I had a quiet day wandering the house and reading my books. I did not go anywhere today. There is no place new to go to in this area of West Michigan. I have seen everything there is to see around here. It seems my life goes in circles. I am always it seems at the same spot. I like this spot I am chained to. I am free in Christ Jesus. I can swim in the ocean of God’s love in this tiny spot I inhabit.
My wife went to bed early tonight. I have been sitting in the dark preparing myself to go to bed. I have been reading a novel this evening titled, “Amy and Isabelle” by Elizabeth Strout.
I have nothing going on tomorrow. I am blessed with salvation in Christ Jesus so I am going to the New Creation when I die.
Carol has a friend dying of cancer. One of Carol’s sister-in-law’s twin brother is dying of cancer. Carol can handle death, but I find being around dying people crushing. I never got over my mother’s death.
So I suppose I will close to go to bed. I do not like going to bed, but I do not like staying up all night either. We all need are beauty sleep.
" Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinth. 15:51-58
