the interior awareness of holy love

It is 4:40 PM late Monday afternoon. It is already getting dark outside. Right now it is rain ice snow water. I am glad I am not getting off some low paying job and having to drive home in this dangerous winter weather. I am sure some people will die tonight driving home from work. All the time people are dying and going into a fixed eternal state. I have burning in my heart a longing to be with the Lord. "Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith" Phil. 3:8,9.

I just got back from picking up my old Dodge van from the auto repair shop. My van needed a new battery, nothing major. Carol took her car in this morning for an oil change before we went grocery shopping.

I spent the afternoon messing with our main computer, writing in my paper diary and reading my books. Not much else to report. I might watch tonight a professional football game. I am sure I will go to bed early tonight. Existence keeps speeding by!

Today I mainly read from these two books-

"Lectio Divina: The Medieval Experience of Reading" by Duncan Robertson

"Moral Reflections on the Book of Job" Volume 1 "Preface and Books 1-5" by Gregory the Great [Translated by Brian Kerns, OCSO

Well I will close to look at a book titled, "Reading To Live: The Evolving Practice of Lectio Divina" by Raymond Studzinski, OSB.
