glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


no one in Christ is a slave of sin

It is 1:17 PM Saturday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is another cold sunny day. It is 26 degrees outside at this moment. The day are getting longer and we are slowly coming to Spring 2022.

I got up this morning around 5 o'clock AM. Once again sciatica pain drove me out of my warm bed. When I get out of bed I immediately have to turn on our space heater due to the lower level being like an ice box. So I got came upstairs to find Carol still in bed. I made a fresh pot of coffee and then wrote in my paper diary.

Carol got up around 6 o'clock AM for the day. I made oatmeal for breakfast, Carol did not want any. After breakfast I read from a volume titled, 'Reformed Systematic Theology-Spirit and Salvation' Volume 3 by Beeke and Smalley.

Carol and I had devotions before she left to do errands. When Carol got home around 10:30 AM I went to Bluestockings Book Shoppe to their a dollar a bag used books sale. I bought these used book for $1.97 at Bluestocking's-

There is not much else to report. Last night I mainly read before going to bed from a novel titled, 'A New Life' by Bernard Malamud.
