"[10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
[11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
[12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
[13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
[14] Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
[15] And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
[16] As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
[17] Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
[18] But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen." 2 Peter 3:10-18

It is 11:55 AM Monday late morning here in West Michigan. It looks like it is going to rain sometime this afternoon. It has been predicted to be a warm rainy week this week. April showers brings May flowers.

I am feeling these days very tired, right now I feel flushed. Maybe I have drank too much coffee this morning. I have been having lately days where I just want to fall asleep. Maybe I am stressed out and need to relax. I could take a chill pill, but then I would feel drugged and very sleepy. Anyway it is another day during the COVID-19 Pandemic. I got up this morning around 6:43 AM. I got up and immediately cleaned the kitchen. I always feel better seeing no dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. After I washed dishes and put stuff in containers I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary. I read most of the morning from a book titled, 'The Wonderful Works of God' by Herman Bavinck.

When Carol got home from work she decided to go grocery shopping this morning instead of tomorrow morning. Right now she is sleeping and is off the next eight nights from work.

In the mail this morning I received a used book I had ordered titled, 'Walter Lippmann And The American Century' biography by Ronald Steel.

Last night I read from these two books till Midnight (Carol left for work around 1:30 AM), 'Personal History' A Memoir by Katharine Graham and 'Yours in Truth: A Personal Portrait of Ben Bradlee, Legendary Editor of The Washington Post' biography by Jeff Himmelman.

I am falling asleep so I will close to drift through the afternoon hours. I did film a video this morning while Carol was gone for my Youtube site.
