I got up this morning around 7:35 AM. My wife was already up reading through the Sunday morning newspapers. I made for us a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. A person could live on oatmeal, water, and apples.
I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read, "Instructions About Heartwork". I am still reading in the mornings for devotions these books.
Bible (I have near me eight Bibles as I type these words.)
"The Love of God: A Canonical Model" by John C. Peckham
"Hidden But Now Revealed: A Biblical Theology of Mystery" by G. K. Beale & Benjamin L. Gladd
"From Creation to New Creation: Biblical Theology and Exegesis" Editors Daniel M. Gurtner & Benjamin L. Gladd
"Psalm 1-72" Old Testament VII [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Herman J. Selderhuis
I mentioned I have near our main computer eight Bibles-here is a list of the Bibles near me as I write these words-I love the Holy Scriptures!
Holy Bible (King James Version)
Holy Bible (New King James Version)
Holy Bible (Large Print King James Version-this Bible I have had going on 40 years-plain text No study notes)
Holy Bible (New International Version-Large Print)
The New International Study Bible
New Geneva Study Bible-New King James Version (this is a Study Bible for evangelical Calvinist/mildly Reformed)
The MacArthur Study Bible (English Standard Version)
Holy Bible (King James Version-this Bible belonged to Carol's parents-they read always read this Bible at meals around the table-family Bible reading)
I also have Cruden's Complete Concordance near me. Also these books near me-
Psalter Hymnal (We always went to churches where the Psalms were sung)
"Liturgies Of The Western Church" Selected And Introduced By Bard Thompson
"Doctrinal Standards, Liturgy, and Church Order" Netherlands Reformed Congregations (We went to churches for a number of years where the Belgic Confession of Faith, The Heidelberg Catechism, and The Canons of Dort were preached/taught/explained. We also went to churches where the Westminster Standards were preached/taught/explained)
"The Shorter Catechism with Scripture Proofs"
Q1: What is the chief end of man?
A: Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever
So the morning crawls by-my wife just left for Covenant PCA-this church holds to the Westminster Standards/these confessions were composed by the 17th century English Puritans.
I suppose I will close-late this morning our oldest son Caleb, Emily his wife and Josie are coming over for family time. We might watch professional football this afternoon. Yesterday we watched college football all day.
