the new self draws its life from Christ

It is 1:53 PM Monday afternoon here in west Michigan. It is a gray rainy afternoon.

I just got back from volunteering at the local library used books store The Book Nook from 9:50 AM till 1 o'clock PM. The store was not busy and not slow today. I read when not helping people from a book titled, 'The Ecstasy of Influence' essays by Jonathan Lethem. I am rereading this volume of essays by Lethem.

I brought home from the Book Nook these used books-

'Blue Nights' a memoir by Joan Didion

'In Defense Of Food: An Eater's Manifesto' by Michael Pollan

'Food Rules: An Eater's Manual' by Michael Pollan

'Modern Lovers' a novel by Emma Straub

This morning I got up early because some weird dream woke me up. I have this recurring dream where I am graduating from High School. High School was for me was a very stressful time. I am thankful for being an old man, even though I do not look forward to dying. My desire is to fall asleep in Jesus and wake up in the presence of the Lord of Glory the Lord Jesus Christ. I can think of nothing more horrible than to die and go to Hell. Hell is be forever being out of the presence of the Lord Jesus, who is all together lovely and full of glory.

I got up this morning made oatmeal for breakfast and then messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read for devotions from a book titled, 'Conformed To The Image Of His Son: Reconsidering Paul's Theology Of Glory In Romans' by Haley Goranson Jacob. Carol got home from work around 8:35 AM and went to bed for the day around 9:10 AM.

Last night I made a video for my Youtube channel and read, 'The Ecstasy of Influence' essays by Jonathan Lethem.

Well, I will close to wait to see our plumber will come to complete installing our new toilet.

Do high school nightmares ever end? My dad and I both still get them, too.

I do not know why I have these dreams about either being in High School or finishing High School. I am amazed I did graduate from High School. I am amazed I graduated from college and seminary. I am really not smart. But in my old age does it really matter any more if I finished High School. I am always thankful when I wake up from these dreams knowing it was only a dream. It must be difficult to not have finished High School. peace
