"[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." Psalm 16:6-11

Lemon Pound Cake

It is 1:11 PM Saturday afternoon on a gray sky ugly late Spring day. It has been predicted to rain today.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. When I got up I found Carol communicating with her cell phone. I got myself a cup of coffee and sat in our dining room seeking to wake up.

Carol left this morning around 8:05 AM for Covenant PCA to make pigs with people from Covenant PCA. I spent the morning writing in my paper diary and reading from a book titled, 'Contemplating God with the Great Tradition: Recovering Trinitarian Classical Theism' by Craig A. Carter. I also filmed this morning a video showing folks the used books I bought at thrift stores this week.

Carol got home around Noon. Carol is now making apple dumplings. This evening we go down the street to have burgers with our son Caleb and his family.

I am tired this afternoon since I did not get to bed till almost Midnight. I am a light sleeper. I will close to wait to see what comes in the mail this afternoon.
