I have been up since 5:25 AM this morning, because our dog woke me because he had to go to the bathroom. So I got up and let him outside. When I went back to bed my mind is awake so I got up to face the day. I told myself I can always take a nap if I find it impossible to keep my eyes open.
This morning I have been doing the usual things like mess with our main computer, watch the birds by our bird feeder, read, write in my paper diary and wander my cell. I picked up my wife this morning when she was done with work. She is now off four nights.
I have been mainly reading this morning a book I read late into the night last night titled, "The Presence Of God: Its Place In The Storyline Of Scripture And The Story Of Our Lives" by J. Ryan Lister.
I also looked at these books this morning-
"Orthodox Spirituality: A Practical Guide For The Faithful And A Definitive Manual For The Scholar" by Dumitru Staniloae
"Orthodox Psychotherapy: The Science of the Fathers" by Metropolitan of Nafpaktos Hierotheos [translated by Esther Williams]
I plan to read and contemplative today. Well not much else to report so I will close to immerse myself in stillness.
