building a godly home

It is 3:18 PM Sunday afternoon on a cold dreary day. I already miss the warm days of Autumn.

I have had a normal day thus far. I really have done nothing today. I was up around 6 o'clock AM this morning. I did all the things I usually do each morning. Carol got up around 7 o'clock AM. She just went to sleep since she works tonight and tomorrow night. My wife is a professional nurse at a near by community hospital.

I read today from these books when not wandering the house-

"The Death of the Messiah and the Birth of the New Covenant: A (Not So) New Model of the Atonement" by Michael J. Gorman

"Building a Godly Home" Volume 1 'A Holy Vision for Family Life' by William Gouge (1575-1653)

We have in our library Volume 3 of "Building a Godly Home 'Holy Vision for Raising Children'. Yesterday we received this volume from Reformed Heritage Books. We did not have Volume 2 of "Building a Godly Home" 'A Holy Vision for a Happy Marriage', so I ordered this volume from Amazon this afternoon. If we have volumes 1 and 3 of this series might as well get volume 2 'A Holy Vision for a Happy Marriage'. I collect Puritan works anyway so why not get the whole series. I also ordered from Amazon volume 1 of "The Works of William Perkins" coming out next month, also published by Reformed Heritage Books.

"The Works of William Perkins"

I have not gone anywhere today. Carol went to church this morning and got home around Noon. When she got home I was reading my Bible and writing in my paper diary.

I did watch some professional football this afternoon. I am not in the mood to take a nap this afternoon. I might just sit in silence this afternoon. I want to live a Christian contemplative life.

Last night we watched college football and went to bed around 10:30 PM.

Now it the first day of another week. We will be in the middle of the month next Saturday. Time is just flying by!

Well, I suppose I will close to drift.

"[21] Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
[22] Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
[23] For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
[24] Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
[25] Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
[26] That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
[27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
[28] So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
[29] For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
[30] For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
[31] For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
[32] This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
[33] Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." Ephesians 5:21-33
