glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


love for and knowledge of Christ are the signs of sonship

It is 2:06 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. Just now the sun has come out of the cloudy gray sky. Maybe we will have a little sunshine this afternoon. It has been gray and cloudy most of this day.

I got up this morning around 8 o'clock AM. I decided to sleep down in the lower level last night, because I think I sleep sounder down there. I need to catch-up on my sleep because I am becoming more and more tired. I am doing OK mentally but physically I am tired. So I got up to find Carol busy in the kitchen. I had for breakfast a bagel and a cup of coffee. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and read till Noon from a volume titled, 'The Life Of Jesus Christ' Part One Volume 2 Chapters 41-92 By Ludolph of Saxony Translated By Milton T. Walsh. In this volume in Chapter 82 Jesus goes up to the Feast of Tabernacles (John 7:1-14, 30-53) pg. 670.

Carol was gone most of the morning doing errands. She is now in the kitchen eating lunch. Caleb will drop off Josie when she gets out of school this afternoon.

In the mail today I received gift from a published and writer named Rich Harsch titled, 'America And The Cult Of The Cactus Boots: A Diagnostic' by Phillip Freedenberg Visuals By: Jeff Walton. UPS delivered this afternoon a book I had pre-ordered months ago titled, 'The Saddest Words: William Faulkner's Civil War' biography/literary study by Michael Gorra.

Last night I read till I went to bed from a novel titled, 'Dissident Garden' by Jonathan Lethem. This novel is wonderful and I highly recommend it.

Like I wrote I am tired so I will close for the day. Tomorrow is a Wednesday.

"[10] But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
[11] For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
[12] Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
[13] But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
[14] And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
[15] And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
[16] Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
[17] And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
[18] And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
[19] And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
[20] And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
[21] So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
[22] And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
[23] And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
[24] For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper." Luke 14:10-24
