disobedience to God brings death

I seem to always describe my mood as contemplative. I suppose I am always in at least lately in a contemplative state. I do not feel depressed and do not feel joyous either. I am coasting emotionally. I am not up or down. I am in the middle. There are times I feel angry or frustrated, but not often. I do have mood swings. Lately I have felt quiet. I tell my wife I am a slow burn. When I was younger I was fire, now I am a slow burn/hot coals. I do feel a love for God and a love for my wife. I do feel compassion for humanity. I want a soft heart. I do not want to be a bitter old man. I want to be heavenly.

I had a normal time at the library book nook today. It was not busy and it was not slow either. I read while at the book nook my new book "God Has Spoken: A History of Christian Theology" by Gerald Bray.

I brought home from the book nook three used books to add to our library-

"The Burgess Boys" a novel by Elizabeth Strout

"Explorers of the Nile: The Triumph and Tragedy of a Great Victorian Adventure" by Tim Jeal

"The Pickwick Papers" a novel by Charles Dickens

When I got home from the book nook I ate lunch and then wrote in my paper diary. Carol left to see a play in which one of her nieces son's is acting in at the Holland Civic theatre.

I have no plans for the rest of the day. I will close to see what came in the mail and then make a fresh pot of coffee. Existence keeps speeding by! No way of escape. "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences" 2 Corinth. 5:10,11
