  • Mood:

the great crash

It is 8:06 AM Tuesday morning in the flow of life. Outside it is gray and humid. It feels like it is going to rain today.

I am not sure what time we got up this morning. Maybe it was around 7 o'clock AM. My wife had to be at the hospital all day today for a class that started at 8 o'clock AM.

I have had a typical morning. I do not plan to go anywhere today. Well I will go back to the Friends of Library Used Books Sale to pack the books that did not sell this evening. Besides that I plan to just drift silently through existence.

This morning I have already written in my paper diary. I have been reading this morning for some unknown reason "A Life In Our Times" Memoirs by John Kenneth Galbraith. I have these books by Galbraith in our library.

"The Great Crash, 1929" by John Kenneth Galbraith

"The Affluent Society" by John Kenneth Galbraith

"The Liberal Hour" by John Kenneth Galbraith

"Ambassador's Journal" by John Kenneth Galbraith

"Money: Whence It Came, Where It Went" by John Kenneth Galbraith

John Kenneth Galbraith

These days I can not focus on any one thing. I am tired. I am out of it spiritually speaking. I have lost my bearings.

Well I suppose I will close to wander.

"[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
[15] John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
[16] And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
[17] For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
[18] No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." John 1:14-18

"Lord, Thou has promised grace for grace"

Lord, Thou hast promised grace for grace
To all who daily seek Thy face;
To them who have, Thou givest more
Out of Thy vast, exhaustless store.

Each step we take but gathers strength
For further progress, till at length,
With ease the highest steeps we gain,
And count the mountain but a plain.

Who watch, and pray, and work each hour
Receive new life and added power,
A power fresh victories to win
Over the world, and self, and sin.

Help us, O Lord, that we may grow
In grace as Thou dost grace bestow;
And still Thy richer gifts repeat
Till grace in glory is complete.

"And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace." John 1:16
