[1] O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
[2] To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
[3] Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
[4] Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
[5] My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
[6] When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
[7] Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
[8] My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
[9] But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
[10] They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
[11] But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

prayer is a golden chain that reaches from heaven to earth

It is 4:07 PM late Sunday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is another warm sunny afternoon.

I got up this morning around 7:47 AM. I spent the morning writing in my paper diary and reading Anthony Burgess Sermons on Chapter 17 of the Gospel of John. At Noon I turned the television on to watch profession football. I just turned off the TV so as to update my online diaries before it gets dark outside and we come to the end of another day of existence. It is a new week and we are coming faster and faster to the Year 2020.

Today while watching professional football I have been reading, 'Nothing To Be Frightened Of' A Memoir by Julian Barnes. I collect the works of Julian Barnes. Here is a list of the books we have by Julian Barnes in our library-

'The Sense of an Ending' A Novel by Julian Barnes

'A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters' A Novel by Julian Barnes

'Talking It Over' A Novel by Julian Barnes

'Metroland' A Novel by Julian Barnes

'The Lemon Table' Stories by Julian Barnes

'England. England' A Novel by Julian Barnes

'Flaubert's Parrot' A Novel by Julian Barnes

'Pulse' Stories by Julian Barnes

'Arthur & George' A Novel by Julian Barnes

I need to read more of the works of Julian Barnes. All Barnes novels look interesting and would be not a waste of time reading.

So this day has gone by. My wife leaves for Covenant PCA soon for evening worship. Her church now starts at 5 o'clock PM instead of 6 o'clock PM. My wife said church was not full this morning. Due to the COVID-19 plague people are not attending church services or their churches are shut down. Our children have not attended church for months due to the COVID-19 plague. Here where we live Carol's church is one of the few churches that have remained open for worship during this deadly plague. Carol wears her mask and keeps social distancing while worshiping the Lord God. I told Carol today that due to the upsurge of COVID-19 deaths I might not leave the house for awhile.

Well I close to wait for night fall. It is a new week and I am praying America accepts Biden as our next President.
