No: 30: God good and gracious to: in my wifes and babes health, enabling her to nurse, in many favours both for soul and body, good in his word to him be the praise

This week of december was a sad week to me, to review my ways and find the continuing strength of my corruptions. the dogging of vain thoughts, oh where shall I leave these. I stick in the mire oh Lord pull me out. I have covenanted more watchfulness oh Lord engage my heart to perform, make me not a slave to lusts and foolishness.
