It is in the flow of existence 10:06 PM Thursday night. It was a normal day for me. I basically read my books and drifted through Time. Around 4 o’clock PM this afternoon I woke up my wife and asked her what she wanted from a local Mexican restaurant for dinner. We had Mexican take out for our evening meal. We were not in the mood for more turkey meat for dinner. We have been eating turkey meat since last Monday.

After dinner I read and now I am writing in one of my online diaries. Carol has gone to bed for the night and I have been reading the novel, “City On Fire” by Hallberg in our dining room. I plan to go to bed around 11 o’clock PM tonight.

This afternoon around 3 o’clock PM I went to our Credit Union and then I visited a near by thrift store in search of used books. I found these used books this afternoon to ADD to our family library-

I suppose I will close to read until I get tired. I can still hear outside tonight the wind howling. This coming Saturday we are suppose to get six inches of snow. There is no way out.

"[12] Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
[13] And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
[14] But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
[15] But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
[16] Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
[17] Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
[18] But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." Second Corinthians 3:12-18
