It is now in the flow 6:04 PM Sunday evening. Another day has gone by without telling me exactly why. It was another peaceful day. I am thankful for peaceful days. I think of all the people in the world who live lives full of mental chaos. It must be horrible to live lives where you are out of control. To be a slave to your lusts and to never know inner peace/contentment/happiness/the joy of the Holy Ghost. I remember these words of the apostle Paul, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" Phil. 4:6,7.

I spent the afternoon hours reading from a book titled, "Language For God In Patristic Tradition" by Mark Sheridan. I laid down for a nap around 2 o'clock PM and woke up around 4 o'clock PM. I took my daily hot shower and then got out to read a book titled, "Journals 1952-2000" by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.. I read and then wrote in my paper diary for the last time today.

Carol got up and then got ready to go back to Covenant PCA. Carol mentioned me today she is planning on driving over to Grand Rapids in the morning to visit Emily and Josephine at their new apartment. Emily has to be there for the Internet connection guy to install internet service for them. I do not plan to go with Carol since I see no reason to. Carol has to come home immediately because she works tomorrow night. If Carol was off tomorrow then I would go because then we could go out for lunch someplace and visit bookstores. Since Carol works tomorrow night there is no time to hang-out in Grand Rapids after visiting Emily and Josie.

Today is our oldest son's birthday, Caleb is now 34 years old. He is suppose to fly into Grand Rapids this week from Boston, but maybe the bad winter storm hitting the Northeast might prevent that from happening.

I do not know what I will do tonight. I suppose I will close to drift. I will go sit in the dark till Carol gets home from church. I have no desire to conquer the world. I remember the words of the Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples before His exodus, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world" John 16:33.
