boiling love aspires to union with the Beloved

It is 2 o'clock PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is 83 degrees today and we turned on the central air system to keep the house cool.

I just got home from our library used books store The Book Nook where I volunteer Monday's and Friday's from 10 AM till 1 PM. Today the Book Nook was hardly busy so I sat and read from a book I brought with me titled, 'Carthusian Spirituality-The Writings Of Hugh Of Balma And Guigo De Ponte' [The Classics of Western Spirituality]. I bought some used books at the Book Nook today-

'In Other Rooms, Other Wonders' Short Stories by Daniyal Mueenuddin

'Imagining Argentina' A Novel by Lawrence Thornton

'Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War' Memoir by Ernesto Che Guevara

'Nose Dive: A Field Guide to the World's Smells' By Harold McGee

When I got home from the Book Nook I found Carol not here, she is at a funeral this afternoon.

I got up this morning around 7:30 AM. When I got up I found my wife reading her Bible. I made a fresh pot of coffee and had breakfast. After breakfast I took my meds and wrote in my paper diary. Carol and I prayed and then she left to have a brunch with some of her cousins on her Dad's side of the family.

So this day goes by according to the will of my heavenly Father. I am not sure what I will do next. I could take a nap or sit and pray.

Last night Carol and I prayed and she went to bed early. I went down into the lower level and read from these two books before going to bed-
