grace leads the heart daily to the throne of grace

It is 1:51 PM Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. I am home from our local library used books store where I volunteer on Mondays and Fridays from 10 AM to 1 PM. The used books store was not busy, so I basically read and waited for my three hour shift to end so I could come home and cough my head off. At the Book Nook I read some more of the novel, Motherless Brooklyn' by Jonathan Lethem and some more of the memoir, 'The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle' by Francisco Goldman. I bought at the Book Nook today one used book titled, 'Flappers: Six Women Of A Dangerous Generation' biography by Judith Mackrell. Carol texted me on my phone this afternoon that she had landed in Denver CO. I texted back and she immediately called me. She was waiting for Beth to pick her up at the airport, she had uneventful plane flight. The only bad thing that happened was she had stubbed her toe going through security and had dislocated a toe. She had to take her shoe and sock off and relocate her toe. She is taking Ibuprofen pills for her sore toe presently.

When I got home from the Book Nook I ate some food. I am thankful for a home and food this afternoon. At our local library there are always groups of homeless people standing around with their belongings in plastic bags with no place to go and no food to eat. I am blessed to have a warm home and food to eat. I am blessed to have a Heavenly Home. Someday I will be in my Eternal Home the New Creation or what is called Heaven. It must be awful to be lost and homeless spiritually in this cold sinful world.

So I am sick with a bad cold these days. I have been up since 4:45 AM this morning. I should take a nap or at least find some cold medicine.

I will close to cough. The Lord is good.

"[1] Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
[2] In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
[3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
[4] And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
[5] Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
[6] Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
[7] If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
[8] Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
[9] Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
[10] Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
[11] Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
[12] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
[13] And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
[14] If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
[15] If ye love me, keep my commandments.
[16] And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
[17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
[18] I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." John 14:1-18
