It is in the flow of this day Monday August 3, 2015 8:02 PM. Another day has gone by and I am closer to the finish line. I remember those words of the apostle Paul, "Do you not know that those who run in a race, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it" 1 Corinth. 9:24.

I had today a normal day. I did work for over two hours this afternoon mowing our lawn and cutting down plant growth. I came into the house from doing yard work around 1:35 PM. I took a hot shower and cooled off in our dining room under a ceiling fan. Carol went to bed around 2:30 PM because she had to go back to work after being off nine days.

I spent the afternoon basically wandering the house. I messed with our main computer and sat doing nothing. I took pictures of wildflowers in our wildflower garden. The wildflowers are slowly dying presently. We are headed toward Autumn and plants start decaying.

I cooked for my wife a turkey burger this afternoon. I could not get myself to cook hamburgers after cooking a turkey burger. I am really not into meat. I am not a big meat eater. I really do not enjoy eating food.

Carol went to work around 7 o'clock PM. She left early for work because she wanted to stop by a Rehab place to visit a friend/Pam who is 90 years old/see how Pam was doing because Carol had been away on vacation and had not seen her for a week. My wife is an angel of mercy.

I got out this evening from the lower level this book to look at before going to bed, "Politics: Observations & Arguments 1966-2004" essays by Hendrik Hertzberg. I think I was reading this book a month ago. I have really enjoyed reading Hertzberg's essays on American politics/a real sharp wit.

Well there is not much else to confess to the wind so I will close to read and wait for darkness to fall.

"[16] For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
[17] For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.
[18] What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.
[19] For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
[20] And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
[21] To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
[22] To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
[23] And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
[24] Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
[25] And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
[26] I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
[27] But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." 1 Corinthians 9:16-27
