Jesus serves to mirror God

It is in the cosmic flow of the present created order 2:31 PM Saturday afternoon. The sun came out this afternoon here by Lake Michigan. It would be a nice afternoon to take a walk in the woods.

I had a normal time at the library used books store. It was not busy but I sold $41.00 dollars of used materials. When not helping people with their purchases I read with my spiritual enjoyment a book titled, "Theology and the Mirror of Scripture: A Mere Evangelical Account" by Kevin J. Vanhoozer & Daniel J. Treier. I brought home from the book nook these used books to add to our library-

"A Map Of Betrayal" a novel by Ha Jin

"Run with the Horsemen" a novel by Ferrol Sams

"The Whisper of the River" a novel by Ferrol Sams

"When All the World Was Young" a novel by Ferrol Sams

After getting out of the book nook I drove over to Simpatico Coffee to pick up a 5 lbs. bag of black and tan coffee beans we had ordered this morning. After getting the coffee beans I visited a thrift store and found two used books to add to our library-

"You Are Not Like Other Mothers" a novel by Angelika Schrobsdorff (Translated from the German by Steven Rendall) This is a book published by Europa. I collect anything published by Europa.

"The Fall" a novel by Simon Mawer (I have two other novels by Mawer in our library.)

When I got home I found Carol gone. I ate lunch and wrote in my paper diary. I have been watching off and on a college football game. Existence keeps decaying. The Lord God reigns! I will close to wait for the end of the old creation.

"[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
[2] The same was in the beginning with God.
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
[4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
[5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
[6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
[7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
[8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
[9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
[10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
[11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
[12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
[13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
[15] John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
[16] And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
[17] For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
[18] 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 1:1-18
