Fernando A. Flores

'A Brief History of Portable Literature' a novel by Enrique Vila-Matas Translated from the Spanish by Anne McLean & Thomas Bunstead

Well, it has been a long day so I will close to prepare to end it all.
