we live in God

It is 10:22 AM Sunday morning in the death flow. It is a hot humid day here by Lake Michigan. We are in the last days of Summer 2016. Existence is speeding towards the Day of Judgment.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. Carol was already up cooking food. I ate breakfast and then wrote in my paper diary. Soon Josiah and Hannah were up, they shove off for home tomorrow morning.

This morning Carol and the kids went to Covenant PCA. I have been wandering my cell and reading for morning devotions the mystical treatise THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING written in the 14th century by an unknown monk. The treatise "The Cloud of Unknowing" is one of my favorite books.

This afternoon Caleb, Emily and Josie are coming over from GR to have lunch with us.

Last night I basically just sat till bedtime. My brain was too tired last night to read any of my books.

Well I will close to drift through the day. Existence keeps zooming by!

"[12] And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
[13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
[14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
[15] And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
[16] And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
[17] For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" Rev. 6:12-17

"[1] There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
[2] The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
[3] Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
[4] Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
[5] Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
[6] That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
[7] Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." John 3:1-7
