the mind's ecstatic entry into the life of God 
21st-Aug-2018 04:40 pm
It is now in the ongoing death flow 4:26 PM Tuesday late afternoon. This day has gone by like all my other days. I am thankful for quiet days where nothing happens. I like doing nothing but waiting to find out what kills me/takes me out of this life into the life to come.

I went to my dentist appointment around 10:50 AM and was home by Noon. My teeth are doing fine. When I got home from the dentist office I ate lunch and made a fresh pot of coffee. After lunch I wrote in my paper diary and messed with our main computer.

I read this afternoon once again from Volume One of the two volume work 'The Devil's Redemption: A New History And Interpretation Of Christian Universalism' by Michael J. McClymond. After reading for awhile 'The Devil's Redemption' I dozed in the living room. It is so nice in my old age to sit in a quiet house and just close my eyes and doze. I now know why old people sleep or take naps. When we close our eyes we can dream about the days when we were young and full of fire. Now the fire has become a slow burn.

I did read after dozing for awhile from a memoir titled, 'I Will Be Complete: A Memoir' by Glen David Gold.

I thought about leaving the house this afternoon to go visit thrift stores in search of used books to add to our library. But I decided maybe tomorrow morning I will go visit thrift stores. There is always tomorrow.

I do not know what I will the rest of this day. I suppose I will close and just sit in silence.

Hi, I haven't been on LiveJournal in a long time. I check on it every once in a while but I don't know much about how to navigate it so I'm limited to just posting. Ever since I started working 5 years ago, I haven't gotten many dreams to share. :( How are you? Still kicking, I see!

The days just keep going by. For me writing is like breathing. People have come and gone over the many years I have been writing in LJ. To me it is so easy to just sit down each day and write something in LJ. Glad to read all is going well with you. Instead of writing about your dreams why not write about just life.

If I wrote about my life I would end up telling people too much about my family's business. I used Facebook for that. Haha. I don't know how to hold things back aka keep my mouth shut. I started this as a dream journal and I've recently deleted almost everything I've written on here that isn't about dreams. I guess I really just want it to be about dreams. If I write about my life, I go back and delete it, same as paper diaries I had as a kid. My sister wouldn't leave it alone and told all my business. I usually regret my honesty online. I share too much already in real life and sometimes on Facebook. I'm amazed when I look back and read the dreams I used to have. Some of them make a lot more sense now and some of them seem like they could possibly happen in the future. God used to keep me entertained when I was a stay-at-home-mom who's husband was always working. I guess he thinks I'm too busy for him now. Oh well.. I'm glad you are doing good and are still writing on here. It's nice to come on here and see some things haven't changed.

Over the years I have been writing in LJ my life has changed-I am older-have six grandchildren-our oldest son just bought a house down the street from us-my wife will be retiring in five months-I am going bald-the world is more messed up-but all you can do is pray for the Lord to come soon.

Yeh, mine has changed a lot too. Still waiting for Jesus. My kids are growing up fast. 12 and 9 years old.
