let repentance afflict the charms of evil with befitting sadness

It is now in the Death Flow 7:58 PM Wednesday night Eastern Standard Time. It has been thus far a normal day of life for me. Hopefully nothing horrible will happen from now till I close down for the night. We never know when everything could go South.

This evening our middle child Josiah called to talk to his Mom and Dad. Josiah will be 34 years old this coming August. I will be 64 years old this coming August. When I was 34 years old Carol and I had been married going on three years. When we moved to Jackson Mississippi to attend Reformed Theological Seminary Caleb and Josiah were little, now they are grown men working and married. Our lives just speed day. We will soon stand before the judgment seat of Christ Jesus the King of Glory.

I also talk on the phone with our daughter Bethany. Beth called to talk to her mother, but Carol was still sleeping so I talked to Beth for awhile. Beth is now married with two little girls and pregnant with a third child.

I mainly read today a book titled, "The Art Of Flight" a memoir by Sergio Pitol Translated From The Spanish By George Henson.

I did not go anywhere today. It was a quiet day. I suppose I will close to read and wait for darkness to fall.

old diary entry August 14, 2003

"[10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
[11] Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
[12] For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.
[13] For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.
[14] For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
[15] And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again." Second Corinthians 5:10-15
