the bodies of the saints are buried in peace

It is 2:42 PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is another cold snowy day. Well right now it is not snowing but it has been predicted to snow this evening. We did have some sunshine today, but now it is overcast once again.

I got up this morning around 6:10 AM. Carol had gotten up around 5 o'clock AM this morning. When I got up Carol made breakfast for us. I ate breakfast and then Carol left to go grocery shopping. While Carol was gone to grocery shopping I wrote in my paper diary and read, 'The Life Of Jesus Christ' Part One Volume 1, Chapters 1-40 by Ludolph of Saxony. Carol home from grocery shopping around 12 o'clock PM. After she shopped for groceries she visited a thrift store to look at their used books.

I left the house this afternoon to get some food items Carol forgot to get and to visit local thrift stores to look at their used books. I found these used books today for our library. I should mention we did find a fellow who said he would build book shelves for us. This fellow is suppose to call us this week and come over to see what he could do in helping us get books on shelves or at least off the floor down in the lower level.

These are the used books I bought today-

'History of Danish Dreams' a novel by Peter Hoeg Translated By Barbara Haveland

'Art As Spiritual Perception: Essays In Honor of E. John Walford' Edited By James Romaine

'Walt Whitman's Mrs. G.: A Biography of Anne Gilchrist' by Marion Walker Alcaro

'Chicago Tribune: The Rise of American Newspaper' by Lloyd Wendt

While out visiting thrift stores I also went to a grocery store and bought comfort food. So has gone by existence. Last night I mainly read late into the night from a novel titled, 'That Mad Ache' A Novel by Francoise Sagan Translated by Douglas Hofstadter.

I will close since I am falling asleep. We are in the middle of the month of February today.

Music: The Body 'I've Seen All I Need To See' CD

[1] Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
[2] O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
[3] But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
[4] Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
[5] The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
[6] The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
[7] I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
[8] I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
[9] Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
[10] For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
[11] Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
