glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


what I have been reading lately

It is 10:11 AM Sunday morning here in West Michigan. I am really out of it this morning. I got up this morning around 4:50 AM and feel like crap! But what's new. I came upstairs to find the house dark, Carol had not gotten up. I made a fresh pot of coffee and then I dozed in my living room chair. Carol got up around 6 o'clock AM. I got up from my chair and asked Carol if she wanted oatmeal for breakfast. She said Yes she would have oatmeal with me for breakfast. So I made a pot of oatmeal, we ate the mush, Carol read Tripp's devotional book 'New Morning Mercies' and we prayed. My wife keeps a routine no matter what. If the missiles were dropping on us from Russia Carol would make sure we had morning devotions. Carol wants to go out in the first wave of massive destruction. One would hope that the Russians would not want to destroy Western Civilization. There is no talk that Putin's next target is Berlin Germany. If Putin attacks Germany that would really start a terrible war.

After Carol and I prayed I went back and sat in my living room chair and dozed. Carol left for church around 8:30 AM. I woke up around 9:30 AM and wrote in my paper diary and decided to make a video showing folks what I have been reading lately in my broken state of being. I have been reading these books lately as a war of destruction takes place in Ukraine-`

The above books are the books I have been trying to read lately in my sick state of being. It is hard to read or be alive when we are being threaten with massive destruction by Russia. I do not see any benefit for Russia to destroy the world for chunks of dirt? It is all insane, but every day I wake up to a world gone mad. There is no love for mankind by the current world powers. Maybe these world leaders are now demonically possessed?

I will close to feel sick tired. We must pray as we wait for the end.
