It is in the flow of existence 8:30 AM Monday morning. Outside this morning it is cloudy with some sunlight peeking through the cloud cover.

I have been up since 6:25 AM this morning. When I got up my wife was cooking a big turkey dinner. Carol bought a big turkey because it was on sale and we are eating some of it this afternoon (an early Thanks Giving Feast). We invited Brother Tim over this afternoon to help us eat the turkey. So I got up messed with our main computer and then made oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and have been reading my Reformation Commentary on Psalms 1-72. I am reading in this commentary on Psalm 6.

Last night my wife and I watched professional football and went to bed around 10:30 PM.

I got out this morning to look at a commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews by A. W. Pink. I mentioned this commentary in one of my recent videos. Several years ago I sold most of my books by A. W. Pink but I kept a few because they were my favorites (I wish now I had not sold any of my Pink books, but what was done can't be undone, so suck it up. Be brave and be thankful for what books you still have.) I kept the commentary on Hebrews by Pink because it was the book that lead me to reading the 17th century English Puritans. After reading Pink on Hebrews I started buying all of Pink's books and they were a blessing during the early days of my growth in a theological understanding of Christian doctrine/Calvinism.

In my early days of embracing the Doctrines of Grace/Calvinism/Reformed Faith the writers I read were men like C. H. Spurgeon, Dr. Lloyd-Jones, B. B. Warfield, Thomas Boston, John Murray and a host of others. Now I read all over the Christian spiritual landscape. For some reason I see Christian doctrine to be deep as the ocean and high as the sky above. As a Christian one can never assume they have come to an exhaustive knowledge of biblical truth/doctrine. I personally have reach the state of unknowing/contemplative silence before the Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, The Logos. "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him" John 1:17,18.

Carol goes back to work tonight. Existence keeps flowing by faster than light.

Yesterday Carol and I, Grandma and Grandpa had a nice time with our oldest son Caleb, his wife Emily and their baby daughter Josephine Joy. After lunch we all took a three mile walk at Outdoor Discovery Center. Caleb, Emily, and Josie left around 4:40 PM yesterday. Carol went to church and when she got home we watched professional football.

I read last night read some of the novel, "The Good Apprentice" by Iris Murdoch. I also read yesterday the Puritan volume, "Instructions About Heartwork" by Richard Alleine.

Well, I will close to read my Bible and go through the day. There is no way of escape.
