Christ should be continually sought until he is found

It is 2:56 PM Friday afternoon in the flow of life. I am down in the lower level writing on my lap top computer. I feel sleepy because I have been up since 5:45 AM this morning. I got up way too early this morning!

I have had thus far a normal day. I spent the morning reading, writing and messing with our main computer. Late this morning Carol and I went grocery shopping. I am still sticking to a diet so I do not buy the kind of food I would like to eat. I eat practically nothing I enjoy eating. I would like to eat junk food, but must eat food that will cause me to not gain weight. When you get my age food becomes a big source of pleasure since sexual pleasure is not as intense as when you were younger. In the end I suppose you have to be thankful for the basics like good food and a roof over your head.

Carol and I were back home from grocery shopping around 12:45 PM. I have spent the afternoon reading and wandering the house. I need to move so as not to fall asleep.

Carol works tonight so she needs to take a nap this afternoon.

I have been mainly reading today from a novel titled, "Laura Warholic or, The Sexual Intellectual" by Alexander Theroux.

Last night I watched some of a professional football game and went to bed early. Carol came to bed soon after I did.

I did not sleep soundly last night due to weird dreams. Well not much else to report. I forgot to mention that other day while out visiting thrift stores I found one used book to ADD to our library-

"Berlin: Tales of the City by Lillian Hellman, Josephine Baker, Bertolt Brecht, Christa Wolf, Franz Kafka, Thomas Pynchon" Edited by John Miller & Tim Smith.

Isaiah chapter 55
[1] Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
[2] Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
[3] Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
[4] Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
[5] Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
[6] Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
[7] Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
[8] For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
[9] For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
[10] For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
[11] So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
[12] For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
[13] Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
