glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


only in union with Christ that men can experience saving grace

It is 1:17 PM Thursday afternoon here in West Michigan. I am really not sure what do it is. Yes it is a Thursday because next Wednesday will be January 6, 2021 and I have a dentist appointment. Carol keeps reminding me tomorrow is New Year's Day 2021 and not today. Today is the last day of the Year 2020. It is all confusing to me this change of Time. Is not everything in the Eternal Now?

I got up this morning around 6:55 AM. When I got up I found Carol had left the house to go grocery shopping. Carol has been preparing food to eat tomorrow on the first day of the Year 2021. Carol invited Caleb, Emily, and the girls over for dinner tomorrow (also their dog Ollie). So Carol has been cooking and baking all day.

When Carol got home from grocery shopping this morning I had just gotten off the main computer. I wrote in my paper diary this morning and then I read from a book titled, 'A Radical Comprehensive Call to Holiness' by Joel R. Beeke & Michael P. V. Barrett.

Carol left again this morning to get a new battery for her cell phone. While she was gone I cooked myself breakfast and studied the Word of God.

This morning around 10:40 AM I left the house to go down the street to Simpatico Coffee to pick up a order of black & tan coffee beans. While out I visit a thrift store to look at their used books. I bought these used books this morning for our library-

'Revelations' A Novel of The Apocalypse' Editor Douglas E. Winter

'The Water Is Wide' A Memoir by Pat Conroy

'Coleridge: Early Visions 1772-1804' biography by Richard Holmes

'Solomon Gursky Was Here' A Novel by Mordicai Richler

When I got home it was going on 12 o'clock Noon. I ate lunch and wrote some more stuff in my paper diary. I then read from a book titled, '"Beatus Vir" Commentary On The Davidic Psalms' Volume 1 Psalms 1-25 by Denis The Carthusian.

Last night I watched college football and read till Midnight 'Novel Explosives' A Novel in 3 Parts by Jim Gauer. Now it the last day of the Year 2020. I suppose I will close to drift. All one can do is scream.

[1] O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
[2] Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
[3] O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
[4] If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
[5] Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
[6] Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
[7] So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
[8] The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
[9] Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
[10] My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
[11] God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
[12] If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
[13] He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
[14] Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
[15] He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
[16] His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
[17] I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
