"[1] Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
[2] But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
[3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
[4] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
[5] For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
[6] For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
[7] But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:1-7

the true light of life

It is 11:58 AM late Thursday morning. It is a cold gray rainy day. I got up this morning around 6:45 AM. When I got up I found my wife sitting in the living room reading. I sat for awhile trying to wake up to another day during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Carol said she had to eat something before going down the street to baby-sit Cora and Josie.

Carol left the house around 7:55 AM to baby-sit. I sat down and wrote in my paper diary and read off and on through the morning from a book titled, 'Seeing By The Light: Illumination in Augustine's and Barth's Readings of John' by Ike Miller. I filmed a short video this morning for my Youtube channel. So has gone by existence thus far. I expect Carol to be home sometime this afternoon, maybe 12:30 PM or 1 o'clock PM.

Last night I read, 'The Maze of Death' a novel by Philip K. Dick till 11:30 PM and went to bed. Carol had gone to bed last night around 9 o'clock PM.

I do not know what I will do the rest of this day. Everything is still shut down due to the plague. It is strange watching our neighbors doing yard work when thousands are dying of a plague. Our neighbors across from us are putting in new woods floors as the COVID-19 plague rages. We all could be dead soon due to this plague. Weird to see people acting like all is normal when things are not normal. Well I will close to wait it out.
