the individualization and interiorization of the religious life

It is in the flow of being alive 12:10 PM Monday Noon Eastern Standard Time. Outside this afternoon the sun is shining. We never know when the sun will decide to disappear. Some day there will be no sun or moon. In the New Creation the only Light will be the light of God's glory. "And he showed me a pure river of water life, clear as crystal. proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of the street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever" Rev. 22:1-5.

I got up this morning around 6:13 AM. I slept better last night, which I am thankful for. There is no sleep in the Eternal State/no such thing as soul sleep or eternal rest. I got up made myself a bowl of oatmeal and drank coffee made yesterday. I ate my oatmeal in front of our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read my Reformation commentary on the Gospel of Luke. I also read from a booklet titled, 'Piety: The Heartbeat of Reformed Theology" by Joel Beeke. Carol got home from work around 9 o'clock AM and went to bed around 9:35 AM for the day.

I left the house this morning to visit thrift stores in search of used books to ADD to our Book Collection. I found these used books this morning at various thrift stores-

"The House of Rumour" a novel Jake Arnott

"Witness to an Extreme Century" A Memoir by Robert Jay Lifton

"The War Of The World: Twentieth-Century Conflict and the Descent of the West" by Niall Ferguson (We have in our small town library another book by Niall Ferguson titled, "The House Of Rothschild: Money's Prophets 1798-1848".)

"Selected Writings" (Penguin Classics) by Samuel Johnson (I read awhile back an excellent biography on the life of Samuel Johnson by W. Jackson Bate titled, "Samuel Johnson".)

"Late Victorian Holocausts: El Nino, Famines, And The Making Of The Third World" by Mike Davis

"In Paradise" a novel by Peter Mattiessen ( I collect the writings of Peter Mattiessen.)

"The Good Apprentice" a novel by Iris Murdoch (I collect the writings of Iris Murdoch. Murdoch is one of my favorite writers.)

After visiting thrift stores I came home to have lunch and wait out existence.

Last night I watched on DVD the movie "Ghost World" and went to bed and read, "The Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia" by Deleuze & Guattari late into the night. Also I read yesterday from these two books-

"The Mighty Walzer" a novel by Howard Jacobson

Well, I will close to face the day ahead of me with courage and determination. I will not go down without a ferocious fight.
