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.
" In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 The same was in the beginning with God.
 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
 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:
 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
 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.
 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.
 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
 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 1:1-18
