the culture of classicism

It is 1:11 PM Wednesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a cold sunny afternoon. I am very thankful that there is a sun in our sky today. There is no sun in the world to come. In the world to come God is our Light.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I got up to find my wife listening to a lecture by the late Dr. R. C. Sproul on her cell phone. I got myself a glass of cold water and sat in my living room chair seeking to wake up.

Carol cooked breakfast and I ate my food and then Carol and I talked and then prayed. After morning prayer I wrote in my paper diary and read till Noontime from a book titled, 'Christ's Prayer Before His Passion-Expository Sermons on John 17' Volume 1 by Anthony Burgess.

This afternoon after reading some 17th century English Puritan Spirituality I went out in our back yard to rake leaves. I forgot to mention I also read this morning a couple of chapters in The Second Book of Samuel/Old Testament/Bible. So has gone by this day thus far. I got out to read this afternoon a book titled, 'Reformed Systematic Theology: Man and Christ' Volume 2 by Joel R. Beeke and Paul M. Smalley.

Last night my wife and I watched television. Carol went to bed early and I stayed up till 11 o'clock PM messing with our main computer. I did read also last night some more of the book, 'The Price Of Peace: Money, Democracy, And The Life Of John Maynard Keynes' by Zachary D. Carter.

Well, I suppose I will close to read some Reformed Systematic Theology and see what comes in the mail today. There is no way of escape.

"[1] And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
[2] In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
[3] And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
[4] And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
[5] And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
[6] And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
[7] Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book." Rev. 22:1-7
