the unity of the covenant

It is 12:28 PM Tuesday afternoon. It is a cold gray day. I am cold to the bone this afternoon. I need to get warm. I am sleepy right now because I hardly slept last night. I was hot all night and my shoulders were sore. My body lately is always sore and stiff. I am falling asleep as I write so I need to get this chore over quick. I can't stay awake, so I will close for now and come back later. No I will force myself to write. I will get myself a hot cup of coffee and maybe that will wake me up.

I got up this morning around 5:58 AM. When I got up Carol was already up. I got myself a bottle of cold water and sat for awhile seeking to wake up.

Once I woke up I had breakfast and got a cup of coffee. I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary. I read after writing in my diary from a book titled, 'Unity And Continuity In Covenantal Thought: A Study in the Reformed Tradition to the Westminster Assembly' by Andrew W. Woolsey. Not much else to report, Carol works the next two nights. She only has twelve more shifts to work before she retires in June 2020.

Last night I watched television with Carol and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I did filmed a video last night for my Youtube site. Well, I will close to doze.

Gratitude for a treasured bargain!

When all Thy mercies, O my God,
My rising soul surveys,
Transported with the view, I’€™m lost
In wonder, love and praise.

Thy Providence my life sustained,
And all my wants redressed,
While in the silent womb I lay,
And hung upon the breast.

To all my weak complaints and cries
Thy mercy lent an ear,
Ere yet my feeble thoughts had learned
To form themselves in prayer.

Unnumbered comforts to my soul
Thy tender care bestowed,
Before my infant heart conceived
From Whom those comforts flowed.

When in the slippery paths of youth
With heedless steps I ran,
Thine arm unseen conveyed me safe,
And led me up to man.
