the profound taste of life in a state of decay

It is 12:56 PM Monday afternoon in the flow. I am down in the lower level of our house writing on my old lap top computer. Carol is right now on skype with Beth and baby Louisa Mae. Our granddaughter Louisa is getting big. We look forward to seeing Louisa in August when Beth and Andy visit us.

I am extremely tired so this will be short and sweet. It is a hot gray humid day here in West Michigan. We are suppose to have severe thunder storms today. All it does is rain. We feel bad for the farmers because their hay remains in the fields. You can not harvest wet hay because of mold.

I have been up since 7:10 AM this morning. We went grocery shopping this morning. We were home from grocery shopping around 11:10 AM.

Not much else to report. I have been mainly reading the novel "Austerlitz" by W. G. Sebald [Translated By Anthea Bell].

I had a ton of stuff I wanted to write about, but now I feel too lifeless to write. Maybe I will get a second wind this afternoon and feel moved to write. Carol works the next three nights. Tomorrow is July 1, 2014. We do not celebrate any national holy days like July Fourth. I do not like to grill meat on national holy days like most Americans. I find grilling meat too middle-class. I do not like being covered with charcoal smoke either. I am really not into anything. I am not into having people come over for grilled meat or going someplace to eat grilled meat. I am waiting out my existence in this house. I am waiting for God to open doors for gospel service. I like to be a kingdom worker in the white fields.

Well I will close to drift.

"[34] Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
[35] Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
[36] And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
[37] And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
[38] I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
[39] And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did." John 4:34-39
