It is now in the death flow 5:55 PM Monday evening. It looks like it is going to rain sometime this evening the way it feels right now. It has been 80 degrees inside my cell all day, but it feels like things are cooling off finally. I hate sleeping in a pool of human sweat during the night.

Right now my wife is sleeping because she works tonight from Midnight till 8 o'clock AM tomorrow.

I have a day where I am felt dislocated. It will take some time to get back to my normal routine now that Josiah and Hannah have left for their place in Washington State.

I spent the day basically wandering my cell and waiting Time out. I have read only the mystical treatise THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING. I did not go anywhere today. Existence just went by like it usually does.

I have noticed lately how many times people use the word FUN. I do not like the word FUN. I do not believe in FUN. To me nothing is FUN. Why do people seek FUN? I notice people are always seeking FUN, but not the Lord Jesus Christ. It seems to me people worship FUN and not God. To me most of what people do is not fun, but death. People are silently killing themselves as they have FUN (destroying their souls before the altar of FUN). There is no FUN in hell.

I did read something else besides THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING today. I got out of our library this afternoon a book I bought when we were at Reformed Theological Seminary Jackson Miss. titled, "English Mystics of the Fourteenth Century" by T. W. Coleman. In this book there is a chapter devoted to the mystical treatise THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING.

Well I suppose I will close to wait to see if it rains this evening.

"[1] Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
[2] That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
[3] For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
[4] Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
[5] Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

[6] For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
[7] But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer." First Peter 4:1-7
