Bibles For Mexico

I left the house for a few minutes this morning and visited a thrift store a few minutes from where we live out our middle class lives. I found these used books today to add to the heap-

"Washington, D.C." a novel by Gore Vidal hardback

"No-Man's Land: One Man's Odyssey Through The Odyssey" travel memoir by Scott Huler

"The Birchbark House" a children's book by Louise Erdrich

"Love Medicine" a novel by Louise Erdrich (expanded edition)

Holy Bible Large Print Edition hardback very old but readable

I have been mainly today running around the house like a chicken with his head cut off. Carol went to bed after making a big pot of rich creamy potato soup. Well nothing else to report.

I suppose I should mention that this morning Carol and I went grocery shopping again. Carol needed some stuff to make potato soup. After grocery shopping we drove out to Salvation Army thrift store so I could get that Updike novel, "In The Beauty Of The Lilies," that I wanted to add to my John Updike Collection. I want to get back into reading that biography on John Updike titled, "Updike" by Adam Begley this year.

"[22] The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
[23] I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
[24] When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
[25] Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
[26] While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
[27] When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
[28] When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
[29] When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
[30] Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
[31] Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
[32] Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
[33] Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
[34] Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
[35] For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
[36] But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death." Proverbs 8:22-36
