glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


they would be saved in their sins, but not from their sins

It is 12:41 PM Friday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a cold damp overcast gray day. A day to fall asleep someplace warm and dark.

I got up this morning around 5:50 AM but did not come upstairs till almost 7 o'clock AM. Lately I get up pull up the shades, turn on my lap top and listen to classical music, go back to bed and lay there waking up slowly. After I am somewhat awake I go upstairs to greet my wife and have a morning meal. It must be sad to wake up and have no one that loves you eternally.

I just remembered I did not eat breakfast, but cooked Carol eggs with bacon and cheese on a English muffin for her morning meal. After Carol and I had devotions and prayed I ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast.

I left to volunteer at our local library used books store The Book Nook at 9:35 AM this morning. At the Book Nook when not helping folks with their used books to be bought I read from a book titled, 'The Abuse of God's Grace' by Nicolas Claget. I also this morning before leaving for the library wrote in my paper diary and read 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.

Last night we watched some professional football (Thursday Night Football) and then around 8:50 PM we turned off the TV. We prayed and Carol went to bed and I went down into the lower level to read before going to bed. I mainly read last night till my bedtime from a novel titled, 'Darconville's Cat' by Alexander Theroux.

Carol should be home from the Book Nook around 3:15 PM. Time keeps zooming by. I will close to ponder.

"[37] In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
[38] He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
[39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
[40] Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
[41] Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
[42] Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
[43] So there was a division among the people because of him.
[44] And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
[45] Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
[46] The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
[47] Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
[48] Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
[49] But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
[50] Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
[51] Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
[52] They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
[53] And every man went unto his own house." John 7:37-53
