glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


once heavenly joys are tasted, base things are despised

I am down in the lower level writing on my lap top which is a gamble because I could lose any second what I am writing here. The WiFi goes in and out down here and in second all these typed words could disappear. I am down here to escape noise. I have been writing in my paper diary and reading for devotions from a book titled, ‘The Life Of Jesus Christ’ Part Two Volume 1, Chapters 1-57 by Ludolph of Saxony Translated By Milton T. Walsh.

I got up this morning from a state of sleep around 7 o’clock AM. I came upstairs around 7:20 AM to find my wife cooking herself breakfast. I toasted myself two frozen waffles for breakfast along with three sausages (sometimes I groan inwardly reading my boring diary, but life is not always one big thrill ride). I am just writing the life of an average white American middle-class old man. I am thankful I am an American and White. I do not feel guilty that I am a Christian white male born in America. I am who I am by the sovereign will of my heavenly Father. God the Father created me to be one of God’s Elect (the election of grace) white male born in the United States of America. Carol and I are very thankful for all of God’s mercies lavished on us In Christ Jesus.

After Carol and I had breakfast we had devotions and prayed. As Christians we are called to a life of thanksgiving.

Carol left this morning to do errands and I took Ollie our oldest son’s dog for his morning walk. When I got back from walking the dog I wrote in my paper diary and read from the book, ‘The Life Of Jesus Christ’ Part Two Volume 1, Chapters 1-57 by Ludolph of Saxony Translated By Milton T. Walsh.

At Noon Carol and I will watched on TV the Michigan & Michigan College football game. The day will go by.

Last night I mainly read from these two books before going to bed-

‘March Violets’ Crime Fiction by Philip Kerr

‘Last Words On Earth’ A Novel by Javier Serena Translated from the Spanish by Katie Whittemore

I will close before this entry disappears. Tomorrow is the last day of October 2021.

“[1] And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
[2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
[3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
[4] But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
[5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
[6] And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
[7] That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
[8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
[9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.
[10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:1-10
