the final purpose of man lay in the eternal blessedness

It is 2:06 PM Saturday afternoon here in Western Michigan. It is cloudy gray day. No sunshine presently visible. Maybe later this afternoon we will be blessed with some sunshine. It has been predicted to be a sunny day tomorrow.

I got up this morning around 6:37 AM. When I got up I found my wife reading the Bible in the living room. In this times we all should be reading our Bibles because soon there will be a famine/no Word of God to be found. So I got up made 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 books all morning and into the afternoon hours.

This afternoon I have been once again reading, 'Abel And Cain' a novel by Gregor Von Rezzori.

There is not much else to report today. Existence goes by.

Last night I read my books and went to bed around 11:30 PM. Carol had gone to bed last night around 9 o'clock PM. She got up this morning around 4 o'clock AM. I am sure she will take a nap this afternoon.

This morning I read 'The Wonderful Works of God' by Herman Bavinck and then 'The Works of William Perkins' Volume 8. I also read from these two books last night before going to bed.

I will close to drift. Tomorrow is a Sunday.

"[21] Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
[22] It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
[23] That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.
[24] Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.
[25] To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
[26] Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
[27] Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
[28] Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
[29] He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
[30] Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
[31] But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
" Isaiah 40:21-31
