the clear and blessed vision of your essence

It is 1:13 PM Saturday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is 71 degrees and sunny. The weather lately feels like the approaching of Autumn. I can feel another Summer coming to a close.

I got up this morning around 7:35 AM. When I came upstairs I found that Carol had left for her morning walk. I fixed myself oatmeal for breakfast and after eating mush I took my meds. Carol arrived home from her walk around the neighborhood. I was writing in my paper diary when she got home from her walk. Carol and I next had devotions and prayed. After we prayed I took a walk and when I got home from my walk I decided to go down to the library to buy a book I saw at the Book Nook yesterday. So I drove down to the library visited the Book Nook and bought the book I saw which was titled, 'Turner: His Life And Works In 500 Images' An Illustrated Exploration Of The Artist, His Life And Context, With A Gallery Of 300 Of His Finest Paintings' By Michael Robinson.

After the Book Nook I drove home and spent the morning and afternoon hours writing in my paper diary and reading from a book I started reading last night titled, '"Dominus Illuminatio Mea" Commentary On The Davidic Psalms [Psalms 26-50] Volume II By Denis The Carthusian Translation & Introduction by Andrew M. Greenwell.

So the day goes by normal. Carol has been outside doing yard work today. Not much else to report. I have not taken any Xanax yet. I usually take a half pill of Xanax late afternoon. Right now I feel OK. I wonder how the month of August will go for me. Will I continue making progress or go off the tracks and have a train wreck? All we can do is go from one day to the next. Pray without ceasing. Stay in the Word of God. Take my meds.

Well, I will close. Not sure what I will read this afternoon.

[1] The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
[2] When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
[3] Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
[4] One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.
[5] For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
[6] And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
[7] Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
[8] When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
[9] Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
[10] When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
[11] Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
[12] Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
[13] I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
[14] Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
