It is 12:33 PM Tuesday afternoon here where I am at presently. I do not know what time it is on the planet Mars right now. I wonder if God keeps track of Time? I know Time is coming to a End.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I was woke up from a Peter Dexter (who is an American writer) dream this morning. I got up made a pot of coffee and ate a bowl of cereal. I ate my cereal messing with our main computer. The world is going to the dogs.

After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read for devotions the book, "God has Spoken in his Son: A biblical theology of Hebrews" by Peter T. O'Brien. Carol got home from work around 8:52 AM and went to bed around 9:10 AM. This morning I got the courage to go visit thrift stores in search of used books to ADD to our library. I found these used books this morning-

"The Writer's Chapbook: A Compendium of Fact, Opinion, Wit, and Advice from 20th Century's Preeminent Writers" Edited from The Paris Review interviews and with an Introduction by George Plimpton

"Jack Maggs" a novel by Peter Carey

I paid all together $4.50 for these used books. A nice little used books haul this morning.

Last night I basically listened to music, messed with our main computer and read late into the night the novel, "Mickelsson's Ghosts" by John Gardner. Now it is another day. Outside this afternoon it is humid and hot so we have the AC on to keep the house cool. It is suppose to rain sometime this evening.

I am going to close to face It. I am trapped.

"[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
[15] John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
[16] And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
[17] For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
[18] No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." John 1:14-18
