O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

"[24] Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
[25] And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
[26] I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
[27] But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." 1 Corinth. 9:24-27

our continuous transfiguration in the Holy Spirit

It is 2:02 PM Friday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a humid sunny day. During the night and morning hours we had a thunder storm. Once again we had a little water along one wall of our basement. We have been in the house for thirty years and I have never seen any water leaks in our basement. Why now? Could it be due to all the landscaping we had done to our property last Fall?

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. Carol was already up when I got up. She left around 7 o'clock AM to have breakfast with a friend. I spent the morning writing in my paper diary, I filmed a video for my Youtube channel, and read from a book titled, 'Life of Jesus Christ' Part One Volume 2, Chapters 41-92 By Ludolph of Saxony.

Carol got home from her breakfast with a friend around 9:40 AM. I left around 9:45 AM to volunteer at our local library Used Books Store The Book Nook. The Book Nook was not busy, only sold $28.00 worth of materials. Carol showed up for her shift at 12:50 PM (her shift is from 1 PM till 3 PM). While at the Book Nook I bought these used books-

'A Book Hunter's Holiday: Adventures With Books And Manuscripts' By A. S. W. Rosenbach (First Published in 1936 Reprinted in 1968)

'Books In Black Or Red' A Book about books/nonfiction by Edmund Lester Pearson (published in 1923)

'Minding My Own Business: An Autobiography' by Percy Muir

'Shanghai Grand: Forbidden Love And International Intrigue In A Doomed City' Nonfiction by Taras Grescoe

While I was at the Book Nook when not helping people I read/begun to read, 'Minding My Own Business: An Autobiography' by Percy Muir.

Last night before going to bed I read some more of the Crime Novel 'Bangkok Tattoo' by John Burdett.

There is not much else to report. I did get a book in the mail yesterday titled, 'Fathers of The Primitive Church' by Herbert Musurillo.

I will close to feel wasted.
