I am having a difficult time this morning staying awake. I can't come up with a good reason to stay awake today.
Carol and I both got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. When we got up I made us a pot of fresh coffee and a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal at our dining room table surrounded by books and my paper diary August 2018. After breakfast I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary.
Carol left this morning to do errands and I have been reading from these books-
'Introducing Medieval Biblical Interpretation: The Senses of Scripture in Premodern Exegesis' by Ian Christopher Levy
'The Good & Evil Serpent: How A Universal Symbol Became Christianized' by James H. Charlesworth
'The Gospel of John: A Commentary' by Frederick Dale Bruner
'John' Interpreted by Early Church and Medieval Commentators
'Seeing God: The Beatific Vision in Christian Tradition' by Hans Boersma
Last night Carol and I watched television and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. Today I plan to read my books and write in my paper diary. Carol will be home sometime this afternoon. We are all coming to the end of our days.
" And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." John 3:13-20
