glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell

It is 12:25 PM Thursday afternoon here in Western Michigan. I have lived over the years in these places in America, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., Oregon, California, Texas, Mississippi, and Michigan. I was born in Oakland CA in 1952. I have lived most of my life here in Michigan. We have lived in Holland MI going on 33 years. Carol and I have been married 43 years. Our oldest child is 41 years old and our youngest is 38 years old. Our middle child is 40 years old. Carol and I are both Grandparents.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. When I got up Carol was having morning worship. This morning I did all the usual things I do in the morning hours. Carol did leave with girlfriends around 10 o'clock AM for an overnighter up North. I noticed Carol kept saying over and over that she was going to have fun. My wife enjoys having fun. I do not recall ever having fun. I am in a state of being and not fun. Is being fun possible in this wicked dark satanic world? But my prayer is that my dear sweet wife will have fun with her girlfriends. Carol deserves to have fun after hanging around with me Mr. Doom and Gloom.

I did this morning read for a couple of hours from a book titled, '"Quid Gloriaris In Malitia' Commentary On The Davidic Psalms Volume III Psalms 51-75 By Denis The Carthusian. In this commentary on the Old Testament Book of the Psalms I am in Psalm 55.

This morning I did drive down to our local library to pick up some books I had set aside at the Book Nook, their used bookstore. I picked up these used books this morning so as to show folks in a video I plan to film sometime today-

'Rome: A History In Seven Sackings' Ancient Rome History by Matthew Kneale

'The Corporation That Changed The World: How The East India Company Shaped The Modern Multinational' by Nick Robins

'Cathedral' historical fiction by Ben Hopkins [Europa editions]

'The Practice of Kabbalah: Meditation In Judaism' by Steven A. Fisdel

'Song of Myself: The First and Final Editions of the Great American Poem' Walt Whitman

'The Memory Of Mankind: The Story of Libraries Since the Dawn of History' by Don Heinrich Tolzmann, Alfred Hessel & Reuben Peiss

After I left the Book Nook I headed home but stopped first at Action House thrift store to look at their used books. At Action House I bought these three used books-

'The Art Of Living And Other Stories' by John Gardner

'Where Shall Wisdom Be Found?' literary studies by Harold Bloom

'Christ And The Common Life: Political Theology and the Case for Democracy' by Luke Bretherton

I came home after Action House to have lunch and then to read and write till the sun goes down. Carol is gone and I am alone with my books and music. Life couldn't be any more fun (?).

Last night I mainly read late into the night, 'Last Things' A Novel by Victor Serge. Well I suppose I will close to wait Time flow circle of Light.

[1] Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
[2] Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
[3] Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
[4] My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
[5] Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
[6] And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
[7] Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
[8] I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
[9] Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
[10] Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
[11] Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
[12] For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
[13] But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
[14] We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
[15] Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
[16] As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
[17] Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
[18] He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
[19] God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
[20] He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
[21] The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
[22] Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
[23] But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.
