"A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned" Matthew 12:35-37

by faith we understand

It is 11:58 AM late Tuesday morning here in West Michigan. It will soon be once again 12 o'clock PM in the ongoing death flow. It is a sunny day here in West Michigan. Existence keeps flowing by full speed.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I found my wife in our living room having morning devotions. I got myself a bottle of cold water and sat in my living room chair seeking to wake up. After I woke up somewhat I got a cup of coffee and messed with our main computer. Next I made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast Carol and I talked and then had devotions.

Carol left this morning to get her hair cut, visit her widowed sister-in-law and take a walk. While she was or is gone I filmed a video, wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'Systematic Theology' by Robert Letham.

There is not much else to report. Watch my video below if you want to know more.

Last night I read from 'The Golden Legend' by Jacobus de Voragine and from another book titled, 'In Search Of Sacred Time: Jacobus de Voragine and The Golden Legend' by Jacques Le Goff. I also read late into the night from a book titled, 'Systematic Theology' by Robert Letham. Last night I carried down into the lower level several volumes of the Ancient Commentary Series out of my main study and brought up several volumes of Reformed Theology and other theological and Puritan books. I figure I hardly look at my Ancient Commentaries, whereas I am always reading Reformed Systematic Theology and the 17th cent. English Puritans.

So it is now 12:08 PM Tuesday afternoon in the death flow. I will close to drift, read, write, and watch the birds. There is no way out.

To James Laughlin

It is 4:30 PM Tuesday late afternoon. I usually do not write a second time in my online diaries because I have nothing brand new to share with my membership. But this afternoon I got brave and drove to Holland Rescue Mission Gateway Center thrift store to search for used books. We had not been there in a couple of weeks, so I got crazy and drove there by myself. Carol thought about going, but changed her mind. So I drove over to Gateway to look at their used books and found these old used books to ADD to our book collection-

'Maigret And The Spinster' Crime Fiction by Georges Simenon Translated from the French by Elleen Ellenbogen

'The Collected Later Poems' William Carlos Williams

'The American Scene' Travel Memoir by Henry James (I collect the writings of Henry James and did not know of this travel memoir written by James)

'Angels & Insects' Two Novellas by A. S. Byatt (I had this book in a nice paperback edition, this edition is perfect hardback edition)

'Genet: A Biography' by Edmund White (I had this biography in a paperback, this is a fine perfect condition hardback edition)

When I got home from Gateway I found my wife cooking and baking in the kitchen. Nothing mind blowing came in the mail today.

Tomorrow Carol and I plan to travel to the city of Grand Rapids MI to visit Reformation Heritage Books/Puritan Theological Seminary to buy books and then stop by the office of our Tax Man to pick up our taxes. We might do some other stuff while wandering Grand Rapids MI tomorrow.

I will close to drift. It is 4:45 PM right now and the sun is still shining. The Lord is faithful.
