lost and found

It is 11:11 AM Tuesday morning here in West Michigan. It is a cold damp gray morning. I do not know if we will ever seen sunshine again in this life. I have a deep feeling mankind is about to be destroyed by the Russians. I see throughout the earth demonic madness has seized the minds of men.

I got up this morning around 8 o'clock AM. When I came upstairs I found Carol working on her Woman's Bible Study on the Epistle of James. I got myself a cup of coffee and sat across from her seeking to wake up to a new day. I had a couple slices of raisin toast for breakfast along with a bowl of cereal. Carol and I had morning devotions. In the mornings we read 'New Morning Mercies' a devotional book by Paul Tripp. Tripp at the end of every meditation recommends a Scriptural passage to read out loud. After reading a portion of Scripture Carol and I have a time of prayer.

Carol left this morning to pick up Cora and then to do errands. Carol and Cora are now home and I am down in the lower level typing on my lap top computer. I read for devotions while Carol was gone from an old devotional book titled, 'Morning Exercises For The Closet: Every Day In The Yea' by William Jay published in 1828. I also read from William Jay's book titled, 'Prayers For The Use Of Families: Or, The Domestic Minister's Assistant' published in 1820.

Recently I bought an old used paperback titled, 'When The Century Was Young: A Writer's Notebook' by Dee Brown. When I bought this paperback by Dee Brown I knew I had other books by him. I searched for my Dee Brown books but could not locate them. I knew I would not have gotten rid of Dee Brown's classic book, 'Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History Of The American West.' I had other books also by Dee Brown that I could not find. I searched for Dee Brown's books for a couple of days and then it dawned on me that the books by Dee Brown had been stored in a plastic container in a storage closet down in the lower level. I suddenly remembered that last Summer I shoved a plastic container filled with my American West books in this storage closed. So pulled out this plastic container and found a ton of books I thought I had given away last Summer when I got rid of a ton of books. Here is a list of books I found in this container-books I thought I had lost but now I have found-
