salvation in Christ

It is 1:58 PM Friday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a cold wet damp windy gray day. It feels like Autumn today. Where did Spring and Summer go this year? I suppose due to being in the Last Days we won't be experiencing the Four Seasons any more. Life will become endless darkness.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up to find my wife in her usual spot in our living room. I made a fresh pot of coffee and then made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast we had devotions and then left for Bluestockings Books Store for a Dollar Bag Sale. We have been giving our used books books to Bluestockings for in-store credit the last couple of months. I got these used books at Bluestockings dollar a bag sale-

'The Shape Of The Liturgy' by Dom Gregory Dix

'Forty Gospel Homilies' by Gregory The Great

'Salvation In Christ: A Lutheran-Orthodox Dialogue' Edited and with an introduction by John Meyendorff & Robert Tobias

'Luther and the Old Testament' by Heinrich Bornkamm

'Tradition And Interpretation In Matthew' by Gunther Bornkamm, Gerhard Barth, & Heinz Joachim Held

At Bluestockings I also bought these books that were not apart of the dollar a bag sale-

'An American Procession: The Major American Writers from 1830-1930-The Crucial Century' By Alfred Kazin

'Lost Boston' Photographic history of the City of Boston Mass. by Jane Holtz Kay

'The Death And Life Of Great American Cities' by Jane Jacobs

'The Hungarians: A Thousand Years of Victory in Defeat' by Paul Lendvai Translated By Ann Major

We left Bluestockings and headed home for lunch. Before coming straight home we stopped at Southside Goodwin to look at their old used books. I found these used books today there-

'In the Darkroom' A Memoir by Susan Faludi

'Akenfield: Portrait of an English Village' by Ronald Blythe

'Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities' essays by Rebecca Solnit

'Restless Angles: The Friendship of Six Victorian Women' biography by Helen Heineman

'An Anthology Of English Prose With A Commentary 1400-1900' Edited By Eirian James Cambridge At The University Press 1958

So this day has gone by thus far like it was suppose to from the beginning of Time. I will close to recover from an ordeal. Last night I mainly read till bedtime from a book titled, 'The Paradox Of Sonship: Christology in the Epistle to the Hebrews' by R. B. Jamieson.
