I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I remember having a dream about cowboy boots. Weird. I do not remember owning a pair of cowboy boots. I do remember wearing a pair of black boot type shoes when I was 10 years or was I 11 years old Norfolk Virginia Black Water County Virginia. So I got up to face existence, made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. Next I wrote in my diary and then read my Reformation Commentary on the Gospel of John chapters 1 through 12. As I was reading I found myself falling asleep so I sat in the living room dozing will my wife came home from work. She has gone to bed since this evening she works from 4 PM till 8 PM.
I should mow our lawn today since the grass is getting high. I wonder what it would be like now to be high on weed, mary jane, mari, pot? The other day in talking to my wife I asked if it is sin now to smoke weed now it has become legal in some states? Should a Christian feel bad smoking weed if it is legal? I do not feel bad having a couple of drinks sometimes or having a couple glasses of wine. Should a Christian go through a guilt trip if he or she has a joint once in a blue moon?
Last night I watched television and went to bed around 11:30 PM. I mainly read from these two books yesterday.
"The Gospel Of John: A Commentary" by Frederick Dale Bruner
"John 1-12" New Testament IV [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Craig S. Farmer
Last night as I was putting away one of the used books I found yesterday at a local thrift store titled "Out Of Africa" a memoir by Isak Dinesen I discovered I have these other books by Dinesen or about her.
"Out Of Africa And Shadows On The Grass" by Isak Dinesen
"Isak Dinesen: Letters From Africa 1914-1931" Translated by Anne Born
"Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller" biography by Judith Thurman [Winner of the 1983 American Book Award]
Well I suppose I will close to drift through my existence. There is no way of escape.
