the face of God in light and glory

It is 3:07 PM Friday afternoon here by Lake Michigan. It has been a very cold sunny day thus far. I wish I had the energy to go for a walk so as to take photos, but I am wasted.

I volunteered at the Herrick District Public Library used books store The Book Nook from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM. While at the Book Nook when not helping people with their purchases or wandering the store I read 'Sanctification' by Michael Allen. I brought for my free book for volunteering a book titled, 'The Arms of Krupp 1587-1968' by William Manchester.

When I got home Carol was home from spending the morning with one of her girlfriends. I ate lunch and then wrote in my paper diary. Existence keeps flowing by.

I do not remember last night right now. I am tired and my mind is not functioning. I will close to sit and doze. Carol is going to bed to sleep awhile before going to work tonight. Carol works the next three nights and then is off nine days.

I think last night we watched taped television shows and went to bed around 10 o'clock PM. I think I mainly read yesterday when not doing stuff from a book titled, 'For Love & Money: A Writing Life 1969-1989' by Jonathan Raban.

I did get out to read this afternoon from a book titled, 'Justification and the Gospel: Understanding The Contexts And Controversies' by R. Michael Allen. I want to read soon in this book Chapter 2 'Justification and Participation: the Ground and Goal of the Gospel'pg.33.

Well time to close to and go on to the next thing. Existence keeps speeding by. Now is the Day of Salvation.

"[1] Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
[2] Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
[3] Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
[4] Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
[5] Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
[6] Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
[7] Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

[8] For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
[9] For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
[10] For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
[11] So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
[12] For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
[13] Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off." Isaiah 55:1-13
