He will reveal his glory

It is now in the flow of divine providence 9:55 AM Monday morning Eastern Standard Time. Outside this morning it is 31 degrees and wet gray. It is ugly weather this morning. It usually stays this way till the middle of May here in West Michigan. Spring time is cold and gray by Lake Michigan typically.

I got up this morning around 6:54 AM. I got up because it was the right thing to do considering all my options. I got up made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, "The Presence Of God: Its Place In The Storyline Of Scripture And The Story Of Our Lives" by J. Ryan Lister. Carol got up around 8:40 AM and I made us oatmeal for breakfast. So has gone by our simple Christian life in the American Empire.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I might visit local thrift stores this morning. This afternoon a plumber is stopping by to give us an estimate on installing a new shower down here in the lower level. Our present shower system needs replacement and now is the time. When Rudy goes to heaven we are going to get new carpet and new kitchen cabinets. We also want to fix up our fireplace in the future. We want to get our tomb in good order as we get older and older.

Yesterday I basically read all day and wrote in my diary. I read mainly yesterday the book "Introducing Bible Hermeneutics: A Comprehensive Framework for Hearing God In Scripture" by Craig G. Bartholomew.

Today we are getting in the mail a back-up hard drive so as to download all our photos into for safe storage/keeping. Carol wants to dump into this new hard drive her cellphone photos and movies.

I suppose I will close to face what comes next down the trail.

"[22] Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
[23] And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
[24] For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
[25] Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
[26] A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
[27] And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
[28] And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
[29] I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
[30] And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
[31] Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
[32] Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
[33] Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.
[34] And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
[35] And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
[36] Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
[37] Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
[38] As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD." Ezekiel 36:22-38
