Carol left me to visit a friend who just moved into a new apartment.
I thought about going someplace, but I do not like the house this late in the day. There is always tomorrow or next week to go someplace. Tomorrow I volunteer at the Herrick Public Library used books store from 10 AM till 1 PM. I might watch college football games tomorrow if I am in the mood. Soon college football will be over for another year.
I do not know what we will do tonight. I am sure Carol will go to bed early since she has been up since 4:10 AM. I have been up since 7:10 AM this morning. It is too late in the day to take a nap. It is getting that time of day I put away my books and my paper diary and go into the night hours. I am not sure if it is a good time to go to Africa.
Our daughter Beth called to tell us little Louisa is sick again. Louisa has been sick a lot lately. Our hearts go out to our children and their children. It must be very painful to lose a child or a grandchild by death. I am thankful our children reached adulthood.
My mother died when she was 36 years old December 1968. I never knew my father. I wonder how long my father lived. I am amazed I have lived to be 62 years old! Growing old is weird.
I suppose I will close to drift into the darkness.
" But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." Second Corinthians 4:3-6
