the door

It is 12:03 PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan United States of America. I am an American. It is a windy partly sunny cloudy afternoon. I am thankful it is not raining or snowing this afternoon. I should go somewhere and take Autumn photos, but I am feeling lifeless lately. I rather stay indoors and daydream.

Carol left around 11:45 AM to meet old nursing girlfriends for lunch. This morning we went to my doctor's appointment. On the way home we stopped at a thrift store and a grocery store.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. We left for my doctor's appointment around 9 o'clock AM. Now it is 12:06 PM and I am tired. I plan to doze this afternoon. I need plenty of rest if I am going to face what comes next.

Last night we watched professional football and went to bed around 10:30 PM.

There is not much else to report this afternoon. I will close to drift. Tomorrow is a Tuesday. All I have read today is from a book titled, 'The Dreamed Part' by Rodrigo Fresan.

1 The sands of time are sinking,
the dawn of heaven breaks,
the summer morn I've sighed for,
the fair sweet morn awakes;
dark, dark hath been the midnight,
but dayspring is at hand,
and glory, glory dwelleth
in Emmanuel's land.

2 The King there in his beauty
without a veil is seen;
it were a well-spent journey,
though sev'n deaths lay between:
the Lamb with his fair army
doth on Mount Zion stand,
and glory, glory dwelleth
in Emmanuel's land.

3 O Christ, he is the fountain,
the deep sweet well of love!
The streams on earth I've tasted,
more deep I'll drink above:
there to an ocean fullness
his mercy doth expand,
and glory, glory dwelleth
in Emmanuel's land.

4 The bride eyes not her garment,
but her dear bridegroom's face;
I will not gaze at glory,
but on my King of grace;
not at the crown he gifteth,
but on his piercèd hand:
the Lamb is all the glory
of Emmanuel's land.

The sands of time are sinking

The sands of time are sinking,
The dawn of Heaven breaks;
The summer morn I’ve sighed for—
The fair, sweet morn awakes:
Dark, dark hath been the midnight,
But dayspring is at hand,
And glory, glory dwelleth
In Immanuel’s land.

O Christ, He is the fountain,
The deep, sweet well of love!
The streams on earth I’ve tasted
More deep I’ll drink above:
There to an ocean fullness
His mercy doth expand,
And glory, glory dwelleth
In Immanuel’s land.

Oh! Well it is forever,
Oh! well forevermore,
My nest hung in no forest
Of all this death doomed shore:
Yea, let the vain world vanish,
As from the ship the strand,
While glory—glory dwelleth
In Immanuel’s land.

There the red rose of Sharon
Unfolds its heartsome bloom
And fills the air of Heaven
With ravishing perfume:
Oh! To behold it blossom,
While by its fragrance fanned
Where glory—glory dwelleth
In Immanuel’s land.

The King there in His beauty,
Without a veil is seen:
It were a well spent journey,
Though seven deaths lay between:
The Lamb with His fair army,
Doth on Mount Zion stand,
And glory—glory dwelleth
In Immanuel’s land.

Oft in yon sea beat prison
My Lord and I held tryst,
For Anwoth was not Heaven,
And preaching was not Christ:
And aye, my murkiest storm cloud
Was by a rainbow spanned,
Caught from the glory dwelling
In Immanuel’s land.
