I got up this morning around 5:45 AM. Carol took care of Josie during the night. Caleb and Emily slept down in the lower level.
Carol and I skyped Andy, Bethany, and Lousia last night before the arrival of Caleb, Emily, and Josie. We received a phone call from Josiah while we were all in the living room setting up Amazon Prime on our Smart TV. Joe and his wife Hannah live in the state of Washington. Joe and Hannah are spending the Christmas holy days with his wife's kinfolk. Right now it looks like Joe and Hannah will come here during Spring break next year. Carol plans this Summer 2015 to fly out and visit with Joe and Hannah in Washington. In February Carol plans to fly to Arizona and visit with Beth, Andy and Lou. I am afraid of flying in airplanes so I will stay home in contemplative silence before the Lord Jesus Christ.
This morning after making coffee I wrote in my paper diary and held Josie for awhile. I got out these books to read this morning if I can focus my brain-
"Moral Reflections on the Book of Job" Volume 1 "Preface and Books 1-5" by Gregory the Great
"A New Heaven and a New Earth: Reclaiming Biblical Eschatology" by J. Richard Middleton
"Reading Backwards: Figural Christology and the Fourfold Gospel Witness" by Richard B. Hays
Well I will close to face the new day. Existence keeps zooming by!
