comes to rest in God by means of love and his pure intention

It is 9:46 AM Friday morning. This morning we are in the midst of a snow and rain storm. I do not know how much snow we will get today. I do not expect to see any Spring, Summer or Autumn this year. We have entered another Ice Age. Yesterday I walked around our house and all plant life has died. I predict soon West Michigan will be void of plant life.

I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. I got up because I was having head pounding dreams. I was suffering from dream activity that did not make any sense. So I got up let Rudy out of his crate and made a pot of coffee (four cups of coffee). Next I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary. So goes existence.

All I have done this morning profoundly meaningful is fed the birds. When I was outside feeding the birds I was being rained on my ice snow.

I have nothing life saving to do today. I thought about leaving the house to see the movie Noah, but the weather has turned deadly.

All I have attempted to read during the Last Days is a book of short stories by Alice Munro titled, "Friend Of My Youth".

Well I will close to start a wood fire so as to scare away the wolves.

"[1] This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
[2] That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
[3] Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
[4] And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
[5] For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
[6] Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
[8] But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
[9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
[10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
[11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
[12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
[13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
[14] Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." 2 Peter 3:1-14
