This morning we took Rudy for a walk at Kollen Park. When we got home my wife went to worship the Lord God with a group of professing Christians in a building called a church.
I got up this morning around 6:24 AM. When I got up I made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. When Carol got up she made blueberry muffins and I made oatmeal for breakfast. Yesterday Carol made another blueberry pie.
After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and read for morning worship "'Return to Me' A Biblical Theology of Repentance" by Mark J. Boda (New Studies In Biblical Theology).
Yesterday afternoon I hardly remember. I mainly read yesterday the novel, "There But For The" by Ali Smith. I am almost finished reading this novel and will start reading next the novel, "The Book Of Strange New Things" by Michael Faber.
Our son Josiah called us last night. He was at his wife's parents house relaxing. Hannah's Dad had a birthday and they were there (Lynden, Washington) for his birthday party. (Josiah and Hannah live on Mercer Island, Washington.) At the end of this month Carol is flying out to visit Josiah and Hannah for a week. I will stay home to wait for the end of the world. Keep home fires burning. I plan to wait it out alone here while Carol is gone. What else can I do?
Not much else to report. Right now I am tired which is normal. I do not look forward to my gallbladder surgery this coming Tuesday, but what can I do. I sure will be glad when this surgery is over and I can go on to the next ordeal.
Last night we went to bed early so I do not know why I feel so drained. Weird.

I will close to wait it out.
" When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house:
 Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.
 When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:
 Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.
 If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpiller; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be;
 What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house:
 Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)
 That they may fear thee all the days that they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers." First Kings 8:33-40
sermon by C. H. Spurgeon "shall know every man the plague of his own heart"
