the humble art of ascending to heaven

It is 8:41 PM Sunday night in the flow of my life. We are here today and gone tomorrow. I am down in the lower level writing on my old lap top. I came down here to turn off this lap top and to close the shades. Tomorrow is another day. I think this coming Tuesday is the first day of Autumn officially. Where did Summer 2014 go?

I had today a normal day. Carol and I took a walk at Outdoor Discovery Center which is not far from our front door. Where we live there are many parks to go to and walk. But when winter comes these parks are for people into winter sports. I hope we have a mild winter this year. Today it was gray, cold and windy.

I have mainly read this evening "The Golden Epistle" by William Of St Thierry. My mind can't seem to get into my secular books this evening. Plus I am tired and plan to go to bed early tonight. I have been up since 6:30 AM. Well I did go back to bed around 10:30 AM and got up around 12:05 PM this afternoon. Carol got home from church around 12:30 PM this afternoon.

This afternoon we skyped Emily, Caleb and baby Josephine. Josephine is now two weeks old. Yesterday we skyped Beth and Louisa. This evening Josiah called and we talked a little. Today Hannah and Josiah visited a Russian Orthodox Church in their area.

When it comes to what I am chose to attach myself to as a Christian I would say Protestantism. I am a Protestant and not Eastern Orthodox or Russian Orthodox. I like being in the Christian Tradition of the Protestant Reformers and the 17th century English Puritans. I also like American conservative evangelicalism. In other words I could never worship among Roman Catholics or Russian Orthodox Christians. Also I am a loner. In the end I do not feel comfortable with any modern Christian movement in America.

So here I sit talking to myself. Existence keeps flowing by. No way out.
